  • So this aircraft could haul about half the number of passengers as the A-380? I would probably be a lot cheaper and would take a day and a half to go from NYC to London? If the tickets were half as much and they offered more space and creature comforts I would go for that. I am sure most tourists would and probably a lot of businesses would as well. Through in freebies like wifi and big screen TVs and movies as well as lay flat seats and now you are talking. And offer better food service and this will be kind of like the Orient Express and First Class on some of the better train services.
