My First Flight On A T7

Sun Jun 08, 2008 7:16 am

Yesterday I flew to LA for the first time in three years. I thought I book a flight on UA 947 (IAD-LAX) to see what it is like to ride on a Boeing 777. When step on board, I was impress at the size of the cabine, I see why a T7 can carry as many people in a two class layout as a Tristar 1, 100 and 200 in a one class layout. It been said the noise from a T7 engines is intrusive, and have to agree with that. I knotes there was a lot vibertion on my flight. To sum it up, the T7 is a impressive jet to fly, it just need a little refinement.

Thank you for your TR and I'm glad you could fly on the 777.
Without trying to sound sarcastic or like I'm coming down on you, the more detail you can add to a TR, the more interesting it is. For example, your impressions of the service you received on the ground and in the air, you impressions of the flight, the inflight service etc all enhance your TR. The 2 things that make me want to read a TR is the airplane (of course a 777) and your origins and destiniation.
Pictures definitely make it come alive. You can include pics at the airport, inside the plane, and pics out the window. Browse other TR's and look at the replies and this will give you an idea of a good TR.
I hope you can fly a 777 again, and I will look forward to your TR on that
Have you kissed a 777 today?

Hate to nit pick. But.....

First of all, a trip report needs more effort. This looks more like a reply to a thread rather than an actual one.

Secondly, language. You live in America and English is your first language as opposed to... say... Someone like me.

Editing it before posting does help it to be easy on the eye of the reader.

But English is one of your four official languages  wink 

To the original poster, here are two examples of how a trip report can be, both with and without pics (and a shamless plug, of course Big grin )

And both incidentally in 777s.

Come on, give him a break.

He just wanted to note his impressions of a T7 short and simply. Ever thought it was never meant to be a full trip report? Maybe he should not have posted it in the TR section, but where else would it fit in better???

I'm also gonna give him the benefit of the doubt that he knows how TR's usually are (as a member since August 2003).

On the contrary,we will give him a break if his was a new member.What we did is to encourage him to write a better TR

I've been tempted to bring that up about this user as well, for a long time. I get a chuckle reading some of the posts and then noticing on the member profile that the member is supposedly in the U.S. Navy, but doesn't appear to have a basic grasp on English.

Perhaps the military has lowered it's standards so that common graduates of the public school system can be accepted?

Was there really any need to say that?

Over the years it's generally been accepted that the Trip Reports forum has been different from the others in that it's accepted that people have different opinions on what constitutes a "trip report". As a consequence, there has generally been no (or very little) disrespectful feedback - people comment on those reports that appeal to their interests and to the level of detail that they need. Negative comments in this forum are usually related to opinions expressed that others don't agree with.

Granted, the OP's report didn't do a lot for me, but if you've ever read any of my reports, or the reports I've commented on, you will understand why. Similarly, there are those that enjoy brief, succinct reports.

Apologies for quoting your comments specifically PWM2TXLHopper, I appreciate that others have left negative feedback too, but I wanted to try and keep my comments brief, and you were the last person to reply. Sorry, no personal disrespect intended.

All the OP did was post his opinions on his first 777 flight, and it's my belief that we should respect that.

If this gets deleted, so be it.

I think it was a good and quick TR. I enjoyed it because I myself will be flying my first T7 in July. It will also be on UA, but mine will be from LHR to IAD. My only comment is that I've never been on a TriStar. Some people say its like being on a smaller 747, but last time I was on a 747 was in 1998. Could you please share and tell us about the cabin size and amenities? What services did they offer?

Overall, great overview and TR

It would have been nice to read a bit more on that trip of yours, unfortunately all you did was take out of the oven a really nice smelling lasagna in front of a bunch hungry people who in the end, ended up eating at McDonald's!

I second you on that!

I agree 100%.

I also dont understand why people in this forum or any forum on airliners for that matter are so quick to nit pick, and judge others.

So the man didn't conjugate everything correctly... who gives a shit. everyone obvi understood what he was trying to say.

get over it.
