The A380 is going to be present in Singapore for the Asian Aerospace Show in Singapore.

Accd. to the Airbus Press Release they are bringing a fully painted A380 in SQ paintscheme

I was wondering does anyone have any information on this new A380 jet.

And of coarse, at the airshow, Airbus expects a big SQ order. My gosh... it would be an awful tragedy if they spent all that time bringing the A380 and SQ ordered Boeing.

SQ will be very pleased that Airbus goes trough this effort of showing a fully SQ colors painted A380 10 months before it's commercial launch, on Asia's biggest aviation event. In fact SQ could not wait for the real thing and has placed huge displays in Heatrow and Changi to show off, with their soon to be 'flagship'.

Wether they bring in an A380 or not will have little, actully certainly more leaning towards none, influence on SQ's upcoming order... and Airbus most certainly knows that aswell. No cookie for you Kaitak744.

It's closer to little than to none, IMO. Airbus would not participate in air shows if they didn't believe that the cost of doing so was covered by the benefit of a marginally higher chance of winning orders or of getting marginally higher prices for the orders they do win.

Sadly, I cannot be in SIN that week.

Firstly, this is my first post, so I'd like to say a warm G'day from down under!! Big grin

I wonder how much the presence of a certain company at an airshow/airport has to do with actually selling its product. I have no experience in sales or marketing, but do companies actually believe spending that amount of money is justified? Or is it just a case of keeping face. "If my competitor does it, then I must follow too"

The A380 decked-out in full Emirates livery at the Dubai Airshow last November didn't motivate EK to make a follow-on order; in fact, Airbus wasn't able to scrounge-up any A380 orders at Dubai, not even the hint of an order. Perhaps the event at SIN will generate some good publicity for the A380 program and, even better for Airbus, some fresh orders for the A380. Otherwise the standard refrain from the boosters will likely be...wait 'til Farnborough!

A decision on an order for medium sized jets may have been taken at last week's board meeting. However I am unaware of even the slightest hint as to what that decision might have been, or whether they failed to make one.

Hey i am flying to Sin specially for the air show and to see the A380.. but i dont think there is going to be any boeing there.. i have checked all the companies taking part and boeing isnt one of them. Quite a shame.. i was hoping to see the 772LR there!

I can't imagine that an airline decides to order an aircraft because its execs saw it at the airshow, so your question seems like a logical one. But A and B must figure the money is justified otherwise they wouldn't do it.

Perhaps it is more about creating a general awareness of products, with the idea being that this awareness shapes perceptions more than drives a particular sale.

Any A or B marketing execs on a.net care to chime in on this?

Most of us from the NinerVictor team are going. Hope to see you there. Pity the A380 wont be viewable by anyone since its parked on the WCA.

The sistic website states: "Witness the Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger plane, take to the skies decked in full Singapore Airlines colours"

The asian aeropspace website also states:

http://www.asianaerospace.com/aircraft_flying_display.asp

So lets hope the A380 will be flying on public days

In previous centuries, it was named showing the flag (but for kind of different reasons).
Orders are not discussed at air shows, merely signed there to attract media attention. Contracts are the results of long evaluations and negociations. Air shows are just the PR part of it.
Just like airlines spend millions on liveries the passengers hardly see, just like the flashy names for cars or whatever else, it is to make an impression in your memory. So that you remember the ac, the brand, the name,..., when it matters.

Yes the 380 is scheduled to fly on all the days 21st-26th Feb. Should be equally as impressive as the performance at the Dubai airshow.

I think Airbus won't be dissappointed this time around with the imminent SQ order, as confirmation of most of SQs 380 options might come at the airshow.

I shall be there for a couple of days just to witness the 380 go through its paces, like it never will on a commercial flight.

any inside info on that? I highly doubt they will confirm their order options until they put that plane for a while...

now a 777-200LR order would be nice.. bigthumbsup

I still remember when SQ first ordered their first 747s waaaaay back in 1972. There was so much feverish anticipation when the first 2 aircrafts arrived at the then Paya Lebar airport. No I didn't go.. but heard about it in the news.. besides I was too young.

One aircraft landed from the North and the other approached from the south. But not at the same time, of course, as there was only one runway!

Then, the 747 had 2 lounges aboard for their F class passengers.. the Raffles lounge, on the bubble, and the Silver Kris Lounge just located behind Door 1.

Ahhh. The days that SQ promoted itself..
