I’d say that’s rather unlikely. They claim they want to have an easy phase-in of the second hand models. The A380s QR uses, are GP powered, whereas BA uses RR engines.

Air Lease sees most A380 operators planning to phase out the aircraft at 12 years, likely replacing them with B787s or A350s. The B777-9 is currently not as attractive due to the lack of real-world data, which is weighed down by the price tag.

Isn't that an awful waste in these times of circular economy? How many of those parts (percentage-wise) can be recycled?

Lessor Dr. Peters Group (Germany) has negotiated a compensation agreement with Air France regarding its leased A380s. An overhaul of the aircraft will be skipped, and instead, the engines will be leased out to pay off the loan.
