A320. It's a good plane, does't fly too far so you get to see your family more often (If I ever have one).
With no family, it'll be the A340 or B777. These are superb planes and I'll get to fly around the world!

I'll say the 757, not to big, but has that heavy feel of a wide body.

None of the heavy metal for me. I'll take the Viscount and enjoy the view

Without a doubt the airliner that I would choose is the Super Constellation. This queen of the sky was the epitome of prop airliners and took commercial aviation as far as it would go with piston engines. There is nothing like the sight and sound of a dear old Connie whether she is starting up, taxiing or in her real element, the air.

Todays jets are great but for the most part they lack any flare and pizazz.

707

One of my biggest regrets was that I never got to jumpseat on one of those babies (too young when they were retired).
