    A380 First trip report

    I was invited to fly on the first A380 flight but turned it down.
    But several friends did go out to enjoy this event. Turns out they met Sam Chiu and shared photos.
    Have a look at Sam's trip report.

    If I ever fly a route on the A380, its business class or higher for me.

    Enjoy

    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    No need to be concerned.
    Three great highlights of 2007 thus far:

    I saw the first A380 land in JFK, saw the 787 rollout and our son was born.

    These are awesome times with our son, so just another plane ride can wait.
    He took his first 2 steps last night. Had he done so a week ago, I would have missed it and family is much more important than a 380 ride.

    I flew Concorde as her time was running out and have no worries that we'll ride a 380 before they are retired.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...

    Congrats on the little one's first steps Mario! It's only a matter of time now before watching him becomes a "mobile" job!

    Sam did a nice job (as usual) of giving us a feel for what the experience was like in the Suites. This 'better than First Class' option will likely be very popular among the flashy 'new money' types in the booming Asian economies; kind of sad though that most people will have to endure the economy class which - as we can also see in the pics - still looks like economy class.

    Understandable Mario. Who knows, maybe your son will accompany you on your first A380 ride!

    Very good trip report, felt like I was there with him. If I was there, I would have grabbed those Bose headphone :shock: :lol: 8)
