Do You Prefer The 777 Or The Md-11 (semi-final)

Tue May 04, 2004 11:19 pm

Ok so which Aircraft do you prefer.

Please consider the one you prefer to fly in and the one which looks the best and give an overall winner

The winner will join the A330 in the final, which beat the A340 14-9  Sad

Well, I guess I'll most likely be on the winning side this time (because I wasn't in the case of A330 against A340): B777.

Comfort-wise, there's really not that much of a difference between both, but I remember the B777 as being the quieter one of both, which is why I prefer it.

Regards,
Frank

P.S.: Yes, right - I just remembered (through ConcordeBoy's post) that the looks of the plane were the other part of the question... in that department, though, I'll vote for the MD11...

My vote is for the MD-11 here. There is already twice as many 777s as there are MD-11s. The MD-11 is now a rare bird, as a trijet & as a passenger hauler. And I've always been very comfortable riding on the DC-10/MD-11. So that's why the Mad Dog gets my vote here. Regards.

777 hands out...every category it has the MD-11 it beaten, though the MD-11 is a great aircraft, the 777 proves greater in my mind

There is no doubt the 777 is a far better aircraft, but as an enthusiast, I find the MD-11 more interesting. So my vote goes to the MD-11.

To me it's like asking, what's better, a Porsche 911 or a Mercedes E Class? Both are fantastic, but the 911 is just more interesting.  Smile

Going to have to cast my vote for the 777, although MD makes a very well built aircraft and does have a distinct look and place in aviation.

Ouch. This is a toughy. But I would have to say MD-11 because of the shape of it compared to the 777.

On the looks, the MD11
On the comfort, since I have only flown the B777, I'll have to vote for the 777 (quiet, huge cabin, a great airliner to fly in).

I have flown on B772, B773 and MD-11 many times... Three good aircrafts but one is definitely the best as a passenger point of view and it is MD-11!! Quieter than B777, excellent performance, excellent cargo capacity and VERY comfortable.

MD-11 also has very unique design and therefore I found it very attractive... I just love the personal sound of those GE engines...music for my ears!

Long life for all MD-11s!

MD-11 gets my vote. It has a wider interior and the exterior is different that most planes. There are so many planes with two engines on the wings, the MD-11 is unique.

From an Enthusiast point of view the MD-11 fro ma maintenance point of view the 777, but my vote goes to the MD-11 no doubt. Their are way to many boring twins to look all over at so anything sorta different: DC-10,L-1011,747,727 alwyas gets my attention.

While I am a fan of the MD-11, I would still have to say the 777 is by far the better aircraft. I have flown on both numerous times and I have always enjoyed my flight on the 777. One vote for the 777!

Well, considering the DC-10's (oops -- I mean MD-11's) tendency to crash and splatter bits all over the countryside, thanks in part to the redundant hydraulics all apparently run together in one place (unlike the L-1011, an infinitely superior aircraft in all respects), AND thanks in part to the ability of any centrifugal disintegration of the center engine to take out vital controls, AND thanks to the close-from-the-outside (instead of go-inside-and-seal) cargo and passenger doors, I'll vote for ANY non-Russian airliner over the MD-11. Chicago 1979 and Kansas City (don't recall date) or the disintegration of the Turkish airliner (also no date) are all the proof I need. If it's not Boeing, I'm not going. Heck, I'd even take an AA Airbus A-300 if necessary to avoid an MD-11. Pfui.

I have only flown the MD-11 of these two (Varig between CDG and AMS), but me and my friend were hoping for the B-777. So this is a tough question for me.

Well, I have to say something, so my vote goes to the MD-11. Just because its becoming a rarity.

Definitely the 777. I found it much more comfortable than the MD-11, and it's faster and more modern as well. You can't beat those GE90-115Bs!

The Md-11 wins my vote. I know it has a reputation as a bit of a pig, but there is something very special about the MD-11 IMHO I love it for its airframe design, its awesome power and performance (not in range unfortunately) and for the simple fact it is a tri-jet. The 777 is a beast, but why have 2 when you can have 3  Big thumbs up

The 777!!! My favorite, after the 747. The MD-11 is a great looking aircraft, and enjoyable to fly, but doesn't compare the the Triple.

MD 11 It's a quite rare a/c and I've never had a flight on it, so there is a bit more fashion. It's the real only last tree jet that add something to this aircraft..

Of course 777 il larger, quiter, more cofortable and tecnological, but my vote ges to MD11.
