Quoting Stitch (Reply 15): I'd be more apt to apply that to the A330-300 or A340-600.
I don't know, the A333 and A346 are just too thin for it. Plus the 777 is by design somewhat fat (or simply put, the fuselage is wider), so it qualifies to be the Flying Sausage (and I mean in terms of a really fat Bratwurst). The A346 can, at most, be the Flying Wiener Würstchen.
Or you can call it the aeroplane version of the old Trabant (aka Der fliegende Trabbi). Why do I mention the old Trabant? Because the Trabant used a resin-plastic based body (the material is called Duroplast) instead of a regular metal based one (such as aluminium).
