That is great news.

I think that the inaugural flight will be to NRT.

What ac's are they going to replace on there future routes? They will get more A380's till August or the Narita Flight will change to the LAX?

This is just their first routes they will operate. With 6 on order, 2-3 more routes should be announced when the time comes.

Looks like they are keeping them close to home for the first couple of months -- probably wise to work out the bugs and let the flight crews get familiar.

Just like LH BA [and probably others] before them to get their staff familiarised with the aircraft type - and to make sure the wings don't crack and fall off.

In addition to keeping them close to home to sort things out I think the routes / schedule is pretty good. Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok are very popular destinations for Koreans and Thais love visiting Korea as well. IMO they have the right kind of market to break in these A380s and for even keeping them on shorter flights if needed or if the longer flights later on don't work out as well.

Look at the planned schedule we can just simply say that NRT, KIX and BKK are temporary training routes before aircraft is flying longhaul to LAX.

First 2 OZ A380 will then fly LAX daily and the mini HKG sector after their LAX run each day.

With 2 frames from late July 2014, they can LAX/HKG run would leave no spare time to fly other routes.

Hope they could do JFK/BKK combo when they get the 3rd and 4th frames.
Let's just blame it on yields.

Unfortunately I think Asiana needs to focus on training their pilots how to properly fly the plane more than they need to worry about structural problems....      

Will be interesting to see where they all end up. Do we know what the seating configuration(s) will be for them?

As a result, will Korea become the first country in the world to have two A380 operators?

Now you mention it, yes. They will beat the UAE to that title by a couple of months.

I don't believe SFO will get an OZ jumbo for quite some time. OZ has a single daily 77L and to upgauge to an A380 would have too much unused capacity. Plus UA, KE and SQ operate the SFO-ICN route so the traffic is dispersed between four carriers.

The tail looks stunning but the titles are just way too small.
