I would like to see your ratings to the following list of questions.

1.- Which aircraft would you select for a long range flight (6 hours or more):
a) a smaller but faster one (15-20% saving in travel time)
b) a bigger but slower one

2.- Which seat arrangement would you prefer to see on your flight:
a) 2x2x2 or 2x3x2
b) 3x4x3 or 2x5x2

3.- Which aircraft would you prefer to fly in:
a) one with 200 passengers that takes 15 minutes to board and 20 minutes to deplane and pick-up your baggage

1.b
2. Any with two seats by the window, not three
3.b, obviously because I chose A in question 1.

And just to prove myself wrong I'm travelling in ten days on such a flight duration and the configuration is 3-3-3!
I remember when the DC-3 was new!

1. N/A. The biggest (747) is the fastest.  Big grin

2. B

3. N/A I like an airplane that can hold up to 500 passengers but is half empty or has lounges, cocktail bars and/or wider seat pitch.  Big grin (747)

Can't wait for the A380s to come out!  Big thumbs up  Smokin cool

Em well these answers contradict each other, but I will explane why I have chosen the ones that I have....

#1. I would choose B. I would rather sit in a big jet and feel safe and comfy...That's how I feel onboard a large one....

#2. I would say A. as I hate those over crowded planes. And don't wanna risk the chance of being split up....

#3. I say B. to that one.....As I ofcourse hate (no not hate but more in the lines of dislike) to stand in the middle of the plane trapped for at least 20 minutes with hand baggage......

Hope this satisfies you hunger for knowledge and curiosity...
