What Your Fav Plane For Long & Short Flights

Mon Dec 10, 2001 2:57 pm

Hi, I wanna know which of these A318/319/320/321 planes u like more for short haul flights, and A300/310/330/340 for long haul flights...

I am not starting any Airbus Vs Boeing War.

On my flight, i would use a A320 for short, and A330 for long...  Smile

What's Yours..  Big thumbs up

I love the 737-200 for shorthaul. Loud takeoffs and landings, and turbulence tosses it like a roller coaster. It can't be beat. I've never flown longhaul, but I hear that the A330 is a nice, pleasant plane.

Without a doubt - the 777, I may try my hand at a trip report after my first flight on the Airbus 340 - 300 in a few days this week.

Long Haul- 744, 772/773

Short Haul- 738/MD-80/90

Honestly, there ain't much difference between Airbus and Boeing short haul fleet. I personally like the Boeing series of short haul better mainly based on asthetics and cabin comforts. And people, .5 more inches on each side of your ass isn't that much, and if you can tell it, then you have concentrated on feeling too much with your bum.
