According to this source, British Airways is looking to add up to six second-hand A380s.
I wonder will they be taking them from Oneworld partner Qatar Airways, who have said they wish to phase out their A380's?

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.

EASA has ordered inspections on some older A380s after some cracks were detected in wings.
