Hi i was just wondering at what times do the A380's land/take off each day from the three different carriers? And do they have to land/take off on a certain runway or can both runways accomodate the A380? Thanks very much!

Quoting Virginblue4 (Reply 2): Thank you very much! And just about the runways can they both accomodate the 380?
Yes, both runways are used for A380 ops at LHR. In fact, yesterday, QF was departing from 09R and just as it rotated, EK touched down on 09L. Amazing timing!
Quoting LHR27C (Reply 4): Yup, although restrictions on the taxiways (not all taxiways at LHR are Code F).
I did notice that the QF A380 departed from stand 406 and instead of taking the southern parallel taxi-way past cargo, it had to cross the southern runway, then turned left and taxied to the 09R threshold for departure.
