Me too...Me too
The most beautiful plane i have ever seen. Great wings, great tail, fantastic nose, Clean Hi-Tech cockpit, quietest cabin...i can go on like this ...and of course the A340 also shares the honours with the 330.

The A330 is my favourite aircraft. I dont know, but ever since I flown on it back in 99 its my favourite. And Im going back on it in two two weeks to Port Of Spain Trinidad. Its the best to sit by the wings and see it flex on takeoff, in the air and landing. Its such a graceful aircraft.

Yes i'm another one!
You know, I can still remember that evening, in 1994 (although not the date!), when I went out to the end of 16 at Dublin Airport, to see the arrival of the airline's first A330. Loved the airplane then and love it now. Since then, I've flown the type with Aer Lingus (of course), Korean Air, Cathay and Swissair.
Difficult to pick a favourite, but I'd have to say BMI at the moment. Here's a few nice ones . . .
(Haven't done this in a while; hope it works. Prepare for my Homer impression if it doesn't!)

I love this plane as well. Flew Premiair from MIA-ARN in summer 2000. First A330-200 to be fitted with the toilets below deck. It frees more room for seats. Makes good sense to me and also who wants to be sitting next to the toilet and having peoples rear-ends in your face while waiting for the toilets. Not me.....thank-you

I like the A330 because it just looks so clean. The wings are undescribable. They're so perfect looking and with those winglets just makes them into my desert. Its just the most beautiful aircraft ever together with the A340.

I think the A330-200 is a superb aircraft. EK fly them daily into BHX from DXB and they look fantastic. I think the wing is a perfect design and I love those big winglets they have. Even the landing gear looks good!
I like all airliners, but the A330 is sooooooo much better looking than the early Airbus widebodies such as the A300 and A310. Airbus seem to design and construct very 'clean' looking airliners. The A320 is another good looker, although in a sensible and conventional sort of way.
The Boeing 777 (as nice as it is) really just looks like a bigger, fatter 767.
Of course, no other airliner can compete with the 757-200 and VC-10 in terms of looks.
