I don't travel much, but I would like to take some flights on various airliners. I have a couple of questions in this regard.
First, is there a way to search for flights by aircraft type?
Second, is it ever possible to catch the short leg of a longer flight. For example, my first ride on a 747 back in the 70's was the SFO to LAX leg of a flight that was then headed to Germany. Do airlines ever fly short legs like that any more with the bigger jets? If so, is there any way to search for such flights?
Basically, I just want to fly some of the planes I haven't been on, such as the 747-400 and 777. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
