Nice photo! Does anyone know if the red "bezels" will stay or is it just protective tape? Would be cool if they let them stay, they look very nice.

I would guess those are engine inlet covers to prevent FOD from getting into them.

Ramasamy.
A very beautiful colour that's matching the airline.

The aircraft will be in the same spot outdoors for a long time while it is being fitted out so the inside of the engines look very inviting for birds wanting to nest or roost, hence the inlet covers. At least that's what I'm guessing

Awesome Catch! The way the windows on this Qatari A380 are make me think that this Airbus is part freighter! 5 Stars.

One important reason to have engine covers is to prevent airflow through the engine, as this would cause the turbines to rotate. You don't want a lot of rotation with the engine shut down because there is no oil pressure, hence no lubrication.

Gorgeous! I've been dying to see what it looks like! I literally lost me breath when I saw it.
