Default The biggest will get even bigger!

A bit of Airbus good news for a change!

According to Bloomberg John Leahy (Airbus Chief Operating Officer) has confirmed yesterday that Airbus will start developing a A380 stretch in 2010. The new A380-900 will have a max 900 seat capacity. Emirates is strongly interested. The new mega-bird is supposed to enter the market around 2015.

Notice the new 4th door ("door 6") on the upper deck:

The bigger they are the harder they fall. Why do I have visions of the Hindenburg here. With peak oil set to vanish in the next few decades one wonders what they'll use for fuel.... one wonders what we'll all use since people are so reluctant to start looking at alternative fuel sources (no mention of fuel companies and goves and multinationals etc etc )

I can well see the time when 3 or 4 airline companies buy one of these together and split it into sections. That way they will be able to find enough passengers to fill the thing and save big time on costs.
