Top 7 Passenger Airplanes That Give The Best Flying Experience

Better known as the Airbus A350 XWB (which stands for Xtra Wide Body), this aircraft was first proposed to compete with Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner, but was eventually steered in a different direction for its debut in 2017. Both variants in this series can hold up to 400 passengers, and travel a little over 8000 nautical miles.

What sets the A350 apart is its high bypass turbo engines, the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB. This twin-engine is not only powerful but soft, allowing travelers to enjoy a more quiet flight as compared to most other planes. It also offers all the other perks of modern planes, like mood lighting, an up-to-date entertainment system, as well as more comfortable cabin air pressure and humidity.

Much like the Dreamliner, the A350 has a 3-3-3 seat configuration, but a wider cabin which allows for more rooms to move and less crowded seats. Qatar Airways, Lufthansa, Delta Airlines, and Cathay Pacific currently operate numerous A350’s. Emirates has placed an order for 50 of the aircraft to be delivered by 2023.

One of the earliest commercial passenger narrow-body airlines, the immensely popular Boeing 737 first debuted in 1968 with the Lufthansa Group. Nearly 15,000 models of the 4 generations of this family of passenger planes (which consists of over 15 variants) have been sold.

The newest variants have been equipped with turbofans and twinjet high bypass engines, and carry up to 200 passengers. The 3rd variant, the Boeing 737 Next Generation, was redesigned to provide greater headroom, mood lighting, more luggage space, and minimal cabin noise.

Unfortunately, the latest model, the 737 MAX, which was first designed to compete with the Airbus A320 has been grounded across the globe. Numerous American airlines make use of the many other variants, including Air Florida, American Airlines, Air Aloha, Southwest Airlines, United Airlines as well as over 30 other international airlines.

This particular aircraft was first launched in 1986 and is still going strong. It is a narrow body airline, which means it has a single aisle. In 2019, this aircraft brand surpassed the Boeing 737 as the highest sold aircraft on the market. The A320 family has 4 variants of differing lengths (A318, A319, A321, and the A320neo) and carries between 180 to 230 passengers.

The Airbus A320neo (new engine option) is the latest model and was first launched with Lufthansa in 2016. It has gained much popularity as it is 15% more fuel-efficient than most other aircraft, puts out less emissions with a larger engine, and has uniquely designed winglets. The 3-3 seating arrangement can make it a little bit of a tight squeeze, but the cabin’s modern interiors and mood lighting make for a pleasant journey.

The Airbus A320 variants have over 70 different airlines operating them from over 30 different countries, which include Air India, Air Canada, Air China, Uzbekistan Airways, as well as American Airlines, United Airlines, and Spirit Airlines.
