I think I like the A340 too, definitely over the 777 and the MD11, hard to say about the 747.

Definitely the A340 - doesn't really matter if it's a -300 or -600 (have not flown on a -200 or -500)... with an ever so slight preference for the -300... Big grin

Appearance-wise I love the A345 and the 773. I think the A346 is too long and I hate the hair-dryers on the 342 and 343. The MD-11's nose is a little blah,. but I do like it. I like the 744, but it's not long enough, and I like the older upper deck better. Now if you had the A333 in there that would have been my choice.

As a passenger, I'm definitely going to have to go with the MD-11, especially SR's. I've never been on a 777, and the 744 is just too big, especially for boarding and customs, and the 346 seems cramped to me, I don't know why, maybe it's just cuz I flew it with VS.

When it comes to passenger comfort in Economy Class wins the A340 hands down, thus it is my favourite plane from the aforementioned.

I love them all, but if I had a choice for my next flight it would be:

MD11
A340-600 or 500
B777
B747

The reason is simple: Never been on a MD11 (only DC10), never been on A340-600 or 500 (only 300), been only few times on the 777, and many times on the 747. It doesn't mean that I don't like the 747. It's just trying something new for me  Smile They are all great planes!

Well I like the DC-10 and L1011 so I guess that would equate to a MD-11 vote followed by a 777 in close second and if the A330 that would be third

Nothing can match the 777!! Gaston and I have arguments about what is better, the 777 or the MD-11. (We all know the 777 is the best :-P  Silly ) IMO, its by far the best plane out there.

Here's my list:

-777-200ER
-744
-777-300
-A345/346
-MD-11
-747 'Classic'
-A343/2

The 340 series only due to passenger comfort in coach. I used to enjoy the DC-10 and L-1011 until some bean counter decided to put a fifth seat in the middle section, which for some reason Boeing thought would be great in the 777. Any one flown a 12 hour flight in the middle seat of the five seat middle section?

Seen from a passanger`s point of view the A340 is superior to all the others.
It is like gliding silently through the sky like ....

Seen from an aviations enthusiast`s point of view I like the MD11 most most...don`t know why, perhaps because I love the DC10....

Hi!

My votes go:

1 - MD11 - Due to the must powerfull take-off I've ever experienced
2 - 777 - The best Boeing, very confortable, you feel really high when you're on the ground!
3 - 747 - Nice airplane of course, but too big for my taste!
4 - A340 - Very confortable too, nice seat configuration but quite weak on take-offs

Overall, all these airplanes are nice and certainly love to fly in any of them!!!
Regards

My order would be:

B747 (especially 744  hearts  )
A340 (A340-600  cloudnine  )
MD-11 (self explanatory...)
B777 (-200 or -300... yum...)

I've flown on them all... I must say A346 (I flew VS) has been the most comfortable, closely followed by the triple-7 (SQ). I flew TG when I was on the 744 and MD-11 and I didn't quite enjoy it as much as the other airlines...

I'm still a huge fan of the 744, I just love that bird!!
