Plane-spotting

These days, air travel has become mundane and few booking systems allow passengers to search for and select a preferred aircraft type. But there is one exception: the Airbus A380.
The giant of the skies can quicken the pulse of even the most jaded business traveller and, recognising this, the Toulouse plane-maker has created a unique website – iflyA380.com – for travelers who want to experience the iconic double deck plane.
According to Airbus, the booking assistant will appeal to travelers as the only place where all 13 operators of the type can present the on-board services they offer and the destinations they serve. 
No word yet on whether there will be a cargo version. Do freight forwarders like to fondly imagine their freight nestling in the bellyhold of an A380? Perhaps they could make badges? With the A380’s limited cargo capacity, they might have a rarity value.
