Can Anyone Provide Actual Dimensions For An A-380?

Wed Jan 12, 2005 8:44 am

I would like a comparison of the length, wing span and height, etc. with an A-380 and a Boeing 747-400. Seems to me that the 747 could be 'fattened-up' to become a 747-XXL double decker.

You can get all that information from airbus.com and boeing.com, buddy.

Boeing may eventually build a larger plane to replace the B777-300 and B747, but it will not be a "fattened-up" B747. It would be an all-new plane. Boeing has done serveral design studies. The one that seems most plausible to me is a large twin with a 270inch circular composite fuselage. It would have passenger seating only on the maindeck, though upstairs could probably accomodate crew rest seating and bunks, passenger sleeping bunks, galleys, and economy class lavatories. A double-decker is also conceivable, but I doubt it.
