Given China's constricted airspace and the need for domestic wide-bodies, I'm surprised CAAC (although no longer an airline) hasn't been approached with the idea of more A380s for regional use, such as on trunk routes like HKG-PEK, or CAN-PEK. That said, Amedeo might be better off trying to lease se...
