Today the French Airplane Manufacturer Airbus revealed their latest project, the A390.
The Airbus 390 will come in two variants, one is A390-800 and the other -900. Both are according to Airbus, identical…
As of now the launch date is still unconfirmed, but what we do have is information on some early orders from two big carriers.
Emirates has ordered 190
Lufthansa has ordered, only 1
Lufthansa is also said to be the launch customer.
Airbus has said in a statement that the A390 will be an upgraded version of the A380, and will feature two extra engines to show that bigger is better. The A390 will be a direct competitor to Boeing’s 747-8I who currently holds the world record of being the world’s longest commercial airplane (length in size) to have been built to date.
Last but not least, What do you guys think about this? Did you expect the A390 to look this this? And have you notice that this is a April Fools Joke? XD
Knew that it was a prank after I saw the spoiler… Before that I was like:
99 % of my brain: Airbus holds a Guinness World Record for worst decision (not biggest plane).
1 %: it’s April Fools
