Thu May 06, 2004 10:33 pm

Well The A330 beat the A340 14-10. And the MD-11 beat the 777 56-54

So in the final of the worlds very first 'preferred Mid-Sized Widebody Championships' we see the A330 vrs MD-11.

Remember to consider looks and inflight preference

Also could you write either A330 or MD-11 straight away and then give your comments, so it is easier for me to add the votes up. Thank you.

I'll close the vote tomorrow at 14:00 GMT. Vote away.

May the best plane win.

MD-11
Having not flown on either this is strictly base off looks and im sorry but the MD-11 looks much better in any color scheme.

Airbus A330.
Reason? It's one of the most comfortable and quiet jets I've flown. It looks beautiful from the outside also.

The A330 gets my vote.

I voted for the A340, I voted for the B777 - let's see if I'm on the winning team this time around... Big grin

Anyhow - the A330 get's my vote because of it's 2-4-2 config in Eco, 2-2-2 in Business, compared to 2-5-2/2-3-2 on the MD11... and I think it simply looks better than the MD11 (even though that bird is a beauty as well, and the last of it's kind...).
Smile - it confuses people!

MD 11 Hands down.

The last and most beautiful trijet widebody (IMO). I got to watch the First Flight of the MD11 with my uncle, ( who was an engineer with MD at the time on their ACEII ejection seats) and I have loved that aircraft ever since.

When it comes to looks in any livery, MD11 wins hands down anytime over the A330 series.

A330

It is one of the quietest and most comfortable planes I have ever had the pleasure of flying on.

MD-11

Haven't been on the MD-11 but I have been on the DC-10, and the A330. So I guess this is based on looks. MD-11 is the most beautiful aircraft ever, IMO.
It's Scandinavian

MD-11

Why? Three reasons:

1. It's American
2. It's beautiful
3. KLM flies them

MD-11. Reasons being it's a trijet, not a generic twin and because I've always had a smooth & comfortable flight on them. Regards.

A330 - It's quiet, comfortable, spacious, and relatively efficient. It looks sleek, strong, and powerful too. There's nothing else to say....it's great.

MD11 forever  Big thumbs up

I've flown on both types multiples times so to be honest, the A330 is a quiet nice and modern Aircraft but in my opinion the MD11 is the winner and can take it up again
almost all the new "modern AC's" by cabin space, comfort, window size and not to forget the sexy body  Smile/happy/getting dizzy He is in my eyes the big winner!!!

I'm an Airbus man, and I love A330, but as I said in the semifinal MD-11 777 the trijet has much more personality (regarding its appearance)

The A330 is a beautiful machine for sure, in more ways than one.
But I would have to say I prefer the MD11.

MD11 gets my vote!

I mean, just look at this awesome machine:
