The first operator will be SQ. The first revenue flight is expected to be in early 2007.

Really?! SQ is expected to receive the first A380 in November 2006.
Will they wait 2 months until the first delivery flight?!
|Quoting Zvezda (Reply 4):|
Earliest possible delivery is said to be the last week of November. There is still a chance that first revenue service might be late December, but I would bet against it. Remember, proving for the WhaleJet will be more complicated than it was for the B777 because of the special taxi procedures required by its size.
