Its a shame that this bird will never fly with Skymark in the near future. Any word when or who this might go to? One of the ME3 would probably would like to pick this plane up and have less time waiting for a factory fresh one.

Skymark might be the unfortunate first airline to go down because they invested wrongly on the A380.

Stopping the A380

This video shows an A380 landing at TLS using only the spoilers of one side (8) to stop the plane. Must be some kind of test, I think.

I love the A380 but hate to detour via hubs...Melbourne is about the same size as Sydney but we often have to go through Sydney to leave Australia then have to stop at another hub in Europe or North America before our destination...Slightly smaller international aircraft can fly direct saving hours of travel...

Why is that? Almost every major airline that flies to Sydney also flies to Melbourne.

It will then join Lufthansa and Air France as the third European carrier (and fourth overall if we include Singapore Airlines, which operated it for many months last year) to operate the Super Jumbo to SFO. It will initially operate the A380 5x weekly (out of 14), replacing B747-400, starting 29 March 2015, with BA287/286. Schedules:

BA285 LHR1130 – 1435SFO 744 D
BA287 LHR1405 – 1655SFO 388 x23
BA287 LHR1405 – 1655SFO 744 23

BA284 SFO1640 – 1100+1LHR 744 D
BA286 SFO1905 – 1315+1LHR 388 x23
BA286 SFO1905 – 1315+1LHR 744 23

Does Asiana only operate 777s to SFO?

Qatar Airways and Airbus have “resolved” a three-month-long dispute that had been blocking delivery of the airline’s first A380s, according to a new Reuters article that cites industry sources.

The national carrier’s inaugural A380 flight to London Heathrow was initially planned for June, but has been pushed back repeatedly since then.

Airbus and Qatar Airways have not commented on Reuters’ report, but news of a resolution suggests that there will be no more delays past Oct. 10, which is the latest date the airline has listed for its first A380 service to London.

The October launch is despite remarks from a senior Airbus official over the summer that the new planes would not be ready until December.

Speaking to reporters at Farnborough air show in the UK in July, Tom Williams, executive vice president of programs at Airbus, said “I don’t see it (delivery) being an issue for year end.”

He added that the delay involved issues related to the cabin, including paint in some areas having a bubbled texture, joint lines on wallpaper and some gaps in non-textile floor coverings believed to be in the galley.

At the same show, Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker said the airline would not be placing any new orders for aircraft from the company until the delay was sorted.

“I am very disappointed,” the Wall Street Journal reported Al Baker as saying, adding that he said Airbus had to admit to faults on its A380 delivery or he would do so for them.

Waiting

Qatar Airways initially planned to receive three of its order of 13 A380 super-jumbos in June, to be flown first to London, and subsequently to Paris and New York.

Just yesterday, flight tracker Airline Route reported that Qatar Airways has pushed back its the first A380 service bookings for Doha to Paris for another two weeks – from Oct. 16 to Nov. 1.

Once operational, Qatar Airways’ A380s will have 517 seats – 457 in economy, 52 in business and eight in first class.

Its first and business class cabins – and a special lounge area for premium passengers – will both be located on the aircraft’s upper deck, with economy seating being split between both floors of the aircraft.
