No - I see that configuration for parked planes at airport terminals as well.

Asiana orders six A380s
By Ghim-Lay Yeo Jan
January 6, 2011
Air Transport Intelligence news

South Korea's Asiana Airlines has placed an order for six Airbus A380s, and plans to take delivery of them from 2014.

The Star Alliance carrier will operate the superjumbo jet on routes to Europe and the USA, says Airbus. It has yet to select engines for the A380s.

"With the A380, Asiana will be able to take its award-winning service to a new level, offering the very highest standards of comfort in the sky," says Asiana's president and CEO Yoon Young-Doo.

"At the same time, the significantly reduced operating costs and fuel efficiencies afforded by the aircraft will enable us to enhance our productivity and reduce our carbon footprint. This is in line with our policy to operate one of the most modern and environmentally-friendly fleets in the world."

The airline did not give details of how its A380s will be configured but Airbus says Asiana's A380s will have a "premium layout".

"The order is a further endorsement of the A380 as the most efficient tool to meet demand on the world's most heavily travelled routes, especially out of the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region," says Airbus chief operating officer John Leahy.

Asiana's order for the superjumbo jet is the first announced since a Qantas Airways A380 was involved in an uncontained engine failure during a Singapore-Sydney flight on 4 November.

Besides the A380, Asiana already has 30 A350s and two Boeing 777-200ERs on order, according to Flightglobal's ACAS database.

Including today's order, Airbus has 240 firm orders for the A380 from 18 customers.

NICE!!!

Airbus has been grappling with the aftermath of a serious incident last year, when Qantas Airways Ltd. (QAN.AU) had to ground its A380 flights after one aircraft made an emergency landing due to a faulty engine. Rolls-Royce Group PLC. (RR.LN) was the maker of the engine on that flight and Airbus has now offered to let Asiana choose the maker of its engine.

Asiana has become the second airline in South Korea, after bigger rival Korean Air Lines Co. (003490.SE), to add the jumbo jets to its fleet. South Korea's No. 2 airline company by sales said in a statement the first A380 should enter service with the airline in 2014 on routes to the U.S. and Europe.

"We expect the free trade agreement with the U.S. and South Korea's inclusion in the U.S. visa waiver program will help boost travel across the Pacific Ocean," Asiana President and Chief Executive Yoon Young-doo said in a statement. "An average of 5% growth is expected annually on the long-haul routes out of the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region."

The six planes will be delivered between April 1, 2014 and Dec. 31 2017, the airline said.

Airbus said in a separate statement Thursday: "The carrier (Asiana) will make an engine selection for its A380 fleet in the near future."

An Asiana official said the airline has several engine options to choose from, without elaborating on the potential options or the timeframe by which it expects to make the choice.

With the introduction of A380s, Asiana said it expects to significantly cut operating and fuel costs, helping it improve its productivity and reduce its carbon footprint.

Korean Air has 10 A380-800 planes on order, with five of them to be delivered this year, starting from May, and the remaining five between 2012 and 2014, the airline has said earlier.

For its 10 A380s, Korean Air said it had ordered GP7200 engines, the product of Engine Alliance, a joint venture between General Electric Co. (GE) and Pratt & Whitney. Korean Air didn't provide the contract value.
Fantastic news and the analysts say this plane makes no economic sense ,yet the orders keep comming in.Personally I love this plane but still haven't been on one.Dam..

Rolls-Royce Says 60% Of A380 Delivered In 2011 To Run Trent
11 January 2011

SYDNEY (Dow Jones)--U.K. engine maker Rolls-Royce Group Plc (RR.LN) said Tuesday it expects 60% of A380 jetliners delivered this year will operate its Trent 900 engines after Qantas Airways Ltd. (QAN.AU) announced plans to restore flights of the superjumbo to Los Angeles that were previously grounded following an engine blowout incident.

"Delivery of new Rolls-Royce powered A380s is continuing," the company said in a statement.

Earlier, Qantas said it plans to restart flights from Australia to Los Angeles on Jan. 16. The explosive failure of the A380 engine after Flight QF32 left Singapore on Nov. 4 grounded the airline's fleet of A380s and put Rolls-Royce engines under close scrutiny, as airlines operating the plane ran extensive safety tests.

Korean opts for low-density A380
11 January 2011
Flight International

Carrier's superjumbos will have just 407 seats and an all-business upper deck that promises sense of 'exclusivity'

Korean Air is to configure its Airbus A380 superjumbos with just 407 seats, the lowest-density layout for the type of any carrier so far.

The airline has disclosed details of its seating arrangement for the twin-deck aircraft, which will include an all-business upper deck.

Korean Air says this deck will have 94 lie-flat sleeper seats, with 74in (188cm) pitch.

This will give business passengers a sense of "exclusivity", says passenger business division chief Walter Cho.

Travellers on the upper deck will be able to feel "like they're travelling in their own private jet", he adds.

On the lower deck there will be 12 first-class and 301 economy-class seats. It will retain the three-class layout, rather than introduce a premium-economy cabin on the type.

Korean Air is to put the aircraft into service in May 2011, initially on short-haul routes to Japan and eastern Asia.

These initial routes will be followed by longer A380 services to the USA and Europe in August. It has 10 of the type on order, and five will arrive by the end of 2012.

Cho says the aircraft's layout will have a level of comfort that will "provide us with a competitive edge".

Korean Air's Boeing 747s are fitted with 333-384 seats while the airline's Boeing 777-300s are listed by the carrier as having 291-342.

Before the revelation of its seating layout for the A380, Australia's Qantas had offered the lowest-density configuration at 450 seats, including a premium-economy cabin of 32 seats.

Four other carriers operate the A380, with both Emirates and Air France using differing seating layouts depending on the route. Air France's layout of 538 seats is the highest density in operation.

Indian Ocean-based carrier Air Austral, however, is plans to acquire the type with an all-economy seat plan for 840 passengers.

Qantas to resume A380 services to Los Angeles from Jan. 16
11 January 2011

SYDNEY, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Qantas Airways will resume Airbus A380 flights between Australia and Los Angeles from Jan. 16, the airline said on Tuesday.

Qantas said in a statement the decision followed extensive consultation with engine maker Rolls-Royce , aircraft manufacturer Airbus and the Australia's Civil Aviation Authority.

Qantas was forced to initially ground its fleet of A380 aircraft after an engine in one of the aircraft disintegrated mid-flight in November.

It has since resumed some A380 flights but was not flying the aircraft on the route to and from Los Angeles, which had required the use of maximum engine thrust on take off.

EU watchdog defends Rolls engine certification
11 January 2011

PARIS, Jan 11 (Reuters) - Europe's top aviation safety inspector defended the methods used to certify the type of engine which blew up on a Qantas A380 superjumbo in November, saying it was impossible to predict every emergency.

A Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engine disintegrated in mid-flight on an Airbus A380 shortly after take-off on Nov. 1, forcing Australia's Qantas to ground its fleet.

Patrick Goudou director general of the European Aviation Safety Agency, which provides airworthiness certificates for aircraft and engines for 31 nations, said the methods used to certify the airliner's Rolls-Royce engines were sound.

But the Cologne-based agency would apply any lessons to be drawn from the accident.

"I don't think the certification process is to blame. Everything is audited and we use similar processes to the (U.S.) Federal Aviation Administration," Goudou told reporters.

"You can't predict everything. The working life of a material sometimes allows you to discover a problem. This is not particular to aviation or to Rolls-Royce," he added.

"If we find anything particular that can be improved, then of course we will do it."

Goudou was speaking at an industry press lunch in Paris.

Qantas said earlier it would resume Airbus A380 flights between Australia and Los Angeles from Jan. 16.

The airline, which suspended A380 flights after the engine failure, has since resumed some flights but not those on the route from Los Angeles which require a higher take-off thrust.
