Airline With The Best A380 Product

Tue Oct 12, 2010 11:52 pm

So, I've been thinking which airline has the best A380 product out there. Currently, SQ, EK, QF, AF and LH operates these beasts around. IMO, without out a doubt, SQ has probably the classiest one. However, I also like LH for it's simplicity, EK is as usual EK-Style, QF's is okay while AF has the most unimaginative one. I still am puzzled why the heck they made that Museum/Gallery thing in their A380, I mean, that space could be a bar or something, or a common seating area...

My ranking:

1. Singapore Airlines
2. Lufthansa
3. Emirates
4. Qantas
5. Air France

On an another note, what do you think is the best looking A380 out there? I know some of you think the A380 is one ugly whale but based on the schemes, which scheme best fits the A380? IMO, i gotta say QF. It works perfectly.
It's a cultural thing.

Best First Class: SQ & LH (Suites on SQ! LH First Class looks wonderful with the simple design)
Best Business Class: SQ & EK (I love EK's staggered seating concept and in-seat bar!)
Best Premium Economy: QF (they are the only operator which has Prem eco if I'm not mistaken)
Best Economy Class: SQ
One day I will fly around the world!

Best Suite: SQ (the only one offering "R" class).
Best First: EK
Best business: SQ and QF
Best Premium Economy: QF (and what a premium economy it is, not simply just Y seats with more space)
Best Economy: SQ

QF has the best colour scheme of all, Emirates overall has the onboard experience in the First that is nicest. EK is very very flashy, SQ and QF more conservative and traditional.

In contrast to all other operators, SQ doesn't offer any camera views. The tail camera view is simply awesome, enjoyed that a lot on my AF, EK and LH flights. If I take Y Class seating comfort and all IFE options into consideration, my personal favorite is EK's A380.
