I have three. The top two are EWR-LGW onboard Virgin Atlantic's sole 747-100 G-VMIA "Spirit of Sir Freddie". The other top flight is LGW-EWR onboard Virgin Atlantic's 747-200 G-VOYG "Shady Lady". The last one was onboard an America West 757-200 PHX-EWR.

My Favorite Flight was on a Cathay Pacific B747-200 travelling from MEL-HKG. l had the three seats at the window to myself, and the 4 seats in the middle for a lie down whenever l wished. Also l was given a large bottle of gin, and a dozen cans of tonic water to make the trip even more enjoyable....

Mine was from LHR to LAX and back. We were flying a BA 747-200 and we were in the top of the plane which do not seat that many people so it felt like a lot less crowded flight and you get extra leg room. And you get a bin to put your hand lugage in will I made a bed there and went to sleep and had a great sleep. The flight back was as good.
I alos liked the flight from London Heathrow to Schipol. That was a great vacation!!! The flight was nice and short and the first time I remember not being ona 747. We were in a 757 which a good friend of mines flies so that was cool. But I must admit I was shocked that it was not a 747 as I had only flown on 747 at that time. Pretty funny. Huh?

Tough to say... I think either a SFO-HEL flight last year or the SFO-JFK-HEL flight that I had one week ago. Because on both saw some great scenery, and got to ride on the MD-11, and a ride doesn't get much better then that on the MD-11.

Los Angeles to Tokyo on Singapore Airlines, the service is unbeatable, i was in economy at the overwing exit with my freind, we had all the leg room there, i was at the window, he was at the aisle, no one in between us.
SFO-LAX, united 727, because the take off was so incredible, like a rocket
LAX-SFO, United DC-8-71, because i'd always wanted to fly on on of the classic jetliners
LAX-SLC-LAX Skyworld 707-300, again, because i've always wanted to fly on a classic jet, greatest of all, is the engines were still the JT3D lowbypass turbofans, the take off was great, it was the quickest flight out there i've ever made
