There are those (esp from Seattle) who say that this aircraft is ugly. I beg to differ. This is just for those Boeing cheerleaders who keep crowing that airbus planes (in general) are ugly and Boeing's are beautiful. Apart from the fact that their refrain is completely pointless since the airlines care more about frugality than looks, they also seem to be forgetting Boeing's own Quasimodo, the 747 LCF.
Now, THAT'S an ugly airplane if i ever saw one. And by the time the XWB arrives, there wont be any competition for the looks.
PS :- I completely regret that rant, its just that all these pro boeing idiots that I run into on aviation forums are kinda pissing me off.
