So, again, I ask the Gods of a.net for help... is Virgin (or any other carrier getting the A-380) taking reservations at this time for the maiden flight of the A-380? If they are, do you know the price?

Quoting Squirrel83 (Reply 1): SIA should be pretty soon, I remember back that you can sign up for an email that will update you when it will become available.
If the Nov2006 delivery dates (as posted in another thread) are correct then reservations might be possible from Jan/Feb 2006.All dependent on what route they elect to for first, some route proving flights might be done in advance of them putting the 380's on SIN/LON and SIN/AUSTRALIA routes. So I would expect you might see it on the odd SIN flight to other far eastern cities.

That's a register to get news about SIA's 380 first flight... not actually to pre-book the flight!

The e-mail updates are solely to disseminate information selected by SIA about SIA's A380. Registration is not an entitlement to any goods or services or a seat on any SIA A380 flight.

Quoting BR715-A1-30 (Reply 2): I wouldn't want to be on no Maiden Flight... Thoughts of the Titanic would come to mind
Common misconception - Titanic wasn't a unique huge new untried design, she was the second ship of the Olympic class design. The first ship - Olympic herself - was launched a year earlier and gave many years of useful service.
Absolutely no relevance to aviation of course !
