This sleek, highly informative infographic examines the Airbus 8360 and the various relevant facts that pertain to it. This graphic states many statistics that I personally wasn’t aware of. Most of us knew that it was the largest commercial airliner in the world, but did you know that it has 49 percent more space than the next biggest commercial plane, the Boeing 747-400. That is rather significant because it means that the Airbus is not only the largest commercial airliner in the world, but is far and away the largest in the world. Much like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s all-time scoring record, it is a record that is unlikely to fall in the immediate future. It is unlikely that there will be another airbus as large anytime soon, especially given the state of the airline industry.

Here are some more intriguing facts culled from the graphic:

–The bus can hold a whopping 853 people.
–It has better fuel efficiency than a hybrid car. Let that sink in. If only hybrid cars could be made with the same type of amazing engineering.
–The plane’s tail is equal to the height of five stacked giraffes.
–If all the wiring in the plan was laid end to end,
–The plane can carry 3,000 suitcases, enough for five for each passenger!

Without a doubt, flying in this plane is an extremely luxurious experience. Buckle up. It’s gonna be a bumpy grading ride (I think, someone, off in the distance, just revoked my pun license.
