The new A380 from Airbus is making its first flight to the USA today. It will land at JFK today and go on to Chicago tomorrow before returning to Germany. It is scheduled to make it’s first flight to Dulles on the 25th.
This aircraft is about twice the size of a 747 . It isn’t hard to imagine the increased passenger load on the airport services as it comes into service. Louisville is expanding some of it’s runways to handle the A380…not for passenger carrying airlines, but for the huge U P S hub located here. UPS is said to be ordering 10 of the aircraft for its service to international locations.
I thought there were supposed to be 2 simualtaneous landings.
One in LA and one in NY>.>
