KE A380 To ATL - Dec. 8

Sat Dec 01, 2012 2:52 am

I've heard through various sources around the airport that KE will be bringing an A380 to ATL on Saturday, December 8th (ETA 9:00am) for a test of ground handling. Can't find further information on it (duration of stay in particular) - anyone have any dirt on it?

I thought they had scrapped brining the A380 into ATL for a while? I still love seeing the B744's way better looking airplane. I'm guessing it'll park on E1 & E3 is that right?

We got info that a A380 was coming in on 12/8 around noon and leaving at 9am on 12/9 a few weeks ago. Was suppose to be here for "gate test fit". Did not get info on who's A380 it was going to be. But yesterday we got word that this was going to be postponed until early January.
