Apparently BA are bringing 4 A380s back into service from December. However to get crew familiarisation, they will be on short haul routes (Madrid and Frankfurt) from next month. Cheap and easy way to get a Super Jumbo trip in.

British Airways is rumored to be planning Airbus A380 flights to both Frankfurt and Madrid next month, according to Head for Points. The flights would allow the airline to conduct crew training on short-haul flights.

Could have done with those out and about a bit sooner. Currently in a CW bed on a rather elderly 777. Seat power system on the fritz, inflight AV appears to be of a 2005 vintage. Even a small cascade with redeployed A380s allowing A350s to spread their wings a bit would have been nice.

Off topic, but those 777's with the old entertainment system are well on there way out now (the cabin anyway, not the aircraft themselves), being replaced with a much better Panasonic system and the new club 'vector' seats.
