Comparing airlines' Airbus A380s
British Airways received its first Airbus A380, the world's largest commercial passenger aircraft, in July and began flying it between LAX and Heathrow on Sept. 24. Now ten airlines operate the superjumbo jet, including Thai Airways, Malaysia Airlines, Korean Air, Lufthansa, Air France, Emirates, Qantas Airways, China Southern and Singapore Airlines. Here's a look at how these airlines have equipped their A380s.

Unlike Singapore Airlines, the cabins in Qantass A380s are not fully enclosed, though privacy can be maintained with adjustable window shades. The seats in each cabin convert to fully flat beds 83.5-inches long and 29 inches wide. Each cabin has a 17-inch wide-screen monitor, storage unit and fold-out table.
