First A380 Passenger Flights?

Mon Nov 21, 2005 2:45 am

What's up

So I'm really excited about the A380 (as all y'all are as well!), and was wondering when the first passenger flights are going to take place. What airlines / routes? It'd be so sweet to fly this giant!

Thanks

First A380 Passenger Flights?

I believe the first passenger operations are late 2006 and will be flown by SQ although I don't believe there are any firm dates yet!

Although if they are i'm sure someone will correct me!

The airliners are expected to fly the kangaroo route LHR-SIN-SYD

Yes. The first Pax flight will be with SQ between SIN and LHR. Earlier this year you already could book tickets for the flight. But this was before Airbus delayed deliveries.
