    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

    Wow love to see a bumper sticker like that. The Boeing 777 is the most reliable Airplane in the skies.
