Not to long ago, I put up a post about, what your favorite Boeing classic airliner. In this post, I only put in the 707, 727 and 737 originals. A few people thought the 747 classics should have been put in the mix, and this got me to thinking about if the 747 100, 200,300 and SP are classic Boeing airliner. So do you think 747 classic is an, altogether new generation jetliner, or is it in the same class as a 707, 727 and 737 original?

I absolutely think that the 747-100, -200, -300, and SP are classic Boeing airliners along with 707s, 720s, 727s, and 737-100 and -200. To leave them out of the classic airliner loop would be a crime against humanity.  Smile

Definately, especially when you consider its 37 years since the 747 entered service. Anyone else think the early A300s should be classics?

The 747-100/200 are for me very classic. Not so much the -300 (or -200SUD) because of their stretched upper decks and the -SP is just too much of an odd ball and rarity to be considered a classic.

One of my biggest childhood dreams was to fly on a British Airways B747, for some reason, to me that combination was the epitome of the Trans Atlantic jet set life. After many, many years and times flown over the Atlantic, in 2000, I decided to fulfill my childhood dream and give BA a try. May and June 2000 were with a B744 in World Tail liveries, then in December 2000, finally a BA B742, however being G-BDXB (the only B742 to receive the Union Jack Tail) was exciting, but the return flight in January was even better, a BA742 in full Landor colours! I was so excited about this, when I got to the gate, I told the gate agent that this was one of my childhood dreams, I got a free upgrade into Club World. Regardless of the upgrade, it was by far one of my most enjoyable of my Trans Atlantic flights. And that is why for me, the B741 and B742 are classics.

I think they would pass as a classic, if you are only considering Airbuses. If you say classic in general, then It's a damn close call.

I'm changin' my answer to that.
