MY CHOICES:

Biggest Narrowbody: DC-8-71 (250+ PAX)

Smallest Widebody: C-130

....Hard to argue with that. (Not that someone won't)

Among current civil airliners, the smallest widebody is probably the 767-200 (I don't know exactly how it compares to the A310 - not much difference, I suspect). However, in a three class layout, United configures it for 164. (Britannia would squeeze 270 into the same aircraft!)

The largest narrowbody would surely be the 757-300, which has a maximum pax configuration of 256, which is probably just slightly ahead of the stretched DC8.

Yeah, my first thought was 753, but I checked the ATA order posting which listed, I think, 146. I assumed that ATA used the max capacity, but I may have assumed wrong.   Does anyone know offhand the longer of the two? I thought I read that the DC-8 was, but perhaps the 2 man cockpit allows another few rows in the 753.

I would have to say the biggest narrowbody would be the 757-300. The old DC-8-62 series might have been similar.

The smallest widebody would have to be the A310

In todays Boeing Newsletter, there is an article on the AA 757 order, Belyamani is quoted that the 757 is the biggest single aisle "twinjet" ever made (757-300 up to 289 pax). That should beat the four engine DC-8.

This can't be right. 146 is about as many as a good 737 800 could hold, and the -900 more. The 757-200 can hold well over 200, and the -300 can hold as many people a a 767-300 and almost as many as a 767-400 in 3 classes if the 757 is in 2. 146 on a 757-300 would be like 36" seat pitches, which is unheard of, especially for ATA.

OOPS!
Of course, you're right. Brain said 246, fingers typed 146. Sorry, folks!

That's okay! I hadn't thought of a typo, so I guess my arrogance was as much to blame for being so condescending.

The 757-300 seats up to 289, the -200 up to 239.
Boeing are always careful to say the 757-300 is the worlds longest single-aisle twin-jet, leading me to believe that the DC-8-71 is longer.

I'd say the A310 is smaller than the 767-200. Although they both seat about the same, the A310 can go up to 9 abreast, while the 767 only goes up to 8 abreast - same amount of people in a shorter length on the A310!
