Personally, I find long, sleek airliners to be more beautiful than short stubby ones, regardless of whether it is a widebody or narrowbody. I find this particular aircraft to be the most beautiful of all:

Widebodies in my opinion. Usually the proportions look better.

Depends. For example (IMO), the Boeing 777 (especially -300ER) is just hands down BEAUTIFUL! Same with the 787, 747 and the 330. On the other hand (again, IMO) the 380, as comfortable as it is inside (flew DXB-CDG on one last month) is a chubby "dwarf". Many NBs get boring quite soon, but I've always liked the 737 (with winglets). Also, the 757 is beautiful. Embraer jets are nice too. Both E135/145 and the E-Jets.

Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!
