Every Qantas A380 in the desert

In August, Qantas announced it would bring 10 of its 12 Airbus A380s back into service, five of which are set to return to the skies in 2022, while the remaining two A380s will be retired.
It marks the beginning of the end of Qantas’ iconic A380 fleet, following the decided end of the Airbus A380 program, as Airbus nears delivery of its last-ever A380 to Emirates.

As such, now seems an appropriate time to take a look back on the career of the Flying Kangaroo’s 12 superjumbos, and perhaps even deduce which Qantas A380s we see soon returning to passenger service, and which two may instead have a different destiny.
