The Airbus A380 a birthday kid with wrinkles

After a decade in service, the Airbus A380 is still the biggest passenger plane in the skies. But questions keep coming up as to whether the giant has already seen its best days. Is it now a relic of the past?

Ten years ago, on October 15, 2007, Airbus delivered the first A380 aircraft. It was a big step for the European aerospace group — but in the end it was not the beginning of a new era of aviation. Now after just a decade in service, the question must be asked if the plane still has a future at all.
