What airliner(s) are on your mind that you will try to fly in 2004?

I'm trying to fly on a 717 for the first time. Also, another, or several, UA 744(s) is on my list as well. . . . .and possibly longhaul at that.

I got my first flight on a Boeing 757 and an Airbus A319 in February, hopefully my first Boeing 777 in September too!

I will definetely try to fly on a 747 at some point this year. It is the only Boeing plane (excluding the 707) that has eluded me thus far. I don't care which airline, and I don't care which route, I just have to get on that plane.

In 2004 I want to try to fly on Saha Air Iran 707s, if I go to Asia again I'd like to get on the Tristar of Orient Thai, a YS-11 of Phuket Air and the 777-300 of any of the majors there, and in Indonesia the Bali Air BAe 748, some 727s and F-28s.
In South Africa, I'd like to get on Nationwides BAC 1-11 or 727-100 and on a sightseeing flight on a Convair 440 or DC-4. If I visit my family in Nigeria, I'd try to get on a few domestic 727s and 737-200s. In Peru I'd try to get on a 727-100 and maybe the Fairchild 27 or Fokker 28 as well.

I just came back from a FRA-DUS flight, operated by the CR7, this was my third try to get a flight on this plane and finally I got it (trip report follows later). In five days I will fly CDG-DUS on the 318, two new aircraft types within one week are a good way to start the new year  Big thumbs up.

January of 2003 I had my first 744 flight with UA LAX-DEN. . .there was so much rudder play during takeoff, we were all being tossed side to side like ragdolls! Loved every second of that flight, and just plain love the 747. If you can get a chance to fly on a 747. . .by all means, you've got to go for it.

On my wish-list for a long time:

Fokker 70
Boeing 747
Boeing 777

Luckily I managed to fly on the MD-11 last year, but I'm afraid this list will be the same next year since I'm a poor student  Sad

Of all the years I've been with CO still haven't been on the 777. I always try every year but seem it doesn't work out. So my answer is definitely the 777!

I've never flown in a 330, so I'll see what I can do when planning my travel this year. As a loyal Star Alliance flyer, I might be able to do a BMI or Austrian flight from Dulles (IAD), or something on US Airways from Philadelphia or Pittsburg. We'll see. Not too many 330 options, if any, from my other home in San Diego.

Safe and happy flying to all this year!

I hope I´ll fly on the A321 for the first time on my LHR-FRA flight in February. It´s weird, I´ve flown on LH very very often but never got to fly on the A321. Whenever I was scheduled to fly on it, they substituted it by some other plane  Pissed .

I would also love to fly on a Dc-10 and an MD-11 next year but that seems to get harder and harder...
