Lufthansa returns with a daily A380 from 25 March on SFO-FRA v.v.

LH454 FRA 0935 SFO 1155
LH455 SFO 1420 FRA 1005+1

Lufthansa is the only airline operating an A380 into SFO this summer, as AF won't be returning with A380 service.

A shame AF discontinues its A380 service to SFO. I think that Singapore could possibly do it from NRT in the near future.

You don't think SQ would sooner upgrade SQ1/SQ2 to the flagship of the fleet? In which case it would be flying HKG-SFO   I think that is the more likely scenario (if and when the US economy substantially improves). I was suprised when it was downgraded to the 772.

SQ will not open a new route from NRT-SFO. If anything, it will be from HKG/SEL

It was downgaged to a 77W.

I think the next carrier at SFO with the 380 will be EK. Once the higher TOW weight a/c have been delivered.

I see BA at some point in the near future. I always struggle going to SFO on staff rebate. Maybe an A380 and a 744 ? Great from a slot perspective ! Roll on the A380 at BA.

SQ only operates a route to ICN and HKG (continuing on to SIN) and it would be evident that this would upgraded from a 77W to an A380 at some point.

I doubt they would start a route with the A380, but rather with smaller equipment.

SQ just had their 16th A380 delivered (9V-SKR) and still has 3 more to go, which will all be delivered within Q3-2012. In theory it would be possible for them to upgrade SFO-HKG-SIN from W12. Not sure how many planes that route actually requires, but I think they could with two.



Future flights: CPH-BRU; CPH-NRT-MNL; MNL-PVG-CPH; CPH-LAX

Why did AF downgrade? Did traffic not materialize as they hoped?

They moved to LAX, I assume, because 1.) More premium traffic, 2.) Delta's stronger presence there and 3.) preserving their monopoly as the only transatlantic A380 service.

There were a bunch of A380 reports, articles and videos in the New York media when SQ started flying there and you can't imagine how many people have asked me since ''how do I get to fly on that plane?''.

It is my understanding that SFO got the A380 from the NRT route due tot he Earthquake/Tsunami in Japan. SFO was A380 ready. Now, LAX is coming online and I believe NRT is or will be going back to an A380.

SFO is actually keeping the same or near capcity this summer with daily 744 and 77W service.
