Too good to be true,

SQ will never have their A380 by December. BTW on SQ's own res system they say aircraft is a 747-400.

even more rubbish...SQ won't be sending the A380 to London when it first enters service, it's innaugral route is the Sin-Syd service.

Since it's showing zero availability in all classes, just what kind of ticket could you buy?

I hate to burst any bubbles but until SQ gets 2 or most likely 3 aircraft, don't expect to see anything scheduled much beyond HKG. They need to get crews trained and the rotation really needs 3 aircraft to make it work right.

Quoting Dc10s4ever (Thread starter):

Those tickets were available when they still planned to operate the 380 mid 2006 - there was a thread here in the forums.

In the thread I talked above it was LHR-SIN....strange that it wasn't SIN-LHR - but maybe it has changed.

Yes they have to be trained but the A-380 is a flagship so a long haul route is possible too.

I assume you mean route??? Perhaps you could explain how they can do it with one aircraft. Take a look at the block times, SIN-LHR-SIN is over 24 hours.

How does a flagship have anything to do with long haul route? Even SQ said that they will first fly SIN-SYD before anything long haul.

SQ, in their right mind, would not schedule an LHR run with just one A380. What would happen if the A380 goes tech? All those people who paid for the new First Class won't be too happy!

I think airlines have to guarantee a flight, a time, but not an a/c type. Am I correct?



When I doubt... go running!

The only guarantee is that they'll transport you from point A to point B. Plenty of disclaimers in the Contract of Carriage for how they won't guarantee it's on the particular flight you booked or at the time it's scheduled, let alone the aircraft type.

Say what? You don't normally call the airline before booking the ticket asking '...oh, by the way, how long has the 737-800 we'll be flying been in service? 3 years? No....'. Gimme a break.

Woute? Maybe he's really Barbara Walters.

Anybody who buys a ticket now trying to get on one of the first A380 flights is likely to have a very nice 744 ride IHMO. If they can at least put the wing test issue officially to rest then maybe we could talk seriously about it.

this is very very true, and made me chuckle.

A representative from SQ confirmed to me that SIN-SYD is definately the first route sometime in mid-December, with the LHR service following a few weeks later at the beginning of Jan. However I was told this before the recent A380 setback announcement, so it will probably be even later now, as they wont have enough aircraft to guarantee the service.

I would imagine a downgrade to a 744 will involve people being thrown off the flight, although I maybe wrong on this last bit, as I seem to remember seeing somewhere that the SQ 380 will have roughly the same number of actual pax seats as their 744's do?.

Because i think an aircraft is as safe on Day 1 of it's service as it is on day 1000!!

Why, if they get you to your destination the type of aircraft you fly on does not mean a thing.

It is very possible that the first flight will be from London to Sinagpore, as it may be more efficient since the plane is starting in Europe anyway. When Ethiopian Airlines, for example, has taken delivery of new planes, the inagural services have always started in the US since the plane is built here. They have even gone so far as to ask for the right to sell tickets originainting in Seattle.


a.
25 Scanorama : SQ announced the first A380 passenger flight will be SIN-SYD not too long ago.
26 777STL : They also don't guarantee a specific seat, let alone a specific aircraft model.
27 OzGlobal : Uumm, check your map. SIN-SYD is 7-8hrs which by most American standards would start to be 'long haul', wouldn't you say?
