>With A380 orders drying up, Airbus would appear to be clutching at straws to justify an airframe a lot larger than most airlines now want.

Suspect this isn't so much about new orders but finding reasons why existing customers should maintain their existing A380's (both ordered/in production and in-service) rather than handing them back.

Given Emirates are by far the biggest customer for the A380, I suspect this must be something they have asked for.
