This Is Why Jumbo Jets Are Disappearing From Runways

Jumbo jets are marvels of engineering which work just like a commercial jet airline or cargo aircraft. These airplanes were introduced in the late 1960s and were very popular for a while. In the past few years, their numbers have started to decline and they have somewhat, disappeared. Even though there were many innovations planned for the jumbo jets, their demand hasn’t increased but declined instead.

A YouTuber, Mentour Pilot, has given his opinion on why these models are failing to keep pace with their competitors. The host of the channel discussed the key features of both the Boeing 747 and the Airbus A380 and has explained how they differ from the latest models. He has also given some key history lessons on how the airline industry has evolved. Mentour Pilot gives a unique view of the industry and the craft since he is the pilot of one of these super jets himself.

Eventually, it all comes down to economics like every other thing. The clip has clear answers to the questions regarding these jets which once ruled the skies and are now dying.
