You can always ID an Airbus plane from a Boeing plane by this
method......All airplanes have antenna arrays mounted on the
fuselage....these little fin like structures that are about 1 ft. in size
with a slightly rearward sloping direction to them. Well all Airbus planes
(at least A318 and up) have one mounted just above Door 1, while the first
antenna on a Boeing plane does not show up until mid-fuselage above the
wings.....Ok OK OK...albeit you probably need to be close (real close to see
it) but check it out the next time you are at an airport!!!!

Thanks,
