Am I the only one that like Airbus to such an extent that it would try to balance time flown on Boeings vs time flown on Airbuses?

Because it is nearly equal (147.25 hours on Airbuses vs 145.9 hours on Boeings)...

Yes.


Different VAs = different piloting backgrounds.

I have been at several VAs; even a Virtual OneWorld member that wanted to hide its identity wasn't that much on the Boeing side (even if the only Airbus aircraft in it was used on shorthaul ops).

All my previous VAs were more sympathetic towards Airbus than this one. And there must be other Airbus buffs in the VA that did not state their intentions yet.

Quite possibly.

I choose my flights most of the time based on where I want to fly, not based on the aircraft.

I choose by duration. The shorter, the better! If I'm in the mood for a longhaul, I like it rather long so it can go overnight.

Obviously:
A330
A32x
777-300ER

though the A380 has been growing on me too. Let's face it. All Boeing planes are 707 modified to different lengths and widths. They all have that same standard look.

Wow, completely opposite! Just the noses give their differences away.

Airbuses are all modified A300s. The A320S is srunken, the 330s are slightly lengthened and have winglets, the 340s have an extra set of engines on the 330s, and the 380s are just stretched way tall, like the Beluga.

There's are very few similarities aside from maybe aisle width between the 707 and 727. The 757 and 767 are similar, and the 777 is really a larger 767 essentially, but non share any characteristics with the 707. The 737 is sort of like the 727 but it's much more toned down, not so unique. The 747 is in a class all by itself, nothing is really like it. The 717 is not a Boeing...

Well, yeah, the 310 is just a short, stubby A300.
