Seat configurations of the Airbus A380

The Airbus A380 has two full-length decks (49.90 m or 163 ft 8 in, the upper deck with a slightly reduced usable length due to the curvature of the front fuselage and the front staircase), the main deck measuring 6.58 m (21 ft 7 in) in width and the upper deck 5.92 m (19 ft 5 in). This allows for multiple seat configurations. While the A380-800 is certified for up to 853 passengers (538 on the main deck and 315 on the upper deck), achievable with an one-class configuration, Airbus offers the A380 for 525 passengers in a typical three-class configuration. The announced configurations go from 450 (Qantas) up to 644 passengers (Emirates Airline two-class configuration).
