From my standpoint, flying in a new plane, i.e. 777 as opposed to a DC10 isn't the same. It's strange...the older planes have this smell and feel to them. I'm bring this up because I flew in a 777 for the first time a couple weeks ago, by way of CO. It was a great plane and all, but it just didn't give me the same feeling I get on a DC10. Everything's round, modern, & new on the 777, as it should be. But...there's just somthing about those old jets! Right when you board a DC10, or 727 you smell this airplane smell. It's a mixture of coffee, food, and who knows what else. The 777 smelled like a new car, as do our new 73G's with the leather seats. Anyways just wanted to share that. Anybody?
