Effective from 25 March 2012, Emirates will become by far London Heathrow’s largest A380 operator. The airline, based in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, will from March 2012 offer four daily flights to London in the UK with the world's largest passenger airliner.
The deployment means four of Emirates’ five daily Heathrow flights will be served by the A380 – twice as many as any other carrier.
The Emirates’ A380 offers 14 flat-bed First Class Private Suites with electrically operated doors and 76 fully-flat mini-pods in Business Class - all with aisle access - on the upper deck. Downstairs, there are 427 comfortable contoured seats in Economy Class, spread across four separate cabins.
Passengers on Emirates' A380 flights have a choice of over 1200 channels of films, television programmes, music and games. A personal satellite phone is furthermore fitted to each seat, which also carries a seat-back sms and email service, along with seat to seat calling and a personal picture viewing facility.
