The Airbus A380, which is the world's biggest passenger jet, can carry up to 853 passengers per flight. On the other hand, the Boeing 747-8 International or 747-8I can carry up to 467 passengers. While an A380's wingspan is 261.7 feet, a 747-8I's wingspan is 224.6 feet. But, when it comes to length, a 747-8I wins with a length of 250 feet, beating the A380 by 12 feet.
