More A380 Europe destinations for Kiwis
http://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/top-sto...ons-for-kiwis/

New Zealand travellers will be able to fly all the way by A380 from Auckland to four European destinations - London, Manchester, Paris and Rome - with the latest expansion of Emirates' superjumbo network.

And a fifth Europe airport, Munich, will be added to the airline's A380 network in the new year.

Emirates, one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, says that the historic capital city of Rome will be the next destination slated for its flagship A380 aircraft, from December 1.

From October 1, the A380 will begin serving Johannesburg, followed by Kuala Lumpur as of December 1 and then from January 1, 2012, the A380 will be deployed on the Munich route.

With 15 Airbus A380s currently in its fleet, Emirates is the largest operator of the environmentally friendly double-decker aircraft, operating services from Dubai to Sydney and Auckland, London Heathrow (double-daily), Manchester, Paris Charles de Gaulle, Toronto, Seoul, Bangkok, Beijing, Shanghai, Jeddah, New York and Hong Kong.

The announcement of Emirates' first permanent scheduled A380 service to Italy comes on the back of its June 6 landing at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport to mark the celebrations for the airport's 50th anniversary, while commemorating 150 years of Italian unification.

Rome is currently served twice daily by Emirates, and the airline has a double daily service to Milan and a daily flight to Venice, all offering direct connections at Dubai from Emirates four daily New Zealand services.

The A380 service will operate daily as EK 97, departing Dubai at 9.10am (local time) and arriving at Rome's Leonardo da Vinci airport at 12.35 (local). The return flight, EK 98, departs Rome at 2.35pm (local) and arrives in Dubai at 11.05pm (local).

So far in 2011, Emirates has launched passenger flights to Basra and Geneva. Services to Copenhagen will commence this coming Monday and St Petersburg services will be launched on November 1, followed by Baghdad on November 13, and Rio and Buenos Aires in January 2012.

CZ's A380 makes the plane look very unbalanced.

Yeah, those blue stripes should be between the windows, right in middle of the plane.

Game Changing A380 Flights to Asia Start Tomorrow

NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- JFK travelers are in for a treat when a new age of air service starts tomorrow: the first A380 flights to Asia from New York.

Korean Air flight 082 will depart JFK at 2 p.m., Aug. 9 and be the first A380 flight to cross the Pacific from New York. The airline will be adding Los Angeles A380 service in October.

"Our A380 flight is a game changer for New York," says Korean Air's Americas Marketing V.P., John Jackson. "We now offer service to Asia that no one else can meet. Our aircraft is roomier, quieter and more comfortable than any other serving the New York area."

"Our A380 is configured with fewer seats than any other airline to date and has passenger amenities not offered by any other carrier," Jackson explained. "Our upstairs exclusive Prestige class, duty-free showcase, Celestial Bar and other lounges, combined with the inherent roominess of the A380 aircraft, provide our passengers with an unparalleled traveling experience."

Korean Air's A380 has only 407 seats: 12 luxurious Kosmo First Class suites and 301 Economy Class seats on the first level, with the upstairs featuring 94 lie-flat sleepers spaced six feet apart.

Korean Air's unique Duty Free Showcase has been garnering a lot of attention. The area, at the base of the spiral staircase leading up to Prestige Class, features cosmetics, perfumes, liquor and accessories, with a dedicated cabin crew member on hand to assist and advise passengers with all their shopping needs. Shoppers can see and touch the actual goods, then return to their seats to make their selections in privacy.

"Our Celestial Bar offers our premium flyers the ultimate in in-flight style and relaxation. The new lounge, at the rear of the upstairs, is a unique mix of Asian aesthetics and functionality and is equipped with a hosted bar serving a range of signature cocktails exclusively created for Korean Air," Jackson added.

There are actually three bars on the aircraft: In addition to the hosted Celestial Bar, there are self-serve bars located in First Class and at the front of Prestige Class.

"We've established some valuable strategic partnerships with our new A380 service," Jackson says. "The Celestial Bar is in partnership with Absolut, and our new First and Business Class amenity kits feature DAVI products, the skincare branch of the world renowned Mondavi wine family. The upscale cosmetics are made of grape and wine extracts from California's Napa Valley, plus a variety of natural extracts."

Speaking of natural, Korean Air was one of the first airlines to offer organic salads and breads during flight and now offers low calorie and healthier eating options. It also presents one of the best wine lists in flight featuring California, French and Australian vintages.

Korean Air, America's largest Asian airline, begins A380 service tomorrow, Aug. 9, the first A380 flight to Asia from JFK. More on Korean Air is on www.koreanair.com.

That's KA A380 number 2 right ? Number 1 is doing HK and Tokyo, so what about number 3 and 4 ? I guess one for LA, but still one remaining...

The whole idea of the a380 is more space for passengers.

Of course there is a bigger potential for more passengers. But all the current operators are selling the a380 as a fairly premium product with a fairly low seating density. Korean air only have 407 seats on board their a380's.

Now, there may come a day when operators see the need for more seats, but I can't see that happening any time soon.
