Airbus SAS A380

Have you seen this thing? It’s now the largest passenger plane on the planet. It made its first commercial flight on Oct 25, 2007 from Singapore to Sydney.

The aircraft can carry 525 people in a three-class seating arrangement, or 853 people in full economy-class format. It’s as tall as a 7-story building. But it ain’t cheap…an average economy ticket costs around $1,000.00.

The Airbus A380 surpasses the Boeing 747-400 as the world’s largest passenger aircraft – ending Boeing’s 37-year claim to the title.
