Airbus 380 – too “fat” – too short-ranged

What went wrong with this prestigious Airbus product? The below comment gives some background. Too heavy, only usable for medium distances (which surprised me).

The Chinese and Indian markets could have been targets but it seems only Emirates was willing to buy. I assume the Chinese buy Boing or – soon use their own airliner.
