The Airbus A380 superjumbo is flown on several flight routes to and from the USA. This page is focused on listing such flight routings to make it easier for you to find an a380 flight and experience the added space it offers. Please keep in mind that routes do change, and airlines keep receiving deliveries of new A380s and adding and subtracting flight routes, and they sometimes change equipment (types of airplane) used on particular routes, so this page may have inaccuracies. Still, I hope you find it useful for finding A380 routes into and out of the USA.
Only a few airports in the US currently have a380 flights. They are: Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), New York (JFK), San Francisco (SFO), and Washington DC (IAD).
From Los Angeles you can go to Melbourne, Paris, Seoul, Singapore, and Sydney on a A380. October 2012 update: there is now also a direct flight on an A380 from Los Angeles to Guangzhou, China (CAN) operated by China Southern Airlines.
From Miami you can go to Frankfurt on a A380. You can search for an A380 Miami flight using the flight search box on the right of this page.
From New York you can go to Dubai, Frankfurt, Paris, and Seoul on a A380.
From San Francisco you can go to Frankfurt and Paris on a A380 SFO flight.
From Washington DC you can go to Paris on a A380.
What airlines fly the A380? Here are the A380 airlines that have Airbus a380 routes as of the time of writing of this post: Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qantas, Air France, Lufthansa, Korean Air, and China Southern Airlines. Let’s look at some of these airlines’ routes in and out of the states (USA). Please note that carriers sometimes have multiple nonstop flights between city pairs, typically departing at different times. Not all of those flights might use an A380 aircraft. I tried to indicate which flights are A380 routes by listing a time.
Air France A380: flights from JRK to CDG (New York to Paris). LAX to CDG (Los Angeles to Paris, 4pm flight). IAD to CDG (Washington DC to Paris, 4:40pm).
Emirates: flights from JFK to DXB (New York to Dubai, 11pm flight).
Korean Air A380: flights from LAX to ICN (Los Angeles to Seoul). JFK to ICN (New York to Seoul).
Lufthansa: flights from JFK to FRA (New York to Frankfurt, 3:55pm). MIA to FRA (Miami to Frankfurt). SFO to FRA (San Francisco to Frankfurt).
Qantas: flights from LAX to SYD (Los Angeles to Sydney, 10:10pm). LAX to MEL (Los Angeles to Melbourne).
Singapore Airlines A380 routes: flights from LAX to SIN (Los Angeles to Singapore, with a stop in Tokyo NRT). JFK to FRA (New York to Frankfurt).
Comparing the Airbus A380 vs 747: The A380 has lots more floor space and higher ceilings. Looking at a 747 versus A380 airbus aircraft, the a380 is typically considered to have more comfortable air pressure and is quieter too.
Outside the US between international airport pairs there are many other A380 routes to try. So another way to get to travel on a superjumbo aircraft is to fly to one of these other cities on a typical aircraft and connect to a Airbus a380 flight. Still, it’s very convenient to board the A380 domestically, and I hope this page has helped you find such domestic originating a380 flights. Have you explored the rest of the website? It has lots of other useful flight routing information for travelers.Search terms for this article include
