It is huge!
24 metres high, 73m long, 80m wide - potentially carrying over 800 passengers, but instead they've installed enormous business class seat/beds, and first class passengers have their own rooms.
Even it's economy-class seats are two inches wider and longer than a jumbo's.
Yet they claim that it is more fuel efficient in terms of fuel per passenger per mile than an SUV such as a Rangerover!
