Emirates A380 To Be Delivered In April/Fly In July

Wed Apr 26, 2006 7:00 pm

Emirates will take delivery of its first A380 superjumbo in mid-April 2007, chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum told AME Info. Officials said the A380 would enter actual service in July after extensive testing. Singapore Airlines is set to fly the A380 before Emirates, although this will depend on which airlines' engine manufacturer completes development first.

Quoting Singapore_Air (Thread starter):
Officials said the A380 would enter actual service in July after extensive testing.

Perhaps he means training, route proving flights, etc., instead of ""testing?"

A year from now. OK, though the GP7200 hasn't yet flown on the A380.
