I was in Atlanta taking pictures last weekend. I was lucky enough to catch one of the few 747s in Atlanta. (Atlas Air) I watched a Delta MD-11 land and I enjoyed that, b/c I love the MD-11.
Anyway, it seemed like every other plane was an MD-8x. I am so tired of having to see the things, they annoy me. I dunno why! They are beautiful planes, and I love the way they stand up and rocket off, but I'm really tired of them.

The MD-80. I do not mean to denegrate a fine aircraft, I'm just tired of seeing them. A close second is the 737. I think the 737 is one of the finest airliners ever built, just so common. The worst, though, is the A320 family. I just have never found them very attractive. I realize that this has nothing to do with reality per operations. I just don't think Airbus can beat the A300 or A340 in terms of looks. Just as Boeing will NEVER beat the 707 or 727-200.
Of course the Super VC-10 is, and in my opinion will always be, the most graceful airliner ever built.
I am glad I was around to fly before de-regulation.

Southwest OC schemes; in general just Southwest. Not any bias, it just gets boring when one sees at least two SWA 737's per hour at school. CO ERJ's are pushing it, though, but are at least more bearable than the WN 737's.

CFM-powered 737s and 767-300s for me.
There's a lot of MD-80s around but I never get tired of them; they're nice looking aircraft, and once those are gone all we'll have left will be mostly twin engine 737-style jobs.
One interesting thing with everyone's post is how in everyone's location a particular type seems to prevail. For example, someone is sick and tired of Fokker 28's, when over here I never get to see any! Perhaps we oughta do some trading eh?
IMissPiedmont, I agree with you on the comment about Boeing I'd perhaps add the 747-200 to the lot as well.
