What aircraft do you most like to fly over the Atlantic Ocean. I personally like the 747-200 or 747-400.

I have quite limited actual experience in that, but I do like to fly the MD-11 the most over the Atlantic.

I prefer the Continental 777-224ER, seated in BusinessFirst, of course.

I don't mind what plane I care more about the airline. I like to fly BA or Virgin from LHR.

The only times that I have flown across the pond it was on either a 767 or a L-1011 Once on AA and the rest of the time of on DL. I think a preferred the trip on the 767. The fuselage on that aircraft is narrower then the L-1011 and I jsut felt more comfertable with that. Also it was quieter since both of it's engines where out on the wing. That center mount just seem to vibrate that aircraft after a while.

I think you like the 747 over the Atlantic or from New York to Washington. As long as the plane is a 747 all the rest doesn't matter, right? he he

I have crossed the atlantic in the following aircraft:

L1011 -Delta,
747-400 - Air India,
747-200 - BA,
MD-11, American.

I felt the safest while travelling in 747-400.

G'day All.
Across the Atlantic there is only one aircraft l'd like to fly in, and that is the Concorde. But l would not say no to anything else that had Business class seating.
See yah..

I just bought a ticket for this summer from Newark to London round trip, and the cheapest fare I could find was $878.54 on Continental. United Connection on the Web offered it cheaper than Continental offered it for on their own website, so I bought it from the United website. I'll be going both ways on DC-10s.

What months you are going there???? Are you crazy????? Why you paid so much????
BA has special from PHL to LHR for 408$ RT
Also Sabena EWR-BRU-LHR cost only 600$ RT. And you said before that you are teacher!!!! I will try to find phone number for travel agency "Academic Travel". Maybe next time before you buy ticket call them.
They have great discounts for students and teachers!!!
Last year I bought ticket from them and two years ago. For flight DCA-JFK-BRU-WAW (RT) I paid 680$, and it was American Eagle ATR42 from DC to NY, in NY I took Deltas L1011 (it was code/share flight Delta with Sabena) and from BRU to WAW I flown on B737 Sabena. On the way back I was on Sabena B737, then Sabena A340 and...... I was late for last flight out of JFK to DCA, so I had to sleep on laguage claim. Suckers from AA didnt put me on the first flight next morning to DCA. I had to wait another few hours. Finally when times come for me, they put me in cruppy SF-340. AA ground personel completly destroyed my laguage, and almost I lost my job!!!! Thats why I hate AA!!!

Regards
Rafal

PS- I love fly over atlantic on A340 and B767

I flew with Air Transat with L1011 & B757; L1011 is really horrible, B757 quite good (I spoke 1hour with the french-speaking pilot: very interesting!)
But for transatlantic flight, nothing is better than the Concorde!

I'm going in the middle of July. I checked every website I could find, Travelocity, The Trip, United, Continental, and I could find nothing lower. I know July is the high season, and I had been told the cheapest prices were on the internet. When I booked my spring trip to Singapore on the internet, no travel agent I called could beat the price. Maybe I did get rooked, but I didn't know I could do better. I haven't paid for a trip to Europe in thirty years.

The Boeing 767 is the best.
That's what I always get when I go to the United States with American.
That is the aircraft used the most on the North Atlantic, I'm positive about that.
The 767 is quiet, fuel efficient and most seats are either a window or an aisle. No seat is more than one seat away from an aisle. I read that Boeing has just started building the new B767-400 which will come out of the factory this summer. It will be delivered to Delta next year.
I think that Boeing should start designing another 767 derivative: the 767-500. The 767-500 would be a 767-200 with a the wing of a 400, in other words a shortened 400. The range with maximum passenger/cargo payload could be close to 7000 miles! It would enter service with the airlines in 2005 and be the successor to the 200. Because think about it, now the 767-200 is still young but it's time to start thinking of a replacement because in the mid 2000's it will be over two decades old and it will be time to start replacing it. That's what Boeing should do, announce the 767-500 and start doing it! It would be a very nice airplane for American and Delta.

I can't believe that you payed that much. You should have been able to find much cheaper faires.
