The new Airbus A380 superjumbo jet has completed its first commercial flight.

Here's a look at the airbus which landed in Sydney Thursday morning.
The flight from Singapore took about 7 hours. 455 passengers were onboard. The double decker A380 is now officially the world's biggest commercial jetliner, ending the Boeing 747s almost 40 year reign. When set up in an all economy class configuration, it's capable of carrying 853 passengers compared to 400 with 747s.
