At this point, it looks like EY
will be the first birds ready for delivery - MSN002, MSN004 and MSN007 are being used for flight-test and certification, I believe.
However, Airbus may be contractually bound to deliver the first birds to SQ
- MSN003, MSN005 and MSN006.
The talk of a "ceremonial delivery" may be the way to get around this. Fly MSN003, MSN005 or MSN006 to SIN
, snap some pics, then send her back to TLS
. That way, the first A380 has been "delivered" per contract and then then can send EY
