Malaysia Airlines New A380 Plane Video


Malaysia Airlines New A380 Plane Video is the latest update from the much awaited plane that the airline has ever bought. Just released in early March, this A380 video shows the painting process of the Malaysia Airlines livery done at the factory while in the video, you see the plane exiting the hanger and it is still incomplete. Judging from the main picture above, there are still the three lines to be added on to the body of the A380. Anyway, watch the video and you can see the process of painting the words 'Malaysia Airlines' and also the tail fin with the traditional Malaysian 'Wau' logo.

For the record, I have been following the progress of the Malaysia Airlines A380 since June 2011 and even visited the Airbus Factory in Toulouse, France. You can read my earlier article titled Malaysia Airlines New Airbus A380 Plane - Sneak Preview. This article shows the exact plane inside the Airbus factory when I visited. The tail fin had the original red Malaysia Airlines logo back then.

After many months of changes and so on, the plane finally made it's maiden flight from Toulouse to Hamburg to be fitted with the interiors and so on. You can see pictures of the A380 aircraft taking off and landing in this article titled Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380 First Test Flight. From there, it was returned back to be painted and thus this latest video above.

And for the first time in the airline history, a "Chef-on-Call" facility will be available to first class passengers and eventually would extended to business class passengers onboard the A380. 

Luxurious 74" seat pitch, full flat bed seats, USB ports, satellite telephone facility and in-seat laptop charging facilities would also be fitted in the aircraft.
