Video: Differences between a Boeing 737NG and an Airbus A320 cockpit

Hat tip to the Bangalore Aviation blog for finding and posting this video made by the Baltic Aviation academy on the differences between the cockpits of the American Boeing 737NG (737-700, -800, -900ER) and the European Airbus A320 (A318, 319, 320, 321) families – the two most popular commercial aircraft in the world today. The video does an excellent job of showing the difference in thinking required by pilots for both aircraft along with the different design philosophies behind these aircraft.

So which aircraft is better and which one would you prefer to fly – the Boeing or the Airbus? Feel free to tell us what you think after watching the video!

    A neat video, to be sure. But the 737 cockpit utilized for comparison is not an NG (which would be much more modern) but, as the presenter says, a "737 Classic."

    Still interesting for us aviation nerds, of course, but comparing a 737 Classic with an A320 is a bit of an apples-and-oranges situation.
