Reply To: BA’s A380 Takes Centre Stage at Paris Air Show

Thanks Xuluman – never thought they would fly empty.

I am very interested to learn the logistics of how this was authorised. Consultations / agreement would have had to been made with:

**both countries aircrew licensing as I cant imagine the BA pilots would be issued with Aussie licenses

**the hull insurers to allow non airline employees front seat access to the 380

It couldn’t have been so straight forward…………. or perhaps it was…

Far from being critical, I think it shows an interesting solution to flight training, when an airline, or a company buys new equipment and need pilots to have hands on experience.

I know there are zero flight time conversions within the Airbus family, but I am sure pilots will always feel more confident after flying the real

Excellent cooperation between 2 former alliance partners.
