The Airbus A380 made its first commercial flight quite recently - in 2007. It became the largest passenger liner in the world, beating the previous record of the Boeing 747 series 8. The new capacity record is 853 passengers on two full-fledged decks on board the Airbus A380, which carry four turbojet engines.
Of course, 853 passengers can only hold one of the versions of the plane with salons only of economy class (single economy class), and there are few such planes. More widespread version A380 with three classes: economic, business and the first class, which can accommodate 555 passengers.
We will not talk much about the technical characteristics of the Airbus A380, but rather focus on how you can fly it.
Several years ago on the Airbus A380 flights were made on the route Moscow-Dubai and back. These were flights Emirates EK131 and EK132.
November 30, 2014 flights of this liner between Moscow and Dubai ceased. The reason is obvious - a weak demand for flights due to the deteriorating economic situation in Russia. Since December 1, 2014 on these flights only Boeing 777-300 aircraft fly.
We hope that our country will overcome economic problems and we will again see the Airbus A380 in Russian airports.
Now on A380 the company Emirates can fly, if you take the route from Emirates with a transfer in Dubai. The A380 aircraft flies on routes between Dubai and London, Sydney, Bangkok, Toronto, Paris, Seoul, Beijing, Manchester, Hong Kong, New York, Shanghai, Rome, Munich, Melbourne, Amsterdam, Singapore, Los Angeles, Zurich, Mauritius, Barcelona, Frankfurt, Dallas, San Francisco, Houston, Milan, Madrid and Copenhagen.
