Today (last night even, depends on your time zone) the Airbus A380 successfully did its first commercial flight from Singapore to Sydney. The returning flight from Sydney to Sigapore will be tomorrow on 26th October, departing at 16:00 and arriving at 22:15. These two flights are special charity-flights that raised over $1.3 Mio. The normal scheduled services will commence daily from 28th October.
