If that's the whole frame, then you're likely going to have to upload it in 16:9 ratio to centre the plane otherwise it will be too low in the frame. I'm not on my editing monitor, but it looks quite bright, so needs toning down a bit (IMHO).

As Steve said, it's very low in frame. It also needs a closer crop on both the left and right side. I recommend a 16:9 ratio as well, in which you can center the A321 a bit higher, to also show the parked bizjets and to have a balanced photo. On Flickr, it's showing me quite a large file (in terms of dimensions) and I would advise uploading it in 1200px wide. A bit more contrast will also look better. The brightness is passable for me, although a little less won't hurt. There is also some vignetting towards the upper right side of the frame it seems.
The overall quality looks good though, so that shouldn't be an issue I think.

Also, I noticed your EXIF on Flickr. For conditions like that (sunny, blue sky), I'd recommend shooting at F8 or so.
