Update Of A380 Due At LHR.

Sat Mar 11, 2006 11:48 pm

I have been told now that the A380 will be coming on the sunday 30th April not the 29th as originally thought.

I have also heard that some airlines, (I presume SQ at least) have been pressuring Airbus to get the 380 over to LHR for trials, by this date or they would request some kind of compensation.

I am very sure of the date change but can anyone confirm if Airbus have had any pressure from airlines, and/or if they would be entitled to some form, of compensation.
When in doubt give it a clout

My birthday! Thats a nice gift!
I can understand that airlines would want the A380 to start trials at LHR as soon as possible but only if they are going fly it there in December or early 2007 and the only airline that would do that is SQ.
