In 2013, second a380 to Paris and New-York (both the first of january).
And much more to be announced...
Actually, make that 3x daily from January next year for both destinations. however, I have doubts if the First Class suites will be occupied.

LH's A380 are not used as a substitute for 747. Instead, A380 is playing on the higher yield niche that 747 is not able to accommodate. While 747-8i is designated to be a substituted for 747.

Cant see any routes they'd fill it on.

It can do the job. I think though that the A380 can complement with the B747 on the busiest routes.

True... but it's still a massive plane. It looks a bit better than the AN-124 multi-engined monster.

the AN-124 can load more weight, the Beluga more air. The Beluga has the largest volume

Maybe you meant An-225 "Mriya"? "Multi-engined monster" better suits for this plane.

All in all, it's not reasonable to compare Beluga with other cargo (only) planes. Beluga should be compared with Dreamlifter.

Oh yeah... I did not think of that plane too... that massive plane. I remember seeing that when I left Manila for the United States, and it was really massive. And the Dreamlifter -- is that the one by Boeing?

I used to see and hear "Mriya" once in a month

You are right - Dreamlifter is made by Boeing. Carries out the same job as Beluga.

Ah. And how loud are the AN-225's engines when taking off and landing?
