Malaysia just announced that they would downgrade Amsterdam from a 747-400 to a 777-200. Emirates also recently stated in the Dutch press that they currently don't have any plans to use the a A380 to Amsterdam.

It doesn't look like Schiphol will see the A380 soon.


Btw,

Tokyo:
Lufthansa - Frankfurt (FRA) - Tokyo (NRT)
Korean - Seoul (ICN) - Tokyo (NRT)
Singapore Airlines - Singapore (SIN) - Tokyo (NRT) - Los Angeles (LAX)
Air France - Paris (CDG) - Tokyo (NRT) (currently 777, but will be A380 again from April)
Emirates - Dubai (DXB) - Tokyo (NRT) (from July)

Ah, then why no A380 to Kenya? lol

I assume BA will put their A380 on the route to Johannesburg too.

The A380 is a pretty sweet looking bird. The folks are Airbus have been celebrating for a few years now.

Well, it's the economic hub of Africa, with lots of business traffic together with loads of tourists coming for all the different things South Africa have to offer. Safari is just a part of it, together with all the other natural attractions and vibrant cosmopolitan cities in South Africa. Most other traffic to other tourist destinations and major cities in South Africa and Southern Africa as a whole funnels through JNB. And ofcourse together with Pretoria it has a catchment area of over 10million people within 100kms radius.

BA is very likely to bring the A380 next and that might be it for a while. Eventually in the next 10years maybe Emirates will likely upgauge more flights to A380 and I believe of all other carriers Qantas is likely to bring it at a much later stage.

Air France:
Paris (CDG) - Johannesburg (JNB), AF990, 23:20 - 10:55 h (+1)
Johannesburg (JNB) - Paris (CDG), AF995, 20:30 - 06:00 h (+1)

Lufthansa :
Frankfurt (FRA) - Johannesburg (JNB), LH572, 22:35 - 08:50 h (+1)
Johannesburg (JNB) - Frankfurt (FRA), LH573, 18:55 - 05:20 h (+1)
These are winter schedules (Northern Hemisphere Summer). At the moment all 3 arrive within 50mins: LH at 10:10, EK at 10:50 and AF at 11:00...so it can happen that they arrive together within a short space of time and things might get very busy with Swiss, BA, KQ, TK and several SA flights arrive around that time as well. They usually have the 3 A380s parked together.

BA will most definitely use A380 to Johannesburg.

Possible LHR - CDG route as well?? that would be shorter then Dubai - Jeddah!

Yesterday, Thai Airways’ first A380 (MSN087) completed final assembly and was moved to the flight-line.

[IMG]http://i42.************/vo7xg3.jpg[/IMG]

She took just eleven weeks to complete assembly, the fastest time yet for an airline’s first A380 frame.

Once delivered, she will carry airline registration HS-TUA.

Waaah London<->Paris short flight on an A380???

Hehe........I would've thought that the Channel Tunnel would've reduced the number of airline flights between UK and France (or at least the LHR<->CDG flighs)

haha but then again, someone told me that there are people who travel between Singapore and Malaysia using Singapore Airlines or Malaysia Airlines.......as far as business class. Heck, they even finish a bottle of champagne in less than an hour. (average flight time for SIN<->KUL is 30 minutes to 1 hour)

Money to burn indeed.

Emirates’ twenty-ninth A380 (MSN110) has been confirmed as the new frame being carried on Convoy #02/2012.

Only the wings and tailplane are being carried in the convoy, with the remaining components scheduled to arrive in February.

Once delivered in Q4 2012, she will carry registration A6-EEC.

SIA inspects A380s after discovering cracks inside wings
By Venus Hew | Posted: 20 January 2012 2046 hrs

SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines Ltd (SIA) has begun inspecting its Airbus A380 fleet of superjumbos, after fresh cracks were found on structural components inside the aircraft wings.

This is the second discovery of cracks in the wing parts of SIA's A380 jets in a month.

On January 6, SIA said repairs were made to cracks found in the wing ribs of two A380 aircraft.

In Friday's emailed statement, SIA said: "Checks will begin this morning on one aircraft."

The world's second-biggest carrier by market value said it is liaising closely with Airbus and will be carrying out precautionary inspections as required.

SIA, also the world's first carrier to fly the A380 in 2007, said the cracks pose no threat to safety.

"As Airbus has emphasised, the cracks do not affect the safe operation of the aircraft," SIA said.

It said it will keep the relevant regulatory authorities fully informed about its investigations.

"The safety of our customers and crew is our number one priority, and we will ensure that we take whatever action is needed for the continued safe operation of our A380 fleet," SIA's statement said.

The Wall Street Journal reports that European air-safety regulators are set to mandate enhanced inspections, in view of the new cracks found on the A380 aircraft.

Currently, SIA operates 14 Airbus A380s and has five more on order.

Australia's Qantas Airways, which has also detected small cracks in wing components of A380 aircraft, currently operates 11 of the superjumbos, from an order for 20.

It works quite well, BA have 20 flights day to CDG I think - (don't quote me!!)

Emirates are making money going to Jeddah, high volume flights are revenue generators, Especially when you can sell out business class on such a short flight!
