More than 13,000 people – the equivalent of 25 full flights – visited Emirates Airline’s Airbus A380 aircraft during the Berlin Air Show over the last five days, the carrier said. “The line of visitors grew to over 155 metres as people waited for their turn to tour the aircraft. This was Emirates 48th A380, delivered directly from Airbus at Hamburg Finkenwerder to the show site,” Emirates said.

The aircraft includes private suites and shower spas in first class.

Emirates Airline and Etihad Airways have both recently announced revamped premium travel cabins as the battle between Arabian Gulf carriers to innovate new concepts in luxury air travel heats up.

Only weeks after Etihad Airways announced its premium travel experience – which features private suites, apartments and business studios on its aircraft – Emirates Airline last week said it would match that by introducing a “bedroom concept”.
