[HD video below] Emirates has launched the worlds longest Airbus A380 service with flights between Dubai and Los Angeles.

The flight, crossing the Russian Federation, the North Pole and Eastern Canada, has a published duration of 16 hours 20 minutes.

The Emirates A380 is one of the most comfortable and well designed aircraft flying today. Its generously proportioned Economy Class, exclusive mini-pods in Business Class and Private Suites in First Class are hugely popular with passengers from every corner of the globe.

On the top deck of the aircraft, First Class passengers can freshen up in one of two Onboard Shower Spas, whilst First and Business Class travellers can mix and mingle in the popular Onboard Lounge enjoying a drink and exchanging tales at 40,000 feet.

Passengers in all cabins have access to WiFi, 1,500 channels of inflight entertainment and gourmet-chef prepared meals, served by highly trained, multi-lingual cabin crew.

Generous luggage allowances are available to customers: 30 kilogrammes in Economy Class, 40 Kilogrammes in Business Class and 50 kilogrammes in First Class.

Premium passengers can also enjoy dedicated lounges and chauffeur-drive transfers at many destinations across Emirates network.

The airline started flying to Los Angeles in 2008 with the Boeing 777-200LR. The introduction of the 489-seat A380 service, powered by US made GE GP7200 engines, is a direct response to demand with over one million passengers travelling between Los Angeles and Dubai so far.
