oh boy, where have you been man
Yes the A380 is in Service SQ had 2 deliveries and one frame is doing SIN-SYD while the other frame is doing short hops to KUL etc to train crews. They will be getting the 3rd soon and March 18th is the first flight to SIN.
So the answer is NO you won't be seeing the A380 at LAX.
Other Things of Importance That Happened in The Mean Time:
BA ordered the 380
LH ordered the 748
Boeing developed a plane dubbed the 787
2 guys started a search engine a named it "Google" they are dominating the search market.
Sorry man not busy at work couldn't resist It's all in good heart..
We might see some hilarious replies so thanks for that.
EDIT: The OP's thread title was: Is The 380 In Service Yet? so it was funnier with the original title.

Quoting Stitch (Reply 2): Daily A380 operations to LAX will not be likely until the latter half of this year when QF starts their MEL-LAX service.
Sadly, the A380 will be a rare bird to see until 2010 or so. The reality is that most non-aviation fans won't even realize that 'The Airbus' (as our local news calls it) is in service until 100 or so are out there. Maybe a bit earlier for I see the A380 dominating flights to/from Australia pretty quickly.
