I have not flown on an MD-80, but I have flown on a DC-9, MD-90, and 717, all in the past 15 months too. Guess I've caught the less common models in the family. I try to fly on a T-tail any chance I get.

I have flown the MD-80 many, many times........it is a great aircraft and the sound of those PW JT8D's is awesome. My favorite row to sit in is 29-30. Delta's, my airline of choice, are in great condition and the upgraded interiors are nice. I am flying on a Spanair MD-87 from VLC-MAD this summer, my first time on that type.
Every choice is a step, steps become direction, direction determines destination

MadDog? A zillion times.
DC-9? A zillion plus 1.
I went through the worst clear air turbulence of my 60 years as a passenger on a DC-9, all flights on the route were canceled after we landed, we could not climb above 16000 and could not cruise over 250kts all the way. There was marginal control of the aircraft all the way until we went below about 2000. Tough and beautiful bird; Douglas tough.

Flown AA super 80s many times. They are probably my favorite for configuration of the type, but have never liked the lack of IFE on those birds. The DL M88s are okay. Would prefer a 738 or a 757 any day of the week.
