A survey of 1,000 fliers by Airfarewatchdog found that 25% prefer the Boeing 777 (25 percent) followed by the even larger Boeing 747 (18 percent) and Airbus A380 (16 percent). The fact that the A380 was nearly as popular as the more familiar 747 may be due to the fact that the A380 is much quieter in flight. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner, which is made mostly of composite materials and contains many passenger amenities, came in fourth, with 8 percent. The workhorse Boeing 737 came in fifth, at 7 percent.
