rear of the upper deck has been stripped of its seating. As such, the capacity for light cargo is significantly increased. Across the two decks, only economy seating has been removed. As such, the business and first-class seats remain installed.
(...) The rear 2/3rds of the main deck can also be used for cargo, again on the cabin floor, and in the overhead lockers. When the top and main decks are filled with cargo, they have a capacity for 164.56 cubed meters, 16.25 in the overhead lockers, and 148.32 on the floor.
(...) Finally, at the bottom of the aircraft, there is the cargo deck, which is unchanged from its usual configuration. It can carry a total of 133.3 meters cubed of cargo, 77 in the forward compartment, 42 in the aft compartment, and 14.3 on the bulk compartment.

Three years? Not even almost three years. I don't think there is a list available for all Hi Fly flights but my quess it was parked at Beja and a few other airports at least a year and a half (total) since delivery. Even during it's latest revenue trip it was idle at KUL for 22 days!
Is it just on my laptop that page "media-center" won't scroll down or back up??
It scrolls on my IPad !
The words - "Hi Fly is planning the phase out of it’s Airbus A380 at the end of the lease term later this year, following almost three years of successful operations worldwide. The decision to not extend the initial agreed lease period came as a consequence of the covid-19 pandemic, that drastically reduced the demand for very large aircraft.
Hi Fly belongs to the very exclusive club of only 15 airlines to ever operate the A380, the largest and most advanced aircraft of all times. This aircraft was a testimony to how far human being can go in developing something so extraordinary.
Above all, the iconic 9H-MIP “Save the Coral Reefs” was inspiring, and carried this responsible message to hundreds of millions of people in the four corners of the world.
The Airbus A380 will be replaced in the Hi Fly fleet by additional Airbus A330’s, a smaller and more adequate aircraft for current market conditions."
