Air Zimbabwe to Lease a/c from Malaysia

I know Malaysian Airlines has spare A-380's, but what would Air Zim do with them?

You will quickly find Zimbabwean ministers, and their family members, requisitioning them for shopping trips abroad.

Malaysia Airlines are getting rid of their B777s and there is a photo going around of one in Zimbabwe Airways colours which is a rebrand to avoid Air Zimbabwe’s debts.

Possibly a bit too large unless traffic picks up again, B787 would probably be better but I doubt they could afford it.

BA used to fill the 777 on its Harare rotations if I recall?

Current load factors on established airlines do not always translate into equal success for competitors. Ask Air Burundi and Air Uganda how they have fared compared to RwandAir.
