How Airbus A380 works?

The greatest
The Airbus A380 is indeed a giant. His wing span is 79.8 meters, it is 73 meters long and its maximum takeoff weight is over 540 tons.
Although it is the largest passenger plane ever made, it is not the largest aircraft in the world. That honor belongs to the An-225 Mriya, by the Ukrainian Antonov.

A plane this size can carry hundreds more passengers than today's airliners. The Airbus A380 double-decker passenger (with a lower level to load) could be designed for a single-class configuration and have a capacity of over 840 passengers.
However, as Airbus did not have this goal, the aircraft was designed for a three-class configuration accommodating 555 passengers. This still represents a remarkable progress in relation to the 416 passengers can be transported on the Boeing 747-400, the former leader in passenger capacity.

Internal arrangement

The Airbus A380 area for passengers (with two floors and twin-aisle) offers a whole new level of comfort on long distance trips.
In the roomier two-story passenger of Airbus A380, the seats and aisles are larger than the conventional. The first class seats turn into beds. The lower deck is designed for rest areas, spaces for business meetings and bars.

The Airbus A380 has a structure composed of 25% of plastic reinforced with carbon fiber material that makes the plane more resistant and at the same time lighter. Unlike most jumbo jets, which have high levels of noise, the A380 was produced with special shock absorbers that reduce engine noise. All this proves the efficiency and cutting edge technology used in the construction of the jet.

Airbus beats Boeing

Airbus sold fewer planes than Boeing in September, but retained a huge advantage over the competitor in the year.

Boeing, in turn, sold 530 aircraft between January and September, Sales include 46 new orders in September.

The Airbus was highlighted this year with a renewed version of the A320, with only one corridor, which will offer fuel economy.

Analysts, however, say that Boeing should return to the lead in the race for orders after accepting a reform  to the top-selling 737.

On Thursday, Airbus said it does not expect any impact of the debt crisis in Europe on orders and reiterated its forecast of 3.5 trillion dollars worth of aircraft orders over the next 20 years

Lufthansa will buy more Airbus A380

The Supervisory Board of Deutsche Lufthansa AG gave the green light to buy 12 more aircraft to meet the needs of the entire group. Will be purchased two Airbus A380, one A330-300s, four A320s and five E-195, the Brazilian manufacturer Embraer.

"The moderate expansion of the Lufthansa fleet is mainly due to the need for the modernization and consolidation of the European fleet in the short term. Along with the aircraft already requested to be added to the fleet in coming years, we have more opportunities to respond selectively and flexibly fluctuations in demand or market changes, "said Christoph Franz, CEO of Deutsche Lufthansa AG.

The Airbus A380  in the short term will be used in long distance flights, and five E-jets will reinforce the company's regional operations. Deliveries will begin in 2012, and the investment is approximately 1.3 billion euros.
