China Southern to Launch First Domestic A380 Flights

For all of you A380 freaks out there, China Southern is launching domestic flights on the A380, which I believe is the first time an A380 is being used for domestic scheduled service. The big bird will be flying Beijing to Guangzhou Oct 17-26 and Beijing to Shanghai Pu Dong October 26-28. Future schedules have not yet been released.

Japanese airlines had long used 747s (outfitted with 450+ seats) on domestic routes, but this is, as far as I can tell, the largest aircraft used on a domestic route, with 506 seats on the plane.
