I was just curious as to what everyones favorite airliner is. No matter what company post it here! For me it is the MD-80. To me the MD-80 is a sleek majestic airplane. Apologies if there is an older post like this, couldn't find one though.  Smile

It would have to be the first jet I flew on..... the 737-200. Sure the newer 73's are nice but I just love the whine of those P&W engines.

If I got to add in a medium haul airliners it would have to be the A310,(its sort of a medium-long ranged airliner) I love the whole stubby look.

I'm sorry, but the B-727-200's are by far my favorite airplane. Some say it's ugly, but I just love it.

Of course B-727!

And you gotta' just love the L-1011

Oh boy! In chronological order,
DC3 (rode turbulence like the QE2 rides the waves)
Vickers Viscount (soooo smooth and sleek)
707 (made international travel affordable)
727-200 (my favourite rocket)
747-400 (still Queen of the Skies)
...and in time I guess I'll add the 777, but Hall of Fame doesn't happen overnight!

The good old-fashioned 727-200. It was the most common plane I flew on in the 1970's. I still love to hear them as they take off!!!
