A380 flights out of LAX

Many travelers prefer to fly on an A380. The size of the aircraft along with other features can make the flight an experience to remember, and often more enjoyable than that available on other aircraft equipment. If one lives near LAX or can get to the Los Angeles (LA) area perhaps by taking a positioning flight to get to LAX, there are then several A380 nonstop destination available. These are covered in this post. Please keep in mind sometimes an airline may swap out equipment, so it is good to check when booking your flight and close to the departure as well to be sure the A380 is scheduled to be used. Flight schedules can and do change, so some flights mentioned on this post may have changed since the time of writing.
