767-300ER: I've been lucky to make some short flights on it and boy does that thing have performance with a light load; flew it with KLM on LHR-AMS and we rocketed off the ground after only a few thousand feet of tarmac! Also a very comfortable aircraft for longer flights, I've spent almost ten hours on one and just love the 2-3-2 layout.
...love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...
Not if its a non XM'd AC machine though... the 200's are worse. I was pissed at having to take one again last week, but then I thought it wont be long before 762ER's are going to be a rare beast, particularly with JT9's and we will be making trips to Iran and Sharjah to fly on one, so just sat back and enjoyed the history and the sound of the JT9's spooling up, as they will be gone within a month or so. The XM'd 300ER's are pretty nice, but personal opinion, the A330 gives a better ride.

Quoting Virginblue4 (Thread starter): I really love the 767 my favouite being the -400 version. I dont know why but i have a strange addiction to the 767
Kinda right there with you.
I don't really have a clear cut favorite. I have flown on DL 767-300 and -400, HA 767-300, AA-767-200 and -300, UA 767-300, and TG 767-200. I would say that the newer built ones of any airline would be my favorite. Love the updated interiors.

Couldn't agree with you more!

The 767 is my favorite aircraft for many reasons, among them that it is an honest, unpretentious plane that flies equally well on long- and short-haul routes. My favorite version is the 767-300 (ER) with the European-style four-door layout (two main doors up front, an emergency exit behind the wing, and a main door aft. The BA aircraft I flew on were very comfortable, even in coach. I also like the layout on the KLM aircraft, with their purser's stations and lavvys in the center section. It's a great all-around aircraft.
