Thanks everyone, well we went for it and booked the cheaper seats on the 777 and 2nd leg A330. Lucky we did, as just looked again and the price has gone up £700 now so same as the 380 flight. Must have got the last cheap seats! Got a 17hr layover so will book the transit hotel and take a swim, may even do one of the free tours if we have the energy!
To add, when I booked, there were no seats showing all together, so I phoned them up, and she sorted it all out straight away and get 4 seats together. So have to say, their customer service from my experience so far has been very good.

Which airline flies both legs (Heathrow to Melbourne) in A380?
I recall reading it somewhere, that it is starting soon, or in service.

Going back in March and have bit the bullet and booked business class with emirates, at 6' 4 I am getting to old to be folded in half for 24 hrs , have flown all over the world over the years and economy is economy although I must admit flying the 380 has been the best experience.
The free chauffeur pick up and drop off at both ends was really appreciated too.
Enjoy your flights.
Thanks Mike , Yes we have booked the chauffeur puck up and drop off's so looking forward to that we're on the 380 all the way
I have to say, we are talking about indulging in business class for our trip back to the UK next year.... Either that or economy with a long layover and a luxury hotel stop in Hong Kong or Singapore enroute..both ways!
Australia grabs you, and it won't let go!
I flew with Qatar as they used 777x9. Over the course of our booking each and every one was replaced with a 777x10. These planes are horrible. Like the 787 there really isn't enough room. You're bumping elbows with the person next to you, and I had a real problem with the woman next to me.
The a380 on the other hand was lovely. New and spacious. But be warned, I have heard they are bringing in a a380x11.
My flights in April are with Emirates are all on a380x10 and they were all cheap.
Last time I went by myself was in Nov, and I had 777x10 on Emirates, but I had four seats to myself. That was lovely. Slept the whole way. I'd recommend that if you can. But you constantly need to check your seats as they are forever putting someone next to you.
