Occasionally, I'll pay a few extra bucks to fly on a certain equipment. Right now, I am researching flights to Los Angeles, and want to take a red-eye back to Boston. My options are to connect in CLE
, or EWR
. Connecting in CLE
is slightly cheaper (no more than $10), but I would be on 737s for LAX
(nothing wrong with the 737, It just seems that I'm only flying 737s right now). However, the EWR
option has a 757-300 on LAX
, and I haven't flown on the pencil yet. Another choice has me paying a few extra bucks to fly on a DL
777 going from LAX
, which I wouldn't mind doing, and also this itenerary can be worked out so I can get a ride on the elusive MD
-90 (you never see any of those on the East Coast).
So in short, yes, I am willing to pay a little bit more for a certain type of plane, but no more than really $15-20.
