Inside the World's Largest Passenger Plane

The Emirates airline showed off its newest passenger plane that will soon begin to service Logan Airport. A massive A380 is so big that Massport spent $30 million renovating Terminal E to accommodate it. Emirates operates more Airbus A380 aircraft, the world's largest passenger plane, than any other airline.

The A380 can carry up to 853 passengers (depending on the seat configuration), with its massive double-deck layout. It is providing Emirates with ample space for not only seats but also onboard amenities like showers and a lounge. Additionally, the aircraft’s cabin air gets recycled every two minutes. While advanced lighting systems provide mood and ambient features.

Emirates economy seats are 18 inches wide. They have a seat pitch up to 34 inches, according to Seat Guru. The wingspan of the massive aircraft, which can weigh as much as 575 metric tons, is about 262 feet.

Emirates recently introduced blankets for economy passengers aboard the A380 that are made entirely from recycled plastic bottles, in addition to economy amenity kits with eye masks, earplugs, a toothbrush, toothpaste, and socks.

The aircraft's double-decker layout allows for airlines like Emirates, Etihad, and Korean Air to install onboard lounges. Emirates' onboard lounge, which is reserved for first and business class passengers, even has a bartender.

Emirates' business class on the A380 has staggered seats that can be laid flat. It includes electronically operated sliding screen doors for privacy. Seat pitch in business class is 44 inches, while the seat width ranges from 18.5 to 20.8 inches. First class passengers will also find a vanity table with drawers and illuminated mirror. Also, a personal wardrobe, a personal mini-bar, and a dining table for in-flight meals.

There are two shower spas in the first class cabin with walnut and marble interiors. Outside, customers will find a waterfall.
