    Airbus 380 to go thru maiden test flight.....

    I've flown on most of the big planes out there, since I travel to Asia often.

    Some of my longer flights are anywhere from 12 to 16 hour flights (actual air time,non-stop).

    I've flown with Singapore Airlines (Very Nice Airline) and I'm happy to see they will be one of the first to be adding the 380 to their fleet...

    This plane is HUGE and very classy......

    Problem is, there are not that many airports in the world that can accomadate this behemuth....

    Both international airports in the Philippines,(where I go to almost every year) can not handle this planes 80 plus meter wingspan......Thats right, 240 plus ft. across... :roll:

    I hope I do get the chance to fly in one though, maybe from JFK to Singapore?....

    Here it is....

    Whew, I was worried with those first few photos. I am glad they finally put some engines on that thing. I was a littled worried that that thing was unsafe.

    LOL

    Man that is nice, I have been hearing about it for a long time and it is just about hear.

    Looks very very nice.

    I get frequent flier mileage from my stewardess chick
    She look right in that tight blue dress, she's thick
    She gives me extra pillows and seat back love
    So I had to introduce her to the Mile High Club!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Yeah, I looked closer and your name is on that seat.

    Heck people are going to fly on that plane just to have a trip. Put some pull handle gambling machines on there and that would bring tons of gamblers. Flying should be much more than just sleeping on the plain and feeling squished like a sardine in a can.

    Re: Airbus 380 to go thru maiden test flight.....

    Here is a nice tip,

    I usually wait till the boarding line is almost cleared out.

    Then I always ask if I can be bumped up in class, I'de truly have to say, about 70% of the time my wish is granted. It makes a big difference flying in Buisness Class compaired to economy.....

    Note: This is for long international flights, for domestic flights they usually laugh at you....LOL...

    I've even been bumped up to First Class 2 times before. Now thats really flying.........And the best looking Stewerdesses work in First Class....Yum.....
