The closest thing that I’ve been on to a md-80 is a B717 on Airtran.

Been on one. Pretty awful plane IMO.

Might I ask why? Not judging, or anything. Just curious as to why.

Smelly, loud, cramped, terrible air quality, usually dirty because they are old. Just my opinion.

Ugh if you fly on one do not get a seat in the back.

Would love to fly on one though but I doubt it will happen since most of them are operated out of Dallas for American airlines and will be reitired sometime next year. I mostly fly American and sometimes United.

I went on a SAS MD-82 to CPH in 2008

There is a pretty cool video at PC Aviator Australia with an incredible cockpit view in an MD-80 (take off and landing) 4 HD cams used to capture flap settings, arming spoilers etc.

I got one of those once worst seat ever

Been on about 30 of em both American and delta… would not recommend even the first class seating is no where near modern planes, American chose right to phase them out… delta IDEK

The first class on the MD-80s is the same as the domestic configured AA/US 757s and used to be the same as the 738s.
