50. Let it sink in for a moment.
And it will go to 90 in less than 3 years (!). Can we say "singlehandedly saving the A380 program" here?
It's also the airline that has the most B777s (almost at 50 too). Pretty incredible.
I've flown the EK A380 a number of times, most of them between LHR and DXB, but the most memorable was when I got to the inaugural A380 flight between NRT and DXB (it has been replaced with B777s since then).
Not only did they upgrade me in First (Business had been mostly taken by Emirates staff), allowing me access to the Spa (the showers at the front!) for the first time, but I most notably got a tour of the plane by the (always great) attendants with whom I spent the 9+ hours talking with.
Here's to you, Emirates. Godspeed.
