I love the A330. It is so graceful and simplistic looking. It gives me chills when I look at it, it is so good looking.

The A330-200 is my favouite as well, mostly due to its high-tech feel. When you stand in the cockpit its almost like something out of a sci-fi movie.

I love the A330. I have no idea why but it just seems like the best plane i've been on. Twice from DXB to NCE and back from CDG to DXB with the A330 with Emirates.

I am a crazy fan of the A-330.

I have had the priviledge of visiting the Air Canada A-330 when it was first delivered over a yeara ago. A friend of mine works at the AC hangar in YUL.

I have also flown the A-330 twice between YUL-CDG AC flight 870-871

It is a great aircraft. If you ever fly on AC try seat 12 in economy. Next to executive first. Lots of space in front of you.

Hell yeah,

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.

The A330 is an absolute beauty...
(especially the A330-200)
BTW, don't you think all Airbus products have just a bit more elegance then their American rivals?

I like the A340 more, than the A330. Those four engines look awesome.

But there is one thing in common for both: The most elegant wings ever seen on an 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

Why do I like the A330??
1-It is very graceful looking
2-It is intimidating at the same time
3-It is Airbus
4-It is Airbus
Need I say more??????

The A321 is my favorite aircraft, but the A330 is second. It looks great in ANY livery, but US Airways and Canada 3000 make it look the best in my opinion.

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 agree with most of what you say, people...

It has some great looking wings and it is such a graceful aircraft overall.

Well-Done to Airbus... (for the rest of their
their A-planes too).

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.
