    Do you feel safer on the bubble 747 cos of the 4 engines?
    Do you like the Airbus A340... If so, why ?
    Do you like the new Boeing 787 Dremliner...just because its new?
    Or any other aircraft you prefer... or you dont mind as long you get there for the cheapest air fare.

    It has to be a 747 for me every time. Four engines are better than two :lol:

    The air conditioning in the 747 is really irritating to me - it freezes my nose!

    Can't wait to try the Dreamliner!

    It's funny, DW says the same whereas the worst thing for me is being too warm on a plane, so I direct all the nozzles straight at me for the duration :lol:

    i hate being too warm so fresh air is good! While the dreamliner looks good it doesn't inspire me with confidence! I like my pilots to be old enough to have had enough experience but young enough that i they don't collapse and require someone else to land the plane! :lol:

    Yeah couldn't agree more! Sure no problem having a teenager fly it like a video game is fine when it's all going well on autopilot, but when things stop going to plan, we need someone with the experience to improvise in ways that only an experienced human can do.

    Funny thing is, I prefer a cool room myself - there's just something about the air on 747 that really gets up my nose (literally!).

    I think it's too dry, like if you leave the AC and recirc on in your car for too long.
