For me, Concorde :)
A340s was pretty good though :(

The Ilyushin Il-62M. It’s brilliant. It’s one of the few aircraft that would use reversers in the air.

You want me to add it in ?

I doubt people would like it and I think I’m the only person on the forums who likes it. But I guess you could still add it in:)

Poor A340.Airbus meant for it to be its flagship model,that flopped, and the A330 and A380 came along and everyone forgot about it.

Do you actually like it?

The 747-400 has been retired and is being retired for some airlines though. I guess it could be added.

It brings a tear to my eye to think about the A340.

Although I’m a thoroughbred airbus fan, I have to go with the MD-11.

They are still in service, but old and a lot less efficient than newer widebody jets with 2 engines only, e.g. the 777 family or the A350s. Most airlines start to retire them and replace them with the above listed jets.
Lufthansa does, Thai as well, Singapore Airlines, many more. Sad to see them slowly disappear though, they are great birds.
