Would You Want To Fly On The A380?

Sun Apr 04, 2004 7:20 pm

Would you?

Some people have said it would be just too massive and immense to contemplate flying on it.

I cant wait personally, would you feel comfortable and safe on such a massive aircraft?

Jump is not as large as 707/DC8 to 747. A lot of my flights are long haul, so more walking around area fine by me, bring it on!! Plus swimming pool, shops, sauna, fitness centre and all the other on board amenities will be great (only joking, some people will take this serious)

Yes, I like such massive planes. And I expect a couple of technical highlights to make traveling on long haul flights easier and more convenient, e.g. net surfing.

Too bad that I really don´t see the A380 in the longhaul routes I use to fly (between Spain and Southamerica, mostly).

Personally, I can't wait! The first airline that flies this big beauty to New Zealand will have me on it. Geeky, but I'm really excited about this aircraft. Forget borders, it'll be the biggest achievement, in this specific area, of humanity to date.

Perhaps not at first, until the bugs worked out of it (re: DC-10). It will probably have a limited market, mainly transcontinental flights between Europe and Asia, US and Asia, some US - Europe like JFK-LHR, where limited flight slots capacity and overall demand is sufficient to support it. To me the biggest problems will be boarding and departing this a/c. Can you imanage the crowds and confusion for the gates at boarding, and the crowds for the baggage when get off?

Do bears "you know what" in the woods? Of course I'd like to fly in it. I can't wait for it. Only two years now, before SIA puts it into service. My big regret is that it will be difficult, if not impossible, to get a jump seat on it.

That aside, it will be a terrific experience and I'm really looking forward to it.

Ltbewr:

I don't think an increase of about 150 people makes such a big change. For airports, which have sufficient infrastrucure to cope the 744 easily, it won't be a problem...

Don't you think the flight slots capacity in the USA-sky is low enough and the demand is high enough in the States, too? I do...

That's another reason why you hear a lot of criticism about the A380-800 it's a "European Achievement" & not American Achievement!

Perhaps it's because of comments like that and the implicit (but unintentional I'm sure) arrogance behind it, that Airbus is finding it so challenging securing an American market.

I doubt that prices will change dramatically. You guys know how airlines are.
Actually deep inside me i wouldnt fly on first class on the a388. It just makes me feel 'one of the 100 apples', whereas a smaller jet (a330/777) makes me feel 'one of the 15'.

Personally, I would love to fly the new A380 once it enters service... of course I do hope it's in a premium cabin that I'm sitting (I think we all hope that). However, I'm 24 now and since my first commercial flight when I was 5 years old, I've yet to fly on any Airbus aircraft. Before anyone says anything, no I have not only flown twice in my life... I usually fly about twice a month and secondly, I've never chosen flights according to equipment. The majority of my flights just happen to be on DL metal, so I suppose that's a major reason. European or American built is the most rediculous argument I've ever heard. The A380 isn't a "European" acheivement... it's an acheivement of mankind. Can we all please just stop with this "my country is better than your country" stuff? It's really getting old and rather annoying. And for my fellow Americans who say "Boeing or bust...", are you telling me that if the Concorde was still in service and someone offered you the chance to fly her, you would say no because it wasn't built in America?? Yikes.

If it was introduced today, I would not want to fly it. I would give it a year or two to work out all the bugs and then jump on board. What is extremely weird about the A380 is the emergency evacuation system; there are way too many slides and they seem to all run into each other. Its seems way to complicated to assemble in an evacuation situation.

Firstly, I apologise for the strange comments from my fellow State Siders. Comments like we won't fly until no terrorism, or it has been in service 50 years without a problem with the toilet flushing. Give me an f-in break. It is an aeroplane. It will be certified to ours, as well as European standards, or do you Boeing not going freaks believe the FAA will lower their standards for 380. This 380 discussion is going same way as last one, down the vacuum toilet. If you don't want to fly it, don't, but please give grown up reasons, instead of making all of us this side look stupid.

I for one will fly 380, 7E7 or any other certified passenger flying aircraft supplied by Airbus or Boeing. It is called clean and safe transportation, as my friend Gordo tells me when I get on board CO!

Who doesn't????????

Even if the "Spirit of Saint Louis" still flying, I will love be in there.

unfortunately, because of my domicile, I think it will be a little difficult to me to fly one of them, at least at very the beginning.

And trying to be sincere, I love "smaller" ones, like the A340. I recently flew from Los Angeles to Singapore and viceversa (almost 19 hrs. nonstop), and the a/c has just the perfect size.

By the way, can somebody tell me how many crew members (an average) will need an A380, for attending so many passengers?

of course! Its big,its new,and the press will kill for it!Since the amount of passengers depends on the evacuation tests,there is more room per passenger in the thing  Smile Airbus and boeing both have their good points.

Right now this thing is a crowd killer.

than tell me about the 27 major airframe write-offs of the 747s? and 23 of them look like ones almost no-one survived.All planes will crash eventually,and many people dont see the 747 as a crowd killer.

But, as an airline employee, who usualy works the gates, I wouldn't want to work it for anything in the world. What do you do with 600 people if it's cancelled? Can you imagine how much they could overbook such an aircraft? Do you really want to start boarding THAT early, as a gate agent?  Smile

I'll fly it, but I'll let someone else take care if it at a gate.  Laugh out loud

No I would not. You know in spite of all the wonderful ideas Airbus has brought us in regard to passenger comfort with the 380, airlines will put as many seats in that aircraft as possible. They will leave no square inch unused. Look what they did with the Airbus A340-600. There is far more leg room in the 747 than on the Airbus.

First off I want to say I'm a proud American, but I also am an Airbus guy. However, there's no way I'm geting on an A380. At least until it proves itself to the safety world. To me it's the Titanic of the skies, far too many parallels. Say what you want. Blame my flag if it makes you feel big. It doesn't change the fact that that plane scares the hell out of me.

On topic: I doubt it'll be a whole lot different flying on the A380 than on other long haul jets, at least from the passengers point of view. I wouldn't mind flying with it once all bugs are resolved.

Off topic regardnig reply #39:
Stefandotde: Instead of commenting on the subject you prefer to continue your senseless anti-American bashing that you have started ever since you joined here. It seems you're less trying to contribute in a productive way to this forum than trying to piss off your fellow American members here.
Your signature is another great proof of this. Maybe you should rethink your strategy, otherwise you might consider not writing anything at all rather than the usual hateful stuff you seem to like so much. I'm just saying this because I and a lot of other people are tired of having to read that stuff in the middle of an otherwise ok going thread. I guess we'd rather prefer to not start a political discussion in a civil aviation thread.
Thank you for your understanding.

I'd fly it!!! Who wouldn't want to be on the largest commercial airplane. Been on a 747 and recently a 777. You only live once. And regardless who makes it, they are still humans and you only live once. If the plane crashes it crashes, its just your time. Don't think about what it, and just live your life to the fullest.

With that said, I would rather fly ANY widebody before I fly some of the CRJs for 2 hours plus. That is what the true crime is. No offence to Canadians but come on, give us a chance to get on the plane without hitting out head. Like a ping pong ball sometimes, hit one side then you compensate and you hit the other side and its a vicious cycle to try and stop.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I'm all about Boeing succdeeding, but they have nothing on the table for that market, their working on the 7E7 which I also can't wait to see and fly on.

I would love to fly on it for the experience of flying an aircraft that size. I mean, a double Decker aircraft is a marvelous achievement. I remember when I flew on the 747-400 for the first time that I was just amazed at the size of it, and the A380 should not be an exception.

the only thing I would hate, echoing many on this forum, is the line at the gate. Could one imagine checking in for this flight, then waiting at the gate with 400 people, then going through customs once you get there. I'd think it would add at least half an hour to current wait times, though I'm not for certain.

but hell, I can't wait to see a plane that big take off!

I think when the A380 was called a crowd killer above, the reasoning was terrorism, not crashes. We saw the damage 19 hijackers managed to inflict with two 757's and two 767's. With four A380's, there's 2400 people right there. I'm not saying that is the right thinking, just explaining what was meant.

I am excited about the production of this massive aircraft and look forward to seeing it. I am still not sure if I can get up the guts to fly on it. I have flown 747's, but that was almost too much...600 people in an aluminum tube...

Airbus has great ideas for equipping the aircraft with all of this extra stuff...gift shops, lounges, shopping, etc. I think we all know that airlines are not going to go for this, however...they are too interested in getting as many butts in the seats as is inhumanely possible.

Just to show the A vs B bashers...I am a Boeing fan all the way, however I do fly on Airbus equipment. Even if Boeing was producing it, I still would have the same concerns. For those of you who think every American is like the next, you should join Stefandote and his group of sheltered Europeans because you are all a little disconnected.

Some people here obviously don't get it. With the exception of the wingspan, the A-380 is not going to be so much bigger than a 747. If I'm not mistaken, Japanese 747-Ds carry more pax.
As for legroom: For the 1,0088,392nd time: The cabin configuration is up to the carriers and Emirates, Qatar and Virgin have already announced they will provide some nice amenities and/or install less seats than Airbus' original configuration suggests.

If you don't want to fly on a crowd killer, don't fly the 747-100. Maybe there will be a third center fuel tank that spontaneously combusts in mid-air. That had to be said.
BTW: I for one would nevertheless fly on a 741.

I would definitely fly the A380. I also plan to go see the maiden, will be my first trip to Europe Big grin

- JrMafia90, The A380 will not be able to serve at PHL because the taxiways are no where wide enough to handle the beast just as many airports taxiways can't. I can imagine that when one of the PHL expansion projects are completed around 2020 then they will take into consideration making enough room for the her.

- EK413, It's nice to see some one sticking up for Airbus. The one about would they fly the A380 if it were a Boeing made aircraft, that's a killer  Smile. Honestly, I don't see why someone can't like BOTH equally. I love both companies and one of my teacher's from last year told me that her brother works for Boeing and he wouldn't even fly them  Laugh out loud.

The 380 to me is a good acheicvment in aviation. IT is gonna do wonders for some airlines and it is going to look great in the skies and painted on some of my favourite livery's. BUT......

There is too much hype around it now, i think i would rather wait until it has proved itself safety wise then give it a go! I love boeing and i think im going to love airbuses once i fly on my first next thursday.

2 can exist together!
