I am impressed with how civil aviation and aircraft have evolved over the last 20 years. Currently, the battle for blue sky supremacy is taking place between Boeing and Airbus, which are the largest companies producing civilian and freight commercial aircraft.

Boeing is now proud of the new 747-8i. Boeing 747-8 is a completely new aircraft, built on the characteristics of the Boeing 747 series. The aircraft has considerably improved aerodynamics with new wing tips, being much more eco-efficient.

Gent GEnx-2B engines use 15% less fuel / passenger and CO2 emissions are much lower. Moreover, the emissions of zogmot were reduced by 30%. The first aircraft delivered is configured in 3 classes and has 362 seating capacity.

But it is not the largest aircraft on the market. Airbus has managed to manufacture a model with full 2 floors and we are talking about A380-800 superjumbo here. It flew for the first time in 2005, but the first plane was delivered to Singapore Airlines only in 2007. The aircraft was designed to carry 555 passengers in a configuration with 3 classes or 853 in a single class configuration.

But that's not all. The structures were designed to be used not only on a cargo version, but also on a longer version - A380-900. This may be the future superjumbo, and the Airbus plan is to increase the transport capacity to approximately 1000 of passengers, provided the aircraft is configured in a single class.

Tom Williams, Airbus Executive Vice President, said the Airbus A380 project has been designed from the outset to support expansion. The wings have been designed for much larger aircraft, so stretching the fuselage can be made very easy. So there are great chances for 2020 to walk with A380-900 or even bigger planes.
