Is the new airbus monster flying over the U.S. yet?
Emirates starts New York service on Aug. 1 with 2 per week (Wed. + Fri.). This is in addition to the existing two daily flights they already operate. Qantas says “late October” for Melbourne/LAX. Air France maybe later this year.
Cool! It should be easy to spot it flying overhead. Any flight numbers, or tail #'s yet to track them?
I don’t know them offhand, check the airlines websites for dates, times and numbers.
Checked, and Quantas starts the middle of October. Singapore, couldn’t find anything yet, but will keep looking. Thanks.
No they don’t because no airline named Quantas has ordered the A380. Qantas did, though.
Sorry - pet peeve of mine. The airline whose original name was Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services abbreviates their name to QANTAS and, more recently, to Qantas, according to an email I received from Qantas.
No, not because I am trying to get Dami to another big post number, but because I agree with him: ignoring the basics of names and the King’s English grammar is just painful to watch.
Or I could say “panfull TOO wach”.
Emirates’ A380 will now be flying on the Dubai - New York JFK route on Day 357 on EK201/202 in August.
In September, The A380 operates on Day 57, and increase to Daily from 01OCT08.
Update: it is also scheduled for a non-rev visit to SFO on August 4.
