    ANA is the launch customer. They have been doing proving runs and in-service testing for some time using Boeing-owned aircraft but with ANA livery. Now that certification is soon to be at hand ANA has already scheduled commercial flights. ANA will operate commercial flights beginning in October with a charter Haneda-Hong Kong and also probably a couple domestic ones, following whch intial use will be on domestic flights. United is to be the first US carrier to get them, beginning in early 2012.

    Rumor says it is better in the 787, mostly because 787 has humidity control which cannot be easily done in the 777 due to corrosion concerns. For certain A380 is a far easier ride than are other aircraft and B787 shares several of the customer pleasing features of teh A380. Let the howls of righteous indignation on whichever side now begin!

    Now that the 787 is certified, in a short time one can ride both, compare and decide for oneself.

    I do too! I really like the A380 of AF,LH,SQ and QF, those being my only ones. AF in C, the others F but all outstanding. The 787 should have an equal experience.

    Let's look forward to it then! The new LH F on A380 is a huge step up over what was offered previously.
