                Which airline will get this one (I was reading its MSN004 in the Airbus PR) once the testing is completed?

                          The first A380 is due into Frankfurt at 09:00 on Saturday 29th October for taxi and gate docking tests. FRA is the first airport globally to get a gate ready for use (E8 i think). The German authorities have suggested they will close the spectators area for this event, and that large screens will be erected in Frankfurt city centre for the crowds to watch the arrival / departure. They are concerned after 100,000 people turned up at Toulouse for the maiden flight.

                          I believe it is scheduled for departure at 08:00 on Sunday 30th. I am not sure if it is returning to Toulouse or flying direct to Singapore.

                            @LeftcoastCanada : this one, and three of the test aircraft, will be for Etihad after refurbishment. It's indeed MSN004.
                            MSN002 is due to be transfered to flight test very soon. Actually it is supposed to be already transfered. First flight in few days now.
                            MSN001 will remain an Airbus test aircraft, like the A346 (MSN360)...

                            Talking about the MSN001, it spent some days in Spain this week. I don't actually know if it is back right now.

                            After a quick flyby in Hamburg (open days), and now few days in Spain (flight test), it seems that only the UK didn't get the A380...
                            I hope you'll be able to see it over your head soon (cant' confirm your info, Airline owner).
