LAX is a high premium market. Why do you suggest that? First with a 60% LF should be profitable. During the summer, well to do Hollywood types will by the seats to Paris. The cabin won't usually be full, but I expect it to make money.

Quoting g500 (Reply 6): Singapore, Qantas, Korean, Air france
China Southern has to be the next A380 operator into LAX.
Why do you assume this, g500? CZ doesn't even offer daily service to LAX and their 77Es they fly are rarely full from what I understand. If anythring, I think this route would be downgauged to a 788. Currently, CZ plans on flying their A380s within Asia and mostly in China.

Quoting DTWLAX (Reply 14): At this time, I can only think of LAX and LHR
I'd probably add JFK and HKG to that list. I know that JFK is currently seeing 380's from SQ, EK, KE, AF and LH (I believe they just restarted this on LH400/1 for the summer). For HKG, I believe EK, CZ, KE, and SQ use it there (possibly QF too?). I'd imagine that HKG will see quite a few more down the line as well.
