Experience the new Qantas A380 before you fly.

It’ll be cool to have an airline other than SQ flying the A380, and it’s especially cool that it’ll be flying to the US, so we finally get a nice chunk of big bird sightings. I’m surprised their setting exact dates this far out, considering how many delays airlines have in general with delivering a new product. I’m crossing my fingers for them, that’s for sure!
