Emirates Releases New A380 Configuration with 615 Seats

Over the weekend, Emirates airline unveiled a new Airbus A380 configuration outfitted with 615 seats.

“For those keeping score, that is the most ever,” writes aviation blogger Gilbert Ott.

Currently Air France A380s fly the largest capacity configuration in active service — 538 seats.

Think about it: 615 passengers is like an entire town flying on one airplane. In fact, according to CNN, assuming the 2010 Census is accurate, this plane actually has enough seats to fly the entire population of Circle, Montana.

The 615-seater is expected to begin flying a route between Dubai and Copenhagen in December,The National reports.
