 The airlines A380 R offers luxurious first-class suite cabin experience for its passengers with six suites. The Lufthansa, the other airline, which operates the A 380 in India along with the Singapore Airlines and Emirates, will be operating the A350-900 when it introduces the Bengaluru-Munich route next year.
