Emirates is upgrading a second daily Sydney-Dubai flight to the Airbus A380 superjumbo from 1 June, with markedly improved business class and economy seats on board.
Together with Qantas' daily A380 flight under the Red Roo's alliance with Emirates, that'll be three superjumbos winging their way westwards every day.
The upgraded flights are EK415 (which is the 2130 departure from Sydney) and the 0600 EK414 Dubai-Sydney service.
In addition to the quieter cabins on board the A380 and a lower cabin altitude, you'll also find specific benefits in first, business and economy classes.
First class will remain the swanky Emirates suite, but you'll also have the chance to take a shower at 30,000 feet.
Business class passengers will see an improvement from the old Boeing 777's angled lie-flat seat to a fully flat bed with direct aisle access.
And there's a stand-up bar at the back of business class upstairs too.
In economy, you'll find over an inch of extra elbow room on the A380 compared with the 777. That's well worth it on the long flight to Dubai.
