Seat and space dimensions. All I care about. And entertainment I guess. I have gotten used to killing time by watching TV on transatlantic flights.

I don't care whether the plane is narrow or wide body. Legroom is important and the price of the flight.

I like the narrow planes like that. Should be a great flight. Not a fan of the Jumbos and such. I don't think they are really as good as far as smoothness, at least that has been my experience. I have travelled a TON in my day.

Take a flight over to Asia and come back to us with comments.
No kidding; 19 hour run to Beijing from Vancouver, BC with a layover in Hong Kong, with a new baby. Just hearing the story I needed a nap.

How long would the flight on a narrow body small plane have to be before you would have to be on a wide body plane?

Same personal space conditions? Length of the flight wouldn't change anything for me. Just as long as it's large enough to hold sufficient fuel.

We just did our first Europe trip on 767 and booked the aisle seats, so we had just the two of us and then the aisle on one side and the window on the other. Since you can see the seats at booking, it was easy to choose this alternative. On the way back there were enough empty rows that I moved to the row behind so we had more room, but it won't always work out that way.

Hah...27 hours for me, two flight changes with airport waits, over to Tokyo and down to Singapore. Oh joy. I long for a quick 7 hour flight to Europe.

I like any plane that has 2 seats on one side next to the window so my husband and I can sit in them and not have to step over strangers to pee on an 8 hour flight but still get the window. Other than that I don't care. Lately I take a sleeping pill when I get on the plane and wake up there so it's a non-issue to Europe.

Read the responses. I don't think one person said that they cared at all if the plane was narrow or wide body. In fact, one poster said they preferred narrow bodies.

Each of us have priorities when flying. This wide vs. Narrow body doesn't seem to apply to the masses.

I will say that my elderly father did not like flying over the Atlantic in a narrow body - bexcuse of one, single reason: Hello was a bit uncomfortable flying with two engines instead of four. But he was in WW2, so maybe that's psychology reasonable.
