  • New airline seating plans will squeeze in 615 passengers

    If the thought of sitting in an airline seat leaves already leaves you feeling claustrophobic, then brace yourself for the next development – flights carrying a record-breaking 615 passengers will begin with months. The Airbus A380, the world's biggest passenger plane, is set to break the record for the most passengers carried by a scheduled flight, overtaking the rival Boeing 747. The Boeing 747, launched in the 1970s, typically holds 350 to 400 people. The A380 "Superjumbo", which started flying commercially in 2007, is certified to carry up to 853 people, but no airline has even approached that shoulder-shrinking capacity.
