Emirates A380 from Manchester

Just had an email from Manchester Airport saying Emirates will be flying the A380 twice a day to Abu Dhabi. This means the Jet/ Emirates to Goa via Abu Dhabi should use an A380 now on the Emirates leg. Hope they have a few special offers for next season. Jet are only taking bookings up to 1st February , so I have another 3 weeks to wait for our dates to become available. Checked price in January and it's around £750, been around £500 at times this season. Fingers crossed for a sale.

Emirates fly into Dubai, but they do have shuttle flights between Dubai and Abu Dhabi (Etihad have shuttle coaches between Abu Dhabi and Dubai - it can't be much more than about 2 hours along that huge highway anyway). Maybe they are entering into a partnership with Etihad to pay back that huge bailout the Abu Dhabi rulers put the way of Dubai!

Travelled on the Emirates A380 last Easter on three of the four flights to/from Bangkok. Really comfortable and spacious seating arrangement in economy class too. Travelling with Qatar on the same route in the summer, also on the A380, but not expecting quite the standards of Emirates.

My mistake . I was so excited about a go on an A380 I got my airlines mixed up. Wishful thinking... : ) It's Etihad I was hoping would have the A380 's . Never mind.
