BA A380's being built yet?

Any news on whethere construction has started yet, I understand they were / are due for delivery in 2013, and these things I suspect take a while to put together.. Although granted it could be late 2013.

A380 production list - Planes

Looks like the first one for BA, G-XLEA, is production number 095.
