This is an article surveying travelers if they prefer Boeing or Airbus when selecting their flights. Looks like travelers do not care too much which aircraft it is. We do not care too much about the aircraft company but we care about the seating layout more often. Since it is usually my wife and I traveling with prefer the seating arrangements to be 2-4/5-2, which means 2 seats only on the left and right side and the middle can be a 4 or 5 seat rows. We like the 2 seats left or right because we do not have to worry about the third seat and the traveler needing to get up to move around because I must always have the aisle seat for my long legs. When booking our flights we always use Seatguru.com at the same time to review the seating arrangements because in most cases you are now able to select your seat assignments. If the aircraft is set-up with 3-4-3 then we would select the middle rows again so the other travelers do not have to disturb us. Do we select flights based upon the aircraft type NO. We select our flights based upon the time to destination (how long it takes), cost, and airline. We prefer flights that get us to our destination as soon as possible especially arriving in the morning so we can enjoy the full day. If the flight cost less than $150 per person then we will select the quickly time to destination like arriving in the morning. Now if the flight is more than $150 per person to arrive at night then we will select the cheapest flight. We prefer to select the same airline as much as possible to get more airline points from that company which we typically use for free hotels.
