Air France Paris-New York A380 superjumbo flights in November
9 July 2009
Agence France Presse

Air France-KLM said Thursday it would start daily flights between Paris and New York from November with the new Airbus A380 superjumbo, the world's biggest passenger jet.

A Singapore Airlines flight last month became the first commercial A380 flight to arrive in Paris but Air France said in a statement it would be the first airline to fly the superjumbo on a route across the Atlantic.

The A380 superjumbo jet can carry up to 853 passengers, but Air France plans to configure its flights from Paris to New York JFK airport with 538 passengers: nine in premier class, 80 in business and 449 in economy.

Air France-KLM, which has ordered 12 A380s, said four of them will begin service late this year and in early 2010.

It seems that almost every airline that's taking the A380 has changed their livery for the A380 like Singapore Airlines, Qantas, AirFrance, Korean Air... Hope Malaysia Airlines will change theirs, or alter it slightly.

Wow, A380 looks superb in those shots!

I quite like the new "AIRFRANCE" typeface, but I think the livery is let down by the only slightly modified tail design.

Don't think Qantas "changed" their livery for the A380. I saw their new fonts last year before A380 debuted :

June 2008 :

In fact, not a single airline has so far changed its livery 'for the A380'. Singapore Airlines changed it with the introduction of the 777-300ER, Qantas did it, as you mentioned, well before the A380 introduction, Air France introduced its new livery on a 777 a few months ago, well before the A380 introduction, and Korean Air have already introduced their new colors (well, 'new' is stating it a bit strong, they just made the titles larger) while their first A380 is still quite a bit away.

Silly question perhaps, but will anny of them be wearing KLM colors?

Didn't I read somewhere that the changes that Qantas, Korean Air, Singapore Airlines and to some extent, AirFrance, did to their livery was so that it would look proportional to the aircraft?

Qantas did it for the A380 - it was announced in July 2007 that the logo would be tweaked because the kangaroo would be too small or not look correct on an A380. So it was modified in preparation for the introduction of the A380, and as a general update of the brand, which had not been altered since the early 1990s.

Of course the numerous delays to the A380 has made the date of announcement and date of delivery seem longer.

Qantas press release, July 07
http://www.qantas.com.au/regions/dyn...007/jul07/3621

Quote:
"This move also reflects the changing structure of our new aircraft - for example, the shape of our new kangaroo is a great fit for the tail of the A380 and other new generation aircraft," Mr Borghetti said.

"We will also be progressively rolling out the new branding across the airline in the lead up to the delivery of the first A380 in August 2008," he said.

If it was a size adjustment of logos, then it isn't a livery change is it? Qantas also changed its fonts as well. Is that unrelated or part of all this?

No, it was all related and done in preparation for the A380, as they believed the then existing kangaroo would look wrong on the A380.
