    I was going to say. When was the last time a new 767 was built? The 90s?

      Edit: Oh, that's not true -- I flew in a friend's Piper J3. But for airlines, only the other two.

        You've probably flown an Airbus at some point. Most American airlines besides Southwest have a few.

          • I don’t fly that often, or at least I didn’t before marriage. However, I have flown an Airbus on my way to Paris back in 2000; it was the wide body one (320?). I liked it, felt nicer than anything I’ve been on since then. I know I’ve been on MD and Boeing flights throughout the years, and I used to hop around with my buddy in his Cessna back before he went pro, he even let me do that flying ****, Mav, on one trip from IA City to back home.

              330 is the wide body (along with 340, 350, and 380). 318, 319, 320, and 321 are narrow.

              I've flown a little bit of everything in the narrow body. 737-800, A320 and 321 and maybe 319. Not sure if I've flown 319 but I think I will later this summer. And the regional jets, Embraer 175, CRJ 700 and 900. Flying in a Embraer 145 later this summer. 1x2 config. Interesting little plane. Been quite a while since I've been in one

              • Being from Alaska and having had to fly for basically everything I've run the gamut of narrow body airliners, from the 737 and A320 to oldies like the MD-80 and 757. And of course the various regionals like the Q400, E175, and the old CRJs. Even flew on the DC-10 when I was a kid.

                Never really have traveled long haul international so I haven't been on the wide bodies.

                    I doubt it if only because I have not liked any plane I have flown in since the 80s, and have flat out hated the ones I have flown in the last decade. That smells like Boeing.

                    The worst, or should I say the best, plane I ever flew in was a twin-prop puddle jumper that flew from Philly to Ithaca for Allegheny in the 80s. I assume it was a 30+ year old DC-3. We flew through heavy rain, the engines felt like they were stalling whenever the pilot attempted to climb, and I was on the whole surprised we made it.

                    • I've been on almost all of them at this point. For the last 15 years or so, the passenger experience is noticeably better on Airbuses and Embraers (the Bombardier plane that Airbus bought and rebadged as the A220 is one notable exception).

                        I'm sure their Goebbels talk radio network is still highly profitable, however.

                          • One would assume the RWNJ hate radio grift mostly dies off with the remaining Boomers over the next 15-20 years, right? Might be interesting to see the actual audience demographics.
