Love the 777. Very smooth and comfy flights.

The 747 is still my favorite aircraft though.

Definitely my favorite plane to fly on. Love the smooth ride. I also love the fact that in 18 years, no passenger has died while flying on the plane. That is more than luck.

The Boeing 777 is a great Jetliner with a excelent safety record. Despite a British Airways 777 crash landing in London. Thank goodness no one was killed on board

I have been aboard during turbulence and was impressed how smooth the ride was. Talked to pilots that fly the aircraft and never heard a bad thing said.

Boeing makes terrific products!

747 is my favorite plane by far!!

i always try to get a 747 when i book flights (and sit upstairs :) )


just yesterday I saw a cute bumper sticker when i was driving in tel aviv (actually when i was riding in a taxi, since i still can't drive):

"If it's not Boeing
I'm not going"

i agree!!! :goodvibes
