    They can, but they rarely bother. Get the job done down low.

    Ha! I just read 'airlines' instead of 'airliners' and compiled a long list of all airlines I ever flew with. Useless LOL:rolleyes:

    Start your own thread Sara. So many on here have been started with far less content than that.

    I’d be able to participate in that one.
    I can recall most airlines I’ve flown - especially the “dodgy brothers” ones!
    The actual aircraft - very little recollection.

    FPSO Ningaloo Vision. Flew off yesterday, 6 days on board. Timing was good as Cyclone is heading directly for it.

    Ahh you were only about 50km away from my current onshore project ( though I’m Perth based).

    FPSOs are clever tech

    My list isn't particularly long and I tend to only take notice of smaller planes (do they even qualify as airliners?);
    de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter
    Embraer EMB110
    Douglas DC3 "Gooney Bird" ...a lot of fun with a group.

    definitely not airliners were the Mustang VH-BOB joy flight from Pt Cook (which probably used the same amount of fuel as an airliner), and Tiger Moth out of Lilydale

    I think this is my complete list. The Boeing and Airbus are multiple models within the classes. There may be puddle jumpers I've missed. And I've not kept track of the seaplanes or whirlybirds:

    B717 B727 B737 B747 B757 B767 B777 B787; A319 A320 A321 A330 A340 A350 A380; FOKKER 27 FOKKER 100; DC10 MD11 MD81 MD90; E140 E145 E175 E190; CRJ700; CESSNA; DASH8

    This is a combination of leisure and business travel since 1977, when I took my first flight in a fixed wing aircraft.

    Does a 360 with Hazelton count?

    Same, same but only slightly different.
