Airbus Now Looks To Bring A380 To LAX

As part of a bigger article discussing the ground breaking of major renovations at the TBIT facility, looks like LAWA and Airbus are working on bringing the A380 to LAX on the same day as the previously announced Lufthansa demo at JFK.


On Monday, however, officials appeared to be near a deal to bring the 555-seat aircraft to LAX, after Airport Commission President Alan Rothenberg and Qantas Airways sent strongly worded letters to Airbus in Toulouse, France, demanding that it reconsider its decision.

"We're discussing the possibility for an Airbus A380 to land at LAX on the same day it lands in New York," said Ian Gregor, a spokesman for the Federal Aviation Administration, which must approve plans by the manufacturer to land the jumbo jet in the U.S.

Interesting, why do the FAA have to approve a certified airframe (by the FAA no less) to land in the US?

Maybe it's the airport not the plane that needs to be certified?

Putting money on they are still ALL being flown as experimental thanks to no production cert.

Would be a spectacular event to have one at each coast at the same time - I hope this works out.
