RE: Why Does Rear Section Of Airbus Aircraft Slope Up?

It's the same way with 747s.

Both Airbus widebody and 747 fuselages are straight on the top, while on the 757, 767, and 777 the top of the fuselage slopes down to the rear of the plane.

I don't think the Airbus design has anything to do with accomodating LD3s.
