This is not by sale records, but your opinion only. What plane do you think has been the most succesful for Boeing? I know the 737 and 747 will get lots of votes, but I think the 767 series aircraft are there most succesful. They are versatile, large, and could work well for most of the worlds airlines.

I would say the 737-200 because it's a nice aircraft and there were a lot sold. Also because it's a good size for domestic routes and it looks good too.

I think the 747 was the most meaningful, and it was also the biggest gamble for boeing. Look at what the 747 means today... It is still a huge player across the world, it is still the biggest airplane flying, and it is the most widely known airplane in the sky. Even when the A380 flies, there will probably be several people who will see them and think that they are a 747. "look, it's a 2 story, it must be a 747"  Smile

Obviously the 737 is over 30 years old and is still doing well, and a few years ago surpassed the 727 as the most popular (in terms of sales) airliner of all time.

On the other hand, the 747 represents the great advances in technology that we now enjoy. The wingspan of the 747 is longer than the Wright brothers first flight! Many people are unaware that the Boeing company took a huge risk with the 747, and risked bankruptcy. But the sales picke dup and the aircraft epitomizes both the luxury and accessibility of air travel for the masses. Also, maybe with the exception of the Concorde, the 747 is the most recognizable aircraft.

Clearly the 747...it spawned the term "jumbo jet," and it's become an icon. Ask most people what the first thing that comes to their mind when they hear the word "Boeing," and they will most likely say the 747.

In terms of mere passenger travel and versatility,
the Beoing 737-300 is THE ultimate aircraft
capable of even landing on gravel runways
and a few "snow packed" strips.
I wonder how the "next generation" 737 series will fare?

For international image, that will have to be the 747

For visual sleekness, I like the 757 and 777 series.

The 747 obvious does not have the sales volume of the 727 and 737, but its influence goes way beyond the 1,200+ planes built.

It was the 747 that dramatically cut the seat-mile cost of international travel, paving the way to a massive increase in international air travel.
