    I agree, the 350 nose looks quite dapper on the 380!

    There's no helping such an ugly plane. Facelift and all, its still gross.

    I love it. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    I agree. The masks HAD to be put on the A350 as it's unbearably ugly otherwise. Now it's only ugly. On the A380 I do not see much of a difference...

    The A380 is not all that ugly to me that it needs the mask...the A350 on the other hand needs to see one of Beverly Hills best to fix the work of the engineer that was assigned to that design team..a mask alone just don't cut it!
