Airbus vs. Boeing 747 - What's the difference?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone.

We are headed to London this summer enroute to Portugal. We are getting ready to book our flights.

I'm a nervous nelly when it comes to flying -- I do not enjoy it at all. In fact you could say that I fear it.

My husband travels all the time for business. He falls asleep the moment he gets on the plane and never worries. He generally pats me on the head and tells me to do the same. I hold my breath until we land.

The dilemma is that I have a choice between the Airbus and a Boeing 747. I'm pretty sure I've been on an Airbus before, but have mainly flown on Boeing equipment. My husband can't tell me what the difference is because he dosen't pay attention to those kinds of things - he doesn't care. I'm afraid I do.

Is there a difference between the two types of planes for a trip 'across the pond' -- does anyone have a preference?

Thank you.
