Big Bird and Even Bigger Bird

While waiting for our flight in the beautiful Air New Zealand Lounge in Sydney May 27, we snapped pictures of a Singapore Airlines 747 taxiing past us and then past an Airbus A380 parked in the distance. Interesting to see the profile of the A380 looming even over the 747 passing in front of it.

Awhile later a tug pulled the A380 into a gate adjacent to the lounge. The closer it got, the bigger it looked. Those who've already ridden on them tell us that the interior is so compartmentalized that one doesn't have the impression of flying in such an enormous plane.
