I went at CAE on October 15, 2005 and someone told me that the A380 was supposed to be coming in YUL around March 2006. I'm a real YUL spotter and I can't wait to see this beauty so if anyone has more information about that please wright them down.
P.S.:CAE is a compagnie making flight simulator for big airlines such as Air Canada.

You got to be kidding me... I was supposed to fly YVR-YYZ-YUL-HAV and back in March, but our flights were switched to a redeye via YYZ. That would have been awesome to see the A380 for the first time .
If this rumour is true, YUL is going to be a complete zoo for spotters...
It says "Cold weather trials are due to take place in Canada shortly, where the aircraft has to prove full functionality under extreme weather conditions of up to minus 40 degrees Celsius."
Well, as every Montrealer knows, we are far from minus 40 (it is plus 2, as I'm writing)... But... Is Montréal a planned stop on the way to Yellowknife? Or, is the A380 to be tested in Val-d'Or, where the Concorde once was? (not likely, I suppose; the aircraft would be bigger than the terminal!)
Allo, Toulouse, une petite information serait très appréciée! (Knoxibus, j'adore votre surnom)

From what I've heard/read, the next cabin test aircraft will be used for long range flights, passenger trials and airport trials. This aircraft has yet to come to Hamburg and get a cabin fitted, so if this is the aircraft to do airport trials at YUL, it will be a very tight schedule for March.
