Hold on. What are your arguments to support this statement ?? Those birds
you listed are the best  which AI and Boeing will be able to offer to
their customers. Do you prefer flying Il76 and Tu154 into AMS ? Just as an
example I read that AI is for instance reducing the landing noise on the
340NG. Also a 777 is a very quit a/c.
