American airliners often looked a bit more macho, in particular the Boeing 737 with its eyebrows, while the DC-8, admittedly had more elegant lines.
But the French Caravelle had elegance. A bit like Haute Coutier in aviation.
In fact the Caravelle even made it into the USA airline inventory. Though most likely not because of elegance.
But the time for these airliners ran out very quick. In particular in the Northern Hemisphere. But a few ended up in South America.
Back in the early 70’ I saw some examples in Ecuador with European airline history and had the last opportunity to fly with one.
So I felt a bit sad having seen the demise of the aircraft. Maybe you know where they ended up?
