Airbus have said that they will do a stretch version in the future capable of taking 900 passengers (A380-900) if demand is there for it.

Feel sorry for the ground staff having to deal with 900 pax for one flight... especially if cancelled - that's a lot of hotel rooms to book/pax to re-book onto other flights! People complain at the check-in queue length for a small 737 flight to Europe for around hundred people... Imagine the queue for a flight of 800-900 people (especially at LHR T3) - half the terminal will be needed to check them in at some airports!

Will be an impressive aircraft if/when built.
