In the fact sheet of the A380 says 5 prayer areas, does it has special places to pray??

If its true, thats a common feature on planes in that airline?

Huh, interesting. I'll read through the fine print because I went straight to the images after glancing through the seat details. I don't know if it will become a common feature for MH's A380s... but it will be a distinct feature for the airline indeed. Possibly to replace the bar feature other airlines provide.

Then it seems like it should be added to EK's A380s too...? I think it would add a nice touch to traveling Muslims.

How about leg stretching and exercise areas for everyone? Sounds like a more appealing concept.

That'd be great... But it takes much more space in an already dense aircraft. Plus I don't know if yoga equipment would be allowed on board as a form of exercise.

Malaysia Airlines provides two and three class travel services on certain flights. Passengers in first class and business class enjoy lounge, fully flat seats, meat and beverage etc plus personal entertainment systems. However, the economy class passengers enjoy food and beverage and entertainment systems.

Two classes on the A380? I thought there are three... two-class aircraft would be most aircraft (B738, A330, and B777)

haha yes, I know it's three classes. But, it's possible to have two classes on an A380, but I don't know which airline/s would like to have that configuration.

Qatar could go with a two class layout, they claim they're business is just as good, if not better than most first class on other airlines. They also have a two class layout on the 787.

Here is an article from Channel NewsAsia.

Singapore Airlines to buy five more A380s, 20 A350s: statement
Posted: 24 October 2012 1740 hrs


SINGAPORE: Singapore Airlines (SIA) is ordering five more Airbus A380 superjumbos and 20 A350s in a deal worth US$7.5 billion to grow its capacity and for fleet renewal, the airline said on Wednesday.

Deliveries are due to begin in 2017, the airline said in a statement.

The airline currently operates 19 A380 superjumbos and already had firm orders in place for 20 A350s, for delivery from 2015.

SIA said the A350s are intended for use on medium and long-haul routes.

As part of the deal, SIA said Airbus will acquire its five A340-500s, which will be removed from service in the fourth quarter of the 2013.

The airline said it will cease non-stop flights between Singapore and Los Angeles and between Singapore and Newark in view of a lack of replacement aircraft in its fleet with "sufficient range and operating economics".

SIA CEO Goh Choon Phong said: "Although (it is) disappointing that we will be halting these services, we remain very committed to the US market. Over the past two years we have increased capacity to both Los Angeles and New York by deploying A380 superjumbos on flights via Tokyo and Frankfurt. We will also continue to explore additional options to enhance our US services,"

In the statement, SIA also added that its Scoot unit will acquire 20 Boeing 787 aircraft to support its growth plans.

Virgin Atlantic has pushed back its Airbus A380 deliveries to 2017 and says that the eventual operation of the superjumbo will depend on the prevailing market conditions near the time.

What if it actually happened? That would mean BA and VS would compete on A380 services.
