Mon Nov 02, 2009 9:34 pm

Please delete if this post has already been put up..

Just a quick poll, do poeple generally prefer Airbus or Boeing? And if they are sided to a manufacturer, why do you prefer your choice of manufacturer to the other one?

See how many people can comment on this one.

Let everyone know what you think. Cheers  Smile

In general I prefer Airbus. Its products are well engineered and I like the range from the A319 all the way upto the A380.

I do like the Boeing 737 and 777 also though. The B747 used to be a favourite of mine and still is but the A380 is better IMHO.

In general I prefer Airbus, partly because of the 2-4-2 wide-body cabin layouts, but mainly because overall their aircraft range is quieter - although I have yet to sample the A380 and find out for myself if it's 'too quiet'. The Boeing 767 is another of my favorites for the same reason; the comparatively spacious 2-3-2 seating. Shorthaul I don't overly mind, but the Airbus again has a nicer cabin.

Embraers are also very comfortable, as are the Dashes.

From a passenger perspective I have no preference, although I am still a little wary that 'software' is in overall command rather then those in 0A and 0B.

From a crew perspective (I'm not crew, but based on Level D simulators) it has to be a Boeing. Nothing better than a real control column and yoke in front of you.

The side sticks on the Airbus' should be accessorised with a coin slot and a flashing 'Game Over' message on the LCDs upon landing.

Boeing. Always have been a Boeing man, and always will be. The 777 is my favourite commercial aircraft, followed very closely by the best looking subsonic airliner in the world, the 747. If I had the choice between having a flight on the 777/747 or A330/A340/A380, the Boeing pair win every time.

Just to be contrarian, I'm going to say McDonnell Douglas.  Smile Seriously, though, if I have the opportunity to fly on a DC-9/MD-80/MD-90 I try to pick that over the same old 737s and A320s.

For Airbus vs. Boeing, I have no strong preference for either one.

Personally i prefer Airbus Aircraft for long haul, and boeing aircraft for short haul. I do like the 747-400 over the A340-3,5,6. I root for boeing though, because of nationalistic preferences.

I prefer Airbus.

The A32X models are more roomy than the 737/757.

The A330 to A380 are much quieter inside than the 767 to 777, however I do like the 2-3-2 in the back of a 767, thats real nice.

I tried the A380 this summer and I have to say its very comfortable. ( I have to admit, that i had the window seat in the row behind the Exit row, that means no seat in front of me.. Wink
Quiet and smooth ride. But I have o admit it's almost too big. a little shake sometimes it's a nice and authentic feel while flying.. Wink

Overall i like the A330/A340. The seating layout is nice and they're quiet. I also like the looks of the A330.

Last Christmas i flew to California on KL 744 combi and it felt rather noisy and dated. I think the 744 is an awesome aircraft, but it's getting old.

On short-haul, i don't care vary much. I recently flew to AMS on a KL F70, second last row
which was a nice and welcome change to the standard A319/20 / B733/4/5/7/8.

Comfort, high marks to Airbus A332, A333 and the experience of flying in the A346, AAA+++
The A380 freaks me out...too much plastic for such a large bird...its ugly too!...needs a 60 foot plug and a new nose...reminds me of Cessna Citation noses.

The 747-8 however will prove to be a challenger to the A380. While sales currently are slow, I believe 10 copies have already been sold as Private/Corporate versions and in the good old fashion of Boeing, sales will take off after she proves herself. My personal feeling is the 747 series has been the best airliner of all times. I like the technological aspect (mechanically speaking) that /airbus incorporates into its airframes. Not crazy about all the automation however. I feel they should install a "switch to manual" button next to the "ditch" button. Both manufacturers score high in best looking airframe,...A/Bus=A346, Boeing=747.

I don't know why so many people rate the A346. Personally, I think it looks too l-o-n-g. The 346 was a stretch too far, in my opinion. I think the best looking of the A340 series is the A345. A342 is too short, A342 and A343 has tiny "hairdryer" engines, A346 is too long, leaving the A345 as the one having just the perfect proportions and decently sized engines.

None of which is better looking than the 744, though :P

For short haul the 319/320/321 is most spacious and quieter than the 737 especially in economy class. For longer trips I like the 346 it's quieter than the 747 but if something goes wrong I don't think anything is as strong as the 747. The 767 is very comfortable and the 2-3-2 is better than the 2.4.2 of the 330 or the 3.3.3 or 3.4.3 of the 777. But over lots of water I like to see 2 engines on each wing so I will go for a 340 or 747 any day over a 767/777 or 330

I really love Boeing, specially the 767. With winglets now, it's even more good looking than before. I also find the 2-3-2 in Y much better then the 2-4-2, 3-3-3 or 3-4-3 configurations.
Still, the 777 is my second favorite aircraft. Nothing beats those huge engines and the very wide feeling of its interiors.
But, talking about narrowbodies, I'll go with Airbus. The 737 is a great looking aircraft, but the A320 family has a more comfortable interior, in my passenger view. The A330 and A340 are also fine aircrafts, but I still prefer the Made in Seattle widebodies.
In general, I believe I'm a Boeing man. But with nothing against Airbus. I Really like the competition!
Unfortunately I haven't flown on E-jets or Bombardiers yet.

A320 over B737 any day. Reasons being generally a little more spacious and the windows are higher.

A330 vs B777? Not much in it. B777 is a superb aircraft and I would give it the edge, but love the A330.

For the ride the A300 won, for looks the A340-600, for toughness the DC-9. But for pure class and awe the 747 will never be replaced.

Despite the length of the A346, you know if it looks good it most likely flies good. Kind of like the P-51, good design, good performance. The 345 is in their...can't argue that. I'm very eager to see the 748 take to the skies more so than the 787. Strange as it may seam...the 747 to me has always set the bar the highest and apparently is going to do it again, even with sluggish sales, I believe it will be a winner given time and its performance will speak for itself...j

Looks like everyone (myself included) likes the Boeing 767 for the 2-3-2 cabin layout.
I've read reports which stated in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Boeing extensively interviewed passengers to get their opinion of what they could do to improve on the comfort and practicality of the passenger cabin. This inspired the twin aisle 2-3-2 ecomony cabin, drop-down center-cabin stowage bins, vacuum toilets and mid-cabin lavatories. Many 'firsts', or at least firsts for a smaller airplane than a DC10/L1011/747.

For single aisle 3-3 cabin aircraft, I would have to give Airbus the edge for greater comfort with the slightly wider cabin in the 319/320 than Boeings 727/737/757.

Out of Airbus 330, Airbus 340, Boeing 747 and Boeing 777, I would have to give it some thought. These are all nice airplanes. Of couse if it were a classic 747-100/200, that would be my immediate preference!

A380? Sorry, no interest to fly in it, no interest to even look at it. That is one of the most hideous things ever made.


I guess in the end, I would have to choose Boeing, for building the 767-200/300, which I consider to be the best airplanes to fly in out of all of them.

I'm a Boeing man. Boeings are sleeker, and more stylish than their generic-looking Airbus counterparts. The 747 is my favorite aircraft, but the QF A380 I flew on this past summer was VERY nice.

Seeing how I have never been on an airplane bigger than a 757-200, I cannot say which wide body I prefer. As for short/medium haul, I prefer MD. I was born and raised flying DC-9's and MD-80's. Even today I still fly the DC-9's all the time. I've flow both the 737 and A320 series aircraft. I personally think the comfort in both is equal. I guess I will pick Boeing since they do have the 717 and that follows the DC-9 and company.

I prefer Boeing. Their airplane are true classics, real airplanes : the 707, 727, 747 and 757 are all beautiful.
The 737 and 767 look a bit too bland though and the 777 and 787 are ok just like the Airbuses.
Airbuses look a bit more just like industrial things, they have less soul. Except for the A-340, these 4 engines give it something classic.

Short haul: Definately Airbus. They offer more space and a much more silent cabin than the IMHO cramped and noisy 737.
Long haul: Well, the A380 beats them all being so extremely silent.

To fly myself, I'd prefer Boeing. But for travelling in comfort, Airbus is the way to go.

Airbus for me, both short and longhaul aircraft. I've always liked the design of the Airbus aircraft with the exception of the A318 (just too small) for my liking.

As far as passenger comfort goes, Airbus are so much more comfortable and quiet then their Boeing rivals.

As much as the A340 gets laughed at on these boards, it's by far one of the best long haul aircraft (from a pax point of view) to fly on.

It does - the 747 is such an iconic and beautiful airliner we sometimes forget it's not the best in terms of flight comfort. Compare a 747 to a 380 and I'll take the latter, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday - well you get it, everyday of the week. Airbus just seems to make aircraft that are more pleasant for the passenger. Similarly, I love the width and spaciousness of a 777, but heck Boeing, make it quieter inside!

Boeing 744 and 772 are pretty amazing machines, and I fly them every chance I can. I hope, in the future, to be able to fly the 748 as well. Hello Lufthansa!! I have only flown on the Airbus 319, 320, 321, and they are fine machines. Lets face it: any machine that either manufacturer puts out there is going to be a really nice plane. Pilots may prefer one over the other, in terms of type, but honestly, one can't go wrong flying a big, beautiful Boeing or hopping on-board a efficient, comfortable Airbus.
I love dem planes....

I prefer Boeing myself. All the "noises" associated with Airbuses are a tad unnerving. The noises i'm speaking of are the hydraulic pumps and what not. The 717 is one of my favorites. Though many would contest that the 717 is a MD. I would have to agree with them.  duck

I am Boeing all the way, mainly because of the 777. Nothing beats the spaciousness of the Boeing Signature interior. It feels so roomy and much less claustrophobic than any of the Airbus widebodies, which all have overhead bins designed for narrow-bodies IMO. I do agree that the 777 is very loud but this doesn't really bother me for some reason.

And hypothetically, if I was I a pilot, I don't know how well I could control an Airbus side stick with my left hand considering I'm right handed. I would just feel much more comfortable with a yoke.

Yes, this was a nice surprise on my first A332 flight. Very unsettling indeed!

RE: Airbus Or Boeing - What Do You Prefer?

I prefer the 767, then 747, then 777. Only flown the 319 & 320 in Airbus family. Prefer the wheel and yoke to the joystick, although I'm not a pilot.
Not as easy as originally perceived

I definitely prefer Boeing a/c.
Why?
1) They have a better look:
- NB: the 737 is so grateful with its winglets compared to the A320 which is so plain
- WB: the 777 looks so fantastic with its huge engines and its wingtips, compared to its Airbus competitors (the A343 has hair dryers under its wings Wink , the A346 is too long and thin, the A330 looks good though)
- VLA: the 747 is the most graceful a/c in the air, contrary to the A380

2) They have a better interior
The WB are wider (except the A380). The 777 is less claustrophobic than the A330/A340, and it has the most beautiful interior of all airplanes. The Airbus are too much "plastic" inside.
The 767 has a fantastic layout.

Shorthaul: I prefer the Boeing 737 (especially the NG series) but soon I'll be a F/O on the A320!

Longhaul: Again prefer Boeing (747, 767 or 777) but the A340 is also nice. Don't like the A330 or A380.
