Quoting A350 (Reply 7): Will it be a frame with type certification or one of those with certification for individual airframes?
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!

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.
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.
