Does Size Matter?

Earlier this week, Airbus introduced the A380 airplane. "Yippie, who cares" you might say, but honestly it's pretty cool to think we can get on board a tube of metal that is 239'3" long and 23'5" wide with 554 other passengers and travel 9300 miles across the earth without refuling.

According to Airbus, Size does matter. This monster, 49% more space and 35% more seats than the Boeing 747, is HUGE... and more effient.

Check out the link. You can take a virtual tour of the aircraft and read all the stats on what's being called the future of air travel.
