Not to scale.

Cryhan Air, the budget airline based in Ireland, have commissioned the world's largest aircraft.

"People thought that the 777 was the biggest plane around," said Ryan Chair, CEO of Cryhan Air. "No longer. We've commissioned the 881, which will be massive."

Critics have argued that the proposed aircraft, which will be twenty-four miles long, and sixty feet wide, will be too big to fly.

"It'll never get off the ground," said aircraft designer Matt Carr. "Especially when you consider that they've not included any wings or engines in the design. It's a fuselage only."

"Getting off the ground won't be a problem," said Chair. "The plane is only for one route. The Glasgow to Belfast route."

Cryhan air plan on parking the tail end of the plane at Stranraer airport, or Glasgow airport as it is called by Cryhan Air, and put the nose cone in Carrickfergus airport, or Belfast airport, as the budget airline term this.

"This will be the most fuel efficient plane on the planet," said Chair with a great deal of pride. "People will embark at either Belfast or Glasgow airport, walk to the other end of the plane, and then disembark at their chosen destination."

If the plane and new route is successful, Cryhan Air will purchase a second sister plane that they say will carry people from a London airport, based in Dover to their Parisian airport in Calais.
