Emirates now offers the world’s shortest Airbus A380 service. The Gulf carrier upgraded the Boeing 777-200LR aircraft that previously operated flights EK857 and EK858 between Dubai International Airport and Kuwait International Airport to superjumbo aircraft. Lasting one hour and 45 minutes in duration, the flight is the shortest A380 service globally. Emirates offers the route five times daily with both Boeing and Airbus aircraft. The carrier’s double-decker aircraft features 17 private suites in first class and 76 flat-bed seats in business class[^]

So lots of people want to go from Dubai to Kuwait, apparently, lying down!

Have to say, for a 1:45 minute flight, this is overkill isn't it? Surely it takes longer to board and taxi than to fly! Smile | :)



(Oh, and these double decker Airbus planes are incredible, as quiet as a quiet restaurant, spacious, and steady in the air. They are incredible pieces of engineering. )
