In my previous post, about our world largest passenger aircraft, a sneak peek into the inside of A380 photo's of from from the internet which is of cause these photo's does not belongs to me, thank you to the owners of photos posted in my blog. Anyway other then talking about inside of A380, I have also mentioned about the next country to be a proud owners of this largest, state of the art passenger aircraft....yes....yes, our country Malaysia will be the next proud owner of A380, which makes us Malaysians to be the eighth in the world to be part of the A380 owners club...
The first Airbus A380 for Malaysia Airlines successfully completed its maiden flight on 20th October after completion of the final assembly and system tests in Toulouse, France.
After a successful flight of five hours, the aircraft returned to Toulouse to be prepared for its next journey to the Airbus facilities in Hamburg, Germany for cabin installation and painting. Powered by four Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines, the aircraft is the first of six A380s ordered by Malaysia Airlines, scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2012
This is Malaysia's first A380 just touched down in Hamburg Germany for the cabin installation and the final body painting.
Carriers purchased the A380 is given the opportunity to designed their own cabin, designs the suits their requirements, designs their own seating configurations, in flight first class lounge, private dining seats for their first class or business class passenger.just imagine passenger having to be able to have a private dining area while flying for long hours to their destination. this is truly a class of it own. Airbus has made it possible for world carriers to fly proud with comfort and luxury at a newer level.
I think This photo's is showing us Malaysia's MH A380 is entering the Hangar for the cabin assembly and then proceed towards the final body painting.
This is how Malaysia Airlines going to look like once it is fully completed. photo above show the Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines used for Airbus A380.
Now the interesting part, while I was on board of MAS MH2121 flight to Tawau at 07:20am, reading the in flight magazine is a usual thing to do. on the 2nd page of the magazine there is this section mentioned about the A380, which is schedule to arrived at KLIA some time this Julai 2012.
Our first A380 flight MH002 will also be making her first international non-stop direct flight to London Heathrow (LHR), and will be a 3 flights a week Monday, Thursday and Saturday, while return flight via flight MH003 every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
Since Airbus is giving their clients to design their very own A380 interior cabin, this brings us to question how will our MAS team design our National proud aircraft? Imagine bringing our Malaysian Hospitality inside A380 around the world.
According to the MAS Going Places in flight magazine, this is how the seating configuration going to be look like according to classes.
Will have a total of 8 seat in front of the main deck, and this is going to be 1-2-1 seating configuration.
Business class on the other hand will be located in the upper deck will have 9 rows of seats with 2-2-2 configuration.
Since A380 will be flying a direct to her destination without any stop over, comfortability will be a concern not only for First and Business class, passenger in the economy class will also experience the comfort on board of Malaysia Airline A380.
So now that we know how the seating configurations are, next would be to see how our new Cabin design looks like, and this will only be revealed once MH002 starts its first international flights or maybe once Malaysia MH A380 first touched down in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA).
