How Do You Pronounce The Planes Names?

Tue May 03, 2005 11:34 pm

Following the 10000/10.000/10,000 battle, I remember to have always wondered how people do pronounce the names of planes.

In French we usually pronounce this way:

A380: A trois cent quatre vingt (A three hundred and eighty)
A340-600: A trois cent quarante six cents (A three hundred and fourty - six hundred).
747 : sept cent quarante sept
787 : sept cent quatre-vingt sept
777: sept cent soixante dix sept

I think in English it's for example "A three eighty". What about other planes ?
And what about other languages ?

787 : seven eight seven
777: triple seven

Personally, I say:
A380 "A three eighty"
747 "Seven-forty-seven"
787 "Seven-eighty-seven"
777: "Seven-seven-seven", or "Triple Seven"

Other planes:
707: "Seven-Oh-Seven". Even though the middle character is a number, it is usually pronounced as a letter.

340 = three fourty (or will it get off the ground  Wink )
747 = Seven four seven (or Jumbo Jet)
787 = seven eight seven
777 = seven seven seven (or plane with massive engines  Wink )

In German I think 747 is sieben vier sieben (seven four seven).
A380 I think is A drei hundert achtzig (A three hundred eighty)
Don't know about the others.

Please correct me if I'm wrong!!

I do the same as CitationJet, save calling the 777 a "Triple Seven." Other pronunciations of mine:

717 = "Seven Seventeen"

Since I also am a military av buff, I tend to do this for aircraft that have three digit model numbers:
Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker = "KC One Thirty-Five"
Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk = "F One Seventeen"
General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark = F One Eleven"

And for Russian jets, I'll say "MiG," "Yak," and "Il" as a word, but break down "Su," "Mi," "Be," "Tu," and "An" into their component letters (For instance "Look, there's a MiG-29 flying next to an S-U 27")

I do agree with Airbus but i do 747 and so on differently. I always said Seven four seven and seven eight seven.
For the americans seven o seven might be strange but as i was living in england we never say zero there. Always "o". So for me thats not a character but a number....

Thanks for the answers.

I'm a bit surprised to learn that English speaker mostly say "seven four seven". It's a bit annoying to say, and it's even worse for "seven seven seven".

The words "sept cent quarante sept" doesn't sound like a number in my ears but like a single word, and immediately the impression of an enormous and impressive size comes to my mind. While 7 - 4 - 7 sounds a bit like a lottery game ...  Smile

This is similar in a way to the "What year is it' thread, but anyway..

In Australia:

Boeing 707 = "seven-oh-seven" or "seven-oh"
Boeing 717 = "seven-one-seven" or "seven-one"
Boeing 720 = "seven-twenty"
Boeing 727 = "seven-two-seven" or 'seven-two"
Boeing 737 = "seven-three-seven" or "seven-three"
and so on, except for the 777 which is "triple seven"

Airbus A300 = "three hundred"
Airbus A310 = "three-ten"
Airbus A319 = "three-one-nine"
Airbus A320 = "three-twenty"
Airbus A321 = "three-two-one"
Airbus A330 = "three-thirty"
and so on.

Most of the time the words "Boeing" or "Airbus" (or 'B' or 'A') are not said in my experience, as we know what is being referred to (and we are somewhat lazy when we speak here). A conversation might include the phrase, "QANTAS is getting some more seven-fours" or "I used to work at Ansett on the three-twenty".

I think it varies depending on how you learnt the aircraft. If like me you learnt from 733,734,735,772,319 etc as presented in timetables and in the customer side of the airline industry you tend to refer to them by individual number rather than as a total number. It's to do with how you say the phonetic alphabet over the radio I think because you don't refer to a 747-400 as a 'seven forty four' on the schedule, whereas I do call them 7-4-4 if I see one on approach - it saves blabbing out "It's a 7-4-7-400" to become '"It's a 7-4-4"

When I'm reading them in aviation mags though they become like below. Airbus 318/319/321 lose the 'A' so that it becomes "Look it's a 3-19/3-18/3-21" but the widebodies keep the a so it's A330/A340.

I've confused myself now. Usually I don't even realise what I say because I don't say it out loud, the recognition is instantaneous and gets written straight away into the notebook in airline shorthand as 'NZ 320 ZK-OJG' as soon as the pic has been taken anyway.

Honestly, I hear very few people say anything besides Seven Forty Seven and Triple Seven. I only hear Seven Seven Seven when people are reading it and don't really know what they are talking about.

I say:

737 - "Seven Three" (at work I can get away with simply calling them "Threes", "Fives", or "Sevens" when referring to -300s, -500s and -700s)
747 - "Seven Four"
757 - "Seven Five"
767 - "Seven Six"
777 - "Tripple Seven"

For the different variants, for example 747-400, I say "Seven Four Four-Hundred"

i often leave off the last 7 in boeing products if i'm simply referring the the model as a whole.

For example; 737 = seven three seven, shortened to seven three.

In the same way, I might refer to an A340 as a 'three forty', leaving off the A.

Another abbreviation would be the shortening of 737-500 to 735 or 'seven three five'.

Whenever I fly on those aircraft, I always hear the pilot say-

Three-nineteen
and
Three -twenty-one.

Which is correct?

I don't think it matters because when you say separate numbers you do that so you don't confuse the other person but in the case of aircraft people know what you are talking about anyways.

This is offtopic but when I was in a hotel elevator in Vancouver a Japan Air captain happened to walk in the elevator with us. The employee asked him what floor he was in and I guessed he was still flying in his mind because he actual said floor "one-two" instead of twelve, that was classic. He must have been tired.

There is no 'correct' or 'incorrect'. If that's what you say in North America, that's fine by me. There are no A319s or A321s in Australia at the moment; we had an A319CJ visit SYD a couple of months back and we all referred to it as a 'three-one-nine'. It's what we say here and that's fine too.  twocents

Airbus: A three hundred, A three ten, etc.

Boeing: From the 720 through the 787 I say seven twenty, seven twenty seven, seven thirty seven, etc.
But for the 707 and 717 I pronounce the individual numbers: seven oh seven, seven one seven.

For some reason hearing "seven seventeen" sounds more like a time than an airplane.

Essentially, I'm:
767- Seven sixty seven, or if I want to sound cool when talking to pilots: ...yea, I like the sixty-seven, too"

I like triple seven (777), but sometimes I think that it deserves the respect of being the seven seven seven. I've never heard it called the seven seventy-seven though (that sucks!)

With airbus usually (A320), is "A three twenty" or long form would be "Airbus A three twenty". For whatever reason, "Airbus three twenty" doesn't seem complete.

Does anyone else pronounce WN as "win" (when reading it), or am I just weird? -- Thats the only one I do, I would't say HP as "hip" or something of that nature.

I either say "L-ten-eleven" or "TriStar".

If someone said "three-holer" to me, I'd ask them whether they meant a DC-10, MD-11, TriStar, or 727. And if they were talking historically, I'd throw the Trident in there, too, just to be complete.
