kung masarap lumipad eh hintayin nyo mismo ang hirap na ilapag ang isang kagaya nito.

An A380, the world’s largest aircraft, touched down at London’s Heathrow Airport Tuesday afternoon, completing the plane’s first-ever commercial flight to Europe.

Singapore Airlines Flight SQ308 touched down at 2:51 p.m. (1451GMT), about 15 minutes ahead of schedule. There were 449 passengers on board.

Singapore Airlines hosted a send-off event for passengers at the country’s Changi Airport to commemorate the double-decker plane’s European commercial debut. Passengers took pictures and helped themselves to breakfast before boarding.

“I booked an extra ticket just for this experience,” said Christian Ernst, 25, of Germany, who made a special stopover in Singapore on his way from South Korea to Frankfurt. “I’m very excited to be on the first flight of the A380 to Europe.”

The A380, as tall as a seven-story building, can seat more than 800 passengers in an all-economy class configuration. Singapore Airlines has opted for 471 seats in three classes — 12 Singapore Airlines suites, 60 business class and 399 economy class seats.

Each luxury suite is equipped with sliding doors, a 58-centimeter (23-inch) LCD TV, a full bed and a leather seat. Two of the suites can be joined to provide double beds.

Powered by four Rolls Royce Trent 900 engines, the A380 ends the nearly 37-year reign of the U.S.-made Boeing 747 jumbo jet as the world’s most spacious passenger plane. The 747 jumbo jet generally carries about 400 passengers.
