Wonder if the latest A380 will be used on the Milan Dubai route from the first of december, now a bit off topic but why the A321 with the new livery has two flags ? The one for UAE close to the nose and that of Germany in the tail.

The reason is because it is still using a German factory registration before delivery to Etihad.

Emirates To Launch A380 On Three New Routes Next Week

By Mary Sophia
1 day ago


Quote:
Dubai-based Emirates is all set to launch the jumbo A380 jet on three new routes in the first week of December, the airline said in a statement.

It will deploy the jet on routes to San Francisco, Milan and Houston from next week. With these three latest additions, Emirates A380 route network will total 33 destinations from Auckland in the East to Los Angeles in the West.

“Emirates now has 55 A380s in its fleet, one third of all A380s currently in the skies,” said Hubert Frach, Emirates divisional senior vice president, commercial operations West.

“Having the ability to launch three new A380 destinations in three days is no small feat. It requires careful planning, multi-department coordination, airport preparedness and above all the tenacity to make it happen.”

About 11 new A380 aircraft have joined the Emirates fleet this year, the company said.

The airline has also launched nine new A380 destinations in the past 12 months with its most recent ones being Mumbai, Frankfurt, Dallas and Kuwait. The superjumbo was also launched for a one-off showcase to cities such as Glasgow, Manila, Tehran and Vienna.

Over 32 million passengers have travelled in its A380 till date, the airline said.

‘New Breed Of Managers’ Needed For A380 Success, Tim Clark Believes

Nov 17, 2014 Jens Flottau | Aviation Daily

Quote:
Emirates Airline President Tim Clark believes it will take a “new breed of managers” at the top levels of major airlines to initiate stronger sales for the Airbus A380.

“Risk adversity has crept into airline boards” since the early 2000s, Clark said in Berlin. And that has led many airlines to worry about their ability to fill seats, causing them to shy away from the superjumbo.

With orders for 140 A380s, Emirates has bought 44% of the entire A380 orderbook so far. The airline currently operates 53 A380s, and Clark says it has now become easy to fill them. “It is a beast of scale and size. If connecting flights deliver five passengers each, you are already half-way there,” he notes.

Clark contends the current generation of executives have climbed the ranks during a legacy era of air transport that is now history, and in which the emergence of new players from developing new markets has not yet been as visible. But, he believes that the next generation “will recognize the value of the A380. I can’t believe the Asian carriers will not buy the A380 in big numbers.”

Since I have recently had the opportunity to fly on an A380 (in coach on Air France), I was actually disappointed. Despite being a much larger plane, there still seemed to be very little leg room.

Now a simple question: Who do you think is responsible for your lack of leg room:

A. Airbus which builts this gigantic airliner called A380?

or

B. Air France which is responsible for the seating layout?


The answer is obvious so please don´t blame the airplane but the airline.

I would blame the airline for choosing such a horrible seat layout (especially a 3-4-3), which really gives me the feeling of being cramped.

And speaking of A380s, my photos from SFO Airport:

Actually I blame Air France for the seating arrangement (since they like many other airlines seem to want to cram in as many seats as possible, passenger comfort be damned), but honestly in my experience flying on an A380 is no different than flying on any other large plane despite the hype.

I have just realize that F-14 Tomcat is almost as big as Avro Lancaster. Quite an impressive fighter plane, indeed.

That Etihad livery on those A380's is one of the best I have ever seen.

I got a wonder what expectations had you? I would hope the world largest passenger airplane flies like any other plane.
It's up to airline to do what it wants with the space. There are more room than on most other planes and the airline can choose what it does with it to a point. Some airlines have used that space for extra comfort, but you are not going to see that if you don't pay extra.

Other than that it is about moving the herd from point A to B, no matter the plane. Airlines are selling commodity product these days. Flying hasn't been a luxury product itself for a long time, so nothing is given free.

Are their lights on the top side of the rear wings to shine on the tail of the plane to help show off the airlines logo at night?
