qatar-a380Qatar Airways launches Airbus A380 flights to USA, starting with the daily non-stop flights to Atlanta.

Operated in a tri-class configuration, the upper deck offers eight seats in First Class, 48 in Business Class and a lounge for premium passengers, and 461 Economy Class seats spread across both decks.

The A380 service to Atlanta will be the first time the World’s Best Airline brings its A380 product to the United States.

Qatar Airways currently operates six Airbus A380s in its fleet, which are regularly scheduled to London (LHR), Paris (CDG) and Bangkok (BKK). Qatar Airways originally ordered 13 Airbus A380s, with seven to be delivered.

The airline has selected Atlanta as its first United States route to receive the superjumbo to celebrate the launch of its tenth new destination to the USA. There are presently no other scheduled A380 services by the carrier to other points on its Americas footprint.
