This aircraft does not compete with any other aircraft for market share. What does everybody think about it?

I like it, but I think its basic design is too old. Also, I think that the A340-500/600 (and possibly A3XX) will be some very tough competition for it.

I love the 747. It has proven itself so many times. It's definately my favourite Boeing plane. And it's my fifth favourite Jet airliner of all.

The one thing that stands out about the 747 is the fact that it can and has flown on 2 engines for hundreds of miles! Can you think of any A340's that flew a couple of hundred miles after having 2 engines sheared of the wing? Well............didn't think so!
