According to the Dutch news (RTL4) 10.000 persons have already subscribed to the first commercial A380 flight. This flight will be Singapore Airlines from SIN to LHR. They quote an SQ official who said that they will have a lottery to determine who can fly. More info on the SQ website.

i heard about all these people wanting to fly our first a380 flight. it's quite exciting for us cabin crew as well, with the a380 training and everything. on top of that i'm going to be a chief stewardess as well, so by the time our first a380 making her first journey, i would be wearing the red sarong kebaya uniform! it's going to be bloody brilliant!
Ladies & Gentlemen, we will now demonstrate the use of the safety equipment on this aircraft...
