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.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

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 .

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.

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.

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