According to PanAmDC10, one of the members I highly respect for his neutrality and his focus on gathering pieces of evidence, Mr Chew mentioned on a press conference today that subject to certification the A380 delivery for November is on schedule and that they are happy with the progress that has been made in that regard.
Seems things have been ironed out between A and SQ with regards of the A380.

Not only it is great to see fly, even if it not the first time we see it fly, it is also interesting to see how the fuselage components were assembled. You can see that very well in the pictures Tom (Airbus A346) has posted.

Quoting PM (Reply 21): In the context of the A380, WINGS, that's a brilliant typo!
Oooops. Thanks for that PM.
It was meant to be DESTINED
1. To determine beforehand; preordain: a foolish scheme destined to fail; a film destined to become a classic.
2. To assign for a specific end, use, or purpose: money destined to pay for their child's education.
3. To direct toward a given destination: a flight destined for Tokyo. http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=destined

Quoting AndrewUber (Reply 16): OK I'm sure it's been discussed to death, but I'll ask anyway. If I wanted to fly on an A380 this year, what cities do you think SQ will start of with when they get their first bird?
some possible US destinations... LAX, SFO, JFK, EWR (not sure if they are 380 ready).
This photo shows how badly the " Whalejet " needs the white paint job to give it some photo character. For all those folks out there that don't like the whale nickname, I would say that after looking at this picture, the name Stubby,Chubby ,or maybe Tubby could be used by the Airbust slammers.
Go 748 it will look great any color !

Is there a date for the first passenger flight... or a month other then "end of the year" seems like they should come up with an interior sort of quick now
Although I am a Boeing fan, I have nothing against Airbus persay(in this thread )... so GO A380!! can't wait to fly you!

It has long been announced by SIA that SIN-SYD will be the first route - barring any further delay, this is expected to be in December 2006.
The first A380 is scheduled for delivery to SIA in November 2006 and prior to its inaugural commercial service, it will be utilised for crew familiarisation flights on regional routes (without passengers).
When sufficient aircraft are delivered to allow for a daily frequency to both SYD and LHR, the LHR service will be inaugurated.
