What would be your preferred planes to fly IRL? (POLL)

Hey IFC!
So I am creating to ask those real world major airline pilots or aspiring major airline pilots what their choice of planes would be to fly with each level of seniority (even though this is all probably up to the airline based on their available planes and needs).
So if this is you, answer these couple polls with your preferred plane!

Right after hire:

  • ATR-42/72
  • CRJ-200/700
  • Airbus A220
  • Embraer Erj-145
  • Embraer E170/175
  • Canada Dash-8 Q400

I like this vote. I picked all the ones that I have flown. Except for the big ones

A330 > every other aircraft ;)

Love it so much. The best aircraft to experience a smooth landing.

With that last poll, hopefully both those planes are flying by the time I get there in 30 or so years.

But I don’t think the 747 will ever be completely retired from flying, it is probably one of the most historic and record breaking airplanes in the whole aviation world. It set most of the standards we even have today for airliners, it “broke” the aviation world when it was first released.

The a380 on the other hand… 😆😂😐

787 > any aircraft

With me, it’s still mostly a tie between the 777 and the 787. Both such similar in size, range, and shape. I do go with the 787 because it’s a newer airplane, more advanced and has a more 21st century look to it.

So was the Concorde, where’s that now?

The plane will be retired at the earliest opportunity by BA and Virgin some of the largest users still, cargo operators will likely fly them but not for too long. Regardless of how much you love it, it’s an aircraft, it’s not viable to keep a plane that’s ridiculously old or so uneconomical, these BA aircraft are near 30 years old, they will be retired before the older B777’s but still I don’t see them being used at 40 years old. Straight to the scrap!

Makes sense. Do you think Boeing will eventually even take the 748 out of production?

The 747 family may someday be completely retired, but never ever really forgotten.

Well, only a few (12-24?) concordes were built while there’s 1600 747s, so some may be private or on flying display. Also, I can definitely see 747-8Fs selling in the next few years

I think cargo is the largest buyer for the entire 747 family.

@Infinite_Flight_Sims A319/320 buds! The a319 has always been my favorite plane. This video may help y’all understand😂

Can’t argue, I wouldn’t fly a MAX at this point.

I’m actually kind of afraid to fly one, good thing I can’t right now

A350 I would love to fly it

What would make yall choose the a350 over the 787?

I personally haven’t flown it which is why I would prioritize a flight on the aircraft.

Because… because Airbus.

It’s funny, most people who don’t have a passion for aviation (the general public) say that they would not fly the 737 MAX. If you come to here where there are aviation enthusiasts everywhere, most people would fly the 737 MAX. Funny how things work 😬

Also, A350 for life. And usually any Airbus.
