Emirates' First A-380

"We congratulate Airbus for having created a greener, cleaner, quieter, smarter aircraft," said Chief Executive Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum.

Emirates took delivery of its first Airbus A380 and yesterday it was in Hamburg being feted by the airline and vetted by the press.

The aircrew who were selected as hosts for the event were made to stand on the tarmac and pretend to be aeroplanes as they showed off their new uniform.

Press release images of the plane's interior can be seen here and here. This aircraft will be flying the Dubai to New York route.

The image I have included above was shamelessly lifted from Alexander's blog!
