Interesting to read that Hi Fly is taking 2 ex-SQ A380s for lease and has customers in Thomas Cook and Norwegian. Could it be the beginning of a market for second hand A380s? (or "pre-loved" A380s, to use the new expression!)

HiFly seem to have found work for theirs at the moment, but I think its a limited market space. The issues with the dreamliner engines is certainly helping - there's lots of demand out there to cover grounded aircraft, but once thats resolved it may be tough to find work.

The last minute charter business is an interesting one - if they're desperate they'll take anything, as TCX showed. However, your aircraft can sit around for a while burning cash. You need an aircraft thats cheap to acquire to make it viable, hopefully second hand A380s are.
