Yes tickets are on sale...

What is interesting is the seat map in sabre...

I can't paste it as it doesn't paste correctley but the main highlights are

F & J are on the upperdeck with a small J section on the lower deck... Y is all lower deck

They are obviously launching a new J class the the seat arrangement is very interesting..

J class looks to be a 1 - 2 - 1 layout!! I will pay for that!

This seems to be confirmation that Emirates is using a derivative of the Thompson Solutions Business Class concept (which was confirmed to me by the creator, Mr. James Thompson some months back).

Furthermore, it should be noted that Thompson Solutions has licensed the product to Sicma Aero Seat.

I am assuming therefore, that the Emirates J on their A380 is the one in the top right corner of the picture found below:

Does this mean JFK will have 2x daily flights, instead of the current 3x? The larger plane could make up for the capacity lost from EK 204/205. Great to finally know when the first A380 will arrive in NYC !

wow!

I knew that JFK will eventually get an EK A380, but i did not know JFK was to be the 1st!

Looks like i need to book my first A380 flight ASAP.

As for the J class seats, yes they look fantastic, however, adding yet another configuration to the thousands more that have come to be the norm at EK.

The business class seats are marketed under the name "majesty"? Jeez, who thinks up this stuff? That is hilarious! I always find it interesting the sorts of names companies come up with to identify their products.

Nice to see the 380 is coming to the US!

Looks that way...

After all - the JFK-HAM-DXB flight departed 15 minutes after the new A380 flight....

Also EK are desperate for aircraft

They seem to be sending the A345 which operated the JFK-HAM-DXB flight to PER anyone know where the second A345 is coming from to operate the other DXB-PER?

Wow never would of thought the first EK 380 flight would be to JFK. But I guess it makes sense with the nice loads that Ek has been getting over there.

Any idea of whether the number of fligts will increase ... now that the HAM-JFK flight has been cut?

This is a JFK flight, not LAX, and SQ has not announced LAX flights yet, only SYD, NRT, SFO and LHR.

No kidding.

I was talking about the first scheduled 380 services to the US. I did however forget that SQ is coming to SFO instead of LAX first.

First, good to hear that EK is going to 'jump into' the long haul market with their first A380. Wow! I expected LHR to be first, but could it be a gate issue? (Notice I'm asking. When does EK move to T3 at LHR?)

Quoting EmiratesUK (Reply 16):

That is something most of the EK detractors do not realize. They have more demand for their product than they can deliver. So EK is playing a huge game to re-allocate airframes as fast as possible. The A380 delays have crimped the expansion plans of every A380 launch customer. Thus we have had a shortage of long-haul seats as airlines wait for their new airframes. Now that the A380 is entering the fleet (and soon the 788), we'll see some interesting new hubbing.

And when it comes to the A380... we'll be discussing EK quite a bit!  bigthumbsup   duck  That includes the completion schedule of concourse 3 with those 27 A380 gates.  wideeyed

It is going to be interesting to watch the order of A380 service around the world. QF chose LAX first, but I find it very interesting that SQ picked SFO... Is that a non-stop or via Taiwan or Tokyo?

The SQ SIN-HKG-SFO is currently a 747-400. That will eventually become an A380. However, they are flying to NRT first, so they might as well do the 747 SIN-NRT-LAX on the A380.

This is great news as safety appears to now have a higher importance than revenue - this is in regard to the lack of crew rest facilities currently on this 12 hr route. Pursers scared of losing their jobs for letting crew 'sleep' in Y seats can now breathe a sigh of relief. And pax feel safe with a crew that is awake for landing.
