Differences between Boeing and Airbus

Earlier today we asked if you can differentiate between a Boeing aircraft and an airbus aircraft.  Aviation experts, pilots, flight and cabin crew can easily spot the differences but hard for most passengers. There are 3 major ways of spotting the difference when watching them closeby. Below are few differences between these two giants aircraft birds

Firstly, the Boeing aircraft has a pointy noise, while Airbus crafts have round bulbous nose.

Secondly, the cockpit windows of Boeing family are diagonal while that of Airbus are more of a square.
