The MSN014, the first A380 for QANTAS was seen taxiing under its own power today for the first time at a very wet and rainy Toulouse. The aircraft, F-WWSK, should undertake its maiden flight shortly. By comparison, the first taxi tests for F-WWSH, MSN011, the first A380 for Emirates, took place roughly a week prior to the aircraft's first flight in early September.

Oh yeah, and just found this. Apparently, you can now book for the first Emirates A380 flight on October 1 from Dubai to JFK.
