    No there is no live video last time I flew on one,

    the A340 and 747 are similar planes, the 747 is slightly bigger.

    The best planes to fly on are the 777's

    No, there is no live landing + takeoff. However, to the person above, Airbus is just as safe in every respect as Boeing. You could argue its even safer due to alpha-flooring systems, preventing pilots from stalling the aircraft or doing dangerous maneuvers. The A340-600 cabin is much newer and nicer (including chrome plated compartment handles and mood lighting which look great) than the 747-400 cabin (its a much newer aircraft) and its also extremely quiet, even during takeoff. However, the seats are tiny in Y, as on all Virgin aircraft. IFE is generous, but they come at the expense of legroom as there are metal boxes below each seat, blocking quite a bit of legroom (not great on a long flight).

    There is no video, but personal is very kind.

    To say truth, it is more comfortable than Boeing, but less safe. I felt so, becasue it was shaking all the time when there was a little wind outside...
