My one 744 experience: rough landing, hard
braking and reverse thrust.
My two DC-10 experiences: surprisingly smooth and easy.
My two 772 experiences: smooth as silk, barely used reverse thrust on one of them.
My myriad 737, 757, and A320 experiences: all over the map, from floating down like a feather to dropping on the runway like a ton of bricks.
All different airlines (WN, UA
, etc.) and different airports. I think it's just "luck of the draw," so to speak.
