Flight attendants develop a more comprehensive and detailed knowledge of aircraft models than the average passenger based on their training and the time they spend flying.

Seven flight attendants told Business Insider what their favorite plane is and why. They work for airlines such as American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines. (Six of them asked for anonymity for fear of reprisals from their employer.)

That’s what the flight attendants said.

“I love my Airbus 321 because it’s the largest and you have the most space,” said a Spirit Airlines flight attendant. “You have the most passengers to deal with, and the more passengers you have to deal with, the faster the flight goes by. And then you have the most crew members, so you have more people to talk to, more interactions, and that personally makes it easy for me more fun. “

A Delta Air Lines flight attendant said that her favorite airplane is the Airbus 319 because it is small – which means fewer passengers need to be served – and has been renovated by Delta in recent years with amenities like televisions and electrical outlets.

“It’s a smaller group of people, just 70 passengers, so it’s a lot easier to meet people,” said Sally Ann MacLagan, flight attendant at Mesa Airlines. “And then I have the experiences that make the most sense because I can spend more time with people in person.”
