Emirates’ Airbus A380 service to Los Angeles from its Dubai hub has become the world’s longest A380 flight in operation.
With a published duration of 16 hours and 20 minutes, the A380 service operates daily between the two cities.
The route has been in service since 2008 when a Boeing 777-200LR operated the path.
The 489-seat A380 was deployed on the route due this month due to high demand.
More than 1 million passengers have travelled between Los Angeles and Dubai on Emirates since the service was introduced.
The flight crosses the Russian Federation, North Pole, and Eastern Canada before making it to its West Coast destination.
Emirates was the first airline to place an order for the twin-deck, super fuel-efficient A380 – the largest and most advanced passenger aircraft in the world.
Emirates’ A380 is fully equipped for the lengthy flight including WiFi, 1,500 channels of in-flight entertainment, and gourmet-chef prepared meals served by a highly-trained, multi-lingual cabin crew.
A generously proportioned Economy Class, Business Class with mini-pods, and private suites are available in First Class to make the long flight less tiresome.
Two onboard Shower Spas are now also available for First Class travellers on the Emirates A380.
Emirates offers flights to Dubai from more than 140 destinations around the world.
