Earlier this years, when I was flying to Los Angeles, I was blessed to talk to an UA 777 pilot at ORF, before my flight to IAD, to meet my 777 flight to LAX. He told me that he like the 777 better than the 747, because it was more modern.
When I flew back on an UA 777 again, after we landing, I talk to a F/A, and she told me that she likes 777's better than 747's, because it do not have a up stairs. What a/c do you think is more cabin crew friendly? Wide bodies and narrow bodies both.

The 737-800 has my vote as former cabin crew. I preferred it over widebodies due to the size of the aircraft and crew. 4 cabin crew was just enough to get to know each other and not to see the same person over and over again. Loved the aft galley, contact with passengers. In my opinion a lot of the contact with other crew and pax was lost on larger aircraft.
For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and ther
