The 737 deffinatly because you don't have to bend down to get in to the plane. Second I feel like i am packed like rats in the MD-80's. Delta is replacing some MD-88's with 737-800's. I dont know of ne other airlines doing this.

I like the MD-80's because they have only one middle seat per row in coach, where as 737's have two. This may not be significant for people who get advance seat assignments, but if you're stand-by on a crowded flight, it makes a difference. In all honesty, the ony 737 I have flown on was a -200 that AA got from Air Cal, but I like the 2x3 seating arrangement.

I assume you are referring to which is the most comfortable. If so, this would depend on which airline you were travelling on, because each airline fits their aircraft out differently. For example, here in Australia I worked on 737 300's and they are extremely comfortable and popular for domestic routes because of the amount of room the passengers have between seats. But when we flew on the same type of aircraft on loan to us during the pilot dispute of 1989, there was a really obvious difference in the configuration, resulting in much less room for the passengers, and ultimately less comfort.
From what I've heard, the MD-80 is quieter than the 737's.

I also prefer the MD-80 because here in the Caribbean you grow attached to it, because it's all you see flying around, secondly it has better comfort and of course the safety record even though there are more 737's up there.
And regarding L188's freezing wing, anti ice is the usual remedy, but I dont know what remedy to use if my rudder suddenly slams full left (or right) and plunges me into the ground.
All planes have their own nick-nacks, honestly I like all planes, anyone one of the 2 will suffice.
