You are foolish to think that the B 807 even exist by some amateur rendering

Awesome Carbon Fiber Seats on Qantas' Airbus A380's



Slim and light don't describe the Airbus A380, but sure do describe Qantas' carbon fiber seats on their A380.

The Airbus A380 is the largest commercial airline in the sky today. It is massive. When you think about this plane you don't think about "light." However there is something light about the seats on Qantas Airbus A380′s…they have carbon fiber.

What's carbon fiber you ask? (if you don't ask, skip this paragraph) In easy terms it is woven fiber material that is stronger and lighter than metals used in other airline seats. For a more complex answer, read this. While the carbon fiber on the seats is what got my attention about the Qantas' seats, there are plenty of other cool things going on.

About a year ago, Mary Kirby, via her Runway Girl Blog, talked about the 2009 Australian International Design Award of the Year for their seats. Not only because of the high-tech materials used, but also the way the seats recline. Like a high-end movie theater, the bottom part of the seat moves forward when one reclines, taking away less room from the person behind you.

Qantas told me, "The carbon fibre backshell on the Qantas A380 Economy seats is exclusive to Qantas and provides a unique natural element and visually stunning appearance. The material was selected for sleek design appeal and aircraft weight benefits."

These carbon seats might be exclusive now, but I am sure we will be seeing seats like these on future flights. As carbon fiber gets cheaper and airlines are looking to cut costs and green house emissions I imagine more carbon fiber will be used. And as Kirby shows, you might be seeing this seat on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner as well.

Dewan Rakyat: Malaysia Airlines Compensated RM329 Million For A380 Delay

KUALA LUMPUR, July 6 (Bernama) -- Malaysia Airlines received RM329 million in compensation from Airbus following the delay in delivering the A380 aircraft, the Dewan Rakyat was told Tuesday.

Malaysia Airlines' first A380 aircraft was supposed to have been delivered in 2007.

Deputy Transport Minister Jelaing Mersat said after several delays, Airbus informed the airlines that the aircraft would be delivered in August 2011 but that too had run into a delay.

The aircraft would now be delivered in April 2012, he said.

"Malaysia Airlines received a one-off payment of RM329 million," he said in reply to Hee Loy Sian (PKR-Petaling Jaya Selatan) who wanted to know when the first A380 would be delivered to Malaysia Airlines and whether compensation was paid following the delay.

To Hee's supplementary question on the upgrading works at KL International Airport to accommodate the superjumbo, Jelaing said it involved a cost of RM115.5 million.

15th July,2010

Hundreds of plane spotters have clogged the roads around Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport to observe the arrival of the Airbus A380, the world's biggest passenger airplane.

Many of them arrived early on Thursday morning, hours before the plane was due. It landed at the Dutch hub shortly before 10 o'clock.

The Airbus is doing the round of Europe's airports to familiarise ground staff with the huge craft and the logistics surrounding it. A Schiphol spokesperson told reporters there were no problems. "We've been prepared for this for a long while."

Runways were extended in the course of renovation work, including the taxiway curves which had to be widened.

It's the first time that the giant A380 touched down in Amsterdam.
