What are the shortest regular routes operate by an A380?

I mean some year-round and scheduled passenger commercial service...

If it's still running, probably Dubai-Jeddah.

http://a380flights.net/. Looks like credible enough site.

Jeddah to Dubai takes 2h. Can't find shorter now, but there were shorter flights in the past (London - Paris and Seoul - Beijing).

That is strange. I thought they only provided A380 service to Miami during the fall and winter.

QF A380 incident

The QF0094 had to turn back to LAX because of leaking water from the Upper deck galley.

Images are floating around showing a very flooded aisle & wet seats!

The Emirates A380 will fly twice daily to Mauritius,starting 1st December.

Quote:


DUBAI, U.A.E., 3rd July 2014: Emirates, a global connector of people and places, will serve Mauritius with a double daily A380 service from 1st December this year.

This second A380, which will operate as flight EK 703/704, replaces the existing Boeing 777 operation and increases Emirates' capacity on the route by 19%, further meeting the demand on the route and demonstrating the growth of Mauritius as a global destination. It allows an additional 165 passengers each day to travel to this beautiful island set in the middle of the Indian Ocean.



"Our daily A380 service into Mauritius has enjoyed exceptional popularity since its launch on 16th December 2013, with more than 150,000 passengers having flown our flagship aircraft to the paradise island during this time," said Orhan Abbas, Emirates Senior Vice-President, Commercial Operations, Latin America, Central and Southern Africa.

"The launch of a double daily A380 service to Mauritius will further strengthen our support for the country's tourism industry and we are certain that hoteliers and operators will welcome this initiative," he added.

Services between Dubai and Mauritius and vice versa is operated in codeshare with Emirates’ long-time partner Air Mauritius.

“Since September 2002, Air Mauritius has been placing their marketing codes on all Emirates services operated between Dubai and Mauritius and will continue to do so with the commencement of the second A380 operation. In December 2013 the codeshare partnership was expanded to include several points beyond Dubai, and over the last few months the two airlines have been in discussions to enhance the relationship and increase the number of destinations covered by the codeshare agreement,” said Mr. Abbas.

Commenting on the second A380 service, the Honourable Minister of Tourism and Leisure for Mauritius, Michael Yeung Sik Yuen, said, “Since the launch of the first A380 to Mauritius last year, we’ve received a very good response from travellers, especially with our new and modern airport that can accommodate large aircraft. This new milestone will promote Mauritius and the airport as a ‘premier league’ destination in the Indian Ocean, being the only airport that will offer Emirates’ services using entirely A380 aircraft.”

The addition of this second iconic aircraft on the route opens up further opportunities for travellers to connect seamlessly on an Emirates A380 between Mauritius and a range of global destinations on Emirates’ growing network that now serves 143 gateways in 81 countries.

The Emirates' A380 operating as EK703/704 is a wide-bodied double decker aircraft with a capacity of 519 passengers including 14 luxurious First Class Private Suites, 76 lie-flat beds in Business Class and 429 spacious seats in Economy Class.

On board, passengers in all three cabins can enjoy up to 1,800 channels of the latest movies, TV shows and music from around the world alongside a range of games on the award-winning ice inflight entertainment system. The latest technology allows passengers to stay connected throughout the flight with high-speed Wi-Fi access and mobile phone and data services.

Emirates' First Class and Business Class experience on the A380 takes pampering to another level, and with two daily A380 flights to Mauritius, Emirates will now offer 56 First Class suites and 304 Business Class seats every day on the route. First Class cabin customers can freshen up at 40,000 feet in the two onboard Shower Spas, while both First and Business Class travellers can exchange travel tales and talk business in the popular Emirates A380 Onboard Lounge, while sipping fine wines and cocktails, and nibbling hors d'oeuvres and delicacies prepared by gourmet chefs in a relaxed social environment.

The upgraded A380 service leaves Dubai as EK703 at 1000hrs, arriving at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport at 1645hrs. It returns as EK704 leaving Mauritius at 2300hrs, landing at Dubai International Airport at 0540hrs the following day.

Yeah, that was very bizarre. I don't think we have heard of any plane flooded in mid air

Qatar Airways A380 service to LHR has been delayed to October 1:

http://airlineroute.net/2014/07/06/qr-lhr-oct14/

Rumor on Twitter says QR is waiting until they can move to Terminal 3 at LHR. In other words, QR is probably not yet ready to start A380 operations (and it makes me wonder if the new Doha airport is fully ready to receive the A380).
