Today Air France’s big new A380 touched down at SFO for the first time. I was very excited to get special access to the runways and tarmac to shoot this two-minute video.
Check out how close we were to this leviathan as it gracefully touched down. And watch the special water cannon welcome salute from the SFO fire department.
I did not have the chance to see the interior of this big bird, but you can check out interior photos of all three classes here.
Looking out over the summer, roundtrip coach fares between San Francisco and Paris are running in the $1100 to $1500 range. Business class roundtrip summer sale fares are in the $3000 range– not bad compared to standard business class fares which normally runs closer to the $6K-$8K mark.
