380 At JFK, Think It Will Still Happen?

Sat Mar 17, 2007 11:10 pm

I am having my doubts as to the A380 landing at JFK on time. Due to the 8-10" of snow that has now covered NYC and cancelled many flights, I would think that the A380 arrival would be pushed back to a later date because, A, Airbus probably wants to have the perfect runway conditions so no sliding around if something were to happen, and B, All the flights that are now trying to get out are going to make it hard for this. OR is this landing nothing special and they will just put him on the approach path along with everyone else with just a little bit more spacing in trail.

There's still a day and a half for JFK to get itself back in order before the 380 arrives. Should be good to go by that time.

If they can't deal with it now and it's a hassle... it won't change when it goes into service.

They just had a ground damage on an air france 744 maybe about 25 min ago. but other wise the ramp at T1 looks fine and ready for the grand arrival. The only thing is the catch up game that they are playing with the flights over there.
The only valid opinions are those based in facts

On this note, any word on what the flight number of the flight on Monday will be?

Quoting FlyDeltaJets (Reply 4):

It got pretty bad over there today, a lot of arrivals were stuck on the taxiways (much to the dismay of ground control). Hopefully things get sorted out by Monday.
