I did try searching for this tread to no luck. Perhaps its there but I didn't find it. Anyway, will the A380 come to JFK. My opinion is not anytime soon but I know some of you know better then I. I see them working on some of the taxi ways like the bridge that goes over JFK expressway. So any thoughts, comments. thanks in advance.

AF and VS have already stated that one of the first few destinations for their A380s will be to JFK. VS operates out of T4 which is already equiped to handle two of them and AF operates out of T1. I don't know if that terminal can operate the A380.

I don't know about other operators but I would think that LH might operate the A380 to JFK as well.



That which does not kill me makes me stronger.

Do you mean the current prototype? Probably not. Scheduled airlines in the next couple of years? Absolutely. Air France has already mentioned they would be bringing the 380 to JFK as well as Virgin Atlantic. I would assume all major world cities would see the 380 like New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London, and Tokyo to name a few.

But can JFK handle the size of the plane. Arent' the taxiways to small for the wingspan of the plane.

LON JFK tends to be a high frequency market, so I'm surprised by VS's move.

Perhaps its one way to compete against BA's excellent london schedule. If anything I can See BA Increasing frequency, and reducing aircraft size to 772.

Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic, and Singapore Airlines all stressed that the A380 will be essential to their San Francisco service.

The PA is rebuilding the taxiway bridges over the Van Wyck and JFK Expressways. Terminal One Group is rebuilding gates at T1. T4 is already ready to handle the A380.

Work is also being done on 13L-31R.

It doesn't have too. PA, local and state gov't might not want or have the money to do what is needed to have the plane come to JFK. It will come evantually but not right away. Theres too much work to be done.

For whom? With the exception of B6 and their A380 service to SYD starting in 2009, JFK is basically an O&D-centered airport, with limited exceptions (UA LAX/SFO-JFK-LHR or token OH services to places like ORD).

The PA has already allotted money for the upgrades to handle the A380 at JFK....the taxi bridges over the Van Wyck are the first thing as they have to be strengthened to handle the extra weight of the A-380...the other upgrades will take place later...widening taxiways etc...

Is that why Termanil 4 was built with the A380 in consideration?  sarcastic

Nobody would want to fly on UA on that route since UA serves LHR directly from both LAX and SFO. JFK is strictly O&D for UA but it is an international gateway for AA and DL.

A bit of history, the morning departure that United Airlines used to offer JFK-LHR orginated in SFO.

As it is already said above Air France, Lufthansa and Virgin as the three European A380 customers will use the A380 to JFK. Singapure and Emirates will fly to JFK as well. JFK is an essential gateway for these airlines into the American market.

Any chance that EWR will also see the A380 ? Lufthansa uses the 747-400 already from FRA to EWR.



It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

No, Liar001, we aren't. Let's go back in posting history. In Reply 7, MidnightMike said JFK was a major hub. In Reply 13, Cubsrule asked, "For whom?" Then, in Reply 16 you said "Try American Airlines, and Delta Airlines!"

Now, I realize you have difficulty keeping up with which username you're using at any given point in time, but I would hope you'd be able to follow a conversation just a little bit better than that.

Skipping around all the bullcrap.....I expect to see Virgin, Air France, Singapore, Qantas, and perhaps Korean operating the 380 into JFK. Last I read, LH wasn't sure about the 380 into JFK yet.

Perhaps Emirates, but who knows.....

29 RayChuang : San Francisco (SFO) will likely be among the first airports in the USA to at least get two A380 flights per day--Singapore Airlines' SQ 001/002 fligh
