Dubaians who fancy swapping the shores of the UAE for those of the USA can now do so on a direct A380 flight with local carrier Emirates. The airline’s new daily route to LA is the longest A380 service anywhere in the world. During a lengthy flight time of 16 hours and 20 minutes, passengers on the double decker cross the Russian Federation, the North Pole (wave to Santa!) and eastern Canada. Visit the carrier’s website (www.emirates.com) for flight prices.
