Emirates - A380 from May 1

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

Emirates - A380 from May 1

Postby yinggeaussie » 31 Jan 2016, 19:41

Emirates are upgrading the daily flight from a B773ER to a A380 from May 1, 2016 according to their website.

"Emirates will up-gauge its service to a two-class A380 service, representing a 44 per cent increase in capacity. Emirates flight EK366 will depart Dubai at 04:35hrs and arrive in Taipei at 16:50hrs the same day. The return flight EK367 will leave Taipei at 23:30hrs, arriving in Dubai at 05:05hrs the next day. Taipei Taoyuan International Airport recently completed enhancements making it compatible with the double-decker aircraft."

No more sardine Economy 3-4-3 fit in the 773 - yes the 380 has 3-4-3 but the cabin is wider. 6.58 vs 5.86m.

There are cheaper tickets available on other airlines, however it might be worth it to fly on the A380. Are there any other airlines flying to Europe from Taiwan using an A380?

None FAIK. Would be fun to try out the 380. They say its smooth and quieter then 747.

Lots of new planes to try for me too. 380, 787, 350 , I've not even flown on the 330.

But I hate flying so there.

Even with a transit in Hong Kong, flying with Etihad to Europe still offers better value:

NT$12,000 cheaper than Emirates in economy to Europe (EY 21500 vs EK 34000 - June, TPE to MXP)
A333 cabin has couple-friendly 2-4-2 seating
With only 8 seats per row the A333 on a per passenger basis is actually more spacious than the 777 or A380
Unlike Emirates, Etihad arrives at its Eurpoean destinations early in the morning.
Shorter transit times at AUH versus DXB.

I like Emirates and Etihad - have flown with them several times because they had cheap tickets, look out for the special offers. Quite impressed with the service. DXB is a bit shit though.

Emirates haven't been decent value from here or HKG back to Europe since 2012.
Nice product, mind, apart from the change-over at Dubai with a dreadful "apron bus to terminal" set-up.
It's raining again here.

A wicked wind whips up the hill, a handful of hopeful words.
