Future TechnologyCovid-19 has brought catastrophe to the aviation industry. With fleets grounded and passenger numbers in free-fall, the A380 is now too big and costly to fly. With a price tag of $445 million, the A380 is one of the most expensive and lavish airplanes ever built. It hasn’t been the game changer Airbus had hoped. Last month we saw the last A380 assembled roll off the assembly line in Toulouse. Production will end at just 251 A380s produced.
