What would be your dream a/c, to be an airline captain on, and what routes would you want to fly your a/c on?

For me.

A380-900 LAX-SYD, MIA-DXB
747 300SP ( If their was such an a/c) LAX-PPT, HNL-SYD
737/A320 size turboprop with twin TP-400D6 ( If their was such and a/c) LAX-Baja, LAX-Reno and Island hopping in Hawaii.

May not be realistic, but those would be some of my dream jobs as an airline captain.

Dream command? NCC-1701E  

Far a real world aviation command I'd go for either Air Atlantique out of Coventry on the DC-3s or at Brize Norton on VC10s.

Nothing wrong with the modern Airbus, Boeing, Embraer jets but I like the old fashioned stuff more. If we can travel in time I'll go back to the early 70s and fly Tridents out of Heathrow please.

Well for me that would be flying SYD-LAX-ATL-DXB on Delta's 777-200LR(real route) but if i could decide my self i would really like to fly the same route just on a 777-300ER!

I'd prefer to go back to the L-1011 and fly turns. If not then the A-320 and fly turns.

Domestic pax flights on the 727 out of DTW. Freight is ok but we don't get enough hours in. Plus I wouldn't have to work the back side of the clock!

The DC-10 would have been cool, especially the old NW routes where they went everywhere from Jakarta to Europe to Mumbai as well as domestic stuff.

Well, it was to fly 717s for YX...but I guess those days are over  

Being a floatplane pilot for Kenmore Air would be pretty cool, though...

Well you already got the A320 so there you go! But I do miss the old days of the tri jets especially the L1011

Any route on a PMDL 757-200. NYC base.
Otherwise, flying a 737-800 (or -700) or MD-88 or DC-9-50 sounds like fun to me.

Alternatively, I'd be content flying a Dash 8-100 for Piedmont out of LGA on the weekends

NCC-1701-D looked better in my view ... damn you, Troi! 

I'd probably want to fly HKG-YVR, HKG-YYZ or HKG-LHR on CX's 77Ws. No real reason other than the fact that I love 777s, and YVR is my favourite city in the world, and YYZ and LHR are two cities I desperately want to visit one day.

For me, I would have to say 737-800 AA, 777-200 CO, or 787-8 UA. I love all Boeings and I would fly any of them if I had the opportunity.


The real American classics: LAX and Boeing.
