Excuse me A330 and TWA but neither Tupolevs nor the A320 classify as ugly aircraft in my book, infact they are rather attractive. I do find the B777 & B767 lacking in grace though, but ugliest has to be the super guppy thing.

a319 hands down...nothing like a stubby little plane=P ... now im going to have to defend the 757, 767, and 777...they are all gorgeous aircraft...especially the 777 with the wings bent up...it really looks like a bird...

The 777 looks like a 757 on steroids. The A340-600 is way too long and the wings and engines look way too small. The 777-300 is way too long for me and I'm not to thrilled about the 747 stretch of the forward section. I think if Boeing was going to go with this they should've stretch the upperdeck to the tail. All others look just fine to me. I like the 767 but the 777-300 is just too long. I do like the 777-200 better though.

These three planes seem to be lacking something I have never found these attractive -Bac 1-11 , British Aerospace Trident ,Israel Aircraft Industries IAI 101 Arava . All the other planes in the sky are just plane beautifull .

The American Airlines Fokker 100 has my vote! It's Ugly, even inside the airplane that I was in needed a cabin remad 2 years ago! It was lould, ugly, smelly, and slow! The 717 will be nice when American takes TWA's on-order 717's!

I think the 767 is ugly in any livery and any version. It's just a really confused looking aircraft. I don't think the MD-11 is that great either. It's a little bloated for my taste. On the other hand, I think the 747, A330, A340, and 777 are very good looking, along with the 737-800 and the A32X family.

I can't think of an ugly airliner. Sure time can make some designs look dated, but in their time most of them were cutting edge technology. Some were ahead of their time, i.e. the Carvair and Breguet 763, so not exactly financial sucesses.
