I think I like the A340 too, definitely over the 777 and the MD11, hard to say about the 747.

Definitely the A340 - doesn't really matter if it's a -300 or -600 (have not flown on a -200 or -500)... with an ever so slight preference for the -300... Big grin

Appearance-wise I love the A345 and the 773. I think the A346 is too long and I hate the hair-dryers on the 342 and 343. The MD-11's nose is a little blah,. but I do like it. I like the 744, but it's not long enough, and I like the older upper deck better. Now if you had the A333 in there that would have been my choice.

As a passenger, I'm definitely going to have to go with the MD-11, especially SR's. I've never been on a 777, and the 744 is just too big, especially for boarding and customs, and the 346 seems cramped to me, I don't know why, maybe it's just cuz I flew it with VS.

When it comes to passenger comfort in Economy Class wins the A340 hands down, thus it is my favourite plane from the aforementioned.

I love them all, but if I had a choice for my next flight it would be:

MD11
A340-600 or 500
B777
B747

The reason is simple: Never been on a MD11 (only DC10), never been on A340-600 or 500 (only 300), been only few times on the 777, and many times on the 747. It doesn't mean that I don't like the 747. It's just trying something new for me  Smile They are all great planes!

30 NWA757boy : Well I like the DC-10 and L1011 so I guess that would equate to a MD-11 vote followed by a 777 in close second and if the A330 that would be third Zac
