SINGAPORE AIRLINES are still seeking an ”in service” date by the end of 2006 for the Airbus A380, but its seems that the summer season 2007, starting at the end of March 2007, is more likely. Speaking at a Star Alliance press conference in Nagoya last week Chew Chong Seng, Singapore Airlines CEO, said that the airline would take the first four production aircraft and that two would be used on the Heathrow route and the other pair to Australia. The aircraft would be configured with 480 seats and feature, first, Raffles and economy classes. He said that the airline was pleased with its two very long haul routes (both from Singapore), New York (18 hours plus depending on wind) and Los Angeles (16/17 hours), both achieving a positive cash flow situation and 75% load factor using an Airbus A340-500.
