A worthy work horse
I have spent too much time inside 747s in my 35 years of travelling. Way too much time.
Australia <-> UK, some 14 return trips + across the Pacific to the US some 5 times. And countless cross-country hauls on some rather geriatric and unreliable (since retired) jumbos.
Still, the old 747 is why I was able to afford to travel so much. Plenty of seats meant cheaper seats. Heck, seats are cheaper today than they were 30 years ago (in relative terms).
My preferred long-haul-caboose is now the A380. A wonder of space, comfort and quiet. Makes a 777 seem like the old 747s.
Swing low sweet chariot, come down easy
Taxi to the terminal zone,
Cut your engines, cool your wings,
And let me make it to the telephone.
