I think it was a 747, with stop-over at Nairobi and Djibouti from Reunion island (RUN) to Paris-Orly (ORY) I suppose, in the early 80s (I was probably 2-3yo, had a picture at home on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower during winter ;D )

I *think* an Aer Lingus 737 classic from Heathrow to Dublin in the mid 90s.

Finnair DC10-30 from Helsinki to Beijing, but I was just a toddler so too young to remember it. First flights I remember were on Finnair's MD11s.

A319-100 from EDDL to ESSA and a 737-700 back from ESSA to EDDL, eventhough it was nothing special to most I really loved looking at the planes arrive at the airports and it got even more exciting when I was about to board them  ;D

My first was MAN-CFU on a Britannia 732-200 and my SECOND was CFU-MAN on the 8-abreast 767-200. This was in November 1987. When were your flights?  Being 17 I was already big enough to be unimpressed by how cramped the 767 was and it didn't help that it was a 1am departure, delayed to about 3am after being kicked out of our hotel at 10am the previous day.

I've only just come back to this thread  ;D

My Britannia B762 flight was also in 1987! But during the school summer holidays. I sat next to my younger brother in one of the pairs of window seats (of the tight 2-4-2 layout) with our parents sat behind us.

My first flight was on a Lufthansa 747-400 (probably) from IAD-FRA in 2002. I was 18 months old, so I don't remember anything.

My last flight as of May 12, 2021 was a 3-legged odyssey from YYC-IAD via YYZ and DTW. We started on a WestJet 737-700 YYC-YYZ, then transitioned to a Delta Connections CRJ-700 for the YYZ-DTW leg and finally got delayed for 3-4 hours to hop on another CRJ to IAD. This was in very early March, 2020, just 2-3 weeks before Ralph Northam declared a State of Emergency for Virginia.

As far as I remember an Air Ukraine IL-62M from Kiev to JFK with a stopover in Shannon, in 1994.
There was a flight between Kiev and Moscow earlier but I don’t remember the airplane type.

I remember as a child that I flew a lot to FLL from CLE in an era when the plane would land in ATL and continue on to FLL (before wheel-spoke).  As a kid that meant I got two takeoffs and landings!!!!!    I don't have pictures but since it was the early 80s and a domestic airline AND me recalling the side-seat in the cockpit, I am sure I flew on the 727 as one of my first birds.

My favorite plane to fly on ever... 767-400.  Flight from PHNL to KDEN.  Quietest bird.  Smoothest flight.

Major Planes I know that I have flown on:
717
727
737 (classics through 900)
747
757
767
777
320
DC9/MD80

Dash 7
Dash 8

I have PIC time in:
DA 20
Cessna Skycatcher
Cessna 172

First time when I was 5 years old, think it was a Yak-40
Later, I flew a few times on Tu-134
