Just was wondering if any airlines were going to use their maximum capacity aircraft this month to carry pax to the world cup in SA.For example Virgin and SAA use A340s on this route.Would they for this period be using their 744 s?Seeing that flights are fully booked, would think carriers would use the biggest capacity craft in their fleet .BA are the sole UK 744 user on all SA routes ?.I see that Air France are using the A380 to JNB.Is there any better way of finding out apart from Flight Tracker ?.

Found a YouTube video today: LH have used D-AIMA (A380-841) FRA-JNB yesterday (06/06/2010), operating as LH2010.

The Lufthansa Flight yesterday was a one off, it was LH's first revenue Flight with their A380, which was only delivered 2-3 Weeks ago (it's been doing Crew Training sorties since to prepare for revenue service), carrying the German Yeam and Media. As of Friday, it'll be deployed to NRT 3 times a Week, which will go daily once their second A380 arrives during the Summer. JNB will get a regular LH 380 service, but they'll have to wait for the 4th Plane to be delivered, long after the Tournament is over.

As far as actually upgrading the Equipmment in general, I don't think there are as many fans travelling to the World Cup as there have been teh last few Tournaments, the Economic Crisis isn't encouraging such a long trip to South Africa (even the nearest other African team taking part (Cameroon) is 2500 Miles from Jo'Burg), and, rightly or wrongly, South Africa is still seen as a somewhat dangerous place to visit.

Well, Aerolineas Argentinas will be using Boing 747 (419 seats) for that route, only during World Cup. They usually dont fly EZE-JNB, and will do those flights using the equipment they use for EZE-MAD or EZE-FCO.
Those routes will be served using an Airbus 340 (260 seats) during this period.

Other than FlightTracker.com in which I'm not very fluent in using<They only list equipement type for a particualr flight just a few days before departure anyway>, the most certain way is to check an airlines' own websites.

By your call sign, I'm guessing U're fm Downunder<Australia> or someone who fly QF often. QF's website does a pretty good job listing specific equipement type on QF timetable.

p.s. Is Wanala Dreaming still painted in that gorgeous aboriginal/ethnic livery? IMHO, nothing else can be more distinctively Australian than that colour scheme on an airliner....

Im no aussie but saw this gem a few years back although im sure it was on one of their 743 s.Its now on their last delivered 744 still as beautiful as ever.Probably one of the best painted liverys of all time narrowly beating SAA s rainbow 743 which after a few years parked has now gone to the great aircraft graveyard in the sky.Thanx for the info.Regards Wannala Dreaming
