Hi guys, have a look at these great pictures:







Photos taken from the Airbus photo databank, copyright Airbus.

Doesn't it look fantastic?

Hmmm, if you look at todays First Class products, such a layout could actually become reality on the A3XX.

What do you all think? I can't wait to have my first flight on Singapore's A3XX.

Best regards

P.S. All Airbus haters, please keep this thread clean...don't show your jealousy.

If you cannot cut and paste the pictures (which I think Johan doesn't allow...), or provide a link to a non-password-protected hosting location, we cannot see these pics.

i am an airbus fan and i like what i see, BUT, those are first class seats. If airlines wanted to they could have those same seats these days and up the price even more. If those seats become cheaper with the A3XX, then i will be happy. until then, i would like to see some pics of the buisness and first class.

also, i hope those seats dont get made because those arm rests look damn uncomfterble! Although everything else about the seat is awesome, the armrests will have to go....

I apologize for forgetting that the pics are password-protected, but thanks to Boeing 727 who provided them.
I could have told you, too.

I hope we don't run into trouble with Airbus about the password, but what are we doing other than promoting their product?

Again, sorry folks!

Airbus just helps to keep this thread clean from haters!!! 

Seriously: it's a real pity we can't see them. They must be nice and, hopefully, realistic - I mean something really to be expected on a production plane, not a "flying hotel".

Seriously again: it is not a first strange thing on their www, another one was just discussed today - that picture of 330/340 cross-section with no central overhead bins (or was it Il86 ?)...

All very fine, of course, but aside from the Sultan of Dubai version shown in the pix, what does the REAL A3XX interior look like? You know, the one with row upon row of economy passenger seats?

OK, here it is (thanks to Boeing727). For me the greatest thing is the walking area - you can spend time somewhere else besides your seat or aisle. But I have to agree with Bacardi182: we'll see all this flying only if it is economically viable. Otherwise something like this could be seen today on 747 that is only 17 inches less wide...

Well, as we all expected, the first class sections are going to be fantastic !!!

However, as Ilyushin 96M stated above, what's the Y section going to look like?

Hopefully, at least in the first few years of its operation, it will be a bit roomier than the 747. But I bet that once routes get more established and the A3XX proves itself, airlines will cram in as many pax as they can. The history of the 747 repeated !

Yet, I can't wait to fly on an A3XX. Even you Airbus haters have to admit that even if the A3XX isn't gonna be the STarship Enterprise, its going to debut a lot of cool features not featured on today's airliners as yet.

I love the interior, but with something so spacious, and since the seats are so far away from the walls, I'd want the windows to be bigger. Something like the large round ones on a Gulfstream, and conveniently located, a.k.a. ERJ-145's window position, not the awful low CRJ's (and the windows are tiny!) .

Oh, beautiful!!! Does anybody know the URL of the web site where I can order my A3XX bizz jet? Hope that it isn't password protected too.
It seems to me that fasten-seat-belt-lights and even seat belts are extra. I just hope that these extras aren't too expensive because I am not a rich man.
I don't see the swimming pool either, but no problem, I can afford the water.

Sure Surf is right. Boeing would never make that on a 747X. Neither would Airbus on a 3XX.
But maybe some Boeing guy on a dark and rainy day would produce similar computer generated pictures and protect them with a password so nobody with the slightest knowledge of aviation will ever be able to see them - but he would never forget the seat belts!!!

Excuse me if I being naive, but what exactly is the point of these pictures. No airline is going to install that in their A3XXs. The only thing that looks like it might make it into production would be the bar underneath the staircase. Now THAT would be cool!! I wouldn't want to be the bartender, though. You'd have to be like 5' 2" to serve the patron seated at the far left of the picture.

This signals a new era in air travel. The A3XX is surely to be the biggest, most sophisticated, and luxurious skyliner ever made. Unprecedented in comfort, size, and amenities. Elaborate decor in every seat and sumptious meals in every class. Even a full second deck accessed via a grand staircase on the main deck. First Class even boasts a smoking room and piano bar where the well-to-do will gather after dinner. Nothing is too good for the first class A3XX passenger. And personal TV screens in every seat, including steerage. In fact, I understand that accommodations in her steerage class will be the equivalent of business class on all other aircraft. The A3XX is the epitome of Man's creative genius.

Her first transatlantic journey will attract quite a manifest I'm sure. All the best people will be there. Media tycoons, wealthy industrialists, cyberspace barons. A veritable Whos-Who of the social elite. And I shall make it my occupation to see to it that I have a seat on her maiden voyage too, to join with them in ushering in this new age in air travel.

The A3XX will even offer the utmost in safety. On her main deck she will store parachutes in case of emergency. Merely I precaution you understand. All that is unneeded. It is my understanding that the A3XX is, in fact, uncrashable. Uncrashable I say, my good man! They say God, Himself, could not crash her. And I for one believe them. Would that be a real possibility, they would carry parachutes for all the passengers. As it is, there will be only enough for barely half the passengers. Yet still more than required by law. Surely, testimony to the infallibility of the A3XX, and to the confidence of the men who fly her!


-Sir Walter Worthington, A3XX passenger, First Class, quoted in an excerpt from the book A Flight to Remember by Hmmmm..., Random House Publishing, 2054, 3rd Edition.

These pictures remind me of pictures from a WWII advertisement from Martin Aircraft promoting a civilian version of its mighty Mars flying boat in which passengers would fly when the war ended. As with the Airbus, the Martin concept was spectacular. But alas, as much fun as it is to engage in fantasy, these ideas often remain firmly planted on terra firma.  
It seems that the only thing that had changed over the last half century is the quality of the computer animation  

Nevertheless, the pictures are cool and the A3XX will be a perfectly fine plane, even without the bowling alley, discotheque, and indoor plastic bird bath.
