    Thumbs up A380 Photos at Pearson Airport

    I don't know where the photos originated from but a friend from Canada sent them to me.

    A380 at Pearson Airport, Toronto.

    Quite a machine and beautiful photos.

    Sorry, no cockpit photos

    Awesome photos!

    I'll be on the Emirates A380 this Sunday so I'll see if I can snatch a cockpit photo. They generally let you in once the plane is parked at the gate.

    Re: A380 Photos at Pearson Airport

    Sorry - wouldn't let me in. Something about regulations in Australia or something like that - didn't really make sense but was too tired to question it. Saw two A380s going there but saw five today which was great. Three Qantas and two Singapore.

    To be honest (on a side note) whilst the business seats on the Emirates A380 were great, the service was below average. Well worth the trip to experience the A380 but I wouldn't detour my trip again like I did for this just to get on it.

  5. Thanks Matt Olieman thanked for this post

    Lewis, what did the flight 'fee' like? Was it like any other large airliner, or did it seem different in anyway? The largest Ive flown on was a 767 and an A330 so I wonder if it seems any different from a 'normal' heavy aircraft.

    Re: A380 Photos at Pearson Airport

    Hey guys, new kid here

    Just thought I would share some photos of my experiences on this amazing craft! These pictures were taken on the route, AKL-SYD-DXB-LHR return on the A380.

    Business Class Cabin, ingenious layout!



    Business Class, flat bed, extremely comfy!



    ICE entertainment!



    Mini-bar, storage and wireless remote.



    At the bar with Dane



    The Bar Lounge



    Into the cockpit at DXB, unlike Lewis, I was allowed into the cockpit in SYD, maybe its crew related?



    The First Class Spa



    Insane TV!



    Breaky over the Tasman



    4K



    Emirates Airline.



    Over the aisle




    Just a few pics there of my travels on the 380!

    If you want a more detailed look into the cabins onboard check out these vids I made

    First Class:


    Business Class:


    Economy Class:


    Hope you like them.

    Hi Eric,

    It feels huge, gigantic - especially when you are over the wing. You don't really feel much when you take off, and you hear next to nothing. It's great if it's the plane that takes you to your destination directly, but I wouldn't do a detour to ride on it again.
    Many Thanks,
    Lewis Simmons
