A330- One of the most beautiful airliners ever. No disrespect to the 747, though.

I vote A330.

I'll have to go with the 744. She's given me lots of pleasant flights and she looks STUNNING when you see her at the airport parked. It's just her.

My vote goes to my BEAUTIFUL, 747-400.


Cheers! wave

747-400. Even though I am mostly an airbus fan, the 747 doesn't fall into the A-vs-B fights... The Queen of the Skies has a class of it's own.

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.
