Hello,

just to let you know, there was a delivery flight yesterday evening of "A6-EDE" XFW-DXB as UAE7390.
When does it start business flights / what routes will be used for?
Thanks for replies.

Honza

They are going daily with the 380 June 1st on the following:
DXB/BKK
DXB/SYD
DXB/YYZ 3 times a week

SO guess it will get into the systerm between now and then.

I am still wondering when there will be a test/familiarization flight to YYZ. I would think this would be important prior to June 1 since no A380 has visited the airport yet. An aircraft newly delivered such as this but prior to going into daily service would be perfect.

Too bad they pulled their A380 service out of JFK and rerouted it to YYZ.

Apparently they are only allowed three flights a week into YYZ, so guess they have decided to use the BIG bird in YYZ rather than JFK. I recently flew SYD/DXB on the 380, a very nice ride so much quiter than anything else I have flown on. Does anyone know at what alitude the cabin is pressurized at. As usual not enough johns for Business Class, three is not enough for 72 pax.

I don't now the exact values, but I can assure you that the cabin altitude is much lower (almost at the planned 787/A350 level) and the humidity ist higher than in "conventional" planes.

Thought so, as the cabin felt very comfortable.

Quoting NZ107 (Reply 8):

Think they are better deployed on the SYD/AKL route than DXB/JFK which I heard the loads weren't that great. The flight I took out of SYD was full in every class.

Thanks to both of you for the info.

Too bad is to lose money. I'm sure as soon as JFK market recover, EK will resume the A380 flights to JFK.
But right now, makes more sense (and money) to fly the big bird to YYZ.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

Is that because of greater use of composite on the A380?? The 787 is to be almost all of composite is supposed to increase the humidity as well.

How will EK schedule the plane, aside from the 3 flights a week? not parked, I hope.

You know the market must be very bad if JFK can't support at least 3 flights a week over YYZ ...

Does anyone know when is the first EK A380 flight to India and which routes are planned? I think BOM will be the first route.

Since when? I saw one today, Apr 26th, coming in for a landing at JFK. Maybe JFK sees only EK A380 seasonal service.

It seems for the past few years that our summer arrives in April and lasts around two weeks. It's meant to rain all next week so I suppose the summer is over for now! Was a good day to catch the A380, it's got quite a distinctive sound actually and it's what made me run to the window and look out.

25 AirIndia : Is BOM 380 ready yet? I guess only BLR and HYD are currently 380 compatible. DEL would be by early 2010, not sure about BOM.
26 Ikramerica : The cabin pressure is at or better than the 747 at high altitudes, which is lower than most other jets. The A380 is designed to maintain 7000ft press
27 Rj777 : Man, it seems like just yesterday, SQ had the ONLY A380 in commercial service. Now they're popping up all over the place! WOW!!!
