The 777-300 is a very odd-looking airplane that looks like some airplane-nerds photoshop-experiment unfortunally making it into reality. I´m looking forward to some nice pictures of this type at Mojave soon.

are you seriously doing this?????
IMHO, the "me too" posters on here are very tiring. "Well there was a best 727 livery post, so I made the best A300 livery post." Why not act like adults in these forums, you need to be older than 13 to use them for a reason. Why not come up with an original topic instead of making one simply out of spite? You certainly don't give your post any validity when you state that is the reason for making it...

...and exactly like I said in 330/340 thread, to say which is nice and which is not you should look at a real aircraft, not a picture. I saw 773 only once, during Boeing tour, the Emirates one. A wonderful bird, while 772 is kinda "too fat". Still, it is all subjective, everybody is just to express his/her opinion, not to argue. But discussing a picture just say, "this one looks good on a photo, while that one looks strange".
As for "I´m looking forward to some nice pictures of this type at Mojave soon." - I wouldn't believe my eyes if I didn't see something like this in this thread...

//although very sensible to the livery applied. Egyptairs 772s aren??t very nice-looking (thankfully they will be dumped for Airbusses soon)//
Really? Well that is your opinion. I think the livery really goes well with the 777. Yes MSR did say they will dump them(which is sad) but they also kept saying they will dump their 747s from like 6-7 years ago.
Now back to your topic...I've seen a picture in here once of an Emirate 777-300 and it kinda of looked like it was about to split in half.I get that feeling to when I see pictures of the A346 could that be a problem may be at the future?

If that's true, what do you say about the A340-600, which looks disproportionately even longer thanks to its' slimmer cross-section. I actually prefer the 777-300 over the -200, that extra length to me gives it extra grace. I see the -200 as a tad chunky, though still pleasing. Ironically, of the 2 competing families, I prefer the shorter Airbus (A340-500) and the longer Boeing (777-300), due to proportional differences from their cross-sections. And I don't expect to see this type at Mojave very soon, way too early for them to be retired (the first of them entered service in 1998)!

On a completely different note...who the hell cares what an airplane looks like? I mean, it's function is to transport passengers from point A to point B as efficiently and safely as possible. Boeing and Airbus are not spending millions of dollars purely to design a piece of external "eye candy". Think about it seriously guys, a manufacturer will build an airplane, and an airline will buy it because it meets performance and operational requirements. Simple.

Of course performance is THE major deciding factor when an airline is purchasing an aircraft. But for the aviation enthusiast, there is much more to aircraft than functionality. The average person may care less about what an airplane looks like, but we do care!

I was lucky enough to see an Emerites 777-300 coming into land during the Boeing tour I was on. IMHO, it's a great looking plane. Every plane is nice to someone, and that's OK. I'd like to see AC with a 777-200 or 300, but they're going to be all Airbus soon Oh well. Thankfully, I live in SF and get to see lots of 772's. Can't wait til the first 773 comes in to touchdown on 28R!

People! Have you never heard of the term "TROLL"???? That is precisely what the thread starter here is...a TROLL!! You can tell this by the fact that he has started an inflamitory post, but has not responded to one single person in the thread. These TROLLS get off on this. Hell, he is probably tugging one out to this. Dont give him (the TROLL that is) the pleasure. Ignore him!
