Once it gets me where i am going and its a good flight.. that's really all I care about. I somewhat prefer Boeing, but when it comes down to it.. it doesn't really matter!

Personally, I don’t give a damn as long as the flight crew know their aircraft inside and out! No more of these thirld world carriers flying aircraft beyond their means of comprehension with little actual experience who have trouble by the way finding their way around an airport even though their actual position is portrayed right in front of them on the nav display?
One would think after flying 19 hours or so someone would have looked at a taxi chart? Too much?

BOEING HANDS DOWN. If it ain’t Boeing I ain’t going.
You must not plan on going to the many places that are served by either Embraer, Bombardier, Beechcraft, Cessna, or SAAB aircraft. From my estimates, that would be a very large portion of the U.S. and Canada that have commercial air service.

Why limit yourself?

This was about Boeing and Airbus not the rest.
