A (re)confirmation that the aircraft is no longer destined for Prince Alwaleed
"Airbus has also confirmed that Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, the Saudi Arabian royal who had previously ordered a VIP-configured A380, is no longer a customer for the aircraft, with ownership passing to another client.
However, the airframer declined to give further details of the former flight-test aircraft's new owner."
This is one of the oldest frames and it won't be improving with age on the flightline. Has Airbus considered buying it back at a discounted rate and selling it to a customer who is in a hurry to receive it's A380s, e.g. Emirates?
