I don't see how any self respecting person could sit in that dark space with your head so close to those two jet engines. I also got sick of DFW (is Pepsi still the only thing you can drink there?).

Has anything changed?
Still a few hundred... scheduled to disappear fast.
But I love to fly old aircraft. I'd probably kill to be able to get back on a B 727, not to mention a Caravelle. They both were the most comfortable short range planes to fly on. The MD-80s are nowhere near that.
