That's nice to see a "real" EK A380 with GP engines.
This having had the full cs , was RR powered.

I know It will be great to have another 380 operator. Also LHR on 10th December .

Take that PM.  Wink


Ok, its good to finally see the GP7200's entering service. Its going to be *very* interesting to compare the operating performance of the two airframes.  hyper 

Anyone have a link to the seat distribution for JFK and LHR? (How many F/J/Y?) Will they have a lie flat J class seat? What will the 'staterooms' look like?

And just to think that in a couple of years there could be more than 10 daily A380s at JFK.

Will it be a frame with type certification or one of those with certification for individual airframes?

If delivery is due July 1st, why would they have to wait till October 1st to start service?

Initial deliveries will seat 489 in a 14F/76J/399Y config featuring the new lie flat Business seat and enhanced First private suite.

With later deliveries EK will also operate two medium-range configs; a 3 class 517 seat layout and a 2 class 604 seat layout.

She's going to look huge on the ramp at AKL from Feb next year.

The A380 was awarded its type certificate in Dec 06. The indivual certification is in liu of a producation certificate. It seems reasonable/expected that Airbus will get the producation certificate with MSN 26 (for QF) which is the first aircraft with "producation" standard wiring. All aircraft up to MSN 25 will need indivudal certification.

I must say the King of the Sky looks awesome in the colors of Emirates. Even better than in the colors of Singapore Airlines. Now I am waiting for the Korean Air livery on the A380. In my honest and humble opinion that will be the best looking A380 in the years to come!

Quoting Okees (Reply 8):

They are waiting until Oct1 because they cannot run the JFK-DXB-JFK daily with only 1 380...they need at least 2. However, once they get their 1st 380 I highly doubt they will let it sit in a hangar waiting for the 2nd one. I'm sure they'll run it to LHR, LGW, or maybe CDG to get crew familiarized with the A/C through actual flights.

Quoting NZerinDXB (Reply 9):

This is correct but I don't think they will be using the lie flat seat found on the 77W. If you look at the seat map, it shows that the seats in business class are stagerred around ie. row 7 has 7 a d g k while row 8 has b e f j. This must mean they are using newer seats probably similar to what EY offers but longer and wider.

Good to see this one did not jump the building. I know before someone points out, the one that did that was not an A380.
