If everything runs to schedule, there should be two EK A380's on the ground in LHR (just) at the same time:

EK001 arr 12:15//EK002 dep 14:15

EK029 arr 14:20//EK030 dep 17:00

Ummm, unless I'm missing something, according to the times you posted there won't be two on the ground at the same time. EK002 is departing 5 minutes before EK029 arrives.

You are missing something. That's not the scheduled airborne time. That's the scheduled push back from gate time. Once EK029 arrives on time (or early) there will be two EK A380's on the ground. Considering that gate 307 is closed for installation of a third airbridge, my guess is that should there be a delay to EK002 departing on time, then EK029 will ground hold for the same gate - either 301, 3 or 5. If it was Friday that this happened then you would have 2 EK 380s and one QF 380.

Don't forget to take taxi time into consideration. EK2 will taxi for 5-10 minutes before takeoff. It's also possible that EK29 might arrive early.

And don't forget the average time from gate to take-off at LHR is about 20 mins.

I've noticed the last few times I passed LHR that QF weren't using their A380's just their old 744's. Is that true or just my bad luck?

That sounds optimistic for LHR.

I maybe wrong but I think the majority of QF flights to LHR are still flown by the 744.

Just your bad luck. There are the occasional cancellations due to "operational reasons". I can assure you that there is at least one QF 380 daily (well yesterday there were two, OQA/OQC). Though having said that, tomorrow's 31/32 (departing SYD/SIN today) is cancelled....

I guess this is the same aircraft that got pulled out of BKK.

I admit I was being optimistic.    Sometimes miracles happen.

Are the two EK Big Busses going to be daily or was this just once?

It would be sort of neat to see 2xEK 2xSQ and 1xQF Big Busses landing/taking off at LHR!

Just needs one AF and the LH Busses and then it's the complete collection!



There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

QF uses the A380 on routes via SIN:
5x weekly (X56) on QF32 LHR-SIN-SYD
2x weekly (56) on QF10 LHR-SIN-MEL

this will increase once QF receive more A380s

all other flights are flown with the 744

AF will be running an A380 into LHR in June/July/Aug.

Quote the AF website : The Air France A380 will be assigned to flight numbers AF1981 (Departing London Heathrow, 12:50) and AF1980 (Departing Paris Charles de Gaulle, 10:05) during all Summer weekends from Saturday to Monday, plus all Fridays in July.*

Just the LH left then

You won't even see 4 or 5 EK aircraft on the ground at the same time at SYD, let alone EK A380s.
