Buenos Aires will be the first airport in Latin America to receive the A380. Qantas will do this on the route from Sydney to the argentine capital.

Lufthansa also flights daily to Buenos Aires on B747 from Frankfurt non-stop. Do you guys thing they'll sometime change it to A380?

From wiki:
Quote:
Eurowhite is a term used in aviation to describe airline aircraft paint schemes which are predominantly white, usually adorned only with the airline's name along the forward fuselage, and its logo on the vertical tail.
Btw I don't mind it and yes I'm european.

Everytime you admire a Eurowhite livery, god kills a kitten. Please, think of the kittens.
