Frankie: I’ve been on the crew of several inaugural A380 flights, including from Singapore to Sydney in 2007 and Singapore to Tokyo in 2008. The best words to sum up these experiences are: excitement and pride. The passengers were wowed from check-in to arrival with special events, giveaways, champagne and food both at the gate and inflight. A lot of them posted their journey on social media. Curious customers from other classes requested to visit our Suites, so I would conduct tours after our Suites passengers disembarked. I enjoyed seeing their astonished facial expressions!
Bonnie: My first experience as an A380 flight attendant also was the inaugural flight from Singapore to Sydney in 2007. I was super excited to be a part of this historic occasion, although I was nervous since it marked my first time working on the team of this aircraft. It was a very special flight for me because the customers were so excited about it.
Susanne: I can simply say that I am proud to be an A380 flight attendant because it’s such an amazing airplane. Everyone I know admires that I fly on it on a regular basis. It never gets old greeting passengers as they board the airplane and seeing their reaction: “Wow, is this really a double-decker airplane? How does it get off the ground?! Can I look upstairs?” They are always so in awe of the magnitude.
