THE LAST A380 DELIVERED TO EMIRATES – Sam Chui
Definitely a bittersweet day. The aircraft market has moved in a different direction, and after 123 deliveries, there will be no more A380s produced. I hope to fly them at least a handful more times over the coming decade.
This might save me retaining MVP Gold 75K status. Unlikely. It’s still a nice second chance, especially if you have Alaska Airlines travel planned in the first third of 2022. The status extension is nice as well.
