A380 production to end

Hoping against hope, production of my favourite airliner will cease. The A380 is big, beautiful (in my eyes) and super comfortable - well, and just plain impressive.

While passengers like me loved it, the airlines - apart from Emirates - never fell in love with it, sadly.



And this clip sends shivers up my spine


At least these friendly beasts will still be flying for another couple of decades.

Ian

That is an impressive looking beast. Never flown in one.

Not sure about double deckers. I like smaller jets.

Nice little vid. Sounds very loud.

I've flown upstairs on A380s a few times - and once (purely by luck) - I had a very cheap ticket but for some reason all the connections coming home from Tokyo were premium economy) with Air France - which was as good as many business class seats if you ask me. The A380 is very quiet, especially upstairs. There's nothing quite like it.

Nice !

We only fly short haul and for package hols. So the option to fly in this type of jet hasn't been an option.
