I happen to think the 737 and A320 can not compare to the 727. The 727 is one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built, and it has a good cruising speed mach 0.84 for a jet of it class. When I see a 737 or a A320 I fail to get excited, but when I see a 727, I keep my eyes on it untill it out of sight. I know the cabin of a 737NG or A320 is far more advance in the cabin, but if you up date a 727 cabin to a 737NG level and use for charters people would rather fly on it instead of those boring 737 and A230 what do you think?

The 727 is a true classic, always has been, always will be. It's an aircraft that catches your eye and stays in your mind for a hell of a lot longer than a 737 or A320. Inspirational aircraft!.

HELL NO

Sorry but avioation is about being at the forefront of engineering and I would rather fly an A320 or 737 than a 727, simply because currently those airplanes are at the forefront

Stop living in the past, look to the future.

Well... no... can't really compare them - but that doesn't change the fact that I'd still rather fly on an A320 than on a B727... now... if the comparison is B737 and B727 and the B727 weren't so horribly outdated, I'd prefer it to the B737.

To be completely honest, I fail to get excited when I see any aircraft. I like watching them, but being 'excited' certainly isn't part of that...  Wink

Ahm... no... not a chance. First of all, 'people' in general don't give a damn what they're flying on, as long as it has engines, wings and looks like it'll get them to their destination fast and safe. Other than that, if your passengers don't happen to be a bunch of a.net-nerds, don't expect anyone to actually prefer a B727.



Smile - it confuses people!

I'd take a 727 any time and any day over a 32X or a 73X . . . truly a classic, truly a pace setter . . . .

The B727 is a great aircraft. Nevertheless, I prefer a brand new B737 or an A320.

Much modern aircrafts with better technology.

Hi!

We are talking about different types of airplanes and different generations! I feel sorry that in our days it's getting more and more difficult to see nice airplanes.....they tend to look more and more similar. And answering BA787 just one thing, you don't have the slighest idea how was aviation 30 or 40 years ago!!!! I also think about the future, but looking to the past sometimes "makes me cry...." how great were those days!
The 727 is a very nice, a great project, a great design airliner and I'm glad that I flew a few times on both 100 and 200 series!!!!
Regards
