Apart from BA, HKG also gets a lot of 380 visitors - namely MH, TG, SQ, CZ and KE:

Hopefully in future they will deploy A380 at least in summer season on daily basis.
As a first airline, they will use this type on regular route to Prague. In summer season when they use B747 it used to be overbooked many times so let's see

All Have Placed An Economy Class Cabin At Their A380s Upper Deck

Singapore Airlines A380 plane in emergency landing

An Airbus A380 plane operated by Singapore Airlines was forced to make an emergency landing in Azerbaijan due to loss of cabin pressure.
The plane was flying from London to Singapore and had 467 passengers and 27 crew members on board.
The airline said that oxygen masks were deployed and the aircraft landed "uneventfully" at the Baku airport.
It said that none of the passengers or crew was injured and that it was investigating what caused the problem.
Nathan Phelps, an electrical supervisor from south Wales who was on the flight, told the BBC the plane was cruising at around 38,000 feet when it suddenly began to drop.
"I literally thought we were all going to die. There was no warning, the plane just went into a deep descent, the masks dropped and you automatically thought we were going to crash. There was no other rational thought really. You couldn't really look at it optimistically because you had never experienced anything like that before."
Singapore Airlines said a replacement airplane to take the stranded passengers on to Singapore had now departed and was due to arrive in Baku on 7 January.

The aircraft involved was 9V-SKE.

9V-SKD is currently en-route to Baku to pick up the stranded passengers as SIA8850.

Looks like the problem that caused a SIA A380 to lose pressure was a faulty door. Let's hope this doesn't turn into a major problem with every airframe. I'm sure the higher pressure in the aircraft would be the cause of this.
