How do those TV people know which way that plane is going to land a month away? Is that plane only allowed to land on one runway in one direction there? And if so, what is going to happen if the wind blows the wrong way?

Well, they just said that thanks to the help of someone which seemed to be knowledgeable in aviation.As far as I've understood, it seems it has to do with the runway capability and the wing size, as if it were landing the other way around, it wouldn't pass at some points.They already have prepared the terminal with dual jetways.

Incidently, Air France is running a contest to win a return flight Montreal to Paris on the A380. The details were in the Globe and Mail this morning.BlairCYOW

IIRC, Air France has 3 flights a day LFPG-CYUL, I guess the A380 is economicaly viable for them on this one!

Quite frankly, I don't see how the A380 is economically viable on ANY route. :) But I guess it is, or they wouldn't be putting it into revenue service.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian

My friend, who works for an airline that has 380's on order, told me this summer that the first North American airport that will have paid 380 service will be Montreal/Dorval thru Air France. He expects it will replace the three daily Air France flights.
