Am I the only person alive that appreciates the MD-80? They are quiet, the 2-3 configuration is nice (especially on the AB side), and, actually, I like the lack of inflight entertainment. It forces me to read and work versus watch garbage or listen to music. It also makes for a quieter cabin, IMO.
You're not alone. I rather like them too, especially with MRTC. And of course it doesn't hurt to have plenty of F seats upfront to ugprade to. I really don't care about IFE (although I do have a weak spot for air shows...). In fact I find video on planes without individual IFEs (738, 757, etc) quite annoying.
