"I'm no Boeing fan really (give me a VC10 anyday) but that A380 really is one ugly son-of-a-b."

This is a joke, right ?

A380 Deliveries
 
Hey, can some one tell me who is the first to get the A380 and the month of the delivery? I know Virgin have placed orders, when are they due to be launched or delivered? Cheers...

A380 Deliveries
 
The first A380 is currently scheduled for delivery to Singapore Airlines in November this year and is planned to enter service in December.

Virgin Atlantic have 6 on order with the first delivery in 2008 but there have been strong rumours that the order may be reduced or part order further delayed.

As it is an Airbus and its a double decker then the nickname Routemaster fits. As in " as aerodynamic as a"

A 380 Rumour
 
This is probably in the wrong place, but there is a rumour doing the rounds that the A380 ( nickname still open to debate, but routemaster looks good to me) is due into MAN for some sort of trials next Saturday (10th June)

Can anyone give credence to this, I normally avoid Saturday overtime, but I might make an exception if that thing is coming.

This is the same day as Chester open day and the A380 for that I beieve been cancelled due workload

Hi People,
I know there are vavious stories about the A380's attendance at Farnborough, but I would very much like to see the big beast arrive... any ideas where I can find out when this is due?
I have only ever found out when I have seen the pics in the local paper.

Cheers

the Breguet 763.

Arrival 380 At FAB
 
HI

Best bet is keep checking on this site the hope is somone will post
the CORRECT information about this . there has been so many rumours
around about Visits to FAB , MAN and thats what they were just Rumours
with a very busy Test Schedule any further trips will very Doubtfull.
If You miss its arrival not to worry it should be here all week .
but if i am Avail when it does arrive on approach i will post on here as
well as my Groups the information as early as i can .thats a promise
One bit of useless information JANES on the SBAC show pages have
printed the 2004 show list thatll confuse a few .

airbus name
 
hi

Forgot to add my comment on the Name : why do we need one at all ?
all the Airbus types seem to have kept there type Names A340 319 320
does anyone use a Name ? ATP is all that ever got called 707 never
heard it called anything Else , still they named the Eurofighter "TYPHOON"
I was already calling it EUROCRAPPER . the Real TYPHOON was a great
Aircraft this thing is not Worthy so Far to use it untill it proves itself but
i expect and hope RAF Members on here will jump in and give us a:ok:
for it cos its mine and Your Tax paying for it

Par for the course...
 
>>...sees the least amount of obstacles on its way...>>

It would certainly appear that the obstacles the A380 has encountered have been quite a few...

Overweight
Late
Over budget?
Cancelled orders.

A white elephant if there even was one...
Brabazon, anyone?:E

First 3 yes; but no orders cancelled as yet (in the public domain at least).

surely not 5th Jul 2006 15:51

Don't crow too soon 411A, the 787 is only a paper aeroplane currently. Plenty of time for it to have problems.

The A380-900 is the one a lot of people reckon will be the real winner, but I guess that Airbus want to regain the confidence of the airlines before launching that version

Dan Air 87 8th Jul 2006 11:09

Any news about Malaysian's order for the A380? I read a few days ago it was in danger due to their financial situation. Now it the time for BA to show their mettle and order the <'heads' may have rolled but this is family web site> A380 (if MAS drop out) abnd inject some life into the programme.

Andy_S 10th Jul 2006 09:37

I'm sorry, but why on earth should BA order the A380 just to dig Airbus out of a hole? Their responsibility is towards their shareholders, not their suppliers.

surely not 10th Jul 2006 16:58

Maybe Dan-Air 87 has forgotten they are not a nationalised airline anymore :} :}

Whilst it would be nice to see an order for the A380 from BA I'm not sure it fits with their current planning which seems to be for more 777 sized aircraft.

surely not 18th Jul 2006 11:46

So all those Boeing supporters who were ridiculing the need for another large aircraft, and suggesting that Airbus had got it sooooo wrong, how do you explain the news that Boeing is looking to stretch the 747-800 to just under 500 seat capacity??

Maybe your blind faith in the anti Airbus publicity of Boeing is coming back to haunt you!!
