Reply To: A380 – white elephant or the future?

I really enjoy flying on an A380. Most airlines have introduced some fantastic hard product on their A380s, because the sheer size of it gives them a lot more flexibility. I’ve met some really interesting people in the bar on Emirates – it’s a great experience to be able to sit and socialise with others and provides a welcome alternative to just sitting and watching tv or movies (or working!). IMO it does provide a smoother ride than a 777 too. If there was a negligible price difference between an A380 and another aircraft I’d go to the A380 in J, not so sure about Y as I wouldn’t want to have to wait a long time in case of a short layover between flights. I certainly would avoid a high density A380 purely because I presume boarding would have to start over an hour before departure and who knows how long it would take for all those bags to come off….!
