Small Airliner: B717
Overall: B717

Big Airline: US Airways

Quoting StarAlliance38 (Thread starter):
Big Airliner: A320
Small Airliner: B717

The 717 and A320 are not all that different. Sure an A320 is bigger, but not by that much.

I would say my favorite small airliner is the DC-9-20. There are not many of those left. It has the wing of a -30 and fuselage of a -10. If I was to have a plane in a executive configuration that would be it.

My favorite big airliner would be an L1011-500, but a A340 comes in second.

My favorite big airline is Northwest. I do not really have a favorite small airline. I will always have a soft spot for Ozark.

Big Airliner: A340 family
Small Airliner: Any MD80/90 or DC9 series

Big Airline: KLM - I love AMS as a connecting point.
Small Airline: Air Nostrum - wonderful service.


The day that Air Nostrum starts operating A340s with leather seats and multi course meals and more drink services than you can shake a stick at in eco, then I'll be a very, very happy bunny!  cloudnine
