Singapore Airlines has announced the day of the first commercial flight of the A380. The flight, SQ 380, will be on October 25, from Singapore to Sydney. ""Everyone at Singapore Airlines is keenly anticipating the delivery of this new plane, and our people are working hard on final preparation for its entry into service," said Singapore CEO Chew Choon Seng. "The first flight promises to be one of the most exciting occasions in aviation history."
All of the proceeds from ticket sales for the flight will go to charity. (Apparently, ExxonMobil is also donating fuel for the trip. ) If you're interested in purchasing a seat on either the first flight (or the first return flight the next day), you'll be able to bid for one on eBay starting August 25.
