Just for clarification do you mean February 10th, 2006 or do you mean October 2nd, 2006?

If it is in like a week, what ever happened to the evacuation tests? I haven't been paying attention much so I don't know if they have been done.

Of course it is October 2nd , for the European certification.Do not know for the American certification.
This certification will allow Singapore Al to put the plane in service , probably before year end.
Exciting to come to the time when we will be able to see how this plane will perform in scheduled service , and to see how passengers will react with it.
If all goes well for it as predicted , expect more orders in 2007.
We are not far , from the time when airlines still waiting to see how it will perform , before to take any decision about purchasing it or not.
Of course i am thinking at airlines such as ANA , JAL , BAW or CX.
Expect this year , "only" 2 new customers.

It's very common in Europe to go Date-Month-Year... 02-10-2006, October 02 2006.

Geeezz..!! I'll be 41 that day. Yikes..!!

Common sense, for most of the world, would mean that 10/02/2006 would mean February 10th.

But it is indeed a great day for aviation! Congratulations Airbus.

Well, if you use the slashes then yes. But if you use periods instead of slashes, then it would be 02.10.2006 (at least in Germany), or October 2nd 2006.  Wink

Anyway, I can't wait for the date the A380 will finally be certified!

Ok, but common sense would also dictate that the A380 is more than a week away from certification, right?

The common sense part applies to knowing that the A380 is more than a week away from certification.

Erm, over here we've always thought most of the world wrote the day, month and then year (02/10/06). Makes more sense really.

What rubbish! Of course they can! SQ can fly it to the US once it has ERSA AND SIN CAA(?) certification. No non US airline needs FAA certification to fly an aircraft certificed by the country of manfacture AND the country of registration to the US. Its called the CHIcargo Convention of 1944!

Of course the A380 will more than likely get FAA certification the same day, if its delayed by the FAA only, its not preclude operation to the US.

Should this be in the aviation forum? or a another forum were common sense can be discussed.  Silly

They write it that way around in the USA! When you get PCs/PDAs etc to set up you usually have to set the date format to the one you're used to.

Sorry I only clicked on this link as I'm British and wondered what the heck the poster was talking about as it seemed too amazing to believe!

yes, you are right. I just noticed that gmail uses that date format. Thinks it's an illogical order though Big grin

IIRC that format comes from the way newspapers write it. If you look at most British Newspapers, they have the date in the American format too, (although newspapers were around in the UK before America - so I guess that you could say the Americans use the British format, like they do with our language too  Wink ) although the month is written in full :-

Monday February 6th 2006 rather than 02/06/06.

however the usual way of writing the date for most people outside of the USofA is to write it :-

Monday 6th February 2006 or 06/02/06 or 06.02.06 - but still in the dd/mm/yy format.

Anyway back on track, will be good to see the A380 finally enter airline service.

Common sense says someone posting from france would write the date 02/10/2006.

Quoting JohnKrist (Reply 18):
I have never seen a date format like mm/dd/yyyy.

Look, it simply comes from American English vs. most other languages.

Here, we say "I was born on January 12th" the vast majority of the time, where in most languages around the world, and even British English, the way it is said (or translated) commonly is "I was born on the 12th of January" or "I was born on 12 January."

If we were to write the date today as 6/2/2006 in the USA, it would be confusing because it would be written out of order compared to how we would say it.

It's kind of like the French/Spanish/Italians saying "the car blue" while English speakers say "the blue car."
