To start, i wanna say that this thread is NOT INTENDED TO START A FLAME between the twin lovers and the quad lovers. Personally i have flown both many times and i noticed a difference in the smoothness of the flight. I flew DEL-SIN then SIN-SFO on a SQ 772ER. I was petrefied of flying at that time and had a terrible time while flying to SFO. Mainly because the T7 was bumpy and very turbulant. Let me point out again, it is a personal view nothing more!! Anyways, on the way back, i flew VS from SFO to LHR then LHR to DEL, this was done on a A340 and 747. Since both are quads and i found them to be much smoother, i was much more relaxed on them. Any reason why there is such a difference? Agreed both machines are absolutely beautiful, but i want to hear comments on this from others and thei opinion on the subject.

Btw talking bout heavies... SQ will be the first to fly the A380 right? and i hear its going to be on their Sin-Syd route? correct me if im wrong.. how do i manage to get onto the first commercial flight?
|Quoting Glareskin (Reply 11):|
The 777 flies smoothly in turbulence skies too. Subjectively you might experience the A340 smoother in the same air because of the lower noise levels in the cabin. Objectively this has nothing to do with how smooth it moves through the air.....
