Emirates to go all-A380 to London

[ August 6, 2015   //   ]

Emirates flights to London will become an all-A380 operation from 1 January 2016 when it replaces the Boeing 777-300ER with the superjumbo. The five daily flights to Heathrow are already operated by the A380. While good news for passengers, the move could reduce cargo capacity as the A380’s payload is inferior to the 777-300.

Other UK routes will continue to be operated by 777s.
