Sorry, but that's not actually helpful to the OP. You linked him to formatted space, not free space with the default install.

dlamin517,

A quick google search (11" macbook air free space) brought up this result: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2627770&tstart=44

Answer: About 48.42 GB free.

did you take the default install options and install all the languages by default? you can also disable safe sleep and delete the save image to free up space equal to your ram.

The usable space on my 11" MBA when I booted it out of the box was just over 48GB.

I hope that helps you.

I've started a thread sharing my recipe to maximize the free space.
