Emirates has just announced a deal to purchase 40 Airbus A330-900neos and 30 Airbus A350-900 which will be delivered between 2021 and 2024 and this almost certainly signals the end of the road for the Airbus A380.

You can now explore the 3 cabins inside of an Emirates Airbus A380 on Emirates.com courtesy of "web virtual reality (VR) technology". As things stand the aircraft on view is home to the older style First Class cabin but Emirates says that the technology will soon include all configurations of the A380 and its Boeing 777 aircraft.
Clearly I'm not as clever or as business-savvy as Tim Clark (the president of Emirates) or I would be a multimillionaire and flying around the world without wondering if I'm crediting my trips to the right loyalty program or if I'm using my miles wisely.....but I still know a bad idea when I hear one.
