When I viewed this yesterday, I added this comment:
The photo is indeed breathtaking. However, the aircraft in question is not the A380 Super Jumbo, but in fact and Airbus A320 operated by BMI. I give my compliments to the photograopher for the great photo, but give a big thumbs down to the reporter and the paper for, once again, getting it wrong
Today, not only have they changed the copy, but also removed my comment!
My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.
It says in the report that they're configured with 130 seats. If this info is correct (chances are it won't be!), it must be an A319. I've flown on 2 of Bmi's A322's (G-MIDT & G-MIDZ), and they have 160 seats.
