Qantas A380 super jumbo jet arrives at D/FW for first time

The world’s largest commercial aircraft; Airbus A380 arrived the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport for the first time today, 29th September, 2014. The aircraft would now fly the longest route with the launch of the non-stop Qantas flights between Sydney, Australia and Dallas. The airline this week announced that the expansive planes have taken over the nearly 16-hour route from the Boeing 747, operating six return services per week. The aircraft switch means that first class is now available for the first time on the route, popular with business travellers.  The second longest flight routes by distance after Sydney to Dallas is the Johannesburg to Atlanta at 13,582km route operated by Delta Airlines, followed by Emirates’ Dubai to Los Angeles route at 13,420km.
