Rumour Control: New A380 Tour?

Fri Dec 15, 2006 12:53 am

The last few days there has been some intense speculation about a new upcoming A380 tour. The whole fuss started when a TV station broadcasted a news flash about the A380 visiting Athens coming from Prague next Sunday (Dec. 17th). Then there was allegedly some sort of Eurocontrol newsletter which also mentioned the A380 will visit ATH.
On the other hand, EADS Hellas knows nothing, there is no hint on the Airbus website and generally no publicity moves one would expect prior to an event such as this.

So... any thoughts on this?

Its likely the GP7200 powered A380 will do a tour in the next year or so, but where it will go is anyones guess at this time.

Thanks RichardPrice. I think I've seen hints about a new tour early in 2007, but rumour has it is due for the 17th. So I think you can all appreciate the urgency.

Maybe someone from Prague has heard simmilar rumours?
