Alone, unafraid, last week Emirates’ inaugural A380 service on its daily Dubai – Brisbane – Auckland route winged its way south-east. The service becomes Brisbane’s first and only scheduled A380 service increasing capacity on the route by approximately¬†193,000 seats per annum. Meanwhile, across the pond, Auckland is now the only airport outside Dubai to host more than one Emirates’ A380 on the ground simultaneously.
