Mine was from FRA to JFK sometime in February/March 1982, on one of Lufthansa's B747s in First Class - my father's company paid the flight, because we were moving to the US after his transfer there for just under 3 years.

First international was also my very first flight, from LHR to MLA with Air Malta in 1987 when I was only a few months old. It was a family holiday with about 20 people, but nobody remembers which model of aircraft we flew on.

Mine was LGW-RTM on 12th March 1971, 2 days before my 18th birthday. I spent the weekend in Rotterdam and Amsterdam and flew home on Sunday evening RTM-LGW. Both flights were on BUA, BAC 1-11's, G-ASJC out and G-ASJH back.

For me it was SAL-MIA-JFK coming to the U.S.
First on Taca from SAL To MIA and than from MIA to JFK on Pan Am
Back in 1983. Now what I don't remember is the type of ac that I flew on, the only thing I remember is that from MIA to JFK it was a widebody. But which one? a 747 perhaps?

LGW-MIA on CO (if that makes sense)
I know we were going to Florida but was only four at the time, my parents as haters of babies on aircraft thought it was rude to take babies onboard and since my brother wasn't much younger than me I had a long wait! They just went on holiday alone...nice! Thankfully they have made up for those four years of missed holidays in the previous 17
