Ah, the old days, when I was a boy! Looking at those old liveries and 747s made me think of those days, back when I used to hate the A380 for being ugly and then feeling sad that China Southern began operating them LAX-CAN the next year in 2011. Good report though.

I enjoyed travelling on the A380 for the quiet cabin, spacious feel. Thanks.
