According to Flightaware, Air France flight 28 is an Airbus 380 today? They aren't suppose to start on this route until June but is this correct?

Thanks for any information about this!

On the map in your link it says B772, but in the text block on the right it says A380. Could be a FA glitch, unless someone confirms otherwise.

I think its a glitch. According to FA it was also an A380 on the 16th, but no one reported it here. So it was most likely a 777 and business as usual.

Maybe a glitch, but the activity log below says that it was an A380 on March 16th as well.
The DL website is showing it as a B772.

On the other hand, my assumption is AF may be using the A380 on this route istead of sending it to NRT, although I am not sure if there are any changes on the CDG-NRT route due to the current conditions in Japan.

Supposedly one of the gates at A 20 and A 22 is raised up as if a A380 will be parking there. They are also the only gates currently at IAD that can handle the A380.... Just want to see if I want to make the trip out to take a look

By the looks of it, I hope you didn't waste your time. Flightaware also shows that all scheduled flights between IAD and CDG are to be operated by 772's today: http://flightaware.com/live/findflight/KIAD/LFPG

They are bringing a second A380 (replacing a 777) into JFK for at least Sunday/Monday due to conditions in Japan. I don't know what you actually ended up with at IAD, but it is possible it was an A380 for the same reason.

I contacted some of my coworkers who are working today at IAD and it ended up being a 777... Very disappointing but hey there is always June when we'll get regular scheduled A380 flights
