ROUTE CHANGE FOR TRAVEL FROM 31 MARCH 2013
Sydney–Singapore–London and Melbourne–Singapore–London: Flights will operate via Dubai instead of Singapore, en route to London. Direct services to Singapore will remain but timings will improve.
Sydney–Singapore: Four new dedicated Singapore services per week, timed to better connect to onward flights within Asia.
Melbourne–Singapore: Dedicated Singapore service, seven times a week, timed to connect better to onward flights within Asia.
Singapore–London: Qantas services on this sector will cease. Qantas will codeshare on British Airways flights to provide connections via Singapore for travellers on Qantas services from Australia.

dumb questions for A380 fans

does airbus plane on making another version of the 380? like an extended version or something like that?

Like the 747 has multiple different versions of planes.

Airbus designed the A380-800 with a larger version of the plane in mind. The A380-900 was to be 6 to 7 meters longer then the -800 and would fit 100 to 150 more passengers depending on the configuration.

Airbus was planning to go ahead with this larger version up to 2010 when they postponed the plans until the production of the A380-800 would have stabilized. More recently Airbus has stated that the stretch will most likely happen, but only in the long term. They said that they are certain that it will fly in 2030.

But that doesn't mean that Airbus is not doing anything right now. Airbus is currently the working on improving the economy of the A380-800, the most obvious example of this is making 11 abreast seating in economy possible on the main deck. But this will be seen as a small improvement to the A380-800 and probably won't be seen as a completely new version.

Emirates is also rumored to be pushing Airbus to do a re-engined version of the A380 with new engines based on the GEnx and RR Trent XWB engines for the 787 and A350. But for now Airbus has not made the decision to launch this A380-800 neo.

.
I think they also have a cargo version for it, don't they? A380-F.

I think 11 abreast is crazy. It would eliminate the spacious feeling of A380.

They had a cargo version but they canceled it.

I think Rolls-Royce may be studying the idea of a new engine for the A380 and A350XWB based on their Advance research program. Such an engine could eventually cut fuel burn compared to the Trent 900 series by 15% or more and could make it possible for the A380-800R, an A380-800 model that could potentially fly between London and Sydney non-stop almost year-round or carry more passengers/cargo for the same range as the current A380-800.

I think new engines make a lot of sense. How much work would have to be put into that?

If and when Airbus does go ahead with the A380-900, I hope they include larger windows next time, at least as big as those on the Boeing 747-8.

That's my only quibble with the structure of the plane.
