Airbus A380


The Airbus A380 is the largest airliner ever made, with a carrying capability of up to 853 passengers. Being 50% wider than the Boeing 747, it’s closest competitor, the Airbus has truly surpassed all previous achievements of plane construction and interior design.

The entire upper-deck is dedicated for premium passengers. All seats can be transformed into full-sized beds (190 cm in length) with a pillow and a mattress. Each passenger has his own mini-bar and a full-sized, bartender-serviced bar is available at the rear of the plane. And on top of all, there are two shower cabins available during flight.

Some of the other features:

  • In front of each passenger there is a 17-inch touch screen, electric plug, 2 USB ports (for USB-charging or viewing photos) and a remote-control combined with a satellite phone
  • Each seat has it’s own wireless control device regulating the backrest angle, lighting level and massage-modes of the chair
  • Several external video-cameras are available for viewing
  • 2 additional pilots and 1 extra bathhouse attendant are additionally employed for 14-hour long flights, making it a total of 30 crew members
  • Engine noise can surprisingly be heard very faintly. The only thing interrupting the silence is the ventilation system on the ceiling

And now for some numbers….any guesses what a return flight would cost? Well…a Bangkok-Dubai destination with Emirates in a A380 is $2500 for economy and $4000 for first class.

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
