MD-11....without hesitation!!!!

The MD-11 entered the market around the same time as the 340 so it never really had a fair chance. The MD-11 is way better looking than the 330.  Big thumbs up

It was the first plane I ever flew
It's sexy

I'm sad to see that the MD-11 beat the 777.  Sad

However, when it's between the MD-11 and A330, I must vote for the MD11.

I'm voting A330.

The MD-11 is unique, but the A330 is quiet and comfortable. However, I would have voted 777 had it been an option.

The A330 is nice too, but when compared to with a MD-11, it just doesn't stand a chance. :P

Have to vote for the MD-11... because it looks like a DC-10, but more kick-ass.

Who wants two engines when you can have three!?!??!

I would have to say, with her sleak lines, the A330 wins this one. Also, the IFE is better and the perceived engine noise inside the cabin is lower than that of the MD11. As much as I love those trijets, the 330 just edges the win here, I'm afraid! And now for the plugs!

I've never flown either, but it seems that the age of the three-holers is past us. Also, its power and flight deck are impressive. Long live the MD-11!

Definitely the A330

In every respect

firstly, airlines are getting rid of MD11 and getting more of A330...doesn't that mean that A330 is better???

It's swift....it's smooth...it's unique....it's quiet....it's comfortable...it's...THE BEST AIRPLANE AROUND!!!
