I flew both twice in the last month (and have flown both maybe 50+ times previously) and the A380 beats the 777 hands down.

 

The only way I'd choose the 777 would be in a scenario where the A380 was like BA, with 8 abreast in business whereas the 777 was like Etihad with 4 abreast.

 

Thus, it can depend on the airline and their configuration - check.

Just to add to this.

Songkran trips;

BKK - Heathrow, Thai Air 777

Heathrow - Glasgow - BA A320-232 (I think), business class though (I had miles I could use)

Glasgow - Dubai, Emirates 777

Dubai - BKK, Emirates A380.

 

And the winner is!  Emirates 777.  Easily the most comfortable, with the most legroom.  I expected the A380 to win, but poorer legroom - had 3 seats to myself though, which was nice.

Thai Air 777 - tired plane interior, everything just needed refreshed, OK for comfort though.

The loser, BA, even business class had very poor legroom. 

 

All airside staff were great, ground staff too.  EXCEPT.  Emirates Glasgow check-in.  Combined all the worst aspects of Arab & Scots personalities (I'm a Scot BTW).

 

Oh, and at Glasgow, my carry-on was too heavy (no checked bag, so unable to move things.  Was 10.1Kg, they gave me a small bag to move some stuff into, did that, tried again, different desk, small bag 1.7Kg, not enough moved, OK, I'll just try the main bag before repacking again; 7.0Kg.  WTF.  At one desk 10.1, at another, a combined 8.7.  Someone needs their scales checking!.  :ang2

Hi,

 

The economy ain't great here. Lots of shops closing down. The Chinese and Russian "Oligarchs" are doing fine though. :unsure:

I've booked my next trip but sadly no option of A380 to BKK with Qatar, but I've managed to avoid the less comfortable 787 Nightmareliner and 777 flights...... I'm flying A350 EDI-DOH and A340-600 DOH-BKK

No such luck for me, long haul in a 777 is as good as I can do. Would have loved to have been on an Emirates A380, but just a little too rich for me!
