Default Gemini BA B787-8 and LH A340-300 side by side!

Two Gemini birds: one was a state of the art piece of kit adopting a lot of brand new technologies 25 years ago; the other is the new star of the skies adopting all the latest 21st century aerospace tech.

Lufthansa Airbus A340-300 and the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner in BA colours!

Just thought a side by side study would be interesting, hope you enjoy:

Those white LH wings really make the A340 stand out

I realize many like the 787 but to me the A340 has a style about it that makes it seem nicely balanced, sleek and appealing. Thanks for the comparison, looking forward to some more down the road.

I too have always liked the A340, still remains my favourite of the Airbus birds. I've only got one more at the moment...a Royal Brunei A340-200. I do have the Air Tahiti Nui on order now too...mrs asked me what I wanted for Xmas so that was a no brainer!
Also a big fan of LH birds with the painted white wings...and it's interesting to see all dreamliners all have this too! Shame LH don't have any on order, they would suit the livery I think.
