Our new plane, the Airbus A321neoLR, is super cool. How cool is it?
Let’s compare it to some of the most awesome animals on Earth!
Its engines are so powerful their force could keep 40 moose in mid-air against the force of gravity.
It weighs as much as 15 elephants.
It’s 9 times faster than a cheetah, the world’s fastest land animal.
It’s as long as 8 giraffes standing one on top of the other.
