What Livery Will The A380 Be In @ LHR?

Tue May 16, 2006 5:40 pm

Hi all,

Just wondering what colours will the A380 display, when it arrives at London Heathrow on the 18th May?

Look forward to hearing your thoughts on this topic..

Kind Regards,

Nick

I've heard that it will be F-WWDD if that is any help.

I would expect them to add Virgin Atlantic Titles though, as VS will have the only LHR based A380s (for the time being anyway)

I another change of direction, bmi have decided to take over SQ's slots of the A380 as SQ have had enough of waiting for them to be delivered. BD will operate them in a 1 class layout as a replacement for the A321. As a result the A380 will appear in BD colourscheme.

Anyone know the callsign she'll be using on Thursday and it's confirmed ETA?

I believe it's doing a flypast at Chester and then at Filton before going to LHR.

As VS are not getting their planes for 3 more years - I reckon airbus house colours but I also predict nay-sayers and doom-mongers to predict that VS will cancel their orders if he bird isn't silver and red on Thursday!

Love it. And Sir Michael Bishop will use one of them as his personal Biz Jet with a bowling alley on the top floor?

He'll also have a dart board with a picture SRB on it!!! That's probably already up in his office anyway...

It's been rumoured that a fly-past has been requested at LPL too, as they will be handling the fly-past at Filton. Hope they don't lower the gear for that, wouldn't want the wheels nicked by a cheeky Scouser would we  Wink (with apologies to all Merseysiders)

But seriously, I reckon it'll be in the Airbus house colours seen above.
