They literally just started. There's Tokyo, Mumbai, Shanghai, Beijing, Delhi, New York/Frankfurt, and more London flights, not to mention temporary A380 services to cities to MEL.

No new SQ A380s for Tokyo as yet, the comment above lists the cities currently served by Singapore Airlines' A380s, not the new ones.

The A380 won't come to ADL... At least not on SQ's watch. Maybe EK will send them there ;-)

They will most likely change to their 78Js with the new regional seats sometime in 2019

Gold Coast getting ILS is a gamechanger.50,000 super rich Arabs land every July/August and have done religiously for a decade now (to escape 50c+) there is zero risk of diversion to BrisVegas, lookout for Gold Coast A380 seasonal flights from Emirates/Etihad/ChinaMegas...its as if they've discovered fun for the first time...Burqa clad Women riding scooters along with 8 year olds at the wheel tearing up the Oceanway & Cavill Av! ...politely of course!
