There are 12 of these incredible suites in the first class portion of the airplane, each including a full-sized lie-flat bed. The suites in the center of the airplane join, giving your traveling associate along with you a double first class suite at a cost that will make an adequate down payment on a first dwelling in the states.

A daily service out of Auckland is running. For the very first time travellers can go from Auckland to Europe aboard an A380 with only one stop on the way the launching of the service yesterday means.
