Another closer airline have decided as part of its sweeping three year COVID recovery plan announced today, Qantas has confirmed that the A380 will not fly for the airline until at least 2023. The giant jumbos will be heading to California for the meantime, to be stored in the vast facilities located within the Mojave desert.
It would be a rare sight to see foreign A380s in Changi for some time to come.

Why are they not storing in Alice spring? SIA took up all the lots?

From another source: 3 of their A380s are currently parked at LAX and these ones will be moved to Mojave.

Qantas likely will moved all of its 12 A380s to Mojave as it would be easier for them to look after and maintain all in one spot and as these planes will be parked for at least 2 years till 2023. Only thing is many operators who are parking their A380s for a year or more, may by possibly just retire them as they will find the new twins much more efficient to operate at lower costs. Apparently 2 A350s or 787s can fly to the same destination as a A380 at even a much lower cost.

Any idea which flight will be diverted to pick them up on the way back?

I would be surprised if Qantas reactivate all these aircraft in the long ran, if they store at ASP and decide to scrap them they would have to get them back up to flying condition only to fly them to Mojave anyway.

With SKN finally emerges as a ver 3 making it a total of 8 A380s ver 3, t will be interesting to see whether any more older A380s will be converted to ver 3. Doubt SIA will be operating all 19 A380s even post covid19.

A part of me wonders whether SKN could be pressed into service for flights to HKG - I expect plenty of demand from there especially given recent happenings.
