Yes, you're absolutely right! SQ is a launch customer. That was first one.

Also for flights like NY - London .... they have multiple flights a day because thats what passengers want. They want the flexibility of choosing when they leave instead 1 flight at 1 flight per day. So you wont see bigger planes and less flights.

Some occasions that happens ... I believe Air France to LA has 1 A380 vs 2 777 flights.

So some markets its good to have an A380 and other times it doesnt work.

I dont know where you talking about, made a lot of A380 flights last year:

Singapore-Frankfurt
Amsterdam-Dubai
Dubai-Seoul
Tokyo-Dubai
Dubai-Amsterdam
Amsterdam-Dubai
Dubai-Beijing
Shanghai-Dubai
Dubai-Amsterdam

Every flight was fully packed!

I also did 2 A380 flights last year:

ICN-LAX
LAX-SIN via NRT

All of them are fully packed with passengers! Don't mind the Boeing fanboy. I don't know why he hates the A380 so much. For me, the A380 is 2nd quietest plane I rode on. The quietest is still the 787 Dreamliner but still I love the roomy interior and comfortable ride of the A380. Didn't feel any turbulence while riding it.

The A380 hasn't been particularly successful. I don't see a successor for it.

Depends. If we're looking at the long term, maybe 30-40 years from now, and given developments in aircraft engine technology and better alloys, perhaps we'll indeed see an A380 successor. The A380 herself came into service 37 years after the 747.

Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

Not really considering a new livery has been unveiled.

The first Transaero B737-800 in new livery has surprisingly gone into the Air Livery paintshop & had the Transaero title modified.

Even before the A380 was launched 767's, and A300/A310's out sold the 747 by far.

To some extent even the A330's, and 777's had high sales before the A380 launch while the 747's were being made.

I predict in the long run Airbus will sell more than 1000 units.

The second most likely carrier to place an order is SQ. I haven't heard much of Singapore Airlines complaining about filling up the a380 so I assume they might be interested in a moderate stretch. If Airbus can make sure the aircraft can do SIN-LAX and SIN-EWR non-stop profitably, I believe SQ would be more than interested. And if SQ does place an order, it's gonna be at least for 20 frames.

I believe Etihad and Qatar will also place a modest order whether it is stretched or not.

One airline Airbus really needs to woo harder is Cathay Pacific, CX really has the network to support a quite large a380 fleet (5 daily LHR flights, multiple daily LAX, JFK, SFO as well as Australia). And with the constraints they are facing (slot-restriction at airports like LHR and limited number of flights to Australia), even the 777-9 is not big enough to support growth over time. The a380 is the only solution. A streched version means also better cargo capacity which might interest CX.

Whether it is stretched or not, what is sure is that US and European carriers won't be interested in it, which means that the stretch won't change much the number of orders Airbus will get.
I'm sure SQ will not complain. Being the launch customer, it has to be faithful to the aircraft. Unless there's good reason to do otherwise. If the stretched version comes out, SQ might convert it's remaining orders.

I've only been to SQ's SIN-SYD, SYD-SIN 380 flights. Both of which had good load factors (I mean at Y where I was at). Otherwise, SQ will not put in a 2nd 380 to Sydney this season, perhaps to cater to Australians wanting to evade the winter cold.

On the SYD-SIN flight, here are a couple of photos taken last Saturday:

Main deck


Upper deck

Those exit row seats are just perfect for tall people! I'm not sure if they can be preselected free-of-charge.

A day prior to the flight, the main deck has around 10 vacant seats and upper deck has 2 (of 88). In the end, those two seats got taken and only 1 was left. Then my seatmate left me and took that seat, which I suppose was beside her friend. No hard feelings, I had both H and K seats for myself.

My 3 other 380 flights with BA (LHR-HKG), EK (HKG-DXB) and KE (ICN-JFK) are also quite full especially EK and BA. MH, as we know already, is selling its 6 380s. It has started to change its 380 routes with smaller 772s. Maybe there are now takers for the SJ. I wonder who will it be....(Too bad, some of us may not experience its 380 in MH livery before they get sold)

No, they are trying to sell (or is it to wet lease to other company?) 3 of their 6 A380 if I remember correctly. They have no issue filling the KUL-LHR and LHR-KUL flights and I think they plan to keep 3 for this route.
The problem is with their other routes which are not large enough to justify an A380.

Which are their other routes? I only know they fly their A380s to Heathrow.
