December third was an historic day in aviation: The longest flight for the A380 in the world touched down in Los Angeles after a 16 hour and 20 minute flight from Dubai.
Emirates Airlines worked hard to make this route one of luxury and excellent service. On board the huge double-decker airbus were over 400 hours of in-flight Hollywood movies which can be viewed on ice Digital Widescreens.
The route takes its passengers from the United Arab Emirates’ Dubai International Airport (DBX) to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) via the Russian Federation, the North Pole and Eastern Canada, finally cutting diagonally over the United States.
“Bringing the glamorous A380 set of wings to the City of Angels seemed like a natural fit as this aircraft mirrors the luxury of the Hollywood lifestyle,”
said Hubert Frach, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations West.
Emirates operates 63 weekly flights to the United States, including routes to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Houston, Washington DC and New York JFK. Two of the three daily flights to New York use the luxurious A380.
