Emirates said it will use its first A380 superjumbos to fly to New York, London Heathrow, Sydney and Auckland.

Emirates, the largest Middle-east airline, has ordered 58 of the Airbus A380 planes, which were delayed by about two years due to wiring problems.

It will take delivery of five of the double-decker planes this year, it said. The 489 seat planes will fly to New York on October 1, London Heathrow on December 1, and Sydney-Auckland on February 1, the airline said.
