Can It Fly? Biggest Passenger Airplane In The World

While all aeroplanes are impressive, a magnificent feat of engineering, it’s the biggest planes that are the most awe-inspiring. With recent news that the largest plane in the world, the Airbus A380 will soon be going out of production, we could well be seeing a turning point. Sadly, these massive jets are just not as profitable as they were expected to be. Logic has it that the bigger the plane, the more passengers the airline can carry and so increase profits on a per-flight basis. In reality, if a flight is under-subscribed, these huge aircraft can be flying half empty, and with a large size comes a greater fuel cost. So as a tribute to these mammoth planes, we take a look at the largest planes in the world…
