RE: Do You Prefer The A330 Or The A340

Although I've not yet been on an A340 I think the A330 looks better anyhow.

I've always associated 4 engines with the B747.

RE: Your Favourite Aircraft And Why?

My favourite aircraft is the B747-400 just for the sheer size always makes me wonder how the hell they get off the ground!!! And I always love flying on them too.

But I think the A320 is kinda cute.
