October 13, 2014 was a milestone day for the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport. That's when two airlines - Qantas and Emirates - began services using the Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger aircraft. This double-decked behemoth is capable of taking up to 853 passengers on flights covering 9,800 miles non-stop. Because of the aircraft's size and capacity, numerous infrastructure modifications were needed to maintain the DFW Airport's world-class level of service to the airlines and their passengers.


In their presentation, Coan and Loyd describe how this unique aircraft has impacted DFW and other airports, the planning and implementation occurring at DFW's Terminal D, and current efforts to support DFW Airport's Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program.
