I personally love the -300. I think it is very comfortable and i would choose this plane on any routes over water or between 3-7 hours. After those 7 hours, i would go up to the 747 or 777.

I heard that it is kinda sluggish getting up to cruise, but i dont know really if that is true. My dad loved flying it. He said its an overall nice plane.

I've never had a bad experience with the 767-300. And as far as I can tell (especially compared to the DC-10) it's a rocketship getting up to altitude.

One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

I love the 767 too, both the -200 and the -300. It's the biggest twin jet i've been on so i can't compare it to the 777 or the A330. The -200 is the rocketship version, very powerful engines with only a short fuselage.

I've been on the -300 and -400 and loved it. Most of the flights I've been on have been packed and it never really felt cramped, unlike some other planes. Truthfully, I couldn't tell much difference between the climb rate between the two.

I fly on the 764, Continental's version. I love the BusinessFirst configuration and always try to get row 7-A or K (when configured that way) as you get a great view of the big engine (at least from that chair) and the wing. Then, when air borne, the raked winged tip. All very interesting. It is a quiet plane. I only wish the take-off had more power...like the 777.

767 is the aircraft I most frequently fly on, nothing special, seems to be a reliable machine

I flew on a BA 767; it was a beautiful plane, very comfortable even though every seat was taken. It's an honest, hard-working aircraft both long- and short-range, which makes it my favorite.

Every time I've booked a flight on AC, (Halifax-Toronto or Halifax-London,UK) I always get the 767! Not that I like the 767, very efficient and quiet compared to AC's fuel-hungry and noisy L1011s.

My only sad remark regarding this beautiful aircraft is that it was involved in the 9-11 attacks.

The engine is the heart of an airplane, but the pilot is its soul.

I've flown on all three versions and I like them all(-200 & 300 on AA & 200,300,400 on DL). If I had to choose 1 over the other 2 then it would be the 767-400. Updated interior makes the difference.

I've flown twice on 763's (one LanChile, one Delta) and twice on 764's (DL). 764's rock! Interior is fantastic, and it's incredibly powerful!

I was on a -300 last summer and the a/c was great. The cabin was roomy and spacious. The a/c just had a comfortable feel. Great plane  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I've been lucky enough to fly on 3 engine varients:-

BA 767-300 - RR
UA 767-300 - PW
AA 767-300 - GE
US 767-200 - GE

I never used to like the 767,however I have come to like the plane,and in particular the seating,2-3-2.

I used to like using UA 777's,but have come to dislike the 2-5-2 or other airlines 3-3-3 layouts.

When travelling widebody longhaul i'd prefer any of the following over a 777 or 747:-

A330
A340
B767

I've been on TWA's 767-300ER a lot back in the day. Let me say they were very compatible indeed. Unlike every body, to me sometimes when the flight was packed. It felt like it doesn't want to push and also took a long time to get to a high crusing Alt. But that's just me. I like how quite they were too.

The only thing I don't like about Delta's 767's is the seats, hardly any recline and the seats were so hard! I Flew it on KCVG-EGKK and back.

My most recent trip on a 763 was in february (ORD-FRA).The fact that I am a B767-crazed put aside the increased legroom in AA´s coach class surely added a shred of comfort to my journey.
