Will Growth Force The Use Of Larger Planes?

While the number of travelers is projected to grow, most major airports are land locked and are not planning new runways. Could this force the use of larger planes in the future instead of the smaller and more frequent flights we see now? This is what they do in Japan, and it seems to be economically viable for them..

Paul Wood, maybe British Airways is making a graceful exit into oblivion. Big grin

Seriously though, Bigo747 has a good point.

That’s why Airbus is making the A380.

Way back before Bigo747 was born, passenger space exceeded demand. That’s why there were lounges, larger seats, better service and sometimes live bands playing on the large jets.
Many of those 747 classics and DC-10s are still in service. They are filled to capacity with little seats to meet the demands of today’s travelers.
Larger planes are the wave of the future.
It may be an outdated concept but there are more and more people traveling faster than runways and terminals can be build.
As a Transportation consultant, we have to come up with more ideas to accommodate travelers.
Homeowners near airports don't want more runways and when there is bad whether this exacerbates the problem.
The only solution so far is larger jets.
You have fewer delays and less air traffic. That's why I feel that larger jets are the wave of the future.
