Even though CDG is a Skyteam hub, I am still surprised LHR is not getting the first one. To be honest though, I am fairly ignorant on the passengar traffic between the three major airports listed by the o/p. I go through CDG a sprinkling of times throughout the year, so I hope I get to see it!

I am not surprised to learn Paris will be the very first European city to get the KE A380.More than one year ago , KE was thinking at LAX and CDG first , without mentionning JFK.
Afterall do not forget Paris was the very first KE station opened in Europe in the mid 70s with 707s.
Even more , before beginning with pax , KE had opened Paris with regular 707 cargo service once a week.
I will not be surprised as well to learn Asiana will send their A380 to CDG.

I'm still looking for flights to AKL in September. The A380 seems to not have been implemented into their booking systems yet. Fares are really good (€1082 CDG-ICN-AKL r/t) as well. But I'd only do it for the A380.
Their website is an utter and absolute joke though.
Why should it be LHR?
Koreans like Paris big time and an enquiry showed even for business they prefer france than the UK: LG smartphone research center for Europe has been built close to CDG for that reason btw, and Samsung has signed a deal with the French administration to make its electronics imports to the EU by air go through CDG in a preferential way.
Quoting titus95 (Reply 2): I will not be surprised as well to learn Asiana will send their A380 to CDG.
I didn't know it had ordered the A380.
But anyway their 772ER is always full, though it's not a daily flight to CDG I think
