SIa ordered the A380 and it was announced they would be the first. That was in September 2000. However four months later, Emirates woke up after dozing and not realised for four months, that SIA were going to be first. They were not impressed and went to Toulouse. How nice. Anyway they discussed. However, they obviously haven't done much.

Oh well. SIA fans rejoice.
Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.
