I always wanted to ask people. When was the first time you've ever flown? What airline? What Airplane?

I'll start:

Date: April 10 1993
Route: Budapest - Prague
Airline: CSA
Aircraft: Tupolev 154

I remember the flight like it was yesterday, even though I was only a child. Whe we acceleated down the runway, I could not believe how fast we were going. Once we lifted up, I felt my stomach "raise in my head"... Loved the feeling. When we landed in Prague, I remember seeing a guy "plane spotting" and I was thinking "Wow! That must be really cool to do".

Superior decisions reduce the need for superior skills.

Good thread.

February 1998

Dublin - Frankfurt

Aer Lingus

Boeing 737

I screamed when we took off, haha! Such a great feeling, and like you Vio, my head being squashed into me seat! Such a smooth flight it was.

Mine was in 1983, NCL-GER, Orion Airways B737-200. I was only 3 so can't remember a lot of it, but do remember disembarking in GER and flying back to NCL at night time.

Mine was in 1987, flying LHR-MLA with Air Malta on a Boeing 720. I don't remember a thing as I wasn't even a year old, but someone travelling with me got a picture which confirms the type to me, all my family could recall was the Air Malta part.

My first flight was in 1996 on a US Boeing 733 from YYZ-PHL. I remember it was my brothers birthday (he was turning 2) and they upgraded us to first class for the flight. I remember the F/A bringing me tons of cookies during the flight, and visiting the flight deck also.

According to my parent's, I asked the Captain "Where is the turbulence button?". I was a funny infant.......

Great idea for a thread, I look forward to reading more of these.

As far as I remember, it was SIN-HKG in Nov 1999 on SQ's Boeing 747-400. It had PTVs so I guess it should be a 744 and not 743 which SQ still had at that time. However, dating back years ago I have some vague memories about going to Indonesia (probably on GA)...

One way I will fly around the world!

Geez fellas! This will really make me feel old. I was just a VERY, VERY young boy.....
Capital Airlines. DC-3. ORF-ECG-RMT-RDU. Summer 1954. Accompanied my uncle and he paid $5.95 for my "child's" ticket. Loved every minute of it including the airsickness and volumes of vomit he reported to my mother I produced. I got off the plane begging my parents to let me fly again....airsickness and all. My uncle refused to fly with me ever again!
My next ride was just a year later and it was a doozy......California to Guam on a USNavy C-118. Twenty-three hours of flying with an overnight in HNL/Barbers Point NAS and a fuelstop and lunch on Kwajalein. I was hooked thanks to the great guys at Squadron VR-21 that entertained me for most of that flight.
Now where's my walker........

watch what you want. you may get it.

Very good topic idea!

I don't have any details about my first flight, I was only 3 months old at the time in September 1986 (my parents were one of "those people" - I cried the whole way) it was apparently BRS-DUS, no idea what type of plane, airline or anything like that unfortunately  

The next flight, that I have been able to get *some* info on was the summer of 1987 a 727 from BRS-FAO from what I've managed to get from my aviation-illiterate family it very well could have been this airline/aircraft:

CSA Czechoslovak Airlines

Most likely a Tu-134 (?) My dad claims it was a Yak-40, but given its small seating capacity it seems unlikely to me they would send it for a holiday charter

Quoting PlymSpotter (Reply 3):

Unfortunately I am in the same situation and they didn't even took a picture...   Although I have one standing in front of BOJ terminal.
The next flight I have a positive recollection of was a PRG-SXF-PRG in summer of 1984. CSA Czechoslovak Airlines, Tu-134A, at that time I was already addicted to the magic smell of burnt jet fuel and the NOISE!!!

Easter 1970, aged 9, Luton to Girona, Britannia 737.

This and the return flight a week later are the only two entries in my passenger flying log book (which I maintain to this day) without a registration. If anyone knows how to get them, I can supply the dates!

Memories - watching the flaps and thrust reversers (wasn't expecting the latter!) from my seat behind the left wing. A visit to the cockpit. Spanish farmhouses and their arched verandas on short finals. Writing about it at school later, with a brilliant sketch of the flight deck. We have a black and white photo of my sister and I at the tiny terminal at Girona with the homebound aircraft in the distance.

I next went to Girona 25 years later. That original terminal building was still there!

My mom says I was quite happy during the flight. However, upon landing in OWB, she was horrified to discover that my diaper had leaked and my seat was completely drenched!! So, if you flew OWB-BNA in January, 1976 on Air Kentucky and sat in a very wet seat, I apologize immensely. How can I make it up to you?

I didn't get to fly for the first time until I was 23 years old, in October 2003. The plane was a BAe-146, operated by Air Wisconsin as United Express. I was flying from RDU to ORD. At ORD I boarded my second flight (with a pretty tight connection in retrospect), a United B757 going to SEA.

I couldn't have asked for a better airline or airplane -- I take pleasure in knowing that there are doubtless people these days who would kill to have the chance to fly the L-1011, let alone with TWA.

Unfortunately I do not remember this flight as I was not quite a year old at the time! Fortunately I had the opportunity to fly TWA's L-1011 on other occasions as well and I do remember some of them, especially my last L-1011 flight, JFK-SJU in February 1996.

I miss TWA, the L-1011, and in general, plentiful widebodies at LGA and PBI (let alone flying between the two).

Getting There is Half the Fun!
