Got the idea for this topic from the "What Aircraft Type Have You Flown Most This Year?" thread. So thanks DeltaMD11
So out of all your flights this year, which aircraft type/series did you fly on for the first time?
For me this year, the only new plane I've added to "the list" is the 757-300. Flight was on Continental from IAH to MCO back in June. Flown the -200 many times, but so far this is my first and only -300 flight.

Haha, good topic as well. Well, I got to fly on the A330-200 for the first time this year, and to say the least I was really impressed. Flew her JFK-GVA, and ZRH-JFK. The aircraft lacks an "umph" in terms of power in my experience, but she has enough to get the job done.
I just noticed, I've been an a.net forum member for exactly one year to-the-day, today. That went by quickly.

This year was a great year for me and flight. I am going to be attending Embry-Riddle in the Fall of 2004. I was recently accepted. I wanted to go to many places before my College career would start. I will be studying to become a Commercial Airline Pilot but anyway ...
I flew these A/C for the first time on these routes this year:
ISP-PHL Dash 8
This adds to my list of A/C flown on ,
762, 763, MD-80,3,8, MD-90, L-1011, 757, 73G, 717 and DC9-10,30

This year I got the A300B4 (was hoping for the -B2, because it would have been more logical to get the -B2 before the B4, now the -B4 will be first) with JAS and the 747-300SR (JA8173) with JAL - almost unique among 747s.
Next year, I'm hoping to get a flight on the A340-600 and 717, among others, possibly the MD87 as well.
B767-400 CO MAN-EWR
A330-300 NW AMS-DTW
DC9 NW DTW-ORD
This just about completes my set of Airbus / Boeing aircraft - just the A310, A340 and 717, 777 to go. Was going to fly AA 777 LHR-BOS but a late change and decided to go to Chicago instead on KLM/NW. Will probably make it later in the year though on AA777 or VS340 so that'll be another ticked off.
