    It is by far the best looking commercial plane - especially those raked wings.

    Quieter engines, better cabin air quality, higher cabin pressure(no ear poppings), more humidity(no dry air), and faster and more fuel efficient.

    if you are going to fly long distance from one continent to another, then this is the plane you want to fly in !!
