I'm an intermittent reader of posts here, but I just registered and this is my first post, so go easy on me if I missed a topic similar to this in the forums!
I'm planning on studying abroad in Sydney within the next year and being in the Washington D.C area on nearly the exact opposite side of the globe from Sydney, there are so many different ways you can get there, on so many different airlines. I've already basically decided that I'm going to fly business class for the longest leg, and I'd LOVE to be able to take an A380 if possible. I'm not at all opposed to stopping in Dubai, since visiting is on my list , I just don't know what the best route would be (IAD > LAX > SYD; BWI > JFK > DXB > SYD; etc)
Once again, sorry if this isn't something to post here or if its a dumb question!
