The A380 superjumbo has been delayed yet again, this time pushing it into next year. It was supposed to be realeased with singapore airlines late this year. Appearently, they are having difficulty installing the wiring, which is setting them back. The release of these $300 million double-decker planes are now planned for october of 2007.

At Heathrow there were adverts which said - Singapore Airlines, First To Fly The Airbus A380 from Heathrow.

I thought that should be punctuated differently:

Singapore Airlines, First To Fly The Airbus A380 from Heathrow?

It just happened last tuesday. There was a delay shortly after the first flight of the A380, but this one is completely new.
