So I was using Airbus' model comparison tool (before BCAInfoSys pointed out I could have used the A.net db) to prove to a friend that the A332/A333 had the same wing as the A342/A343 and then decided to look at the statistics for the single isle family. Upon doing so I found an interesting error in the specs for the A320:

That is one short, fat plane at 3.96m/13ft long and 27.5m/90ft wide! hehe...

Here is the link to the comparison tool so you can try it yourself:

It's Airbus' new blended wing concept!  Wink

I'm sure they can just put the A380 tail on it!  Wink

That's a neat feature.

Too bad they do what Progressive Insurance does...
And display competing products as well.

If the Airbus products are indeed "Superior" to everything else in the sky like we've been taught,  Smile Then they should have no issue with pointing out such information....

Bring on the Boeings!
