The world's largest airplane is now flying out of the world's busiest airport.
Korean Air's A380 Airbus was greeted with water cannons as it pulled up to the gate for the first time at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
"In this case, bigger really is better," says John Jackson, V.P. of Passenger Marketing and Sales for Korean Air.
The jumbo jet boasts an upper deck exclusively for business class, three bars, and a duty free showcase.
It will be offering flights from Atlanta to Seoul on Sundays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
Matt Stevens, of Kingsport, Tennessee, didn't realize the flight he was about to take to Seoul was aboard the Airbus, and in business class to boot.
"I think I'm going to have fun," he tells WSB's Sandra Parrish. "I might not sleep through this one."
A few modifications had to be made at the airport in order to accommodate the giant aircraft including expanding some taxiways and modifications to gates.
Airport General Manager Louis Miller hopes the A380 is the start of things to come.
"It basically shows that we're going to continue to grow the international market," he says.
