Airbus pushes ahead of Boeing, as more airlines choose it for premier class comfort
When Emirates Airlines announced that it had purchased 90 of Airbus' new A380s, the carrier edged out the competition between Boeing and Airbus, making latter the dominant luxury aircraft in the sky.
The Superjumbo jet was expected to have the same fate as the Concorde, one that was beautiful to look at, but couldn't sell, according to Press Europe. However, the plane, which can transport 800 passengers, is now joining the fleets of many airlines around the world.
In order to find passengers to fill the large plane, many airlines have personalized their cabins. Singapore Airlines, for example, cut the number of economy-class seats to provide more private suites for those in first class. The large lie-flat beds provide an extra comfort for those on long haul flights.
Air France has even installed an electronic art gallery in its business class cabins, according to the news source.
For those travelers looking for a luxurious travel experience, check to see if the aircraft is an Airbus A380, since they are the newest and most comfortable planes making any long haul trip.
