Let's see how the flight Paris-London operated by AF with an A380 works, maybe it will be able to start a new trend, this is, using A380s in profitable short haul flights. I'm really looking forward to that!

Even if it's not profitable for Air France, flying the A380 on the short Paris-London route is a cheap way to qualify a maximum of pilots on the beast in a minimum of time.

Wouldn't it be cheaper if you use a simulator?

I thought Japanese like to use B747 on short domestic routes like Tokyo - Osaka. Maybe one day they use A380.

Using the A380 on the Paris-London route makes all the economic sense for me... the alternative of letting it to get dust on the airport while waiting for the next trip to South Africa is a tremendous waste of money

JAL and ANA haven't been using the B747 on the Tokyo - Osaka route for a while now. The Shinkansen is faster (door to door), is more frequent and has a much bigger capacity then the air route. The domestic B747s are now mainly used on the Tokyo - Okinawa and the Tokyo - Sapporo routes where there isn't any competition from the train, but those routes aren't busy enough to use a A380. It even looks like that both JAL and ANA will retire the B747s on domestics flights this year and JAL is even planning on retiring it's complete fleet of B747s as part of it's restructuring program.

So if ANA still decides to buy a couple of A380s, they will be for international routes. And JAL won't be buying them anytime soon, simply because they haven't got the money to pay for them.

Lufthansa launches Airbus A380 on Frankfurt-Narita route

By KAZUAKI NAGATA
Staff writer

Deutsche Lufthansa AG launched its new flagship Airbus A380 between Frankfurt and Narita on Saturday, becoming the first European carrier and the second after Singapore Airlines to operate the world's biggest commercial airplane at Narita International Airport.

"As of today we've opened up a new window of opportunities for the future between our two countries," said Lufthansa Chief Executive Officer Wolfgang Mayrhuber during a news conference held in Tokyo.

"The A380 is most advanced in terms of technology," he said, explaining that the cabin is quieter, the economy seats have been completely redesigned for greater convenience, business-class seats have been upgraded and there are brand new first-class seats.

The new plane, which is made by Airbus SAS, has 526 seats, comprising eight first-class and 98 business-class seats on the upper floor and 420 economy seats on the first floor.

The A380 also offers improved fuel efficiency and is less noisy. According to Lufthansa, the A380 can carry one customer for 100 km using only three liters of fuel.

Starting in August, Lufthansa plans to use the A380 for all Frankfurt-Narita flights, which is code-shared through its alliance partner All Nippon Airways Co.

"With the inaugural flight of the A380 this time, the Japanese market has become more important," Mayrhuber said.

Airbus pleased with new Emirates contract

Quote:
Emirates has put in a huge order with Airbus, with 32 Airbus A380 aircraft to be delivered.

In a major endorsement for the aircraft, the multibillion-dollar order makes Emirates the only major customer for the massive 500 passenger aircraft.

Airbus has orders for 234 planes, but from only 17 customers, with none of them from the US

Emirates has so far placed 40 percent of the orders for the plane.

Meanwhile, Cathay Pacific has rejected the A380 in favour of more economical, longer ranged twin engined jets, including the 777-300ER.

Airbus had long hoped that Cathay Pacific would be a big A380 customer.

While Hong Kong and other Asian hubs have other A380 operators, it is believed Cathay thought the 777 was a better mixed mode passenger/freighter aircraft.

Airbus have stated that they are not going to bother bidding for the contract, aparently such a small order is not worth it for them. But after the us air force tanker fiasco do you blame them?
