Airbus is trying to make the biggest passenger aircraft fit even more people — so if you like feeling like a sardine, this could be the travel option for you.
The Airbus A380 is a double-decker aircraft and holds an average of 497 passengers. The company wants to bump that number to 575.
To do that, it would remove a top deck stowage area, rearrange and combine staircases and move crew rest areas.
Giant aircraft can really only land in hub cities. So if a passenger is heading somewhere that's not a metropolis, they'll probably have to switch to a smaller plane at some point.
So airlines are looking at smaller planes because they can land in more places and they're more fuel-efficient.
But not every company is thinking that way. Airbus believes the airline market is headed for bigger planes.
