What are your general thoughts on the Beluga and Beluga XL?

I think it’s brilliant and it’s a great replacement for the existing Beluga which operates all over Europe.

Why this plane is big? They call them beluga because is like a Beluga Dolphin.

That’s just what it’s called, I don’t work for airbus but I assume it’s called that based of its looks. It’s that large so it can tra sport large wings and other parts of aircraft for example the wings made in wales have to be flown over to final assembly.
