I flew on an AA 727 in October '99 from DCA to DFW.

I also flew on a DL L-1011 DFW-FLL in June '95.

Doesn't quite count yet, but I flew DFW-MSP last summer on an F100. Those won't be around much longer.

I've also flown DTW-DFW on a NW DC-9, but chances are those will be around forever.

If you wonder why the information is so precise, it is from my log.  Big grin

A very long time before her withrawal, I had the pleasure of flying one of Eastern's L1011s, and a couple of their 727s. Pan Am supplied me with my first ever A300 as well. Dan Air gave me 727s and 737s. Air UK Leisure 737. Continental 747.

Flew on quite a bit of retired aircraft too, the most recent being JAL's MD-11s: JA8589, JA8586, JA8583, and more I can't quite remember.

Also flew:

SQ B742/B743
AA DC-10
UA DC-10/B741/B742
JL older B742s

That's all I can think of at the moment.

My wife flew on a Delta B727-200 from DFW to SEA sometime in early 2001. Picking her up at the gate and seeing a 727 flooded my head with a bunch of childhood memories of flying them on UA, Alaska, Republic, et al. Suddenly, as an adult, I had a renewed interest in airliners! Unfortunately, most of the 727s were retired by the end of 2001...
