Which is better, a ride on an Airbus A320
or one on a 757? I’ll be doggoned if I don’t know the answer now, for all kinds of interpretations of better.

The fly-by-wire system on the A320 smooths out minor turbulence, but the 757 is over-engined and can give extraordinary acceleration on take-off.

Take your pick 🙂
