Hello everyone. I was wondering what everyones thoughts on the boeing 767-300. i personally think it is an excellent aircraft. many people say in flight comfort is equal to the 747 only. i am going on an 11 hour flight on the 767-300 do you think that the 767 will be comfortable on that flight? also what airlines has the best livery on this plane in your opinion. i think that the AA and soon tho be CO livery look the best. i would like to know your thoughts on this aircraft. if you have flown this plane PLEASE tell me what route and airlines it was. Merry X-mas and all the best of luck in 99!

I flew on a 767-300 on June 27 of this year. It was from Atlanta to West Palm Beach on Delta (in the new paint scheme). I thought it was a good ride and I would fly on that plane again.

I have flown 767-300 many times on AA and DL on domestic and international flights. It's a very good aircraft. Once we had bad turbulence mid-Atlantic, the plane handled the turbulence very well.

Boeing 767-300 is an excellent aircraft. I have flown on that plane few times (LOT) WAW-JFK-WAW. It was 9hrs flight. I think that plane is more confortable than any Airbus, and what is important, B767-300 is really quiet, so you will enyoj your flight.

The 767-300ER is very nice on transatlantic flights. It has the exact same comfort as the 200, the only difference is the length of the aircraft. I fly American the most often.
Here are the flights I have been on a 767-300ER:
Many times Brussels-Nerw York JFK American
Many times New York JFK-Brussels American
Maybe five times Brussels-Chicago O'Hare American
Once New York JFK-Paris American
Once Altanta-Brussels Delta
Once Brussels-Washington Dulles United

I haven't been on a 767-300ER for a while because now American comes to Brussels on a 767-200. Now what I fly the most is Brussels-Chicago on a 767-200.
I love the 767-300ER and I know that American will have them for many more years.

Hello there 767-300ER,
I've flown on this plane only 3 times... On American from SFO-MIA, and on United from SFO-CDG and ZRH-IAD. I think that the plane is very comfy, and it was great on American cause I got to sit in the bulkhead seat! On United, the planes were the same except I thought the seats were better, but today all the United 767-300ERs have the new seats and seatback videos, the best in the business baby! However, I don't think that any 767 can be as good as the 777 or 747!

The 767 is a great aircraft but it is not as good as the 747 or 777. Still, you will have a great flight because they perform well.

The 767-300ER is a magnificent aircraft. very handsome. the only thing I would change about the aircraft is the position of the nosewheel. anybody ever notice how far forward the nose gear is positioned on the fuselage. I would push it back a little. but not as far back as, say, the L10-11 nose gear. I would push that forward.
anyhow, I just flew a Delta 767-200 and I must say legroom is pretty sufficient. at least for me since Im rather short. I was seated next to a very large man and so I had to relinquish my armrest to him. but other than that, it was quite comfortable. just having twin aisles is a luxury.

I usually fly the 767 from Delta Airlines from Atlanta to West Palm Beach or to Fort Lauderdale.

The 767-300ER, I flew this year on August 1st from JFK to CDG. The flight was really nice and very comfortable. It was on a Delta flight with the new livery.

I hope you really enjoy your experience!!!

I flew on A 767 from Chicago to London with delays we where in the plane for around 10 hours. It was very comfortable I slept on in most of the way. I also flew on it from London to Newark which was not as long but it was cool. If you sit in the emergency exit you will noyice it goes 21 to 23 I wonder were row 22 went.
Well have fun it is a nice plane. I have a buddy that flies them for BA and he likes them alot.

Flew in a Scandinavian Air System (SAS) 767-300 from Copenhagen to Hong Kong. It was an 11 hour flight which took us over Russia and Mongolia before hooking south to overfly Beijing then on down to Hong Kong. It was a great flight, except when we entered final turn on the legendary IGS13 approach to Kai Tak. The pilot botched the turn and then manhandled the plane to get us aligned with the runway. We were still banking and yawing like crazy only 30 feet or so from the ground (a normal approach to Kai Tak's Rwy 13 would have you wings-level by about 200 feet). I could clearly see the aircraft's shadow directly below us, and I wasn't even straining to look downwards! I was just waiting for one of the engine nacelles to slam onto the runway, but somehow the pilot(s) got it all together at the last second and were able to make a very smooth touchdown. Never knew a 767 could roll that fast though!!!
