For example, for a 757, do you pronounce it seven-five-seven, or seven fifty seven?

I pronounce it seven fifty seven. You?

I usually pronounce it seven five seven (i'll use your example). Sometimes I also leave off the last number and just call it the seven five.

I think we should worry about more important concerns, like whether beer is a food.

I usually pronounce them as a whole number, as "seven fifty-seven" in the example given. However, I also often use other terms, such as "three-holer" for the 727, "Fat Albert" for the 737-200, "Jumbo" for any 747, etc.

I suppose it depends on who I'm talking to. If it was my mother, I'd call it a "seven-fifty-seven", but if I was talking to a controller on the radio, I'd call it a "seven-five-seven". If it's a plane junkie (like me), I'd call it a "seven-five".

As a minor, I can't drink beer by law. Anyways, my beer of choice is Yuengling Lager. Now THAT is a good beer, and would definitely be considered a food. Budweiser and Coors taste like horse piss(same w/RC cola), and are not considered food.

Here we call it a 57, 67, 37, 27, and yes due to the large amount of carbs a beer is considered part of if not it's own food group,  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Depends on the situation. I always say seven-five-seven (777 is triple seven, 717 is seven-one-seven), but sometimes I will refer to a plane as a seven-five.

Heh, we got two conversations going at once. I always pronounced it as a number, then a two digit number, like seven fifty seven, but on the boeing site, the pilots of the NG 737 called it the seven three sevan, and pilots seemed to have called the 747 the seven four seven.. I've wondered this too. Thanks, guys!

Well, Some people call the 747 a seven-four-seven or a seven-forty-seven. but what does Boeing call it? Do Ferrari call their 355 a three-five-five or a three-fifty-five? who knows!

I always call it "seven-six-seven" or "Seven-four-seven, but sometimes i say "seven-forty seven" or "seven-fifty-seven", depending on how want to call it. I prefer triple 7 instead of "seven-seven-seven"

I thought the 717 should be called the seven-one-seven, to sound more like the others in the series. I recently flew on an AirTran 717, and the flight attendant referred to it as a seven seventeen when she did the safety briefing. I just don't think that sounds as good as seven-one-seven.
