I agree with you! I think 763 has the nicest Y-class configuration (2-3-2).

It really depends on the airline. And for me the most comfortable airliner was a A340 Srilankan Airlines.

I haven't flown first class on alot of airlines, but first class in the 717 is a pretty comfy experience.... It's very very well air conditioned, extremely smooth...

It's actually a bit strange feeling because you feel the forward thrust but no accompanying "roar"...

A330/340. Very Comfortable. Bear in mind that I've never been on 767 and 777.

The most comfotable widebody that I have been on has to be the 767. The 2-3-2 seating is the perfect setup for passengers. Its not so wide that you feel like your stuffed in a moving full movie theater. But its big enough to still enjoy two isles. I don't care what plane it is, nothings worse then having 5 seats wide in the middle. Thats the most uncomfortable arrangement ever created. I got stuck in a 5 abreast center section one time on an L1011 and I will never do it again. As for the single isle aircraft, it would be the A319/20. They are just the perfect size and are so quiet and modern.

Just to change the pace here I would have to say that the most comfortable aircraft is an American Airlines MD-80 with the More Room throughout Coach. The legroom on these aircraft is great and you can't beat the 2x3 seating arrangement.

I can't choose.

The spaciousness of the 777, with the seating config of the 767
together with the peace and quiet of the A340's cabin.

D D D D Delta 880.

All first class w/a 12-place club section in front.

Of course you don't stay their long. But for the quick ride it is most quiet with lovely indirect lighting.

Try it.

Oh yea. You can't. Sorry!

How about United's 737s which have about two feet of leg room vs. other airlines where your knees touch the seat in front of you.

This is absolutly the wrong question. All airliners (from any manufacturer) are only tubes of metal. Whether an aircraft is comfortable or not, ONLY depends on the airline. You can put (too) many and uncomfortable seats into any aircraft.
Perhaps the 767 and Airbuses have a little advantage over the 777 and 747 because no airline puts more than 2-3-2 seating into an 767 and a 2-4-2 into an Airbus, but legroom and kind of seats are other questions.
The most important fact of discomfort in economy classes is lack of legroom and the width of the seats. This definitly does not depend on the aircraft.

The 777 in the 3-3-3 configuration. The 767-300 is also nice.

For narrowbody the 757... don't ask why, it just flows.
For widebody the A340 in 2-4-2... how can anyone stand 3-3-3 seating on a 777? That way you've got two seats that are two away from an aisle, more crowding than 2-5-2 where there's only one that's two away from an aisle.

Hey 747-600x, Sorry to tell you but the majority of airplanes in the world have 2 people that are two away from the isle; they are called 737s and A320s, plus the 747s are the exact same way--3-4-3 so there are two people two away from the isle. Since I don't have to go to the bathroom every five min, the most important thing to me is the "feeling" of spaciousness--wide body, high celings etc. That is why the 777 is preferred for comfort in wide body class (did you see the poll in this forum.) Even with the 3-3-3 or 2-5-2 it beats other wide body aircraft because of its feeling of spaciousness with the sculpted, higher celings and wider fuselage.
