Eventually...
MEL-LAX
SYD-LAX
SYD-SIN-LHR
MEL-SIN-LHR
SYD-BKK-LHR
MEL-HKG-LHR
in no particular order except for MEL-LAX which will be the first.
744ER coming off MEL-LAX and being redeployed on SYD-SCL and SYD-LAX with the SYD-LAX 744s being redeployed to an extra JNB service, extra BNE-LAX services and reverting MEL-AKL-LAX back to daily 744 rather than the mixture of a/c that will be in place (A332 3x weekly).



56 types. 38 countries. 24 airlines.

I have my doubts, since QF and CX already have considerable capacity between SYD and HKG currently. The Qantas A380's will be used on the routes from MEL/SYD to LAX and MEL/SYD to LHR via BKK.

Actually, I am pretty sure HKG will see serviced on the MEL-HKG-LHR leg. They have quite a few A380's on order and there would be a few left over if they were only doing the LHR route via BKK

Please correct me if wrong, but I thought VS had opted out, or at least significantly delayed the A380 project?

No. no announced plans. All announced A380 routes are SYD/MEL-LAX & SYD/MEL-LHR. MEL-HKG-LHR may happen fairly early, or it may not depending on if QF wants to take SQ headon with the A380 on SIN-LHR. If they do then SYD-SIN-LHR & MEL-SIN-LHR will get the first Oz/UK A380 flights, if they don't then SYD-BKK-LHR & MEL-HKG-LHR will be the first A380 UK routes.

There is however a good chance that SYD-HKG will see the A380, perhaps with the second batch of aircraft, as SYD-HKG is the only Asian terminating route that routinely see B744s because of the demand for first class seats, which currently only the B744 have. So it is possible that A380s will replace B744s on SYD-HKG, but not for awhile, I'd guess.

Yes they do, daily. QF have not announced if the A380 will fly the LAX-JFK-LAX tag, but there's no reason it can't. I don't think you'll see it in 08, but will in 09 when a number of airframes have been delivered.

The BA terminal at JFK is one reason!

until 2013, but recently Branson was talking up the plane, but then talking about wanting the A380-900, so it may be that they are going to defer until the A380-900 is available, whenever that is.

who can really tell with SRB though, as one day he cares about the environment, and the next he talks about all the posh luxury he wants to add to an A380-900, which is not environmentally sensitive (since it would be added in place of seats...)



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
