DALLAS-FORT WORTH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT - Qantas Airbus A380 and Emirates’ Airbus A380 made their inaugural flights this week landing at DFW International Airport.

Emirates and Qantas both now employ Airbus 380 jumbo jets with regular service to DFW.

Qantas offers six-day-a-week service from Sydney to DFW, and the Emirates A380 flies into three U.S. markets: DFW Airport, New York and Los Angeles.

The planes offer 489 seats, including 14 first-class and 76 business class on the second floor and 399 economy seats on the first floor.

The first-class passengers can dine, sleep and watch television in their own suites during the flights.

Each of the 14 individual pods has moveable walls, seats that can lay flat, a flat-screen television with more than a thousand channels, a touchscreen that controls the entertainment and orders food and access to an in-flight lounge.

Finally, first-class passengers can refresh in one of two private spas that feature showers and sinks.

Emirates has the world's largest fleet of A380s with 53 and has more than 80 on order from Airbus, according to Hubert Frach, a vice president with Emirates.
