Super Jumbo Fuel Consumption

Mon Jul 04, 2011 6:53 pm

I would like to see some info regarding fuel consumption rates of the 2 types of super jumbos (in gallons per mile):

1. A380

a. EA

b. RR

2. B747-400

a. GE

b. PW

c. RR

I have heard that A380 is far superior in fuel economy compared to the B747-400 but just wanted to compare the data and see how much difference there is between them!

Thank you!
