Despite the lagging sales of the world's largest commercial aircraft, the A380, Airbus just filed a patent for a new h-u-g-e aircraft. It's a double decker plane that has the potential to be configured in a variety of ways. It has not be given a name yet.
One of the intended improvements of the design is to allow room for more commercial cargo, even with a full load of passengers and their luggage, something the A380 is lacking in. There's talk of greater fuel efficiency and designing the plane to allow it to access more airports (the size of the A380 limits it to larger hubs).
Will there be a demand for this product, and will it ever be commercially available? It's simply much too early to tell.
