Any MD-8X series, especially in the back. I never did have an affinity for these interiors. They were small and cramped to me. I only liked the flight deck.  Big grin

And any Airbus.

An ATR 42 or a B 737-300,
I just hate them both.

I do not want to fly on AS MD-80 (or any MD-80 series for that matter). I did once, it felt too cramped and ever since, I am willing to pay extra or fly at less convenient times to avoid it.

If you mean a plane I haven't flown on before, I can't really think of one because I want to try all planes at least once. But if I really had to choose, it would have to be some CRJ, I prefer to fly on props for shorter distances.

Ever since I was stuck in the last seat in the right side rear of a CO DC-9, I have never liked DC-9s or any MD-80/90 aircraft. It felt very claustrophobic for me (and I'm not a claustrophobic type); this "coffin-corner" seat was next to the right engine (no window) and right in front of the rear lavatory bulkhead. Noisy and cramped! These could be called "flying coffins" for their cramped interiors!
All the DC-9/MD-80/90 aircraft are skinny ("flying pencils") and thus cramped inside, and the seating is asymmetric (3-2 or 2-3), and while they are OK for shorter trips, are definitely not OK for longer trips.

I'm surprised planes like the DC-9/MD80/717 have been mentioned. Those are all great aircraft.

As for me the 737- all series except the -200

I didn't really like the 727 I flew on (United, in 1999) but on the way to Australia recently I was stuck in "window" seats twice- even though my "window" was of a blank wall. It was horrible on the 744- I couldn't see out of the plane at all! Other than that, I like to try all types of planes.

A318 through A321 for me. My NWA flights in and out of MEM convinced me of that.

Mark me down for the beech 1900, with two crashes in 2003, it's pretty sketchy in my opinion.
