Yep, I saw that one in the database myself today  Smile Let's bump up the hit count on that one and make it one of the tops of the next 24 hours Big grin

I can't wait to hopefully see one on my upcoming layover in SIN on 3/20/08...too bad I can't ride one  Sad

They recently finished the wiring only on December 8th, so I'm sure there is quite a bit of testing they want to do before delivery. I think Airbus is taking this delay to make sure that each frame they deliver is "perfect" and has no bugs, to help make sure the image of the A380 in service is stellar. I think that's a good plan myself.

I concur. Also, according to the quite excellent (and frequently updated) A380 production update on Flightblogger, the delivery target for MSN005 remains Jan. 2008:
