That didn't happen with me when I was travelling to (and from) Australia three years ago. And both times I was on a Qantas A380.

Gulf Airlines Raise the Stakes in Luxury

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...41673159422600

"It's all about privacy," Emirates President Tim Clark said in an interview. "Our new bedroom concept will take it to the next level."

Emirates, the biggest operator of Airbus Group NV's A380 superjumbo and the largest customer of Boeing Co. BA +1.55% 's new long-range 777X jet, is in the advanced stages of launching bedrooms that will likely feature on both sets of aircraft and include room service. The Dubai-based airline already has 1,562 private podlike structures it calls "suites" on its fleet of 218 aircraft.

Emirates wouldn't disclose the price it will charge for its bedrooms. But a return ticket on a New York to Dubai flight retails for around $26,000 in one of the suites, which cost around $500,000 each to produce—roughly the same as the price of a studio flat in downtown Manhattan.

That is strange then. Could have been an overweight problem or weight misproportion in the aircraft. It would be interesting if a professional could jump in and explain this.

This can happen on all types of planes - it's called air turbulence

One simple reason that I can give you is that for a short runway the pilot may lift the plane on a greater angle and this causes what you experienced or the lack of experience in flying the plane by the pilots by puling the lever earlier than required.

I got the same experience on an a320 (Vien - Bucharest) - pilot experience lacks sometimes.

You actually experience that on every take off. Some last longer than others, and some can be rough until the air starts flowing properly beneath, and above the wings.

I once had a bad experience taking off from Heathrow in an A320 right after a Virgin Atlantic A340-600. It also lasted at least five seconds of really really rough turbulent shacking. I also noticed that our pilot didn't wait very long after the Virgin took off before we did, but then I'm sure the control tower is the one who decides when it is time to take off. If I remember right the shacking has a really high pitch noise, with high frequency shacking drowning out any other noise you hear on the plane.

Each time I took the A380 (on Singapore Airlines, Air France and Emirates), I had exceptionnally smooth take-offs and landings.

As a matter of fact, I was really surprized how smooth was the A380 during take-off... it gets into the air as if it was as light as a feather. And same goes for silence and lack of turbulences during the trip.

Now of course, I have taken the A380 only 6 times in my life if I recall correctly. Bad luck can always happen and you were probably in that case.

Qantas will start to use the A380 on the Sydney-Dallas/Fort Worth route from September 2014. It will replace the 747-400ER on this world longest non-stop route. With the A380 the stop in Brisbane on the return trip will be eliminated, the service will now be non-stop in both directions. The frequency will go down from daily to 6x a week. Qantas will reduce the number of A380 flights to Hong Kong to make this new service possible.

15h inside an airplane... 35" pitch should be mandatory in those circumstances.

In April, the Airbus backlog reached 5,508 aircraft – check out our orders & deliveries

Orders & Deliveries

Quote:


The 78 bookings logged by Airbus in April were led by American Airlines’ acquisition of 71 single-aisle aircraft, continuing this leading U.S.-based carrier’s creation of a major A320 Family fleet. Also included in the month’s order book were an A320 for a private customer, along with six A330s to be outfitted as Multi-Role Tanker Transports (MRTTs).

American Airlines’ acquisition involved 64 A321s in the CEO (current engine option) version, along with seven of the shorter-fuselage A319ceo version. This order underscores the A320ceo product line’s sustained market appeal, with the aircraft to join an American Airlines fleet that ultimately will consist of A320 Family jetliners in both the CEO and NEO (new engine option) configurations.

Completing the single-aisle bookings in April was an unnamed private customer’s order for an A320ceo.

The six widebody A330-200s included in the month’s new business are aircraft that will become A330 MRTTs, providing airlift and aerial refuelling capacity in operation with the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

Taking the month’s new business and cancellations into account, Airbus’ net orders recorded in 2014 totalled 142 jetliners through the end of April.

The 52 aircraft provided to customers during the month involved 40 A320 Family jetliners and 12 A330s, bringing 2014 deliveries to 193 total aircraft for 61 customers. April’s deliveries included an A330-200F for Synergy Aerospace, to be flown by OceanAir – which becomes a new operator of the world’s most modern mid-size freighter.

Based on the month’s order and delivery activity, the Airbus backlog reached 5,508 aircraft at the end of April 2014, compared to 4,973 at the same period last year.

Review the worldwide Airbus orders and deliveries totals with the summary table, below. For a full listing, utilise the link underneath the summary table to download the latest Excel file – which is updated monthly and lists all firm commercial aircraft transactions, including the family of Airbus executive and private aviation jetliners.

So Qantas Beats out Emirates on starting A380 service to Dallas!

Does Qantas name its aircraft individually?

Excellent!

How long is a typical flight from Dallas to Sydney on the current Boeing 747? From Los Angeles to Sydney, that flight (on an A380) lasts between 15 and 16 hours. I imagine a Dallas to Sydney flight would add at least a couple extra hours to that.
