Small list, for now:
Lockheed Super Constellation (if SAC is offering rides, I'm takin' one!)
Convair CV-880 (again, if the Convair restoration team will offer rides, I'll be first in line)

Some rare ones still missing from my collection:
I guess I won't get a chance to fly with them one day...
I see better chances for these ones:
DC-3 (still a couple of them around, even in Europe)
Ju-52 (LH Historic Flight)
I'd like to fly again on the L10 - my last flight on a TriStar was in 1993 - but I doubt this will happen.
Don't really care about Russian aircraft types... although this does NOT mean that I think they are unsafe.

VC-10, (have to be RAF so no real chance there), 707, DC-8, any Convairs that get restored, IL-62, IL-18, Connie, DC-props, though I've flown on a DC-3, L-188, Twin Otter, Dash 7.
Though I've flown on Concorde 5 times, I plan to again, maybe an AF one this time.

Concorde, of course, but it is a dream.
To be realistic, I would like to try the only 2 types of western jets I have never tried:
777 and 747.
There is a good chance I will discover Emirates 777 mid Feb.
There are 3 jets I would have been happy to fly: the Comet, the Mercure and the Trident.

I have always wanted to fly an old 707, however that may be impossible to do these days, but I can still wish. If some one were to offer that kind of service in the America's I would jump on it.

Wow, you spotter types really need to make the difference between "fly" and "ride on." Two very very different things. Such as, this weekend, I will
fly a Beech Duchess. Next time I go to the east coast, I will ride on some type of airliner.

Ahh, now what I want to fly on!
Convair CV-990 (yes, I know I have a fat chance! )
McDonnell Douglas MD-90
Airbus A330, 340, and when it eventually pops out definitely the A380
