  1. Probably would take a lot of research but would be very interesting to see the amount of investment put into facilities upgrades to handle the A380 at A380 “spoke” airports and who paid for those. How many airports will have 90% of their lifetime A380 service be provided by Emirates? EK has ~50% of the total deliveries of the plane. A nice little benefit to EK; would be nice if they paid properly for those upgrades.
