News from Toulouse is that Airbus has started final assembly of the high-density A380 which has been ordered by Emirates.

The official seat count will be 58 in business and 557 in economy class which gives a total capacity of 615 passengers.

At last Airbus will have an A380 variant which can easily outcarry high-density versions of the B777-300ER. As noted above the newer B777-300ERs operated by Air Canada accommodate 458 passengers.
