What Is Up With Airbus Cancelling A380 Flights?

Tue May 02, 2006 3:09 am

GVA and LHR were up to have the A380 come and finally Airbus has pulled out?

Why is it they cancel like that! Its a shame!

regards

Maybe something came up and Airbus had to reschedule perhaps? And no, its not a shame. These kinds of things happen in this industry. Expect the unexpected for starters......

LHR isn't cancelled at all, but officially confirmed. See this link:

Exceptions confirm the rule.

over hyped Headlines make me yawn.
The A380 project is not canceled, it will fly, passengers will travel, it will visit Heathrow.
So far in 2008 45 flights and Gold already. JFK, IAD, LGA, SIN, HKG, NRT, AKL, PPT, LAX still to book ! Home Airport LCY

While it will be an event when the A380 first visits LHR, you'll be seeing plenty of them there, soon enough.

Perhaps the special separation rules for the A380
are finally taking their toll? Afterall, nobody wants
to shut down Heatrow for an A380.
