My vote goes to the 767. 767 is quiet ( and yes, I know an A330/340 is slightly quieter, but I don't so much notice it, especially not with my bose headset on.) it's smooth, it's long range, roomy, but doesn't seat so many people the getting on and off is a pain in the rear end, and both in J and Y the seating configurations are ideal. 1-2-1 /1-1-1 J and 2-3-2 Y are simply the nicest seating configurations around. If the airline is decent, you can get nice 18" wide seats and often pretty good pitch too. 777 is nice, A330 and A340 are nice, but 767 is my favorite ride.
For narrowbodies, the MD80 (sitting as far forward as possible) is the most comfortable thing flying. If you are in the first 8-10 rows, it is at least as quiet as an A320 (and I make a point not to get seated anywhere even close to aft of the wings), the seats are roomy (i miss AA
's more room throughout coach), and the 2-3 seating arangement is nice (again, seat yourself on the 2). It's about the smoothest riding thing with one aisle, so in my humble opinion, A320 and 737NG are nice, but MD80 is tops.

I have not flown them all but first class on a United triple seven is the way two fly.
Economy plus in the 777 is the best comfort/dollar of anything going.
The 777, especially the more powerful ER
's on short domestic hops are awesome for setting you back in your seat.

744, Queen of the skies, nothing else even comes close.
I dunno, actually being on board the 744 is less than outstanding.... upstairs is stuffy with little storage space, downstairs can be nice, depending on the airline, but with 3-4-3 Y, the seats are narrow by widebody standards. I myself much prefer the 18-19" wide seats in Y on 777 and some 767s.
