Sky giant: the Airbus A380.

Ten-years of development of the “The Airbus S.A.S.” company resulted in release of a double-deck aircraft, the Airbus A380, which has surpassed its competitor, the Boeing-747, but fell short of an absolute record of commercial operation of the AN-225 “Mriya”. The sale of The Airbus A380 jets is designed for clients who are large international airlines. Charter flights are simply unreasonable on this giant. One regular scheduled flight from Frankfurt to Tokyo and back in a first class will cost about 10,000 euros. However, the comfort of a long-distance flight will be of the level of charter flights on a business jet.

Like many transcontinental charter flights, flights on the Airbus A380 jet lasts more than 10 hours. The Airbus 380 jet provides an equipment of three classes: first class, business class and economy class. The second deck is separated from the first one with two staircases at the beginning and end of the passenger compartment. On the first floor, there are three areas of economy class. The seats here are less comfortable than those in the Airbus A320 jet: one can feel all movements of passengers sitting in front and behind, but this experience is a subjective one. German designers of the Recaro Company were explicitly required by “Lufthansa” soon to modify their ergonomics. Passengers can use the 9-inch screen, read the information about the flight or choose multimedia entertainment.

Business-class in the Airbus A380 jet is represented by 98 slightly wider seats (67 to 52 centimeters), the number which is almost a record for this class of aircrafts. Distance between the seats was increased from 79 to 152 centimeters, compared to the economy class. Chairs can take almost a horizontal position, each having an electricity socket, USB-port and individual lights next to it.

Any airline is really proud of its first class seats. The Airbus A380 jet has eight beds of 80 centimeters width for VIP-persons and the flight comfort is comparable to charter flights. Each seat is convertible to a horizontal position, equipped with a 17-inch monitor and remote from others by 213 centimeters – a private space in the first class of the Airbus A380 jet is really impressive. Each first-class passenger gets a personal storage cabinet for private use during the flight.

The three classes can be filled up to capacity by accommodating 420 people in the bottom. The maximum load of a three-class Airbus A380 jet is 526 passengers. The sale of jets of a one class configuration will allow one to transport passengers with 853 travelers on board. The undoubted advantage and a highlight of design of the Airbus 380 is low fuel consumption. It is, on average, three liters of fuel per passenger per 100 kilometers. The maximum range of this 73-meter handsome Airbus A380 jet is 15,200 kilometers. The fuselage looks slightly flattened on both sides, and the height is 24 meters.

Its wingspan is really impressive – it is almost 80 meters with four engines arranged in pairs of 311 kilonewtons each. Depending on the modification, there are different options of the power units at the Airbus A380 jet: Engine Alliance GP7270 (A380-871), Engine Alliance GP7272 (A380-862), Rolls-Royce Trent 970 (A380-841, 842), Rolls-Royce Trent 970B (A380-841, 842), Rolls-Royce Trent 972 (A380-842) or Rolls-Royce Trent 972B (A380-842). The cruising speed with such equipment is kept within 900 kilometers per hour, and the maximum is 1,020 kilometers per hour at an altitude of 13,115 meters. The ease and speed of the aircraft result from use of composite materials and carbon fiber in the fuselage skin.

The cockpit differs little from the A330 and 320 series – it has the same keyboard and side joystick. Nothing is in excess that would distract two pilots in the cockpit. Two of the nine displays reflect the current navigation data, and the other two are basic data on flight conditions; another two engines are monitoring the operation of four engines, and one monitors the entire system of the jet. The remaining two displays are multifunctional. The simplicity of operation significantly reduces the cost of crew training and, therefore, makes the transcontinental Airbus A380 operation economically attractive for airlines.
