Rumours.

Start of October again for commercial flights.

4/5 to be at Heathrow and the others stored.

G-XLED arrived back from Manila today at Heathrow after 3 months of heavy maintenance

Can they switch out these with the 747 πŸ˜‚
I’m actually surprised that these would be coming back so soon

Sadly, no. Cries

The 744 requires it to be bascially full as it requires the premium seats to profit.

The A380 will probably be deployed on DXB/JFK/LAX/SFO and it can have around 75% and still make money. I believe

Never as good as the 747

A380 is more fuel efficient than the 747-400 and don’t forget that where 747 will become a freighter, A380 will go to the scrapyard because there is no market for it.

As of their latest schedule update, the A380 will fly to Los Angeles, Johannesburg, and Miami from October 25th until March 27th, and all will be a 1x daily service. From February 1, the A380 will also fly to San Francisco, replacing the 77W.
