The aircraft has been receiving a lot of media attention in recent months and its appearance at this year’s airshow will guarantee even more coverage around the world.

I’ve included a couple of photos from the airline’s Airbus A380 flying display on this page – and there’s an entire photo album on my Facebook page. Click here to visit (and don’t forget to like the page for a regular stream of aviation photos, videos and stories).

This figure includes 14 seats in First (located at the front of the main deck), 97 seats in Club World (business class – split between the main deck and upper deck) and 55 seats in World Traveller Plus (premier economy – located in the upper deck). The rest are World Traveller (economy class – situated in both the main and upper deck).

According to a press release, the national carrier’s first double-decker superjumbo will make its debut on the “Red Carpet Route” to Los Angeles, while Hong Kong will be the second destination.
