I could be completely wrong here, but I feel like the A380 is a little underwhelming in the game. When I say this, I mean that when I was expecting it to dwarf every other plane, as it does in real life. But when it came the 777-300 in my airport looked far bigger and better. I think the problem comes from the fuselage, and as we know the A380 has the largest cross-section of any airliner, especially over the wings.
Here’s a screenshot from Melbourne airport, a Singapore Airlines 777-300 next to a QANTAS A380, notice the size of the fuselage at the back of the wings, and just the width compared to the narrow 777.

Now here’s one from in game, with the 777 longer and even the same, if not wider fuselage.
As I’m writing this, I’m thinking to myself: “am I stupid, it doesn’t look that different does it?” However, I think in the game the A380 should be your biggest and most prized possession. I know Gatwick had to build individual stands to accommodate Emirates A380’s, even after they were already flying their 777’s there, and I think this is an example of that. Likewise, in one of my own airports I had a large stand with no jetbridge, and the passengers were boarding the 380 on stairs… so I think it should at least require jetbridge support, or different types of stair trucks.
Again, my central “problem” is how underwhelming the A380 is in game, and as an absolute beast in real life I wish I felt lime that in game.
This is just my opinion and as I said, I could be dead wrong. This is in no way a game issue, but I wouldn’t be mad if the devs increased the size just a tad!
Very intrested to hear your thoughts… Am I stupid for thinking this??? Let me know!
