A380 vs 747-8
« on: March 28, 2012, 02:50:10 PM »
Now I know this has been discussed many, many, MANY times before, but when will the settings be fixed for the 747-8?

In no way is the 747-8 a direct competitor to the A380, but it is a good deal larger than the 777W which in AWS has less than 50 pax different max capacity.

Pax capacity:
Boeing website: 467 pax in 3 class - AWS: 361 pax in 3 class  http://www.newairplane.com/747/design_highlights/ (Go to Characteristics/747-8I)
Airbus website: 525 pax in 3 class - AWS: 525 pax in 3 class  http://www.airbus.com/aircraftfamilies/passengeraircraft/a380family/a380-800/specifications/

Range:
Boeing website: 8000nm - AWS: 8230nm  http://www.newairplane.com/747/design_highlights/ (Go to Characteristics/747-8I)
Airbus website: 8300nm - AWS: 8960-9040nm  http://www.airbus.com/aircraftfamilies/passengeraircraft/a380family/a380-800/specifications/

It can't be too hard to just enter the new data into the game engine/model can it?  I don't mean to sound pushy but when will this happen?  I searched the forum and there have been topics about this since 2010...

It doesn't matter now as 747-8 is end of production.

But for future game worlds it'd be good to include this.  Like I said, there have been discussions on this since 2010 with links to actual data and they still haven't been changed.

There has been a slight modification (increase in capacity) of 747-8.  Also, 747-8 was added to 747-400 fleet group.

As far as whether the increase was enough or not, I don't know, maybe not...
