I am at Balad Air Base (JBB) in Iraq, which is about 50 miles north of Baghdad. I always see a lot of wide bodies, mostly Emirates 777s flying north from DXB. I have recently noticed a few A380s 2 around 09:30-10:00 and one around 1530 local time. I looked on Orbitz and see that the 2 in the AM are DXB-MAN and DXB-CDG and the PM is DXB-LHR. These have to be the flights as they leave about 2.5 hrs prior to seeing them, which is correct flying time, give or take?
My question is, are there any other 380 flights with other airlines or Emirates that I might look out for, or is this it? Also, if you have done one of these flights, what FL are you cruising at, because it looks on the low end, or that thing is just that BIG?? I must say, it is pretty cool to see those 380s with the red Emirates sign on the bottom every day. It is 15:12 now, so I will be taking a break here in 15 mins
