Massive A380 Jet Visits Los Angeles For Second Time

An Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger aircraft, has made a second visit to Los Angeles International Airport.

The super jumbo jet flew to Los Angeles today to test airport compatibility ahead of Qantas Airways' planned use of the double-deck aircraft in passenger service next fall.

The A380's first visit to Los Angeles was in March.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is expected to visit the four-engine
behemoth on Thursday before 150 passengers take off for a two-hour
demonstration flight.

An Airbus-Qantas flight crew is scheduled to fly the jet to Sydney, Australia, on Friday.

The French-made A380s can carry more than 800 passengers if configured for a single coach class or about 550 in a three-class cabin configuration.
