Emirates Airline’s Google ‘Street View’ allows anyone on the Web to take a virtual tour of all the suites, including the on board lounges and spas. You can even observe the pilot’s view from the cockpit – something that even First Class passengers cannot enjoy.
The AirBus A380 has a wingspan of 79.8 metres and passenger capacity of 517 people, it can cover 15,000 kilometres in a single journey, and is 20 percent more fuel efficient than its only competitor, the Boeing Dreamliner.
