Re: Avgeek who doesn't enjoy flying ?

My 2 cents - I’m much more excited for my flights when they’re on exciting equipment…. A flight on an a320 or 737 is hardly exciting. I’ll go out if my way and pay more to book 757s and widebodies when possible. If I was flying 737s and a320s on LLCs all the time I wouldn’t enjoy it either. I usual...
