A330- One of the most beautiful airliners ever. No disrespect to the 747, though.

I vote A330.

I'll have to go with the 744. She's given me lots of pleasant flights and she looks STUNNING when you see her at the airport parked. It's just her.

My vote goes to my BEAUTIFUL, 747-400.

747-400. Even though I am mostly an airbus fan, the 747 doesn't fall into the A-vs-B fights... The Queen of the Skies has a class of it's own.

Very tough choice. I love them both but I think it is more enjoyable to fly on the queen. Hence my vote goes to the mighty 747-400.

So far the result is

747-400 vs A330 16 - 11 ! Pretty tough fight where the A330 could still come from behind. The 747-400 never had such a tough time before (they easily bat the 742, 343, and 772)

Voting till Friday 6pm CET

Rootsair, thank you for hosting these tournaments its very interesting to see what people have voted for.

Welcome,
I did this sort of tournament with 3 other friends of mine before getting memebership. I told myself that once i'd get it I'd organise tournaments to see what people liked.I wanted to see if people thought the same as I when it came to preference...the only one that hasn't made it out of those I preferred was the 767 which lost to the L1011.......on draw !!!!!!
