Hi a.nutters,

Currently a few days into a trip and had some time online so decided to upload some pics I snapped and do up a TR. Hope you enjoy.

Route: JFK - DXB
Flight: EK 202
Aircraft: A380
Date: 11-10-2010
Departure: STD 11:30PM, delayed 45 mins, baggage removed due to missing pax
Arrival: STA 8:30PM (+1), early 45 mins, strong winds

My mom flew into NYC from LA and I from Boston, where we met up with my brother and sister-in-law for a few days before heading out to India. We were flying Emirates, who sent a car to pick us up at my brother's place in the city a few hrs before our flight, which was a nice added service. We got to the airport around 8:00 and checked in, where I noticed a large number of passengers on our flight were continuing like me onto point in South Asia. We hit up the lounge and boarded a little after 10:45.

Jetway @JFK. The A380 was reintroduced on the DXB-JFK-DXB route several days before my flight, which I was excited to find out about since I'd wanted to try out the A380. A jetway straight to the a/c from the biz/first lounge at JFK was recently introduced as well, making for real smooth boarding

We boarded and were greeted by EK f/as. I love the uniforms and the international presence among them- I think on our flight alone, there were about 15 languages spoken between them!

My seat, 21B. All in all...AWESOME. Reclined to nearly flat, crazy good legroom (keep in mind I'm only 5'7'' =)), nice sized TV w/ remote, mini "fridge" next to you w/ drinks etc, airplane-seat-turned-massage-chair, etc.

Remote control, fridge, cool little storage area

The massage options were siiiiiick

Almost bedtime. The f/as bring out the "mattresses" and lay them on your seat, which is awesome

Upper deck bar. Pretty sweet...had a great selection of stuff. Throughout the flight there was I'd say at least one "customer" here at any given time, although a couple times I saw 4-6 which was fun; usually staffed by one f/a when drinks were being ordered. I think a good addition would be some sort of a dark-colored rug to make the area a bit more comfy (although this might be problematic as the food/drink carts pass thru here to/from the galley so the floor may need to be free of any obstructions?...don't know). Note the sitting area.

Opposite the bar and before the lavatories, there's this screen and a selection of goodies that was frequently replenished.

The IFE was awesome. Great selection of movies (very current ones), TV shows, documentaries, music, flight status, cameras, shopping, games, etc. Hard to get bored

There were several camera views available. This is of us looking forward, approaching DXB

Spent my couple hrs in DXB browsing the shops. Loved the dates here, probably the best I've ever tasted.

Next up will be a TR on my return to the US at the end of the month. If I'm able to, I'll also try to do one up for my internal flights here: MAA-DEL on 9W, DEL-VNS-HJR-VNS-DEL on IT, and DEL-BOM on 9W.

Thanks for reading!

It says something to effect of "I have no idea what this t-shirt says" in Icelandic =)

So good to see the 380 back at JFK! Was getting sick of seeing the 77W when I would go into work. Looks like I'll have to take advantage of our pass agreements with EK!

Yup, I was real happy about it since my return to the states is DXB-LAX on one of EK's triple 7s, so that was my only 380 opp!

Thanks everyone for the responses!
