NYC to MIA in F - best flight?

Can anyone tell me which the best flight in F is from NYC to MIA?
Airbus 300, MD80 or 757?
Thanks!

Take the 763/2 from JFK. 60" pitch in F on the 763.

And the seats are very comfortable and *really* recline. You won't get anything like it on a 757 or MD80.

JFK-LHR connecting to LHR-MIA on BA 744s. If you truly are BA Loyal . . .

Sadly the 762 only leaves once a day at 6.27am, so I don't think that's a possibility...
It's between the 757, AB6 and the M80...

It has been a while for me, but I would prefer seats 1D/G on the A300 over any of the first class seats on the 757 or Mad Dog 80. If those two seats on the A300 aren't available, then it doesn't really matter.

Have fun!

I agree with the previous poster. If the schedule permits, the A300 in first is the most comfortable of the F options.

Do you agree that seats 1D/G are better than 2A/B?

Quite a bit more legroom in 1 D/G and bigger movie screen on the bulkhead wall. BUT, no window...

Do you get masses of crossover traffic in 1D/G? Are we going to be trampled on by people wanting to go to the bathroom?

Not much crossover. Other than from other lost first class passengers. F/A usually guide most passengers. When you board the Airbus in Montego Bay they use the middle door between the First and Economy Cabins. But when you disembark they use the front cabin door. This is by stairs of course. I wish they could do this with the Jet-Bridge in other aiports.
