How to search specific aircraft in a airline
When I intend to redeem award ticket in a airline with specific aircraft, ex: Where Etihad A380-800 fly to/from, or Where Cathay 777-300ER (77H) fly to/from, I always have hard time, because I search it by selecting one destination at a time.
Is there a better/efficient way to search it? any website?
I assume you are using Google Flights which is very good for this kind of thing. In case you need differentiation between a 772 and a 77W, compare the seat maps on Seatguru noting things like whether there are 9 or 10 seats per row in Y, how many rows of Business, etc and compare that to the map on the airline’s website.
So all the EY A380s fly from AUH and all the CX 77Ws fly from HKG :).
Now the hard part of figuring out where they fly to, most airlines don’t let you search by a/c type, I would use larger cities for larger aircraft like JFK and LHR
I used to go by this website but it hasn’t been updated since October… [URL]http://www.routesonline.com/news/38/airlineroute/250396/airbus-a350a380-boeing-747-8i787-cseries-currentfuture-routes/[/URL]
Otherwise, there really isnt an easy way. Airbus has a special A380 website – [URL]https://www.iflya380.com/[/URL]
