727-More rugged than A319, IMO.

I have to say 727 as well. I enjoyed my A319 flights but the 727 will always hold a special place in my heart. I think the 727 did more for short-medium haul aircraft as well.

Clearly the A319 - the B727 is too uncomfortable, too loud, burns too much fuel and pollutes the air far too much: it's going the way of the dodo.

Well, I'm not going to 'officially vote'

I love the 727 for the memories, but I just wouldn't feel right putting the wife and kids on a commercial version in this day and age.

I like the 319 because of all the 'right' reasons (Efficency, noise, comfort) plus it hasn't had the wear and tear that most 72's have had.

I love the 727 but 319 gets my vote mainly because she is a new aircraft, wider and quieter cabin and more reliable then 727.
Airliners is the wings of my life.

Any aircraft would beat the A319, the most obnoxiously dull plane flying. Add another vote to the 727!
