I admit it is great up the front with super wide seats when in a standard 2 2 config .. almost as wide as your single seater chair at home. Down the back of the bus it's a difference story
I thought that the 757 and 737 had exactly the same cabin circumference? While people claim that the 757 is more "spacious", and flying both you can definitely get that impression, I was led to believe that there was actually nothing that directly gives rise such a feeling.
I realise that I started this tangent, so apologies for that(!), but this has got me thinking about what I have
flown on. It is easy to forget in the mundane world of 737s and A330s we "enjoy" today, but I have actually flown more types that I normally think I have.
Metroliner (so glad I took that opportunity!), Jetstream 41, BAe ATP, ATR-42-200, ATR-72-200, ATR-72-500, Dash-8-200, Dash-8-Q400, ERJ
-145, CRJ100, CRJ200, CRJ700, CRJ900, EMB-170, EMB-190, BAC-111, BAe146, 717, MD
-90, 737- 200, 300, 400, 500, 800, A319, A320, A321, 757-200, 767- 200, -300, -400, DC-10-30, A330-200, A340-300, A340-500, A340-600, 777-200, 777-300A/ER, 747-400A/ER, A380.
Aircraft that I am pretty certain I flew on are 727-200, DC-9(-50?), 747-200 plus I think
I flew on 737-100*, 737-900A, Avro RJ
. (*completely forgotten that one until it was mentioned above!)
I guess my wish list, at least of things that are still flying, are Jetstream 31 (top of my hit list), F50/70/100, A310.

At least my son can say he has flown on quite a few different types. By age 5 he'd done:
A320, A321, A319, A332, A333, A346, 734, 738, 744, 763, 772, F100, Q400, ATR72-500, EMB-190
He is very, very fortunate to have a parent who takes note of these things! My father could be described as an "occasional" aviation enthusiast, but more of the AusBT reader than Anutter variety. He can remember a few details when I press him, but for the most part I don't know much about my previous flying until I can actually remember the details myself.
