How Far Are We From Seeing A Triple Decker?

Wed Jul 23, 2008 10:55 pm

With the A380 flying now, I was thinking, when will we see a triple deck airliner hit the skies? I know it will be so time from now, but when do you see an A/C builder, introducing a true triple decker with a giant baggage compartment under all three decks? Also, who you think would build it, Boeing, Airbus or another A/C builder?

I know there been other post about triple deck airliners, but I just wanted to post mine.  Smile

I would say never at first but who ever thought we would see a double decker!

Well something that big would have to have massive engines so would be very expensive to run/fuel but i suppose that would be offset by the passenger numbers.

Hey Hey :D

It already exist with the 748 except the airlines did not opt for the option of having suites in the cargo hold!
