What Etihad A330's do you prefer, the A330-200 RR, A330-200 GE or the A330-200 PW?

I like the RR engines, they give it a slender sleeker look, though it gives the impression that its underpowered so i am going to have to go with the GE engines that look in proportion to a plane that size.

I like the RR engines as well, makes it look a bit like an A343 with only 2 engines. The GE's and PW's make it look too much like an A300.

Used to be GE but AC and EK's 330s swung me over to RR. The PW is my least favourite.


A340-300 - slow, but awesome!

Definately RR for me.

Hmm, surprising difference in the appearance of the RR engines compared with the others. I understand that the Trent 900s on the A380 are a LOT bigger (as in physically bigger) and are actually bigger than the more powerful Trent 800s on the 777.

General Electric.
Those engines look powerful and are what the A330 looks like, beautiful.

Another question: why does Etihad have A 332 with three different engines?
