777 or 747?

Recommended Posts

Bill, one short haul if you want call it that is United SFO-HNL which I've been on. Its an ER not an LR but that's still a fairly short haul for that a/c.


Cheers Joe - might just fly that route, next run!

I would like to get one of the two wide bodies, I just cannot decide which one, I like them both. One has been around for a while and the other one is brand new. Personally i like them both and I don't have a real preference.

Does anyone have a pros/cons list of reasons for selecting one or the other? meaning, reasons related to hardware, bugs (if any), flying difficulty, realism or else


thank you


Get them both!


I, for my part, prefer the 777 in all variations.

I think if they were 9.99 each, this thread would not exist. :wink:

I have both, but I've yet to fly the 777 again since purchasing the 747.

It's the curved display screens that get me, plus the fuel management that you have to perform. (despite the complaints from other users on the subject).

Definitely 747.

My 777 is scraped, as i never fall in love with her.

747 is better and easier for hand fly, sound is better, even cockpit modelling and texturing are better.

Overall - smoother, and more enjoyable simulation than 777.
