My vote goes to the 767. 767 is quiet ( and yes, I know an A330/340 is slightly quieter, but I don't so much notice it, especially not with my bose headset on.) it's smooth, it's long range, roomy, but doesn't seat so many people the getting on and off is a pain in the rear end, and both in J and Y the seating configurations are ideal. 1-2-1 /1-1-1 J and 2-3-2 Y are simply the nicest seating configurations around. If the airline is decent, you can get nice 18" wide seats and often pretty good pitch too. 777 is nice, A330 and A340 are nice, but 767 is my favorite ride.
For narrowbodies, the MD80 (sitting as far forward as possible) is the most comfortable thing flying. If you are in the first 8-10 rows, it is at least as quiet as an A320 (and I make a point not to get seated anywhere even close to aft of the wings), the seats are roomy (i miss AA's more room throughout coach), and the 2-3 seating arangement is nice (again, seat yourself on the 2). It's about the smoothest riding thing with one aisle, so in my humble opinion, A320 and 737NG are nice, but MD80 is tops.
Quoting SkyWest700 (Reply 1): I have not flown them all but first class on a United triple seven is the way two fly.
Economy plus in the 777 is the best comfort/dollar of anything going.
The 777, especially the more powerful ER's on short domestic hops are awesome for setting you back in your seat.
Quoting Max Q (Reply 10): 744, Queen of the skies, nothing else even comes close.
I dunno, actually being on board the 744 is less than outstanding.... upstairs is stuffy with little storage space, downstairs can be nice, depending on the airline, but with 3-4-3 Y, the seats are narrow by widebody standards. I myself much prefer the 18-19" wide seats in Y on 777 and some 767s.

Currently the best airplanes with the best livery and the with the best passenger service are owned by AA. AA is the best airline and their 777's are the best airplanes in their fleet. AA’s 777 are super comfortable and flight attendants are nice and kind not like those on the DL aircraft!

ive flown on 320,333,717,72S,733,734,73G,744,763,DH3,DH4
quite frankly they were all nice to fly on didn't notice much difference between them as far as comfert goes but i did notice the 320's were slightly quieter then the 737NG's in flight altough they were a bit bumpier on ground while taxiing then the 737NG's. Altough I do like the Dashes Cosy cabin
Talking from the outside, I love the 777, especially on rotation, it looks simply stunning!!
View my profile for aircraft I have flown, as for a flying point of view I would chose the A340 or B767, I really don't mind either, but these are the aircraft I chose to fly long haul if possible. Basically I much prefer the 2-4-2 or 2-3-2 arrangement inside, it's nicer, and the 340 is quieter, as is the 767 in front of the wings. I have not flown the T7 yet, should have but was ill, so I shall have to wait another couple of weeks before I get the chance again and can then compare them fully

My best flying experiences in descending order :
1) DN ATR-42 - Superb seat pitch..and a wonderful ride...will never forget the taxi to Rwy 12 @ MAA...and the landing @ TRZ
2) LH 744 - My best economy travel experience on a widebody
3) LH A343 - Quietest cabin I've traveled in and one of the smoothest rides

Any of the "big Boeings".
The 757 to me is like the Jan & Dean song, "Little Old Lady From Pasadena". A graceful, elegant, and sophisticated looking machine that is absolutely RIDICULOUSLY overpowered. Anything that is not weight restricted out of PHX or LAS in the summer (except to Hawai'i, and that's stretching the range for most planes!!) just screams "EAT MY DUST!!"
The 767 is the plane that makes wide-body flights comfortable. No one is ever more than one seat away from the aisle, yet the two aisle set-up makes it feel bigger.
The 747...well, what can one say about the Queen Of The Skies? I fell in love with the flying football field in "Airport 75" and have never lost the feeling I first had when seeing this graceful giant. Long may she fly!!
The 777, though, has the best interiors. Twice I have flown the three-class set-up DEN-ORD, and twice I hoped the flight would just continue. The entertainment choices, the functionality of the interior, the "feel" of the power of the two engines...we have a winner!!
