Back in 2008, on August 1st to be precise, Emirates operated its first scheduled Airbus A380 flight to New York. Today the airline flies to 21 A380 destinations including London Heathrow, Rome, Moscow, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Auckland. More than 7,000 cabin crew support a respectable fleet of 35 A380s, together with nearly 670 flight deck crew.

Over the five years of operation, more than 35 million meals have been served during 20,000 trips, spanning 265 million kilometres, and 37 airports have been visited.

"Five swift years have gone by since Emirates changed the face of air travel with this remarkable aircraft. Its popularity is now firmly rooted across our six continent network, while our customers continue to enthuse about our onboard product; the overall quietness of this huge aircraft, a unique sense of spaciousness in Economy Class, mini-pod lie-flat seats in Business Class and the sanctuary of Private Suites in First Class with access to two Onboard Shower Spas," said Tim Clark, president of Emirates Airline.

The main talking point amongst those who have flown on the upper deck of the A380 is the Onboard Lounge, where Business Class and First Class travellers can exchange tales and talk business over a drink at 40,000 feet.
