I also suspect the lack of A380s also has something to do with the lack of successful international transit routes, which seems to be a major reason why EK and SQ, for example, do well with these planes. Partially, this is to do with the size and location of the United States. But it is also to do with the general requirement to pass through the increasingly onerous US Immigration and Customs to make such a transit. The US ought to be the major route between Europe and NZ, for example, and a competitive one between Europe and Australia, but it isn't.
