The A380 would have to be the most comfortable longer distance aircraft I have had the pleasure of flying on.

There is an expectation that the CV-19 issue will see the bulk of the world passenger 747's permanently retired, only 747-800i may survive and even these are not guaranteed if the people numbers don't come back quickly.

With so many younger and smaller planes being delivered, A380's will suffer the same fate and quite likely EK is the only operator of the A380 if the current passenger numbers don't change alot between now and end of next year.  

Yes, they are not a bad plane to ride on.

The problem with 787, at least with China Eastern's configuration is, the seating arrangement is 3+3+3, very uncomfortable for couples should they have an unruly neighbour

Project Sunrise could also have a big impact the A380 as people may choose the non-stop flight.

I can see the reasoning behind the phasing out of the A380, but I have really enjoyed flying on it. One of its major virtues was that it was comparatively quiet. I've flown out of Melbourne on it on four occasions, and then returned home by A380 on three of those trips.  The last time was mid-2019 when I flew A380 from Melbourne to Singapore, and Boeing 777-300ER onwards to Zurich. The 777 was considerably noisier; very noticeable after the relative peace of the Airbus.

The 789 is quieter still.  I was at the back (behind the engine outlets) of the 789 JFK-LAX and then the front of the A380 LAX-SYD and had a much quieter trip to LAX.  Definately a nicer plane.
