« on: November 03, 2012, 06:37:06 PM »
Hey guys this just a topic for fun discussion about your top 3 planes in YOUR OPINION no harsh/mean comments please!! ;D

My top 3:

1.A300s All my successful airlines have used these planes to begin their airline.
2. 737 700-900. I just generally love these planes for some weird reason...
3.A340s. Just because...They KIK @$$!!

The best plane for me is the aircraft that can handle most situations in most gameworlds.

1) DC-10
2) 727
3) A320 series (while 737NG is better, A320 can be used in more gameworlds)


Most other aircraft have their specific timeframe where they are good and maybe better, suit other airport types than I normally go to or are a nice addition. However, this doesn't make them to the "best" aircraft for me.

I'm surprised no one has said Dash-8, Saab 2000, or 767.

Also, in DOTM the MD-80 is great.

How about some Caravelle love?



A couple of Jet Ages ago I operated over 250 of them. IIRC I owned over 80% of the entire global Caravelle fleet by the end of that game. (mostly because nobody else wanted any...) My most successful airline to date.

The MadDog of its day  8)

I'm also partial to the MD83 in DOTM and the B734 in MT.

1. Tu-134A/B (Say what you will but these pieces of junk have kept me afloat for the duration of DoTM4)
2. DC-9-30 (The backbone of my largest airline ever in JA6, the largest single fleet Ive yet had)
3. L-1011 (every time I go with these for long-haul, I am never disappointed)

Honorable Mentions:
MD-80 (My first plane in demo and beginners)
Antonov An-24/26 (20 of these paid for my DC-9s)
Embraer 120 Brasilia (crazy profit margins when owned)
LET L-410 (you'd be surprised, I successfully tested the whole series in JA6)
CV-240 (classic)

My favourites:

1. BAC 1-11 -500 (I never understand why people prefer the 737-100)
2. A330-300
3. DC10-30

I'm also fond of the VC-10 when it's launched, although the DC8-63 makes it obsolete.
