Ok so which Aircraft do you prefer.

Please consider the one you prefer to fly in and the one which looks the best and give an overall winner

The winner will join the A330 in the final, which beat the A340 14-9  Sad

Well, I guess I'll most likely be on the winning side this time (because I wasn't in the case of A330 against A340): B777.

Comfort-wise, there's really not that much of a difference between both, but I remember the B777 as being the quieter one of both, which is why I prefer it.

Regards,
Frank

P.S.: Yes, right - I just remembered (through ConcordeBoy's post) that the looks of the plane were the other part of the question... in that department, though, I'll vote for the MD11...

My vote is for the MD-11 here. There is already twice as many 777s as there are MD-11s. The MD-11 is now a rare bird, as a trijet & as a passenger hauler. And I've always been very comfortable riding on the DC-10/MD-11. So that's why the Mad Dog gets my vote here. Regards.

There is no doubt the 777 is a far better aircraft, but as an enthusiast, I find the MD-11 more interesting. So my vote goes to the MD-11.

To me it's like asking, what's better, a Porsche 911 or a Mercedes E Class? Both are fantastic, but the 911 is just more interesting.  Smile

Going to have to cast my vote for the 777, although MD makes a very well built aircraft and does have a distinct look and place in aviation.

cheers,

On the comfort, since I have only flown the B777, I'll have to vote for the 777 (quiet, huge cabin, a great airliner to fly in).

I have flown on B772, B773 and MD-11 many times... Three good aircrafts but one is definitely the best as a passenger point of view and it is MD-11!! Quieter than B777, excellent performance, excellent cargo capacity and VERY comfortable.

MD-11 also has very unique design and therefore I found it very attractive... I just love the personal sound of those GE engines...music for my ears!

Long life for all MD-11s!

MD-11 gets my vote. It has a wider interior and the exterior is different that most planes. There are so many planes with two engines on the wings, the MD-11 is unique.

From an Enthusiast point of view the MD-11 fro ma maintenance point of view the 777, but my vote goes to the MD-11 no doubt. Their are way to many boring twins to look all over at so anything sorta different: DC-10,L-1011,747,727 alwyas gets my attention.
