11 Aircraft For A Comfortable Flight

Aircraft For A Comfortable Flight

The latest model of super-modern aircraft was shown at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2011.


The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European corporation Airbus, a subsidiary of EADS. It is the largest passenger airliner in the world. Due to its size, many airports had to modify and improve facilities to accommodate it.

Its seat capacity accounts for 853 passengers which means that the airplane can take all pupils of a regular school to the place of destination easily.

The plane can handle long nonstop flights making a flight from Moscow to Sidney nice and easy.

It took 10 years to develop the vehicle whereas its total cost accounted for 12 billion Euro.

According to Airbus, they need to sell 420 airplanes to cover their expenses. Test works are carried out at every flight.

The airplane weighs 280 tones. It also has four engines.

The plane is capable to carry up to 150 tones at the distance of 10 370 km.

Passengers of such a plane won’t be bothered by noise of any kind due to amazing noise isolation and new engines.

Pilots find it difficult to bear such a silence at first.

As far as Airbus A380 goes, the level of noise here is 50% lower then in Boeing 747 as higher air pressure is supported inside. These two factors will enable less fatigability of passengers.

    At a time when airlines are going for smaller aircraft, like the Super-100, Airbus builds this giant white elephant.
    I don’t care if it can sit up and beg, it will never make money.

      The Sukhoi Superjet 100 it’s a regional aircraft, they’re ment for other purposes.

      This one, instead, it’s a long range, high capacity, low consumption aircraft wich is perfect for intercontinental flights.

      A real beauty.

        sad but you are right about it, especially with the current energy price and the hiking cost of flight security, not many airline can afford this beautiful plane in their fleet. I would hope I can fly on one of the 380s in the future tho

      I fly recently from US To Dubai in Airbus and believe me its totally a different experience and it was nice experience.
      The sound level was definitely very low but not exactly silent, but you don’t believe that you wont be hearing constant humming noise which we are used to with Boeing Planes.
      The size will definitely amazed you.
      The leg room and shoulder room what makes it very comfortable.
      So instead of winning about it, praise the technology and peoples who bring it to us by experiencing it.

    I’m sorry. But please put me in the “do not like” column.

    Yes. Spectacular stats for carrying people and whatnot, but it’s just. not. right.

    Blimpy fuselage, strained to the max, overextended wings mounting lovely HUGE engines too far outboard…

    I’m sure it’s genius, but I cannot help having the “OVEREXTENDED” sign flashing in my brain.

    What was that British jet that… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/De_Havilland_Comet

    When a 380 has 25% of an 747’s airtime, I’ll apologize. Sincerely, and profusely.
