SFO is DEFINITELY
one of the first airports to get A380-800 service. When the current International Terminal (Concourses A and G) at SFO
were built in the late 1990's one of the major considerations was the spacing for 80 x 80 meter spacing parking gates for what was then called the Airbus A3XX
Given the fact that SQ
's most profitable route is the sector between HKG
Flight 001/002 (even more so than the SIN
route!), expect SQ
to put the A388 on the SQ
001/002 route as soon as they get enough A388's to fly the route with the new plane five times per week.
I also expect down the road to see VS
fly the A388 on the LHR
route and LH
to fly the A388 on the FRA
route by the middle of 2007.
