Since Airbus has about 30% of the market (approx), it should be expected that the "public opinion" might follow these numbers more or less. Hence, you might expect about 70% of airline employees to prefer Boeing. As well, asking a 747-400 captain for his opinion on the smaller Airbus planes is perhaps not 100% fair. Asking a 737 captain to compare a 320 would be more fair.
