How long of a delay is this to the original delivery date?

Anyone know what route this will start on?

I'll be on EK001 from Dubai to London Heathrow on December 22nd, operated by the mighty A380. I can't wait to see pictures of the cabin (especially the economy class cabin since I never get to fly in the front...).

So will 1 August be the first flight to JFK as 'speculated' here on a.net? or will it remain as 1 October?

This will be the first of many 380 deliveries and EIS for the GP 7200. Roll on EK...fill up the beast  Big grin

Will be interesting to compare in service fuel burn for both A380 power plants

So this will be the 7th A380 delivered (as SQ will get 2 more before then)?

A380s will be a boring sight in years to come. Seems odd to think that now.

LHR will see each day:

20+ BA A380s
10+ x VS A380s
3 x EK A380s
3 x QF A380s
2 x SQ A380s
2 x TG A380s

Still a very big question. The speculation was that a special 3rd flight between DXB and JFK would be introduced on August 1st as either a one time occasion or until October I believe?

I wouldn't think Emirates would send their brand new aircraft on such a lucrative route only 2 days after delivery. Why not DXB-DOH or DXB-BAH in the meantime for flight testing?

Boring is relative. I am still stunned by every B747 I see during takeoff and landing, and I doubt I will be less excited to see an A380 being around. But it will no longer be a reason for A.net Civ Av threads, thats for sure...

I think we will see the first revenue flights with the A380 somewhere in August. Should take a couple of weeks to get the crew familarized with the setting and we will be good to go.

EK is surely cooking up some form of a surprise. They are up to so many things at the moment, but have been keeping so quiet about it. So very unlike EK. So very unlike Dubai in fact!

Too true. People hang around the In-N-Out at LAX to spot, but don't consider it a full break until they see a 744 landing. It still has an impact, and so will the A380.

Ok, they didn't have a 'no duh' smilie.  Wink Quite simply, due to the slot constraints, demand, and fuel prices, certain city pairs will see most (or all) of the flights replaced with A380's.  Wink

But a small snapshot of the A380's that will end up on their way to LHR.

Good news, except for those who thought they had purchased a seat on the first flight of an EK A380 on 1 Oct!!

It is more than a rumour, it shows up now in the Emirates Booking engine, and you can book to fly between Auckland and Sydney now from early February 09.

Definitely a no-no on that, a machine that big and mighty will never get boring, i get immense satisfaction from seeing 747's roar over head at Hatton Cross or elsewhere at LHR, it's a majestic sight.
