German newspaper "Sueddeutsche Zeitung" has a bunch of photos of the A380 from the inside on their website:

Must be a "demo" interior as EY's latest First and Business Product are different.

I guess so... they also write something about "Second Class" when showing the Y pics.... so I guess there is just Y and J installed....

Wow, although it looks really nice, I couldn't help but notice how bright it was. If the light levels aren't off in the photos, I would probably be wearing sunglasses the whole flight. Other than that, it looks really nice, I can't wait to see more pictures!

I guess it's just the 'demo' interior from Airbus (what Stitch already mentioned). Nice colors. The F-class seat looks like it's from the same manufacturer as the KE F-seat. I rather prefer these colors in an interior than the 'fake gold/wood' from EK.

I guess this is where preference comes in.. I think the color for the F seating is horrible.. and I didn't much care for the coach seating look either.. What will be interesting to see how real airlines outfit these for real operation.



I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)

I am sure Airbus chose those unusual light interior colors to give the plane a feeling of open space. A selling point of the plane is its roomy interior. Darker colors may make the cabin look smaller and more cramped. Interesting to see that last shot of the economy cabin. Those seats don't look any wider than the current cattle class seats we poor folk in steerage are stuck with!

what do you expect, EY might get a new bix or first class, so why would they put the current biz and first class on, even though the plane will go to them eventually? Even if they don't change their premium product, they wouldn't want the other airlines knowing this.

Golly, I thought the wave of the future would look like the future, but the A380 interior looks very present and almost retro with those weak pastel colors and such.

Those coach seats look smaller and more cramped than those in other airplane coach sections. They look quite mundane too. Even the Pan Am ads of the 747's coach class in 1970 still seem to hold their own against these photos.

Where are those lounges? Where are those cocktail bars? And the other photos showing the spaciousness? The mood lighting? Those pics make the super jumbo look very cramped.

I think the LH and Airbus marketing departments must have fallen asleep at the wheel.

I'm afraid the A380 is not getting all the attention she deserves. Tsk tsk.

As I can tell from the pictures, this is a 3-4-3 configuration. It already looks terribly tight. And to think that airlines are planning a 3-5-3..... Awful.

The caption of picture number eight calls economy/coach 'second class'... sounds more like a train there. Looks very similar to a 747's economy class - isn't the A380's main deck a bit wider than a 747's?

Take a look a the video posted in Civ Av recently, there you can see the bar and lounges. These photos are from a German newspaper, so don't blame LH and Airbus for what you see here  Smile

Anyway, there is room for all this stuff, but will the airlines order it? I doubt it. Rather put a couple of extra hi-yield seats in there.

Regarding the cramped Y seats; well, because the aircraft is larger, one should not expect the seats to we wider? The idea is to add more seats.

It has been emphasised numerous times on here and by LH themselves that this is NOT an airline interior...    simply what airbus put in for these route proving flights.

I personally like the bright cabin, it looks very spacious too. I'd rather have that, than some dreary and faded 767!

That was actually me, and I didn't intend it to be a complaint. I knew EY used color highlights in their current premium cabin seating so I thought at first look that perhaps it was fitted out with an EY interior. But looking at pictures of EY's current Pearl and Diamond Zone seating, it is different. First actually reminds me of AF in terms of the suite design (not materials).

I'd prefer the 2+3+2 seating of the 767, myself, but I do agree that I too find the higher ceilings and wider cabins of the 777 and A388 to be more relaxing thanks to the sense of spaciousness. Never did like the flatish ceiling of the 747 main deck, myself...

It looks like the upper deck's width is in-between a 767 and a 777. Am I right?

Basing that off of the Bix seat layout of 2+2+2 compared to 767 (2+1+2) and 777 (2+3+2), in general, of course.

How can there possibly be a jam-packed 'media' flight aboard the A380 this week and I can't find any 'media' about it ANYWHERE? Were the professional photographers, journalists, TV/print folks all too BUSY gorging their faces on free food to do their JOB?

On WGN-TV in Chicago they had some video of the interior of the 380 that flew in. It was the same interior as is shown in the link on this thread. White walls with a kind of dark beige over light beige upholstery.

FAR's require lowering the cabin lighting during flight. In fact, lighting is lowered just prior to takeoff. You needn't worry about sunglasses. On FL's new 737-7NG's... we had a setting for night flights too. Just enough to see down the aisle without disturbing passengers at rest.

All in all, I think the interior is nice. Everyone needs to keep in mind that this is the interior Airbus chose to for its unveiling and is not indicative of any one customer's particular taste or style. I have to agree, though, that the interior looks rather dated compared to the photos I have seen of the 747-800.
