I haven't flown on an A380, but it has been said by others that the cabin is pretty quiet, almost as quiet as the front rows of an MD-90. Likely Airbus put good sound isolation up high on the priority list. It doesn't go together with thin walls.
|Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 10):|
It does not look more thicker than other types in the pic.....why do you say so?.
|Quoting zeke (Reply 14):|
The AD refers to one fitting on one frame found during fatigue testing.
|Quoting CALTECH (Reply 15):|
maybe it would be best to read Airbus's own words about this AD
|Quoting Max Q (Reply 17):|
While the 'cabin walls' may appear to be quite thick a large part of that is the interior cabin structure which I doubt is load supporting,
|Quoting bikerthai (Reply 16):|
What is this Cruciform fitting? I am not familiar with this term on the Airbus.
|Quoting zeke (Reply 18):|
Do you think I just guessed it was one fitting on one frame found during fatigue testing as I said above, or do you think I might have actually have read it ???
|Quoting bikerthai (Reply 19):|
From a fuselage interiors stand point, the thickness of the wall is really caused by the stack-up of the stringers and frames. Most of the insulation is placed in-between- the frames and is usually not as thick as the frames deep.
|Quoting CALTECH (Reply 21):|
Why was it left out that it could affect the structural integrity of the wing ? Skipped over that part it seems. Funny that.
|Quoting DUSint (Reply 22):|
But you left it out in your original post of the AD yourself...?? That makes it even more funny...

It is located in an area rather famously known as the "wing-body join," the point of convergence for a lot of stresses that have caused trouble in numerous airplane designs.
