It seems it is confirmed that EK is getting the A380 to India,

On the 15th July 2010, EK 516/517 will operate with the A380 instead of the A330.

EK 516 DXB - DEL 1010 1450
EK 517 DEL - DXB 1615 1810

This is EK's one of the 4 dailies to DEL.The A380 is not on a scheduled basis just for that day.

Wow. good news for DEL!!
Way to go EK!!!!!

I think that this is a test flight from EK for the A380.

With the 90 A380, they are supposed to send some to India too  Wink

Does anyone know when the first EK A380 with the high density (J/Y only, with 600+ seats) is due to be delivered?

I think its a great move on EK's part....test to see if DEL T3 is actually A380 ready, there is no test better than a real life test. the aerobridges will be put to test, ground staff, groundhandling, catering, etc. etc.

This might help LH decide if they can send their A380 to DEL in the future even though the Indian government doesn't want them to.



come fly with me

That is right, with the A380 to DEL on the 15th ... DEL airport will be tested for the A380.

It is just a matter of time that LH will announce it's scheduled A380 to DEL from FRA.

I read those bilateral talks fell apart (current bilateral limits the aircraft to a '747 or smaller' per media reports that I've read. Did I miss a breakthrough in those talks?

Also, how close to is EK/FlyDubai to the weekly passenger cap on the Dubai/India bilateral? I suspect not many flights could be up-gauged due to the bilateral limits (I believe it was you Ojas who 'clued me in' that there was a cap... oops... I didn't believe it at first.)  

I'm excited about the DEL expansion    India will have the proper facilities for a hub.

No you didn't miss them, but I'm sure in the meantime tireless negotiations (i.e even more bribes) must have taken place and eventually LH will get what it wants.

No idea, but we all know eventually Flydubai will get more access to India; I just wish it is delayed as much as possible.

The flight is being done to celebrate the first 'official' day of international operations of the New Terminial 3 at DEL. The new terminal has three A380 gates (two-tier gates with three bridges) and EK will be the first airline to operate the A380 to this terminal. However, according to media reports LH wants to start A380 opns on a regular basis from India by the winter on the perennially overbooked DEL-FRA service, but is facing opposition from AI.
