Are Any QF A380 In The Air Today Able To Be Track

Tue Oct 25, 2011 4:54 pm

I was looking up tail numbers on Flight Tracker, and I looked up QF A380s. First, I looked up VH-OQE, and they could not track it, so I looked up other QF A380s, and they could not be tracked. Do QF have an anti tracking device on their A380s fleet.

Generally they won't show up under registration, just under the flight number they are operating at the time.

Pardon my ignorance...but I hadn't heard that QF's A380s were in service yet??

EDIT: WOW, I'm an idiot, I somehow read QF as QR.

Oooo that will be good new EK413. Maybe we will see them in BNE soon   to LAX. i was reading on Wikipedia that BNE is in the top 20 of the most passengers carried lists for LAX. I was quite surprised to see that.

Wow that's earlier than expected. We were hearing Feb 2012 a few months ago, so hopefully December is the go! She is spending most of her time in the rented SQ hangar -- they must be charging QF (or at least their insurance company/RR/whoever is paying) a massive amount of money for that, so it makes sense for them to try to get her out ASAP!

But BNE-LAX is still not daily! That's what really surprises me considering it seems to be quite a strong route. Would love to see the A380 on this route though...
