Don't know if this' been posted before, did a search but couldn't find anything. Anyway, it's a really impressive video, imo.

Enjoy.

It's real since it was a test flight. Also, have you noticed how quiet this plane is in the inside? Impressive.

This flight took place during one of the route proving flights. The cabin interior is real and fully functional. This video clip was taken from the Airbus web site. Where all the other videos are available.

Thank you very much for posting. That was awesome! Can't wait for these birds to enter commercial service.

Hands up to China Southern as well!

Like the PLA general seen in the clip. Probably wondering how many para-troops he could stuff into one of them or how many tanks a F version would hold.

It's interesting to notice that Mr. LIU Shaoyong, apparently the president of CZ (or so it says) and apparently also a pilot, doesn't speak english and needs an interpreter... Or maybe he chose not to?

I'm with you for sure if (and when) the A380 comes to Los Angeles.

 Wow! Wow, I was impressed. And the passengers looked very relaxed in every class of service.

Indeed. Short and sweet, just the way I like it. I might have to fly CZ, their flight attendants aren't bad!  Wink

But I presume it's not the standard cabin for China Southern?

I agree! Just one thing though, I live in VA now. By the way, can terminal 5 take an A380, I believe it can take a 747 now?

I'm sure it is quiet and will be one of the quietest in the sky, but no video can demonstrate that because it would depend on miking, production levels, filters, etc.
