Yesterday in Munich:
Lufthansa´s second A380 "München" brings back the FC Bayern München football team from London where they have won the 2013 Champions League title.

Probbly not. They are a professional sports team so Lufthansa probably treated them very nice.

I think the 747, as a passenger aircraft, is on its way out. This A380 plane has outsold the newest version of the 747, the -800 series, as a passenger aircraft. Airlines are buying 777s at a frenetic rate, and with the new version of the 777, the -900 series, pending, that is already getting plenty of requests, and it hasn't even been officially concieved of yet. The 747 will continue on as a cargo plane.

I would say that the age of jumbojet as staple aircraft for long haul route is over. Now airline can travel over long distance with cheaper operational cost with the likes of Boeing 777 or 787.

Meeting of two flagships: A380 and the new Mercedes-Benz S-class







Quote:
Exclusive presentation at Airbus in Hamburg-Finkenwerder.
Meeting of two flagships:
The Airbus A380 as the backdrop for the world premiere of the new S-Class


Stuttgart/Hamburg

May 16, 2013

Stuttgart/Hamburg. Yesterday evening, Mercedes-Benz presented the S-Class in a special event. At the Airbus A380 delivery centre in Hamburg-Finkenwerder, the new Mercedes-Benz flagship met up with the world's largest and most advanced passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380. As "Germany's most valuable package", the star of the event had previously been flown from Stuttgart to Hamburg in an Airbus A300-600 freighter operated by DHL – just in time to celebrate the world premiere with around 750 international guests from politics, industry and the media.



On an LED video screen measuring some 200 square metres, the guests were able to witness the new S-Class being unloaded and driven across the runway to the launch pavilion equipped with multimedia facilities – flanked on each side by current Mercedes models. 15 cameras recorded the event and broadcast the images around the world via an outside broadcast truck. 96 loudspeakers and 20 kW of sound output ensured that every word was heard.

The choice of the A380 Delivery Center as the location for the world premiere was no accident. Like the A380, the new S-Class will set new standards in luxurious travel. "Rather than being about safety or aesthetics, power or efficiency, comfort or dynamism, our aspirations were 'the best or nothing' in every respect. No other car stands for the Mercedes-Benz brand promise more than the S-Class," said Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler AG and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Cars.

2000 square-metre pavilion for the launch celebration

As a logistical tour de force, Mercedes-Benz had a launch venue constructed where Airbus customers from Europe and the Middle East normally take delivery of their new A380, with a multimedia presentation stage, S-Class showroom, product display, VIP lounge and extensive backstage areas for technical facilities, logistics and catering. This included a kitchen for five German Michelin-star chefs, who opened a unique "ten-star restaurant" on the evening of the premiere to celebrate the S-Class.

Constructing the temporary building took around 14 days, employing up to 100 personnel from various trades each day. A total of 160 semitrailer trucks delivered the necessary materials: more than 500 tonnes of steel, 4000 square metres of wood, 400 spotlights, 96 loudspeakers and an LED video wall measuring 28 metres in width and seven metres in height.

The additional power supply with 3000 KVA of output required 25 kilometres of newly laid cables, 40 distributors and its own generators. Sound quality, for example during the live appearance of the international star Alicia Keys, was not only ensured by the precisely positioned loudspeakers, but also by 26 out*put signal channels and a mixing console with 168 input channels. 400 spot*lights with 130 electric motors in around 1000 metres of traversing rigs shed the best possible light on the S-Class.

The new S-Class: Luxurious travel at the highest level

The new Mercedes-Benz flagship model is the epitome of a modern luxury saloon. The S-Class is an exclusive first-class office along the lines of a business jet, as well as a haven of relaxation with the ENERGIZING massage function based on the hot-stone principle and individual interior fragrancing.

"Our completely newly developed S-Class establishes a never-before-seen dimension in luxury, comfort and efficiency in a saloon, and raises the standard of safety equipment in automobiles to a new level. More than ever, this makes it synonymous with luxury and innovation in automotive engineering," says Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, member of the Board of Management of Daimler AG, Group Research & Mercedes-Benz Cars Development.

It would be nice to see some orders for this giant at Paris Air show, the lack of demand is starting to be worrisome.


I don't think i've ever seen so many A380s on flighradar, 41 whalejets.

Notice the big blank of over South America and the small amount of A380s in North America compared to Asia and Europe.

Maybe not. China Southern also operates an A380 on its CAN-LAX flight. What time of day was that screenshot taken? That might give me a clue...

The air route and direction the 4 x A380's are heading indicate QF. Wouldn't CZ air route head over Russia airspace?

I understand the QF flights. What I'm referring to is that QF isn't just the sole carrier doing Transpacific journeys on an A380; CZ, KE, and SQ (I forgot) also do such trips to LAX from CAN, ICN, and NRT, respectively. Plus, it depends if the tailwinds are faster on the far northern route than the southerly route, that's why pilots check for a fastest way to get from point A to point B, considering the massive weight of the super jumbo.

Does somebody here know which A380 (MSN) will be the first plane which will get the modified wings (new materials to avoid the "wing cracks") on the production line?
