I mean they had really bad attitudes, basically snarl at you when you ask for anything. This is on Brisbane to Bangkok.

I had a female crew member spill red wine on my pants while she was selving me and she panicked & I had to calm her down... She wouldn't stop apologizing to me... Then again I was in J/C & she probably thought I'll put in a complaint... Which of course I wouldn't

well it also depends on the way one asks for it. Not saying you were rude or anything but service based industry is one of the worst out there. there is very little appreciation for good work but a little lapse can cost them their jobs. I have never had a bad experience with Thai though with regards to US Airways I can safely say that all the times I have flown with them I have gotten the most rude cabin crew ever. I was once handed over to some authorities too just because I was taking pictures from the plane which I had earlier taken permission for

...and BA will soon operate its A380 to where? Australia? Looks like it will compete with QF now since it serves LHR with the A380.

Aha... Indeed New York-JFK would be a great market for the BA A380 because it is the airline's premier route, with like 10 daily flights (with two heading to and from LCY with A318).

And SIN? SQ and QF will be competing now with BA on the A380.

Makes sense for HKG since it operates the route like 2x daily (versus CX's 4x daily).

PEK? It's going to be a bit interesting since BA operates that route like 5x a week.

I've never had a problem with any cabin crew before until the couple of dragon ladies on this particular flight. They were bad from the get go, basically snarled at everybody at the door as they boarded the aircraft. To be fair, the other flights with them were fine, maybe we just got unlucky & scored the 2 crankiest flight attendants working for TG on the same flight.

Anyways, back on topic.

The catwalk shot of Malaysia vs Thai in Toulouse

Malaysia Airlines

Thai Airways

I would go for Thai because it's livery is more 'clean' and no 'sharp edges' not as dull too. What do you think if MH had a colored tail like TG?

The winner is TG hands down... & as for MH having a colorful tail like TG they had one but decided to go for this dull colorscheme...

100% TG, classy livery with nice colors, one of the best A380 liveries I reckon.
MH is boring, too white, and I don't find these stripes particularly elegant.
I can't wait to see BA's first in full color.

Malaysian Airlines messed up their livery! The Thai livery is amazing, for me currently the best livery on a A380.

Here's my next question: will there be any A380 that will be painted in a special livery, for example, Skyteam on an Air France, China Southern, or Korean Air?

I have no idea about any US airline purchasing the A380. For now, the 747 operates with UA and DL; the rest have 767s, 777s, and A330s.
