MSN140 (Emirates #44) has been spotted last Saturday on a barge near Bordeaux, hence will become the new MSN carried on Convoy 2013/11 starting Monday (18 March).

Thai Airways to Add London A380 Route When Next Jets Arrive
By Chris Jasper on March 19, 2013
BloombergBusinessweek

Thai Airways International Pcl said it plans to operate the Airbus SAS A380 superjumbo to London’s Heathrow airport following delivery of its fifth and sixth aircraft later this year.

Thai can’t be more specific about when the A380 will serve Europe’s busiest air hub because delivery dates from Airbus aren’t certain, U.K. and Ireland General Manager Khun Wit Kitchathorn said in an interview yesterday in London.

The A380s will substitute for one of two services provided by Boeing Co. (BA) 747-400s that will return to the London route this month after a year’s gap for refurbishment, he said. The 747’s cargo flexibility makes retention of one service desirable, with the jumbo regularly carrying outsize items such as Porsche and Ferrari sports cars that the Airbus would struggle to handle.

“Frequencies are the most important thing, and from that point of view I’d rather have three 747s serving London,” Kitchathorn said. “But the A380 is also a prestige aircraft so we’d welcome it of course.”

Thai’s next A380s are slated to arrive in October or November, Serena Kelly, its deputy sales manager, said in London at an event to publicize the 747 refurbishment, reiterating that the timings aren’t definite.

More Frequencies

Thai will reintroduce the Boeing jets to London from March 31, returning capacity on the route to almost 750 seats a day from 534 during a year of operations by Airbus A340-600s. Two planes are required to provide a single frequency because of the distance involved. A 747-A380 combination could seat 881 people.

London might even be able to support four daily frequencies if the aircraft deployed including smaller Boeing 777 planes, Kitchathorn said. A service to Manchester is another option.

Two daily flights to London split between an A380 and 747 would match Thai’s service to Frankfurt, the main focus for the carrier’s European transfer traffic via the network of Star Alliance partner Deutsche Lufthansa AG. (LHA) Thai’s first two A380s were deployed to provide the German service.

The Bangkok-based carrier will also operate a daily A380 service to Paris using its third and fourth A380s from the end of this month. The service is being cut from 10 frequencies a week because of the greater number of seats available on the double-decker superjumbo.

Thai’s Southeast Asian rivals Singapore Airlines Ltd. (SIA) and Malaysian Airline System Bhd. (MAS) already fly the A380 to London.

Very good news for LHR. T3, in particular, is going to be very busy with A380 movements.

DFW Airport shows off its new A380 fire training simulator
Star-Telegram

Large, dark, smoke clouds billowing up from the west side of Dallas/Fort Worth Airport on Wednesday might have looked like an airplane had crashed on the runway.

Instead, it was an Airbus 380 mock-up burning at the airport’s newly expanded Fire Training Research Center.

The airport recently spent $29 million to upgrade the facility, adding the A380 fire trainer and a state-of-the-art classroom to run aircraft accident simulations for firefighters. The project was partly funded by a $19.2 million grant from the Federal Aviation Administration.

“Our hope is that with these new facilities the rate of learning will increase,” said Jim Crites, executive vice president of operations at DFW Airport. “More lessons can be learned and more lives are saved over time.”

The A380 fire trainer is a double-decker mock-up that is configured with seats and cargo holds to provide accurate representations of what firefighters would face if a fire brokeout on a large wide-body aircraft.

At the center, the airport trains its own firefighters and provides training sessions for firefighters at airports across the country. Recently, a group of firefighters from Branson, Missouri, spent the day working on fire simulations at the center, Crites said.

The airport also announced on Wednesday a partnership with Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University where students will be able to take courses at the center. The facility first opened in 1995 and has trained more than 15,000 firefighters.

The first for BA is to be delivered in july. BA would want to keep it a bit secret until the rollout so it's been hiding in Hamburg.
I personnally don't think there will be a special livery.

That is one heck of hard landing. Appears the outer engine strikes the runway.

Mas crew on A380 flights using iPads
Bernama

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) cabin crew today began using iPads to enhance inflight services to customers travelling on the airline’s A380 flights.

The iPads are part of SITA's innovative digital cabin crew solution, CrewTablet, which will enable crew members to quickly and easily access passenger and operational data.

"The solution will help our crew by providing lots of information at their fingertips so they can be more responsive to our guests," said MAS Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Ahmad Jauhari Yahya, in a statement today.

MAS’ crew members will trial the new solution - which the airline has branded MHcrew - for six months.

MHCrew is much more efficient than traditional paper-based processes, enabling accurate, timely and superior service delivery to passengers.

"Use of tablets is exploding worldwide and at SITA, we recognise that these new mobile devices offer airlines and airports a new way of working," SITA's CEO, Francesco Violante said.

"CrewTablet allows airlines to harness the power of tablets quickly and securely."

SITA is a multinational information technology company specialising in providing Information Technology and telecommunication services to the air transport industry.

MAS’ inflight supervisors will use CrewTablet on iPads that are fully integrated with the airline’s operational systems and other business applications.

The crew will be able to access a host of information, including weather reports, seat layouts, frequent flyer programmes, flight connection information and safety manuals, with the touch or swipe of a screen.

Cabin crew processes are normally paper-based.

With CrewTablet, a larger reserve of up-to-date information is available to the crew to deliver outstanding customer care, helping better manage issues and improve service.

Cabin crew can be trained and up and running in less than one hour, so they can immediately work with more flexibility and efficiency.

CrewTablet will also enable MAS to conduct passenger surveys using iPads, rather than on paper.

Survey results and feedback can be derived daily instead of monthly, hence providing the opportunity to quickly enhance or change service delivery accordingly.

With the use of digital forms and reports, CrewTablet reduces operational costs and improves inflight preparations and onboard operations.

SITA noted that the service creates fuel savings by reducing the weight of traditional paper reports and manuals carried onboard.

Crews can also use aircraft downtime to access digital training and certification courses.

CrewTablet can be integrated with any airline reservation or departure control system.

It is part of SITA’s intelligent airline vision which incorporates integrated technology from passenger operations to aircraft operations and next generation communications and infrastructure to drive better performance and accelerate business growth.

MAS will use CrewTablet for its A380 services between Kuala Lumpur and the cities of London, Paris and Hong Kong.
