But with one major difference: now they are reffering to both A380s MSN 027 and MSN 029, which are currently in Hamburg Finkenwerder for cabin outfitting.

There is something I don't understand:
MSN 027 flew the last time on April 02nd 2009 when it was transferred to XFW. First flight was on March 18th 2009. The test flights after cabin outfitting have not yet been started.
Did they notice this problem during the first flights? Wouldn't it make more sense to fix this problem in Toulouse before starting outfitting in Finkenwerder? As Finkenwerder is only responsible for cabin outfitting and painting I assume that this problem will be fixed in Toulouse prior to delivery, right?

Fine. They want it later, get it later, a little problem will be fixed, everybody is happy.

Interesting that after half a week Bloomberg seems to know less than some contributors to that thread knew. They do seem extra relaxed about when they get these two. You would have thought getting them for Christmas would have a certain logic.
