Last year I flew a Boeing 757-200. A beautiful aircraft, I think. The 747's are great-looking aircrafts too, except the SP. I think it's rather ugly, even if I love to see one, because it's so rare. Have you any opinions about how airliners look like? Please let me know

Ultimately, I'd have to agree on what I find alot of people think: The 757-200 is about the most beautiful a/c out there. Of course it's sibling, the -300, does not share it's beauty. The stretch just takes away from the pleasant shape of the 757. Some aircraft become more attractive with a stretch, like the 767(from -200 to -300;I don't like this new stretch of the -400), Saab 340 to 2000(very nice!) and DC-10 to MD-11, for example. Getting back to straight-foward looks, going either way is the A320 family. With the V2500s, they are very appealing, but with CFMs, the looks fade...

Best aircraft out there today is with out a doubt the B757. Sleek, streamlined and powerful this a/c is the corvette of any airlines fleet. For sure AA make theres look the best, all silver. Has anyone seen DL new colors that were unveiled in ATL this past week. They have changed them yet again.

Let's stick to Teahan's method:
Medium: 767-300ER (I know, the ERs don't look different, but the name is neater )
Large: 777-200ER (same note)
Regional: 328Jet (4 engines on small aircraft don't look right)
Medium: 757 (love the airplane, but it looks like a flying pencil. I'm probably the only one who feels this way)
Bonus: A3XX (two words: Flying Watermelon)
Thanks for posting a topic where its just our opinions. I like to vent every once and a while.

I think that how good/bad an aircraft looks is just based upon the angle at which you view the aircraft.
Same theory with people: if you look at say, Barbara Striesand head-on, you may think that she looks pretty, but if she turns her head, you might think that she looks pretty ugly, unless you like huge noses...
