Hello, I am just curious that Airbus has made this huge aircraft The A3XX. Will it be succesful? Will people like this concept of a double decker with a sleaping quarter and a resturant. I dont suppose so. Please suggest. Thanks Kabir

RE: The Airbus 3XX??? I'm sure that the frequent long haul flyers i.e London-Australia would subscribe to a little bit of luxury and space to break up what without doubt is a monotonous and laborious journey.Just think what a sight that aircraft would be to us enthusiasts. Something new to add to our already exhausted list of sightings. I for one would like to take a trip and experience this rival to the 747.

RE: The Airbus 3XX??? I don't believe that all those "Artist's images" of workout studios and restaurants are worth paying attention to. Look up the relevant pages in the AIRBUS website www.airbus.com; peek at the seatmap and you will find - rows and rows and rows of seats. Nothing else. I think the hopelessly inadequate infrastructure at most of the world's airport terminals will lessen the A3XX's success. How long will it take to board 555 impatient passengers through one loading bridge? To get them through the few Immigration counters that are open (always next to 20 - 30 deserted ones...)? Better get some really long-lasting games on your laptop in order to survive that...
RE: The Airbus 3XX??? Well, the A3XX can be succesfull only when airport authorities make the nescessary arangements. I don't know which airport you travle from, nut the airport I'm most familiar with is Amsterdam Schiphol. This airport made special arrangements by building special facilities that are able to handle A3xx economiccally and passenger friendly at the same time. I mean in the seventies no one would have expected that the 747 would be sucg a succes. Innovations needs some changes in paradigms.

RE: The Airbus 3XX??? Well it's a bit funny. I started a similar database at the AFM-forum (military avation). Perhaps you can go overthere, we already have some good information. Benjamin
