As a Sunday morning refresher I thought we could start another interesting and traditional by now a.net questionnaire. I would like to propose that we all share experiences in terms of the aircraft model you've flown on most times, including the number of airlines on which you've flown that specific model.
My record is the Airbus 320. I've flown this model 32 times with a total of 15 airlines. Here's the breakdown.
Air Moldova (7)
Northwest Airlines (3)
US Airways (3)
JetBlue Airways (3)
British Airways (2)
United Airlines (TED) (2)
Air Via (2) op. on behalf of Air Moldova
Air Asia (2)
Air France (1)
Myway Airlines (1)
Vueling Airlines (1)
Austrian Airlines (1)

Airbus A330. I've flown on it 9 times, once on QF A332, and eight times on CX A333.
The route I fly most often is PER-HKG, with CX, and since CX only operates A333s direct from PER-HKG, it's no surprise that I've flown on that more often than any other. QF is the only other airline that operates PER-HKG, also on an A333.
I do quite like the A330s, but only if it has the new style sidewalls and overhead panels. I find the old ones really makes the aircraft look dated.
By the way - shouldn't this be in the Polls and Prefs forum?

It seems that the Airbus 320 features in many responses, but impressed to hear from CHRISBA777ER that the Boeing 777 is second or third in his list. For me second place is Boeing 737-800. A total of 26 flights on 7 airlines with this sub-model.
I guess I'm one of the few that listed a widebody as the aircraft type most flown on. Living in the most isolated capital city in the world probably accounts for that, plus the fact that if I ever had a choice between a widebody and a narrowbody, the widebody always wins.

My third would be the A340-300, thanks too many flights to EWR with LH in the 90s and early 2000s, now I mostly fly AF or Delta/Northwest to the States
2nd would be A319 by now (only one flight with the A320 and one with the A321)
4th would be the A300 (again thanks to LH not flying from Berlin directly to the States but from FRA)
It will forever be a McDonnell Douglas MD 80 , Boeing MD 80 sounds so wrong

Of all the unlikely aircraft, my most numerous has been on the Fokker F-100. The reason is that my home airport, SWF, had at one time USAir, American, and Midway all flying F-100s to Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Raleigh, respectively.

According to my flightmemory stats, exactly 1/3 of all segments I've ever flown have been on 737s. No other type is even close. With my family all down south, and me in Chicago, I do MDW-BNA on WN a LOT. I think it's going to be more and more 737s in the future, with DL buying more of them and putting them on Caribbean routes, and WN soon to fly into ATL and hopefully MEM. In another 5-10 years I predict that 737s will account for half of all segments I've taken.
I wonder if any future aircraft type will ever overtake the 737 for my personal record?
