This former Singapore Airlines aircraft, now operated by Hi Fly of Portugal, is available on a wet-lease basis.
Airbus will produce the last new A380 in 2021.
The A380's utility is in providing capacity for network airlines on trunk routes between hub airports. Here British Airways’ G-XLEG (msn 161) departs Heathrow.
Asiana operates just six A380s.
All Nippon Airways is to become the 15th airline to operate the A380. It will start flying the type from Tokyo-Narita to Honolulu on May 24, 2019. The carrier will receive three examples, each wearing a customised example of a distinctive design called 'Flying Honu' that depicts the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, also known as the Honu.
Emirates operates more A380s than any other customer, including A6-EOK (msn 184) seen on pushback from the carrier's hub in Dubai.
Bombardier markets the Global 7500 as the only dedicated business jet on the market today with four individual cabin zones.
The Bombardier Global 7500 flight deck is based on that of the company's Global 6000 business jet and C-series (since rebranded as the Airbus).
The Global 7500 is fitted with Bombardier's Vision avionics system, based on Collins Aerospace's Rockwell Fusion system, featuring four large colour displays, head-up display, enhanced vision system, and synthetic vision system.
The major difference between the Global 7500 flight deck and the company’s Global 6000 business jet is the use of sidestick controllers for the fly by wire flight control system. The controllers are based on those fitted to the C Series (Airbus A220) airliner.
