Qatar Airways has launched Airbus A380 flights to Sydney, raising its present daily capacity by 44%.  

Qatar’s Boeing 777-300 aircraft launched the route on March 1 2016 and has now upped capacity with the A380 aircraft.
The aircraft’s 517-seat capacity is spread across twin decks in a tri-class configuration of eight seats in First Class, 48 seats in Business Class and 461 in Economy Class. The route serves passengers travelling from Sydney to London and Paris.

The First Class Cabin on the A380 features ultra-wide seats, which automatically recline into a flat bed, two-passenger table extension dining, sleeper suits, flight slippers and amenities from Giorgio Armani.

Economy Class passengers benefit with the added spaciousness of the A380, with higher ceilings on the main deck, a wider seat configuration and design to offer more legroom plus contoured headrests.
