Currently none of the international carriers flying the A380 super jumbo jet stops at Honolulu International Airport nor is the airport's terminal ready to accommodate the jet.

But for the second time a Qantas A380 super jumbo jet made an emergency landing in Honolulu. This morning a flight originally bound for Melbourne, Australia from Los Angeles diverted to Honolulu for unknown medical emergency. Reports indicate the plane would remain overnight due to crew hours.

Back in February of last year another Qantas A380 traveling from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles made an emergency landing also due to a medical emergency. The plane with 330 passengers on board waited about an hour before taking off again to California.

The video below show how massive the plane actually is as it parks at one of gates at Honolulu International.
