Can LAS take the A380? Don't think anyone else flies there

Could be NRT? Emirates and Thai both fly there

I think it's Vegas too, though I suspect only for the winter schedules.

I have a FIRST redemption to Vegas this winter so I really hope so but I'm not going to get too excited just yet.

c-w-s if you were a "betting man" (pardon the pun ) do you think they'd merge the days that have 2 744 to one A380? And do you think it would take the 12.10 slot or the 16.40 slot ???

One of the boards resident BA pilots has hinted that LAS maybe on the cards for the A380, but we'll see what is announced!
Certainly would help reduce all the 'What type of B744 will I get on my LAS flight, new IFE or old' threads!

EI are also launching LAS for the winter season, so maybe go to 1 flight a day and on the days the A380 isn't running codeshare with EI via DUB for extra uplift! (The codeshare will obviously be for all DUB>LAS flights, but they may do the A380 on the days the EI service doesn't run!)

Unlikely, as there is more demand to HND, hence the 77W used on that route. Note also that JL is launching a second daily HND-LHR, so neither NRT or HND are likely to see a BA A380 any time soon.

Cape Town, Dallas or Chicago are my bet!

Would of thought the beast was a tad heavy premium-wise for LAS. Majority of LAS are on Mid-J.

Kind regards
