Two Airbus' and two Boeings

This second-last post from my recent Auckland visit has four large aircraft - two Airbus' and two Boeings. First up the Airbus aircraft.

We start with am Emirates-operated Airbus A380-800. This picture shows quite nicely that there are  thrust reversers on the inboard engines only.

Next up is an Airbus A330-223, B-LNF, which is operated by Hongkong Airlines. This is the second time I have seen this aircraft - the first time was back in September 2011, at Chep Lap Kok [Hong Kong airport]. I really like the livery on these aircraft.

Now on to the Boeings. This first one is a Korean Air-operated Boeing 747-8I, HL7642. I think this is the first of these large Boeings I have photographed.

Last up is a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, operated by Thai Airways International.

Your description of the 787 is a bit harsh😉
