Everytime I see this picture, I ask myself, "what is so special about it?". It's just a cabin, It's not spectacular, and to be honest, it's not the sharpest pic i've seen. Ok, I'll stop critisizing my pic now, and ask the professionals why 1000 people viewed this image. I'd really like to know the reason, so that I can keep taking such popular pictures.  Smile

Cabin shots are quite popular in this site. Perhaps there are so many kids browsing here that never been on an airliner, and want to see what they look like inside. Beats me.

Yeah, what is it with these cabin shots? I'm not criticizing your photo, but I really don't understand the appeal... Search for the most popular photos of most airlines or aircraft and you'll wind up with a lot of cockpit and cabin shots.

Because you bloody advertise them everywhere!

I agree, the photo sucks.

hehe,

Yes, interior photo's are popular, and are few and far between. I guess its just curiosity - people can see the Exterior of an aircraft anytime they want, but the interior is alot more limited. And also if someone is flying that airline, they will want to know what the seats are like etc

yeah, it's kinda strange. This shot of mine is #3 in my list of most viewed shots, with almost 4000 views! Which is a shame, because I have quite a few shots I'm really proud of that have like 50 or 80 views...

I do understand why cockpit shots get a lot of views - but you get to see the cabin every time you board an aircraft, and most are pretty similar. Hey ho. Well, those people who are interested in getting lots of views - now you know what to concentrate on!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Well, Thomas, I have been viewing this photo every day since it was accepted - as you asked. But where is the money you promised me for upping the hits?

LOL!!! Da Fwog stop complaining. I have shots i'm proud of that wouldn't have a prayer. And i'm insolted at the reference that all kids are invalids. Just what kind of horrid thought process made you arrive and that illogical conclusion! You think that you being 80 years older than someone makes you better. Anyways, i find the cabin shots useful for people that want to know what they are getting themselves into. However, i cannot fathom why they get so many hits.

I reckon the real reason why the SQ pic is so popular are the the two grey haired ladies ....  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Hehe, yeah EGGD that's it.  Smile

Planeboy, you're views only get counted once so you don't fool me. Nice try though.  Big thumbs up

Thanks for the kind words, though I still don't quite get it.  Smile
