I'd be almost willing to bet that one of the first ones sold will likely be to the rock group Iron Maiden.Logically thinking, it would be their/his next step up in aircraft. Will be interesting to see if he grabs one.
Just imagine the cost of the paint job!!

Does anyone know the operating cost of a A380? Just the base cost like fuel, engines, & maintenance.

Makes a G whiz (650) sound down right frugal at roughly 15% of that figure.

Yes. I think a few will buy just because they can. And the prestige factor outweighs practicality.

Yeah, maybe only to someone like a Saudi King. I don't see a whole lot of 380's becoming private jets.
