Hey, some people have only been on CRJ's. Not me, my biggest plane is a 757. Could be replaced with a 777 in March!

So far, my biggest would be Boeing 747-400, sure hope to replace it with Airbus 380 though....

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Well if biggest means longest then 346, but the 744 "feels" bigger. Even flying on the 380 wouldn't top the 346 though.

For me it would be a B747 for biggest and A340-600 for longest. Both on Virgin Atlantic JFK-LHR-JFK.

Also, another 747 on Tower Air, but worst flight of my life and don't want to think about it

Substitute JFK for EWR and it's exactly the same for me!

Also flew on LH's 346 and 744 doing EWR-FRA-EWR.

Longest - A340-600, South Africa, FRA-JNB-FRA in 2005
Biggest - B747-400, 19 times on SW(2), BA(5), CX(2), LH(6), SQ(2), UA(2)

Like lot's of others, I hope to be able to put the A380 on that list at some point, but unfortunately, it will not be 2008 for me - 2009 at the earliest...  Sad

Flown on the 747 with United (744 and 741), Qantas (743, 744, 744ER), and British Airways (744).



I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
