What was your first commercial flight ever and what do you remember about it?
Even though this topic has been discussed before, it has already been archived so I thought I'd like to hear it again especially sicne there are probably a lot of new members since it was archved.
Mine was EWR BOS.
it was in 1984 on People Express. 727. Do not remember the variation of the 727. I took it non-rev when I was doing customer service for them. I never flew before so I was very nervous, but I loved after it was all over. I love the feeling of being pushed back in your seat while taking off and liked it to the same thing as climbin up a long hill on a roller coaster.

June 1984 BOS-ORD-HNL UA DC10/747
I was ten years old and I remember hanging around in the aft galley annoying a F/A named Carol (One of only a handful of F/As I ever remember the name of). I though the stairs which lead down to the ramp at ORD were strange since BOS had nothing like them.

1979. Pan Am B707 JFK-IAH. I was 3 years old at the time. That flight got me forever hooked on aviation. And yes I actually remember it. However I was too young to pay any attention to names or registration so I will never know which 707 I was on.

It was in 1976, KIN-YYZ-YUL on an Air Canada DC8 to YYZ and either a 747 or L1011 to YUL. I was eight years old. The oly things i remember were: being in seat 6F from KIN, doing a lot of walking in YYZ to catch the next plane, and being so disoriented by the size of the plane, the time of night and my centre row seat that I did not realize the plane had taken off.

My first flight was in July 1991 with Lufthansa, back in the days where a direct link still existed between LHR and BRE. The aircraft was a B737-500, D-ABID. LH gave me a "Lufthansa Junior" logbook which the captain filled in for me (that's how I know the reg). I still have it somewhere, not quite sure where at the moment though.
