What plane would you fly if you could be a pilot? And for what Airline

For me it would be the B777, don't care if it is a 200 or 300 series. The Airline would be Air New Zealand

Would like to fly the Airbus family. But if I got the chance to fly I would take any aircraft in good condition!

Choice # 1 : 777-300ER with GE90-115Bs having 125000 pounds of thrust

Choice # 2 : 747-400ER of Qantas

Choice # 3 : L-1011-200 (always been a dream to fly this one!)

My dream is to become a pilot and I will take some flight lessons as soon as I've the Euros/Dollars/Pounds/Other-courrency to do it.

And my dream was to fly the Concorde...the best aircraft of the aviation history (I mean also better than all the military planes that I don't like very much).

Since the Concorde is gounded :-( I want to fly an Airbus...don't ask me which one because the only difference in the cockpit is the 2 or 4 thrust levers  Smile/happy/getting dizzy but maybe the A330 or the A345/346 would be a nice plane to fly.

Ciao

First choice would be any of the 777s and second choice would been the A330. Twins all the way for me.

Definatively the MD11 Passenger or Cargo version

Dornier 328 (prop) would be good for an airline.

But any plane ever would have to be the Spitfire - elegant and lethal rolled into one combination.

B757 - no 777's, A330's etc... A 757 will do just fine.

SQ A345. Mostly because SQ happens to be one of my favorite airlines. And I'm an Airbus kind of guy (I've no quarrel with Boeing, though).

An A340 (don't care if it's the -300 or -600) - most likely with Virgin, though I do prefer BA for ny normal flying.

I would love to fly an CRJ200.
I really like those aircrafts. They are really comfortable and I like them alot.
But if I got the chance to fly an Airbus A343 or a 747-400 I wouldn't say no to that either.

I'll probably be on my own about this one, but the 737, 700 or 800. Something about the new shape of them that makes the irresistible and the cockpit is just so much nicer to fly with.
