  • What's You Favorite Domestic Plane

    I'm booking flights and I personally hate the 757-200 for its lack of personal electronics power equipment. The Airbus 320 has the outlets, what other airline equipment do you guys like to travel on? Plus I'm 73 in tall, and the 757's don't have any leg room at all.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

      I've never flown on an aircraft with power at the seats.

        I was on a 737 from Philthy to DFW that had power at the seats. Our flight from DFW to HNL was on a 757 and it didn't. Glad I had 4 extra batteries for my laptop for the flight to HNL.
        A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

          I'm a big fan of the 727, and BT-67's are damn cool, as is Seat Guru. Never hurts to ask for the bulkhead first, followed by the emergency row, and sometimes upgrades to first class can be had for as low as $30 per segment.

            I know the Boeing 747, the C130, the C17...

            and that's about it to be honest...

            that is unless you wanna talk about helicopters too!

              Do the C17 and C130's have power in the seat? I bet if they did it would be that horrible 24v stuff they run. Do you get peanuts and soda in-flight? :)

                Lol, no, no, and no.

                All you get is the air from the random spots in the plane hitting you, the loud droning noise during flight, uncomfortable seats with crap seat belts, and your buddy and half of his gear partially on you due to space restraint.

                  In-Flight Wi-Fi.

                  So as I search for a flight I came across this.

                  Air Canada will have it soon. There's hope for you yet Render

                    What do you mean hope for Render? Don't you think that the same day that they get Wifi in Canadian planes, Render's name will show up on the no fly list.

                      Yea, KC-135's don't have power either, but if you know the right guy(me) you had power.

                        Don't most aircraft have plus and minus 15 volts dc pretty much every where? Plus and minus to create an artificial ground. Why an artificial ground, it's an airplane? All of the inertial guidance sensors I helped make usually were designed to run on +15 and -15 volts dc.

                          Flying things develop a static charge. Helicopters in particular have knocked plenty of people on their ass.

                            I've only flown a few airlines, never international, Southwest usually, US Airways / Frontier / America West, all economy flights and none had outlets. It wasn't until recently I had a flight with TV's.

                            I've always wondered what airlines had the power outlets.

                              American and Delta, perhaps others. Check the flight, also. If it used to be TWA (American acquired them), then they probably don't have them. Flying into or out of St Louis would be a quick clue (the old TWA hub). Not all seats are equipped, even then. Delta used to take an odd connector. It's been years since I cared.

                              Little commuter flights don't have these, of course. I know I've had them on 737 and above, and I think on MD-80. It's been a few years since I was a road warrior, so ymmv.
