After arriving at LHR on AF1980, Air France crew were kind enough to let me up front to view the impressive flight deck.

AF380 at LHR? how and why?
4 years ago
As for why an AF A380 does such a short hop- it is taken in 2010 when AF only just had this giant bird... so as normal AF had its revenue service life started on short 'familiarisation' flights. Just as BA is doing as I speak perhaps or at least has done this year (2013) with their brand new A380's, sending them LHR-FRA. I remember LH A340's at AMS back in 1993, same story. March 1 that year marked the first ever arrival of an A340 in Amsterdam, brand new for LH (also launch customer).
