Flights EK 073 and EK074 will be operated by the A380 starting in January next year.

I am sure the A380 will be much appreciated by French travellers, especially those who intend to use DXB as a gateway for destinations futher East:

This is maybe an answer to AF's decision to use its A380 on CDG-DXB-CDG, at least for the first weeks of operations ...

This is major news, thanks for sharing. At least KLM remains protected since EK has not indicated any movement towards starting DXB-AMS which remains 100% KLM territority with 11 weekly flights.

I think it's just a matter of time before EK start service to AMS. Then KLM would be forced to cut back to 7x weekly service to DXB.

I agree about KE, but do you really think TG will take delivery? It seems unlikely to me. I expect TG to convert their WhaleJet orders to A350 orders.

As far as I know not one of the Middle Eastern carriers has expressed intrest of starting operations in AMS. Too little O&D traffic. Around 70% of KLM pax are transfer passangers.
Only Iran Air, Royal Jordanian, Egyptair and Syrian Arlines fly here The last 2 twice weekly. The other 2 are no big threat to KLM.

It will be awhile before the big ones come here.

Back to topic, will all the carriers with A380's go to the new terminal in CDG?



Zanair flight, please hold on finals as we have to clear rhino's off the runway. Next flight: AMS-FRA-AMS

Very nice.  Smile Any idea about the time for delivery of the first A380s to KE and the possible time of launch of CDG A380 service?



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

I think they will have to as it is the only terminal allowing boarding with two levels.

Must be. From what I've been reading on threads, CDG is not a high premium market. Others have speculated the profit was hauling the cargo.

I wonder if the 2nd DXB-CDG flight will really remain a 77E. This capacity shift might force a downsize to an A332. (Speculation on my part.) I also wonder about the economics of hauling around the crew rest. When is EK expected to recieve the first of the A388's with F class but no crew rest? Is it before or after the regional configurations?

I notice this flight leaves Dubai at 08:00! Wow... I would have thought an earlier departure as part of the 1st hub-wave. I guess connections would just wander around DXB for hours. I do notice the return time to DXB is excellent for connections though...

Which begs the OT question, how is the new Terminal/Concourse during the primary connective hub-wave? Does it feel empty outside of the 1st and 2nd hub-waves?

Quoting EddieDude (Reply 6):

I second this question. When is KE scheduled to receive their first A388's now? CDG, LHR, JFK, NRT, and LAX seem like the obvious first routes for KE (not in any particular order).

Is EK going to use this as a justification of the high premium they charge on Y and J fares compared to AF?  Yeah sure

Soon EK will bring 380s to Nice. They will make an awesome sight at take-off and landing.
Then there will be the "Flying Palace". Mr Bin Talal likes the Riviera. He visits here often.
Nice is such a scenic airport, even watching them from a distance will be interesting!

KE at CDG with A380 , not before the beginning of 2010.

They will open LAX first , then CDG.


Zvezda

I am pretty sure TG will NOT cancel their A380 order , but will defer the delivery.
They already expressed their intention to buy A350XWBs.

380 on FCO is confirmed and starts at 3x weekly from 2nd Dec and rises to 7x weekly on the 1st Jan

ICN is 7x weekly from 1st Dec.

It wasn't performing satisfactorily on JFK, hence stopped. It could perhaps go back at some point, but I doubt it. YYZ became a 380 route instead, operating 3x weekly.

Hmm??? Was this a quote? I think "beginning of 2010" is not possible. Acc. to http://plane.spottingworld.com/A380_production_list they will receive their first A380 in Q3 of 2010. Just for comparison - LH will receive their first A380 at the beginning of 2010 and two of them are already in the FAL. Parts of KE's first plane are already built but not yet in TLS.
But I am sure you know all this.

I'm sure it will happen soon. KL is pricing itself out of the market. MAny of my clients already take EK from DUS or EY from BRU.

That's the point. KLM passengers stop at DXB, no connections. EK can get them from AMS to anywhere in the world.
