A380 - superjumbo lands in Sydney

Today was a significant date in aviation history.

The first commercial flight of the Airbus A380 superjumbo, a Singapore Airlines flight aptly coded SQ380 landed in Sydney today in its first inaugural (maiden?) flight from Singapore.

All seats were sold by auction with the proceeds going to charity.

Singapore Airline's private cabin class will replace first class on the A380. The price of a suite is estimated to be about $A12,564 on the Singapore-Sydney route.
Beyond First Class

The double suites class seats converted into a doublebed inside the Singapore Airlines superjumbo Airbus A380.

perhaps it should be nicknamed the Blimp

Airport workers crowd around the superjumbo after its arrival at Sydney Airport.

It finally rained today and I got to use my umbrella after work. It was just a light sprinkle in the end, until later tonight.
