At a cost of $659,000, each bus has seating for 22, plus standing capacity of 80 with carry-on bags including space for wheelchairs, strollers, etc. There are two wheelchair ramps. The new higher-capacity airfield buses are needed to accommodate the arrival of new large aircraft, such as the Airbus 380, that will begin service at LAX. Seven international air carriers have announced plans to operate the A-380, starting in the spring of 2007 through 2010. The A-380 can carry between 555 and 800 passengers, depending upon seating configuration. (
