I Booked My First 767 Flight!

Sat Sep 02, 2000 11:48 pm

I booked my first 767-200 and 767-300 flights today with United. I will go in about 12 days. I am soooooo excited about riding on a 767!! This may sound like no big deal to you, but I'm very excited!! Anyone have any interested 767 stories to tell?

The B767 happens to be the first airplane I've ever been on. I was only 1 years old so I can't remember.

TheFlyingDream,
UNITED IS A GOOD AIRLINE. THEY HAVE THE BEST ROUTING STRUCTURE, AND THE BEST FLEET TYPES IN THE AIR! UNITED AND NORTHWEST, ARE THE ONLY TWO CARRIERS THAT ARE BASED IN THE UNITED STATES THAT OPERATES THE 744. THE RECIENT LABOR PROBLEMS ARE OVER, AND THE SERVICE IS THE FINE.

Why do you hate United?

Always fly U N I T E D

To B744:

Are you flying International on the B767-300 on United. If so the aircraft should have the new Economy seats w/PTVs , the new bus. class seats and the the FC sleeper seats that I flew on the 744. UAL's 767s rock!

The 767 is a great widebody. Most comfortable of any plane I have been on. I just flew on a 300ER last week with SAS and loved it. I havn't been on United's yet however. I am sure it will be one of your favorites. Did you get a good seat? Have a good trip.

In May of this year I flew on a GE CF6 powered Delta 767-300 from CVG to MCO and I loved it!! It was the most comfortable flight I ever had on a wide body.

I loved that first 767 flight so much that I am taking another Delta 767-300 in May 2001 on the same CVG to MCO route.

It is a great airplane! I flew a Delta 767 from TPA-ATL, and it was one of the best aircraft I've ever been on. They are very comfortable, although its a shame that you're not fly AA or DL, but United is good too.

Fly them all the time out of my hometown SLC. Delta has a hub here and we get them from SLC to LAX, LAS, PHX, ATL, MCO, JFK, TPA, MIA, SEA, PDX, SFO, DEN and others. Great plane, great first and coach seats. Easy access to isles even when one is full of carts. Quiet, fast and a great ride. One of my favorite planes.

Hey B744, ask to see the cockpit, when I flew TWA recently, 762ER, JFK-CDG, the gate attendant just told me to walk right in, so I did, and the suprised captain told me to take a seat, let me sit there for the entire preflight, and took my picture. Have fun the 76 is GREAT!

I'm glad to see so many favorable comments about my favorite plane. I flew a RR-powered BA example. Though I had an unpleasant experience getting to Athens airport and dealing with long lines, I felt relaxed as soon as I boarded the plane. I enjoyed the in-flight music and BBC videos throughout the entire smooth flight into LHR.

I found the 767 to be neither too big nor too small; the cabin was bright and airy. The 767 does a great job flying both long and short routes as well.

I envy the lucky flyers and wish them an excellent flight.

The 767 family is truely (in my opinion) one of the best models Boeing has ever made.

I booked a Delta 767-400 flight for Novemeber over the 777 for a flight to MCO from ATL. I'm very excited to try it out! I really wanted to try both on the same trip but the schedule didn't work out for me. I will try out the MD-11 on the way back instead. Eventually I will get on that 777 Dammit!

As i write this, it is now 6.20 pm in Sydney on the 25th September and I have just returned from Brisbane on Qantas flight QF533 on their newest Boeing 767-338!
This was a great airplane although I have flown on mant -200s before this was my first -300 flight. I had a window and my nose was plastered against the glass the whole time. I'm still smiling now.
I hope you enjoy your trip.
If you are interested I also flew up to Brisbane on Friday with Impulse airlines, and that was my first trip on a 717-200.
