Hi,

the next job for the JFK's A388 (A380-800) is a flight to KORD, departing in 15 minutes (11:25 am EDT, DLH8941). The atc stuff said, this machine comes back 12 hours later - around 11:30 pm, and tomorrow there will be "a couple of" departures.

Bye

Do someone have any idea where the one in LAX is going to go now?

Hopefully  Phoenix,AZ. I would love to see it.  I don't think Sky Harbor made modifications to receive this type of aircraft though.

Has any one seen it "in person"?

The aircraft is scheduled to depart LAX on the south side of the airport between 7:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. Tuesday and can only be viewed from the south side.

This means Sandpiper and the Proud Bird are going to be packed.

Also imperial hill, where you can get a real great view of takeoff.

About 5 minutes ago, a controller on KJFK Ground just mentioned that the A380 was due back there in about 30 minutes...

DLH8943

actually he's on the Tower feed now...

At 10:00 pm EDT the JFK's one A388 will leave to EDDF - flight #: DLH8945. So lets hear, how the atc officers say good bye :)

[I think from EDDF it will take another flight to shanghai]
