Been on a couple different 744's (CI and MH). Maybe a CX 744 sometime this year as well (if its not a 773 or 333). Probably no A380's for me in the near future. I'm more interested in big twins anyway so my current goal is to get a seat with a good view of the GE90-115 (probably SFO-ICN on SQ 77W).

Boeing 777-300ER on AC (YYZ-YVR roundtrip) *in three weeks*

I've also been on a VS A346 on the ground for a cabin tour, but I don't think that counts.

My biggest is the 744 on:

Qantas
British Airways
Singapore Airlines
Malaysia Airlines
Cathay Pacific
Air New Zealand

Also 743 on:

Qantas
Ansett

I've also flown the 77W with EK

Want to fly the A380 and might when flying to Europe in June (SQ to LHR; usually I'll avoid that hassle, but it will be worth it).

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed.

Avoid posting "Me Too" messages. These are messages that are posted by people who agree to a point being discussed and post a one liner, "me too!", "Good post Jim!", "I disagree" or similar message. This takes up time as readers must sort through these messages which have no real value to the group at large. Any message containing nothing more than a line or two of text is probably not worth posting.

If you have an opinion on a topic, you should in detail express why you have the opinion and what made you come to that conclusion.

Your post should be relevant to the topic discussed.

My largest so far has been an Aer Lingus 747-100 to and from the US in 1989. I was only two so I can not remember anything about it. Since then, the largest aircraft I have been on is a 757. At some stage within the next few years, I hope to fly on the A346 and 773ER.
