If they do buy an Airbus Super, California is ready to help. There is more than adequate parking in Mojave for the world-wide A380 fleet.

I agree THY is playing the US and EU card, but buying almost all its long range jets from Boeing... lets see what happens. They might buy a few A380s, and mostly 777Xs or go for a 747-8 and 777X mix.. I know they love the 777s they have now.

Why go for A380s that will be more expensive to operate than having an all Boeing cost- and fuel-efficient fleet?
