Airliner With Most Seats Ever Unveiled
The biggest airliner in the world just got more seats than ever before.
Over the weekend, Emirates airline unveiled a new Airbus A380 outfitted with 615 seats.
"For those keeping score, that is the most ever,"
writes aviation blogger Gilbert Ott
Air France A380s fly the largest capacity configuration
in active service -- 538
Think about it: 615 passengers is like an entire town flying on one airplane.
In fact, assuming the 2010 Census is accurate, this plane actually has enough seats to fly the entire population of Circle, Montana.
For those who don't follow the industry, the A380 is basically a flying building.
It's the monster truck of airliners, with four engines and two floors of seats.
The 615-seater is expected to begin flying a route between Dubai and Copenhagen in December,
