Notes

A380-800 is the first true double-deck passenger airliner for the long-range market. Maximum cruising speed M0.88 and can reach FL350 in 28 minutes as initial cruise altitude. The 555-seat aircraft uses the same cockpit layout and operating procedures as the Airbus A320 and A330/A340 Families, ensuring that pilots qualified on other Airbus fly-by-wire aircraft can step into the A380 with minimal additional training. First flight in April 2005. First delivery to Singapore Airlines October 2007. Total of 229 aircraft were delivered (November 2018).
