The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by the European corporation Airbus, a subsidiary of EADS. It is the largest passenger airliner in the world. Due to its size, many airports had to modify and improve facilities to accommodate it. Designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market, the A380 made its maiden flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines. The aircraft was known as the Airbus A3XX during much of its development, before receiving the A380 designation. The nickname Superjumbo has since become associated with it.

So ,what is air sick?
看看Motion sick 的解释就明白了，其实都是一回事，晕机和晕动症的原理是一样的。
What is motion sickness?
Motion sickness is a very common disturbance of the inner ear that is caused by repeated motion such as from the swell of the sea, the movement of a car, the motion of a plane in turbulent air, etc. In the inner ear (which is also called the labyrinth), motion sickness affects the sense of balance and equilibrium and, hence, the sense of spatial orientation.
For many people, air sickness is a serious problem that affects them every time they go on an airplane. Air sickness occurs when your brain receives mixed messages, due to the fact that you appear to be moving and shaking in some ways, while in other ways you appear to be still.
Do not eat a large meal before getting on the plane. Eating a large meal just before your flight increases your chance of getting air sick.
Try to avoid thinking about getting air sick. If you do, you may convince yourself you are sick.
