Unless someone is obsessive about aircraft, schedules and convenience seem the bigger priority. Recently we had choice of three rewards flights from MAD-EZE – early morning (A330), midday and midnight (both A350). The A350 is a nicer aircraft but the morning flight is miles more convenient and arrives in Buenos Aires in time for dinner. As @BAFIS says, also aircraft can change at short notice.

One consideration for the BA A380’s in particular is that they have massive reliability issues. We are very fussy indeed about our accommodation, but aircraft type, the seat and what food we get served aren’t really very important, particularly on BA Club World when the food is bad whatever you get and the wine is commensurately poor.
