    The Airbus A380 claims to be the most efficient, but there are a bunch of other companies claiming the same thing, so I would take it with a grain of salt.

    The Airbus a380 is the self proclaimed “greenest” commercial airplane, as it has the “lowest emissions per passenger of any large aircraft”. http://www.airbus.com/en/aircraftfamilies/a380/ 

    However, as you can see at http://www.boeing.com/commercial/777family/environ/index.html Boeing claims to have the advantage, and offers statistics to back up their claims.

    A third site notes that the Airbus is actually 15% more efficient than the competition.
