I have no idea - maybe if you searched the forty or fifty threads started in the last 30 days on this topic you could find the answer  sarcastic

That's a good question  Yeah sure Big grin

They need to solve their major problems first, don't rush into steps you're not sure how safe it's.Now it appears that this project has left no room for errors really.

Watch what you are doing AIRBUS, people are losing faith in you ..

Wrong, there have been *many* threads on the A380 schedule over the past 30 days, because THE WHOLE DAMN SCHEDULE changed *completely* at the start of this month. Many many threads on the subject.

No one really has any idea, but the latest promise from Airbus is first delivery to SQ in October 2007. IF (very big IF) that happens, then we can expect SQ to start flying daily SIN-SYD service about a month later.

Now, now.. he would actually have to read some of these 30+ threads to get the answer and not be spoon fed....and yes. the answer is there. Someone listed the airlines that ordered the A380 with the first delivery dates, all the delayed dates and now the current dates.
