For a Truly Unique Travel Experience, Hitch a Ride on the Airbus A380

Think of the Airbus A380 aircraft as a luxury limo bus with wings. Not only is it the largest commercial airplane in the world, its revolutionary double-deck design is a marvel to behold both from an exterior and interior prospective.

If you’ve never had the pleasure of flying on an A380, you don’t know what you’re missing. The experience is incredible, and that’s precisely the reason why we’d like to highlight all of the U.S. routes that fly the A380 on a daily basis.

Tell Me More About the A380 Experience

We could burn a thousand words on what it’s like to be inside the cabin of an A380 aircraft, but then we wouldn’t have the time to talk about anything else today. So, rather than describe the experience using poignant literary prose, we thought it’d be cool to share the following video…

Pretty dope, right? Keep in mind that aircraft cabins are often customized and/or branded to meet a buyer’s requirements, but as far as the overall look and feel goes, the video above nails it.

U.S. Routes that Fly the A380

There are eight U.S. airports that service the A380. They are…

1. San Francisco (SFO) – Three Destinations 2. Los Angeles (LAX) – Nine Destinations 3. Dallas (DFW) – Two Destinations 4. Houston (IAH) – Two Destinations 5. Atlanta (ATL) – One Destination 6. Miami (MIA) – Three Destinations 7. Washington, DC (IAD) – One Destination 8. New York (JFK) – Six Destinations

The A380 also flies between Toronto and Dubai, so keep that in mind if you live in the Northeast and are looking to make that trip.

Where You Can Go

We’ve come to the bulk of our article, so bear with us. This section will be made up of eight mini sections, each representing one of the airports listed above.

San Francisco: If you want to hop on the A380 out of San Francisco, you’ll need to travel to Frankfurt, Dubai or London.

Los Angeles: LAX is one of the busiest international airports in the country, and if you want to catch a ride on an A380, you have nine destinations to choose from. For example, you can head to Paris to enjoy a little culture and relaxation, but if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, consider traveling to London, Dubai, Guangzhou, Seoul, Tokyo, Sydney, Melbourne or Frankfurt.

Washington, DC: If you live in the northeast, your best chance to land a spot on an A380 flight would be in New York at JFK airport (more on that in just a second). JFK, however, isn’t the ideal choice for every Northeastern traveler, so it might benefit you to know that you can get a seat on an A380 aircraft out of IAD airport, but only if you plan to visit London.

New York: The airport named after John Fitzgerald Kennedy offers travelers six daily routes that fly the A380. If you live in the Northeast, want to fly on the A380 and are interested in visiting Paris, Frankfurt, Dubai, Seoul, Milan or Abu Dhabi, you can accomplish that in New York with daily trips to each destination.
