My vote is for Singapore Airlines!!

Pet peeve:

Apostrophes do NOT indicate plural!!!! If someone wants to be a writer, use proper grammar.

A380’s indicates possession, not plural. The A380’s passenger capacity is the largest for a commercial airline.

The correct caption should be A380s landing at LAX. No apostrophe.

Singapore wins!! The desired touchdown point is supposed to be the first 1500 ft of runway. Singapore wins touching down at about 1100ft. Air France loses. They landed more than 2000 ft down after doing a great job of floating. Obviously hot on final. I should know. Retired captain

Aesthetically? Air France.

Any pilot who manages to place over 600 tons of aircraft onto the runway is fine by me!
Notice how the wings are dead straight on approach and as the weight is transferred to the under carriage the wings bend down like a vulture,best seen from the rear.
