    Seeing as we have a thread for what flew over your house, how about what you flew in?


    I'll start with this one,


    A Boeing 777-300ER from London to Osaka via Istanbul.

    I've flown three times in the last three weeks, but I couldn't tell you what on. One was a lot bigger than the others :)


    I'm flying back to the UK on Monday and will try to remember to note what aircraft I'm getting on!


    The only thing I ever make a note of when flying is the number of rows in front and behind to an emergency exit. Even I can remember two numbers until I land.


    Cheers

    Yesterday in an Embraer 175. It is obviously designed for small people and the hard of hearing as for a person of average stature and hearing it is cramped and noisy :)


    Cheers

    That's the worst bit about hot places, having to take shelter in the bar. It takes a certain type of man and stamina to see it through.

    When learning to fly back in the early 70's this was the aircraft I was learning in. View attachment 114559



    But the first plane I ever flew in was this Britain Norman Islander, from Hull Aero Clubs Paull airfield to RAF Leconfield for a charity event. View attachment 114562

    Yes I always get cattle class. It's a long flight to India in cattle, done that a few times although Australia is worse unless you get the A380 which is nice.
