BREAKING: Emirates brings the A380 To Chicago

In what could be considered a harbinger of good things to come, Emirates looks like they’ll be launching a service of an A380 to Chicago in July.

According to Expert Flyer’s website, it looks like Emirates will be doing a one time flight on July 19th to Chicago using an Airbus A380-800 and doing the return flight on July the 20th.

I also confirmed this on Alaska’s website.  Looks like there is Economy class award space.

Could this be a sign that The A380 is coming for good to Chicago?  Per Chicago Business, a permit was pulled to begin constructing the gate for the jumbo jet back in February, and should be ready soon.

For one, I’m extremely excited to see another A380 come to the USA, and hopefully this will provide more first class and business class booking options for everyone.

Is anyone else excited to see the A380 coming to Chicago?
