Yes, and no passengers fly from Hamburg Finkenwerder airport.

Finkenwerder is Airbus´ own airport, whence new planes take off for delivery flights, and maybe some test flights.

I returned from my first flight with A380.
It was slightly nicer than other planes I've flown, the side compartment was nice to put away magazines and stuff to get extra knee room, every cm counts in economy class (Or Voyageur class in French ).

Here's a short clip with clips.

Correct!

Just to make it clear for everyone:

The final assembly line of the A380 is in Toulouse/France where all the A380 sections from the Airbus plants in Germany, UK, Spain and France are delivered.
After completition every A380 flies empty (without a cabin) and "green" (no paint job) to the Airbus plant in Hamburg.
There the cabin is installed and the airplanes get their paint job.
After that the A380s for European (like LH, AF, BA,...) and Middle East (Emirates) customers are delivered from Hamburg, the rest of the A380s fly back to Toulouse where there is a second delivery center for all other customers.

European teamwork at its best!

Qantas puts Hong Kong on A380 networkPosted: 10 November 2011 1218 hrs

HONG KONG: Troubled Australian carrier Qantas said Thursday it would add Hong Kong to its network of A380 routes from January with four flights a week to Sydney in its newest aircraft.

"Qantas will operate four return services per week between Hong Kong and Sydney from 15 January 2012," Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said in a statement.

"Our A380 fleet has continued to generate extremely positive feedback from our customers since its introduction, and we are pleased to now add another destination to our A380 network."

Qantas has launched a public relations blitz after the recent two-day grounding of its global fleet due to an industrial dispute with workers, which left some 70,000 travellers stranded in 22 cities around the world.

Canberra was forced to step in to prevent huge damage to the Australian economy and end all industrial action at the airline, but furious passengers have vowed never to fly Qantas again.

The firm's image took another blow Friday when an engine problem saw a Qantas A380 diverted to Dubai, a reminder of the engine explosion that temporarily grounded its entire superjumbo fleet a year earlier.

Joyce kicked off the public relations offensive Sunday with a A$20 million (US$21 million) offer of a free return flight within Australia or between it and New Zealand for every customer stranded by his decision to ground the airline.

Announcing the A380 service to Hong Kong, the airline said Hong Kong was a "key market" for Qantas.

Qantas would receive its 11th and 12th A380s later this year, providing capacity for four return services a week to Hong Kong.

It said A380 services between Melbourne and London via Singapore would increase from six flights a week to daily, and services between Melbourne and Los Angeles would increase from four flights a week to daily.

Emirates Sticking With Superjumbo Splurge After Profit Drops 76%

Singapore Airlines Ltd. (SIA), the second- largest carrier by market value, and Emirates, the world leader on international routes, reported tumbling earnings after fuel costs climbed and the economy hurt occupancy levels.
Net income at Emirates dropped 76 percent to 827 million dirhams ($225 million) in the six months ended Sept. 30 after a $1 billion surge in fuel costs without which earnings would have been “pushing 5 billion dirhams,” President Tim Clark said in an interview. Singapore Air’s second-quarter profit slumped 49 percent to S$194 million ($152 million), it said in a statement.

Industrywide earnings will fall by more than half this year and 40 percent in 2012 as a global slowdown hurts bookings, the International Air Transport Association predicts. Pressure on profit is being exacerbated by kerosene prices that averaged $125.78 a barrel in the second quarter in Singapore trading, versus $86.65 a year earlier, according to Bloomberg data.

“The underlying problem is this artificially, speculatively driven oil price which bears no resemblance to the true reality of where it should be,” Clark at Emirates said. “I don’t know where that money’s gone, but we made somebody rich.”
Advance bookings are showing “signs of weakness,” especially in Europe and the U.S., as economic uncertainty damps demand, Singapore Air said. Three-month load factors, a measure of occupancy, slid 1.9 percentage points to 77.5 percent as it lifted capacity 6.3 percent and traffic rose only 3.8 percent.

Arab Spring, Earthquake

Emirates added 8.2 percent more seating in the six months, faster than the 5.7 percent gain in traffic, pushing the load factor down to 79.3 percent from a record 81.2 percent a year earlier, it said in a statement.
In addition to fuel costs and a slowing economy, the “Arab Spring” political uprisings also hurt demand in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen, while Japanese traffic was subdued after the earthquake and tsunami earlier in the year, Clark said by phone.

Fluctuating exchange rates also clipped earnings, and the airline added 3,400 more staff. Cargo volumes were flat, and though sales rose 16 percent to 29.9 billion dirhams, much of the gain came in surcharges used to pass on some kerosene costs.

Emirates has succeeded in growing its business by adding aircraft and routes while maintaining healthy load factors and ticket prices, “all to have that removed from the bottom line because of fuel,” Clark said. “We were of the opinion that we could manage the business without being over exposed to over- hedging and getting involved in too many derivatives,” he added.

Volatile Pricing

While Singapore Air said today that forward prices for jet fuel “remain high and volatile,” carriers should count themselves fortunate to be avoiding losses in the current environment, aviation analyst John Strickland said.
“They’re still producing profits when many airlines are struggling, and that in itself is a positive thing,” said Strickland of London-based JLS Consulting Ltd.

The slump comes as Emirates builds the largest fleet of Airbus SAS A380s in a drive to establish Dubai as a long-haul travel hub and win passengers from Air France-KLM (AF) Group and Deutsche Lufthansa AG. (LHA) Clark said he’ll stick with the strategy.

Emirates has 90 superjumbos, with 17 in service at the end of October, and is targeting a total of 120. The overall fleet features 161 Airbus and Boeing jets, including 10 planes delivered this fiscal year, with around 190 on order worth in excess of $60 billion, 13 of which are due by March 31.

The carrier has commenced routes to Geneva, Copenhagen and St. Petersburg, Russia, since April and will add eight more in the next few months, flying to Baghdad from Nov. 13 and Rio De Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dallas, Seattle, Dublin and Lusaka in Zambia and Harare in Zimbabwe starting in early 2012.

“There will be good years and bad years, but we’ll continue our plan to grow,” Clark said. “Our cash remains positive, so we’re able to finance our aircraft. The real inhibitor is fuel. Everything else we seem to be managing.”
