Out with the Old, In with the new

With the new A380 and 24.2 rapidly approaching, I decided to do one last flight on the OG A380 from Zurich 🇨🇭 → Dubai 🇦🇪 with emirates! Every single flight I fly in IF follows the callsign (Airline)403, but for this flight I decided to use a very special callsign… Emirates 380EK Heavy!
