What common aircraft have you never flew in?

Whether it be pure luck, or just based on what airline(s) you fly primarily, what common aircraft have you NEVER flown on?

For me it’s the A319/20/21 NEO or any of those with sharklets. I average a flight on one of these at least 2-4 times every year. And I’ve never once flown in a NEO or one with sharklets. Don’t know why, just haven’t.

I’m not a frequent flyer by any means, but I did get the opportunity to fly a fair bit in 2023 (5 times).

I’ve flown about 15-20 times in my life (as young as 2-6 months old on my first-ever flight). Yet somehow, I’ve never made it onto a Boeing aircraft, or the A320 family. I usually end up on the Q, CRJ9, or most recently, the A220-300. Would love to try out the 789! Lol

I’ve only been on the 717, 757-200, 737-700, 737-800, A319, A320, and E175

The 787 and a330 neo. Whatever I do the flight is either not opereted by it or there is an equipment change

Hmm… I’ve covered all the bases I think. Maybe the A321neo? Or A321 without sharklets?

Don’t have many chances to fly. Of all common aircraft I haven’t flown on all NEO and MAX series aircraft and B77W. Next week I’ll finally be able fly on a MAX 8
Once I was going through some old photo albums and found a picture of mine inside the terminal with a B757 parked at the gate. But I remembered that flight was on a wide body so it could be a B772 at the other gate.

have had quite a bit of international travel, never been on a 777. Every time I’ve flown internationally, it has always been the 787.

The Embraer 140. It tortures me that I’ve flown on a 135 and a 145, but for some reason I’ve never flown a 140. Really hope I do get to fly it before it goes extinct.

Edit: just saw that the only realistic operator is Airlink in South Africa. My chance of being there before they are retired in the next few years is marginal, so unfortunately I won’t ever get to fly it.

Never been on any 737 Max. Uptil recently the only operator in India was Spicejet and my family avoids them like the plague. Now that Akasa exists, I’m hoping that changes.
