Airbus A380-800

The Airbus A380 – Lufthansa‘s flagship

The A380 is the largest and heaviest passenger aircraft in the world. It is 73 meters long, 24 meters high, and has a takeoff weight of up to 560 tons. The Lufthansa A380 seats 509 passengers, and its four Rolls-Royce engines each generate 70000lbs of thrust. That‘s the rough equivalent of what 3500 cars could produce. Ecologically speaking, too, the A380 raises the bar. The megaliner is quieter than other planes, uses less fuel and can even “think” for itself and automatically apply the brakes after landing on the runway.
