In 2030, You Could Buy An Airbus A380 Airframe For $1Mil

Enviado
 
In terms of its sheer size, the Airbus A380 ‘superjumbo’ is a passenger airliner like no other. However, and most crucially for Airbus, the type did not prove to be a commercial success. It is something of a white elephant in the airline industry, and its production was officially canceled last year, barely longer than a decade after its first commercial flight. However, what will this mean for the commercial values of the type’s existing examples in years to come? (simpleflying.com) Más...

Getting closer and closer. SPARC tests to begin in 2025.

They may even have difficulty in getting buyers for just the airframe. While a restaurant is doable, a hotel would be expensive on a per night basis due to lack of square footage. A home might be doable as well.
