Chances are it's going to be Boeing or Airbus, and other than the current problems relating to the 737, many of which have been grounded, both companies produce good aircraft and have a fairly decent safety record.

I know Southwest will let you change planes without a price penalty. American Airlines will not. I have no issues right now with any model plane; however, I am a little skeptical about the 737-Max. I hope Boeing releases a statement concerning the two plane crashes.

I let them surprise me. I've been on several Dash Q's or similar, it's cool to look out and see props spinning, and no wings beneath you to spoil the view.

For me, if I donít have a choice on the route, then I fly whatís there. The majority of my flights are Delta transcontinental flights, so I can usually pick between their transcon 757s, A330s and variations of 767s.

Fortunately, I donít have to worry about the 737-MAX, since Delta doesnít have any.

I'm not too concerned, but I did go on the Southwest website to see if I could find out the type of plane I'll be on in a few weeks. Best as I can tell, there's no way to find out that information for existing reservations.

Thanks. Looks like I'm on 737-700 both ways.

Why is the US still letting them fly? Most countries have banned them until their problems are discovered. Wonder if this is politically motivated since Boing has large government contracts.

I only look to see if I'm on a Dreamliner or not. I absolutely love those planes.
