Mine is the MD-11... Instead of explaining the reasons why it is my favorite plane, I will pose this rhetorical question; what is there not to like about the MD-11? :)

My favorite plane has always been the Majestic Jumbo 747. I also like the L-1011 and the Md-11.

I am waiting to get on the 777, and the A330/A340.

Take Care,

Rob

My favorite plane to fly in is the DC-10. It's a great aircraft, and very comfortable. As for standard-body planes, I would probably have to say the 737-800, which I flew on for 3.5 hours last week. It was pretty nice on the inside, but we'll see if it stays that way after being in service for 10 years!

The airbus A340!
Also, the A320 & A319, and the GE powered A300B4( i have a strange attraction to this aircraft - don't know why yet!)

From the boeing Camp,
the 737-300 (the ng's didn't rub off on me as well)
And the 767-200

Oh, and the L1011 even though it's basically dead is worth mentioning. It was once very glamorous.
The 747 is ofcourse always nice to travel on as well, and how i do like the rear half of the 747. with RR engines for 400s and PW engines for classics.

I would have to say the B757/767 are the two best aircrafts built by Boeing.
