correct me if i'm wrong,
i've not heard of an airframe recently designed that keeps up with the "good ol" B747. i have been told the B707 has a higher cruz speed, by about mach0.02-0.04.
it'll be interesting to see if the A380s will have a cruz figure that rivals a B747? the A340s dont keep up with it.
i guess not in this era where "ecomomy" is everything.
the newest (largest) widebody i'v travelled in was a 333.

i'd love to fly on both as i'v never been on a 744 or 772/773, & i'd like to see which is better out of 777 or 330.
in all honesty, i like boeing & airbus products equally - horses4courses!
