The A346 is in produced but not delivered yet. I don't know the length difference between the A346 and the 773 but I'd guess that one of them are the longest a/c today. But will the A380 be longer when it gets in to production?

Just like birdwatching - without having to be so damned quiet!

The 777-300 is currently the longest aircraft but it will soon be overtaken by the A340-600.

773= 242ft 4in
A346= 246ft 11in
A380= 239ft 6in
An-225= 275ft 7in

An-225 beats all of them by far. Although the A346 is longer than 773, the 773 can be 4ft less long, but have much more style.  Big thumbs up

Need to clarify something here... A346 is the longest PASSENGER aircraft... whilst the An225 is the longest of ALL aircraft. Thank you for your attention.
