Quote:

12.12.2006, Köln (dpa) - Für den Super-Airbus A380 ist der Weg für den Liniendienst frei. Die Europäische Agentur für Flugsicherheit (EASA) in Köln teilte am Dienstag auf Anfrage mit, dass die «Muster- Zulassung» für das Basismodell in Toulouse übergeben werde. Die Basisversion sei von der EASA als sicher befunden worden, alle Bauvorschriften seien eingehalten worden, erklärte eine EASA- Sprecherin. Jedoch müssten die von den einzelnen Fluglinien gewünschten Modifizierungen später eigens zugelassen werden. Der A380 für 481 bis 853 Passagiere ist von 42 EASA-Experten in Hunderten von Flugtests und Einzelprüfungen getestet worden. ///

Type certification is not dependant on this, as the A380-800 has successfully demonstrated its ability to perform safe RTO's already.

What is to be done is a RTO at a slightly higher TOW than the ones done before, so the A380 sees it current MTOW limitation raised to its designed MTOW limit from the MTOW limit it currently has been given as derived from the initial lower energy RTOs...

Expect this to be done after the well-deserved vacations.

Sabenapilot, what IS the specific MTOW figure to which this certification applies?

That´s it , but some Boeing cheerleaders bash this A/C all the time here at A.net
it´s important to see that the A/C technical is very good and that the delays are Production Problems and not because the A/C isn´t good.

With yet another 10 months of waiting before it is delivered to SQ.

Sadly.  Sad I'm still looking forward to flying on it though.  Smile Since SIN-FRA apparently won't be getting a WhaleJet (at least not SQ, and LH are more likely to upgauge to the B747-8 given their loads) and I don't fly SIN-LHR and SIN-SYD, I'll have to hope for LAX-NRT or perhaps SFO-HKG if the payload/range performance is sufficient.

Congratulations to Airbus!!! This is only 10 months after scheduled first delivery. That must be a new record.

You know I was just driving back home 10 minutes ago and could see a 380 on final approach to TLS (the runways are parallel -about 3 km. to the south- of the road to where I live) and I was in awe, what a wonderful bird in the sky, and it got me thinking of all the people on a.net who love to bash Airbus, as can be seen above. Why don't you all just drop you nonsensce. True aviation anthusiasts would only be wishing the best for each manufacturer. If you don't have anything positive or even interetsing to add to these discussion, then just bloody refrain from entering the thread, as there are many of us who enjoy reading about Airbus milestones, and those of all other manufacturers without having to resort to childish and very tired snide remarks which are of no news. Wow, I think this could actually be one of my Christmass wishes... not that's sad!



Long live Aer Lingus!

SQ are switching the FRA flights from the Jumbo to the B777-300ER. The busier of the two SQ flights flies wingtips with the LH flight on which SQ codeshares. The LH flight is never as full (presumably due to the different service levels). By downgauging, SQ keeps the highest revenue passengers and shifts the lowest revenue passengers onto the codeshare.

Remember, SQ have only 10 WhaleJets on order. That's just enough to fly 2x LHR, 1x SYD, and SIN-NRT-LAX and one or two shorter flights like HKG, ICN, or NRT.

Well as soon as they firm up their 9 options, it will allow for some more manoeuvrability.

Superjumbo is definitely most comonly used however BBoyz on this forum call it Whalejet.
