Stu
I believe it is to become G-XLEA?

There is a rumour that once BA take delivery of their A380's, they may be used initially on some short haul routes out of LHR (LHR-MAD has been mooted) to increase crew hours & landings on the type. Having missed out flying on one when Air Frances A380's operated on some CDG-LHR flights, I hope there's some truth in the rumours.

I hope this is true for MAD.

The fares were great on the LHR to CDG route. Only £80 return.
It was great and you got to tour the aircraft after landing too.
