Rare A380 Flight from Dubai Diverted to Bradley

View Comments ()



    This is a rare sight at Bradley.

    Travelers at Bradley International Airport saw something that you don’t often see when an A380 Emirates flight from Dubai was diverted to the local airport.

    The rather large 238-foot long Emirates airplane was heading for JFK, but air traffic to JFK and LaGuardia was grounded because of weather, so the flight was diverted to the local airport.

    The plane is not your average aircraft. It is known for luxurious accommodations, including a shower spa, onboard lounges and private suites.
