    Thanks for posting that. It is cool and does indeed evoke the birth. I look forward to adolescence. The B787 appears to be quite nice, at least when you're not in economy, and the A350 promises to be as nice, if not nicer. I love competition!

    To start with, I'd say your grammar is horribly wrong.

    Hopefully we'll get a chance to ride both and can each come with our trip reports :)

    So what? Still doesn't make your original post more right... Or for that matter, something that provides me with any useful insights. I guess I am just tired of the never-ending Boeing vs. Airbus debates, especially when they are based on "looks" or misguided national biases. We should all welcome a healthy competition of innovative aircraft builders. Without it, we'd eventually be flying the equivalent of Tupolevs or Ilyushins.

    And yes, I like flying the 747, and I hope the 748 becomes a successful successor of the 744.

    We might also recall that all modern aircraft re multinational products, including those Russian, Brazilian, Canadian and Chinese ones, Boeing and Airbus included. Nationalism in this industry is actually quite silly, isn't it?
