I don't quite understand, or see the point of, the question as the OP specifically pointed out international passengers. European continental traffic is international, so why would it be excluded?

You can include MCO on the list for US Cities.

I would put MCO in the Top 10 US cities for the A380.

Virgin will almost definitely send one to mco (next summer 3 x 747's from LGW, 2 747's from MAN on certain days)

ATL has already publicly stated last year that the A380 is not welcome. ATL does not want to pay for the improvements that only supports the A380 as it wouldnt benefit the other carriers serving ATL.

I can't think of a more useless list. The list makes it look like STN and MAD are somehow bigger airports than ORD, because they have flights to such far away destinations as CDG and FRA. SFO doesn't even make the list but TPE is there because its on an Island and every flight is an international flight.

The list refers to the amound of international passenger traffic which MAD does see more then ORD.

Possible destinations? Just about every major airport. Silly question.

LIKELY destinations? PROBABLE destinations? That's a better question.

Quoting B773ER (Thread starter):
I think that the possible A380 Destinations are:

Think anything you want, but there is easily obtainable knowledge on your list.  Wink Every airport on that list will see the A380 relatively soon, with the possible exception of ORD.

Quoting CVG72 (Reply 3):

I don't see ATL, IAH, DFW, BOS, MSP, DTW getting the A380 any time soon. Possible? Again, anything's possible, but I assume the thread starter was referring to probable, not possible, airports.

Quoting Clipper136 (Reply 9):
Virgin will almost definitely send one to mco

VS is unlikely to fly the A380 at this point, so MCO seeing it is a long shot right now.

No... Like the places Iberia, Air Madrid, Air Europa, Pullmantur, Air Comet, Aerolineas Argentinas, Continental, US Airways, Thai, Pluna, Aeromexico, Avianca, Qatar, Egypt Air, and other airlines like such send their aircraft from MAD that carry a large amount of international passengers.

56 Shane : I can see it working FRA-SFO with LH. MUC-SFO seems to be jam-packed all the time too, but does anyone know if LH plans to dispatch the 380 from MUC?
