Tough choice, but I agree with you. I even preferred flying the 777 to the 747-400.

It was actually called the "367-80"...using the 300-series designator to mask the fact that it was a jet transport from the rest of the aviation industry.

767's top all - haha!

I've heard in a few places that they stubled upon 707 as the SIN of 45 degrees (the wing angle of the 707 - what I heard) is .707...! I don't know this to be 100% true but I've heard it in a few places.
