Its been a decade since the Airbus flagship performed its maiden flight. April 2005 the huge A-380 took to the sky as a true game-changer for travelers with its space and comfort as well as generating revenue for operators. Thirteen airlines now fly the double-deck A380. Its been estimated that one is either taking off or landing somewhere in the world every four minutes, on average. Emriates alone flies 59 of them.
