    But the website doesn't tell you anything about loads and yields of their flights .
    But since they want the A380's, they must be doing something right. Atleast Eh ?

      Whole bunch better than XXXX though.

      Rumour has it that the Aussies called it XXXX because they never thought they'd get away with calling it BEER.

            Does anyone know why they have air stairs that has the Swissport and Qantas logos in LAX? Was it specially imported for this flight?

              Not necessarily whatsoever.

              Well, Swissport does ground handling at LAX, and QANTAS usually has 5 RAD (Rest All Day) 747s at LAX, so it's not surprising that they have their own air stairs there.

                Then care to explain it to me, DAL767. But don't tell me KingFisher were impulsive to buy the A380's either just to be on the list along with the others.. lol

                Specifict task for the job ? Nah Not really. I think it was a common thing to use the any airstairs. Swissport happens to be one of the ground service operators at LAX.


                PS: Swissport is active at 180 airports in 42 countries on five continents.

                  No, it is solely about being the first Indian carrier to order the A380, nothing more, nothing less. When IT placed the order for 5 A380s (and 5 A345s and 5 A333s), they had just started flying with a handful of A320s, and even these days by Indian regulations they are not even allowed to fly longhaul flights out of India, and that won't change for the next 2 years or so either. Had it not been for the A380 delays, they would have gotten their first A380s at a time when they couldn't even use them for longhaul flights. Not to mention the question as to how in the blue hell they even expect to fill any A380s profitably on longhaul routes. They are no AI, which has decades of longhaul experience, nor are they Jet Airways, an airline that has a large and growing fan community in India, due to a large network. IT doesn't have the network, it doesn't have the experience, and leadership comes from outside the aviation. This order is about as close-to-reality as EK's 43-plane order for the A380.

                      What's with the red windows?

                      The engines and the "closeups" are really nice. Desktop-worthy.

                        Here is the video:


                        Later on when I have time, I'll try and put music to it and other things. Also the video is actually a lot better quality then shown on Youtube.
