Different A380-series (renamed) - Which Is Which?

Fri Aug 10, 2001 2:43 am

Hi everybody,

as you probably know, there were three A380 versions planned: the -100 to start with, plus later possibly a stretched -200 and a shrunk -50.

Now that the basic model has been renamed -800, what are the current names for the -50 and the -200?

Out of Airliners Magazine:


shrunk aircraft for 480 passengers in 3 class layout, range 7,650nm

baseline design for 555 seats in 1 class configuration, range 7,650nm

421-473 seats, range 6,970-7,270nm

57 pallet 150 tonne freighter, range 5,725nm

555 seats, range 8,750nm

projected short range version

Stretch for 656-960 seats, range 7,650nm

combi version of -200 (additional information not available)

freighter version of -200 (additional information not available)

Short range version of -200

3.5m stretch of -200 for 1,000 seats

Of course, when the project goes into production I'm sure there will be many more versions.
