I don't care how you want to look at them or judge them...by looks, preference, whatever, just tell me which one you like more.

For Boeing 747-8 pictures, go here:

or of course the A380, pictured below:

I must admit that I really liked the looks of the 747-8.
In general, the 747 is a stunning aircraft. It looks very proportional and sleek, even though it's very large. This cannot be said about the A380 IMHO  Smile

I like the way the 748 looks! But isn't there a chance (� la 787) that the desgin will change?
I like the idea of the A380 as a superjumbo, but I really don't like the way it looks, (I'm not anti-airbus, I'm just pro-aviation Smile Smile).



Next flight: PEK-CAN

I've always loved the 744. So it's no surprise that I love the 748 more than the A388.

No one here has said anything about them being in DIRECT competition, but merely polled as to which one do the users of a.net prefer, i.e. why I said "which one you like more;" i.e why I posted this in the Polls and Preferences section...It is done all the time...people polling regarding favorite trijets...(727 vs. MD-11) NOOOOOO, THEY AREN'T IN DIRECT COMPETITION EITHER!!!! So relax and try not to "blow up" so easily, you're a bomb about to explode!!!

From what I am seeing now the 748 looks really good, and I am a Boeing fan. However, I prefer the 380 cause its a design never done before. And Boeing is known to change their design quite a bit.

Hey nice pics a full pic would be great but hey  Sad

Anyway, I would for sure go for the 747-800 looks  bigthumbsup 

But, also must say they are not both the same size, no?
Is not the A380 bigger?

A massive 747 with 800 stylings would be F**KING AWESOME!!!
if they made a 1000 seater 747 like that would be great!
but even tho the size difference as the question quotes "Looks better" I would Have too go for the 748!

My first flight was on a B747-400 and since this flight I loved the B747 family really.
The B747-8 looks similar to a B747-400 and so the 748 is my choice.

My username will give my answer away. Don't get me wrong; I love ALL airplanes but the biggest Boeing will always get my vote. Long live the 747, and thank you Mr. Boeing for keeping her alive.

The A380 is a lot more expensive than the 748, I'll go for the value of the aircraft.  Silly

Or even bette,r the A380 can seat about a 100 woman more than a 748.  Silly

747-800 looks IMO nice than A380.

The higher cockpit and pointier nose make it look graceful as it's cutting through the sky. The A380 looks impressive, but bulky IMO. Looks quite short and stubby (I know it isn't, but that's the impression it gives).

In terms of looks, I'd say the 747-8.

In terms of overall liking... good question! I just can't choose!  biggrin 

If you're asking A340 or T7 tho that's a different matter...

How can one compare an artists conception with an actual photo of an aircraft that is actually flying?

If you were comparing the B747-400 over the A380, then I'd say the B747. But I'm sorry, I can't compare an actual aircraft with a drawing.

I have no preferences between A and B but the 380 is just an ugly aircraft for me.
