It also seems like there can be NEVER enough people who get anamored about the A380. Don't worry dude, likewise I got into the band Led Zepplin in the past few years and they were around before I was born.



Awe...how cute.

Im still waiting to for the first sheduled serrvice with this thing. I have now saved the money for an F seat rtn on SQ to SIN from LHR. lets hope I have another reason to go to Singapore in 2006 to make it look good.

Friends and family think I'm mad, but I have no regrets on shelling out £450 on concorde in the early 1990's, I would do it all over again.

Keep the A380 news coming.

Something I wonder if anyone else noticed. In the picture below, what's missing??? If you are going to carry so many passengers, don't you need room for carry on luggage?? Take a close look above the center seating. If there are bins there, no one of average height could get to them. Just a little thought...

Erm..... Well I can see bins  yes  - they're those big white things slightly dipping over the centre seats, and presumably there are similar units over the side seats......?  spin 

It IS a mock-up after all - no doubt the final cabin fittings will be "tweaked" by the individual airlines to their own taste anyway.

this is similar to the 777. The only difference is that they will be a push button type that will automatically retract up. The bins will probably be bigger if not, they will still have stowage under the seats as well.

It is indeed quite high also on the 340!

but nevertheless it is discussed and pointed about!

yes probably!
I like that system on the 777!
It only rumbles a bit on T/O (or so I remember in 1995 on the first 777 in commercial use!N777UA from LHR to IAD)

Actually..... I believe that the cabin mockup doesn't have centre bins installed. If you look carefully you can see that the centre PSUs are at about the same height as the top of the outboard bins. I'll have a look for the image I've seen elsewhere that shows this better.

Haha, a nice page overall...but one bit made me laugh in particular:

"Fewer flights which carry more people result in reduced fuel costs and landing fees at airports."

What they havent mentioned is the MILLIONS that only a select number of airports have shelled out to be able to handle this beast in order for it to be able to fly there.

LoL. I don't know about that. In the book "Giant Jetliners" by Guy Norris and Mark Wagner, there's a pic on page 16 of a real cutie sitting in a JT9D. She IMNSHO looks way hot. Big grin
