My favorite was the Convair 440 on Eastern and Lufthansa. But since the Convair doesn't fly anymore, I guess I need to choose something more up-to-date. So I'll go with the B727-232 on the Delta Shuttle.

My favourite short haul aircraft has to be the Fokker F-28-4000.
I flew this aircraft once 5 years ago on Air Mauritanie from Nouakchott (Mauritania) to Dakar in Senegal.
It was one of the smoothest flights I have ever flown on!!

Craig. You said you like the BA757 I know a guy that is a BA 757 pilot. I thought you would like to know that.
My favorite short haul airliner are:
757 As it look really nice
320 I like the glass cockpit
737 (300 +) The king of the short haul
DC-9/MD83+ I only like these in certain colors like Reno but I think they are ugly in American.
Is that them all?? I just have a heart for planes.

MD-80/90.....everyone calls them long thin tubes...but hey they are great, a nice diversion from the 3-3 standard of the boeing narrowbodies. Especially first class on the MD-80, flew on Reno, very nice. With the engines at the rear of the aircraft engine noise is barely perceptible

I would have to say the B757-200. Two of my most enjoyable flights were on B757s. I flew phx-ewr on a AW 757-200 and it was a comfortable and quite smooth flight. I also flew ewr-sfo on an UAL 757-200 and that was just as enjoyable.

Fokker-100...nice smooth and quiet. 2+3 seating is great. I enjoy flying them with USAirways. I also like flying on Continental Express in their RJ-145's. They have amazing leather seats and are very smooth aircraft.
