Poll Question:

Have you flown on a MD-80?

I have flown on MD-80 on many occasions. American, TWA, Continental, and Delta. I find the MD-80s a very good aircraft.

Yes, so have I, several thousand times actually. Then again, I'm an MD-80 pilot, so I guess that increases my odds just a bit!

I do too. Glad you like it!

3, maybe 4 times w/ML (my 1st MD-80 ride back in 1990), US (twice, back when they still flew them) and DL (last summer).

I was very impressed w/the inside of the ML MD-80; it was my first flight in over 11 years and the first itme that BOS was NOT my home airport. The flight was my first PHL-BOS flight.

The inside of the DL MD-88 I was on seemed to be more nicely appointed and had bigger overhead bins than the US MD-80s.

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.

Not very often, but I have taken two flights on MD-88s with Delta several years ago, and four MD-83 flights on Alaska just a few months before they retired them.

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

My first Mad Dog was AA MD82 N7532A, DFW-PHX. Does anybody happen to know if it's still in service? Last photo of it is from 2008.

More recently, JK MD87 EC-KAZ, MAD-PMI. That was a ride and a half. They're always hella' fun to fly on!

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.

And slept a night aboard an SK MD90 in Oslo back in... 2006(?) at the OFKL flightsim-LAN.

Have to say that these birds are better suited for flying people around, than accommodating them overnight though...

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.
