Which of these planes do you like more? Write it in the comments. In addition to that please tell me which planes I should compare next. You decide !!

It` s time for another “versus” video. This time I would like to know if you prefere the Boeing 747-8 or the Airbus A340-600. The longest Airbus plane versus the longest Boeing plane. I don` t have an opinion about this one cause I like both, the A346 and the B747-8.

The launch customer of the Boeing 747-8 was Lufthansa. A total of 127 planes have been built within the past 8 years.

The first Airbus A340-600 was delivered in 2002 and the launch customer was Virgin Atlantic.

  1. Anyone saying the A340 looks better than anything Boeing makes is a euro homer. The wing design alone on a Boeing is better looking than anything Airbus makes period. Let alone the 747. Most iconic Airplane Design in aviation history. The only thing iconic about any Airbus is they always manage to make them ugly. Accept the new A350. All though it looks similar to the new Bombardier Cs series just bigger.

  2. Definitely the 747, there is reason why Boeing sold 1500 747's over 40 years compared to A340's which only sold 377 over 20 years. Every airline is getting rid of their A340 fuel guzzlers.

  3. I will give the A340-600 this, it is a sleek and purposeful aircraft, and looks like a racing plane since it has 4 engines, but for the, the 747-8 is still queen of the skies.

  4. GUYS STOOP YOU ARE FIGHTING LIKE USA VS FRANCE!!!!AMD YOU ALL ARE FIGHTING LIKE A SUMO VS SUMO,BOTH COMPANIES ARE GREAT AND NO ONE IS GOING TO LOSE, GUYS,LOOK AT YOU, YOUR COMPANIES LIKE AIRBUS AND BOEING, YOU DONT WANT YOUR PICKED COMPANY TO BE BEATEN! BOTH COMPANIES ARE WORKING HARD FOR FUTURE, PASSENGERS, TRAVELLERS, ETC.!!, YOU DONT HAVE TO FIGHT JUST TO MAKE THEM YOUR PICKED COMPANY ARE GREATER THAN THE ONE WHO LOSED, GUYS, BOEING HAD MANY CRASHES AND AIRBUS HAVE SOME DELAYS TO MAKE A380s, GUYS, you don't have to compete who is the winner, (sorry for the wrong grammars and spellings im a fast typer and i dont see whats the wrong one)

  5. The 748 is an amazing platform for both cargo and passengers. It is quiet, efficient and gorgeous. The A346 is the best looking of the Airbus line in my opinion. Both are anachronisms today with the improvements of engine design and efficiencies large twins are the future.

  6. Although the A340-500/600 is a beautiful aircraft, I still love the 747-8i/F more. Also why was the British Airways Cargo 747-8F's outboard left engine not painted fully at 3:18?

  7. As a commercial pilot, I would be thrilled to fly either one!! If I could choose….. A340-500!! For now its little pistons for me though 😀
