Airbus lands in Manchester
September 1st, 2010 by elisa

The largest commercial aircraft, the Airbus A380, landed in Manchester for the first time today. This huge aircraft can carry up to 517 passengers and is split into two ‘decks’, economy on the lower deck and luxury first class on the upper deck.

The aircraft travels between Manchester and Dubai with Emirates airline; passengers will expect to pay around £600 economy and over £3000 first class for a return trip.

First class boasts a huge amount of space, wide-screen TV and personal satellite phone, a ‘no disturb’ button on the reclining leather bed seat and two large shower rooms (a first for this type of service and an impressive engineering feat).

Many people turned up to watch the aircraft land at Manchester Airport, one told the BBC: “It’s fantastic to see it land for the first time. I think it is a monumental occasion.”
