717-200
727-100/200
747-100/200/SP/300/400/8
A340-500/600
A380

Female:
L-1011
737 (all)
757-200/300
767-200/300/400
777-200/300
787-3/8/9
A300
A310

I would catagorize the A380 as a "DUFF"...the Designated Ugly Fat Friend. The kind of girl you have a friend hook up with so you can score with the hot chick.

My favorite plane too but I can totally hear the pilots saying, "Come on big girl. You can take off without shaking us to death."

Yep that is for sure. Espcially the A340-600.
And the 747 is for sure feminine no doubt as said before Queen of the skies. I really cant imagine myself talking to any thing as a male. Plane boat car. My car is big fast and powerful but I dont call it a guy no way its just not right. All planes are feminine to me.

As another "New Generation Aircraft", where would Concorde fit in on your list, certainly not as a "DUFF".

Not sure. Let me think about it. Perhaps a skinny strung out cocaine addict who is always hyper and running around like their hair is on fire. Maybe "Heroin Chic" or that too-skinny hot chick you think is sexy. Definitely not the fat girl in the bunch.

As Vince Vaughn said in "Wedding Crashers" about a woman's chest...Are they built for comfort or are they built for speed?

A380=Comfort
Concorde=Speed

I generally find aircraft with rear-mounted engines to be more masculine. That includes all narrowbodies with rear-mounted engines. For widebody trijets, the DC-10/MD-11 in-line duct looks more masculine than the L-1011's S-duct. The 727 also has an S-duct, but the other two engines make it look more masculine IMO.

For the A340, the RR engines on the 500/600 make the aircraft look more masculine IMO. For the 747 and A380, I just think as them as masculine.

Now as the Concorde was so difficult and touchy to work with it must be feminine, whereas the VC-10 was a pleasure to work with so that must make it masculine

It is definitely feminine, it's all hips and ass.....especially the -500  Wink

All civilian aircraft are female, that is just the way it is.....
The Concorde is the 'Kate Moss' of the aviation world, skinny & kinda awkward from some angles, yet everyone still wants to ride her just to say they've ridden her...

I would see the A380 as a big girl with a nice fat bottom. She could have a cute face like her sisters (A318/319/320/321) if she wasn't so damn fat.

The A380 reminds me of the joke about the difference between riding a moped or dating a fat girl, except you wouldn't mind your friends seeing you on the A380.

LOL...

Now for Embraers I would categorize the ERJ-135 and 145 as females.

Same here, although I might call Concorde "male." Other than that, all female...

The 747, no matter which model, is very masculine, very proud, alot like a male. However, I will definitely agree with you; She is the Queen of the Sky.

Male:
757/767
777
707
DC-10/MD-11

Female
DC-9/MD-80
Tristar
747
727
