I flew a 742 once. An AI flight from Bombay(BOM). It was the first time i was flying a Jumbo, as i usually get to travel by Airbus A300/310/320.
The take-off roll was frankly very dissapointing, as it seemed to take forever. The nose seemed to rise only a little, and the acft barely missed the outer perimeter fence, atleast it looked like that!
An off-duty AI pilot who was sitting next to me mumbled something about 'Ops screwing up again', whatever that meant, to explain the poor take-off performance. I was overall very dissapointed. I hope i fly one the 744's.
