HOW MANY PASSENGERS!
Did I hear 840?
That’s one hell of a big airplane: Air Austral have ordered the first single class Airbus A380 double-decker super jumbos. These are so big they should require capitals – SUPER JUMBOS.
The capacity – a massive 840 passengers. Air Austral have ordered two. Based in La Réunion in the Indian Ocean, the carrier will operate the aircraft on the high-density route from La Réunion to Paris.
The A380 normally seats 525 passengers in a three-class configuration, but this one will have eight hundred and forty passengers on one aircraft. With its spacious and extremely quiet cabins, we will be entering a new era in terms of economic air travel, BUT
Do we even want to think about how long the line up’s will be for the washroom and don’t even think about how long you have to wait for your checked bag?
