Bloomberg: Ancient Jumbo Jets Resurrected re First- and Business-Class Demand

This story is a week old so Iím sure it must have been posted somewhere but I canít find the thread. The ďAncient Jumbo JetĒ being resurrected is the A380. Most of the A380s being returned to service are around 10 years old, right? If thatís ancient, I have some ancient wine and scotch Iíd like to sell you.

ĒThe fuel-inefficient 747 and A380 are being resurrected, thanks to their large numbers of premium seats.Ē

The rest of the article is pretty reasonable but the headline gave me a real laugh.

While I have traveled multiple times in first on a 747, my only time on the upper deck was back in the day from ORD-MSP. I think the flight went on to HNL, IIRC.
