Eithad operate a fleet of a fleet of 10 Airbus A380 aircraft in its long haul fleet. The A380 fleet is currently mothballed until September 2021, pending an up-tick in traffic. The airline also operates the Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 787-9 and Boeing 787-10 in its long haul fleet, with Airbus A320 and Airbus A321 aircraft in its short-medium haul routes.
