Geoffm: Good idea but I am sure the Boeingers will always add "White" if elephant is part of the name 767-332ER: Is not the 747 a double decker? Perhaps also the A330 and other aircraft that have galleys or toilets on the lower deck. Suggestion would therefore not be exclusive to A380. Azjetgeek: A possibility but perhaps more a nautical term? Sayem55: Great idea but somehow does not fit an European airliner Levent: Megaliner is perhaps too nautical?
My suggestion "Whopper" but BurgerKing might not be too happy, so perhaps Whopper Jet After all a Jumbo could be a Jumbo Hot Dog or Jumbo Coke.
Any more suggestions?

I tend to like Whale for the A380's nickname. It's huge fusulage is bigger than almost all whales, it is a short name that says it all. If you ever get to see whales in open waters, you know they are great creatures that are truly graceful in the water. Other possible nicknames: "Big Bus", "Big Bird" (like the Sesame Street character).

The 747 is a double-decker but of course, not a true one, because it does not occupy the full lenght of the a/c. The lower galleys on L10's, 747s and 777s well, those wouldn't classify due to the inability to have passengers there, so I'm sticking to the term "Double-decker" because of the accuracy in which the A380 portrays it.
Regards and sorry you didn't like it...
Twinjets...if one fails, work the other one twice as hard!!!
