Boeing rules, Airbus sucks.
Funny that you'd chose yokes over joysticks. Whether it is built by Boeing or Airbus, the latest airliners are all fly by wire. That means that instead of the old push pull tubes, cables, bellcranks and pulleys that used to drive the controls by the pilot mechanically manipulating a stick or control yoke, the pilot now is simply moving a switch or rheostat which sends an electrical signal by wire to a servo on the control. When Boeing was designing the 777 they took a survey of a number of airline pilots and asked them what they wanted their new "switch" to look like. Since it was mostly old guys who'd grown up with a yoke, they voted for the yoke. But those guys are now all retired and a great many of the pilots today wish for a side stick. It does exactly the same function as the yoke with the advantage of not having a big old antique piece of junk to keep you from crossing your legs. Plus, the guys on the airbus can now pull out a table to eat your breakfast on.
you get to choose which airlines you like..
Whatever dude, just don't put me in the back of another AA super 80
You can choose whick airline you want to fly for, but they choose which aircraft they put you on.
Go work for Southwest or Alaska Airlines since they have all Boeing fleets.
You obviously dont really want a job in the aviation industry. If you were fair dinkum it would not matter what the aircraft had.
Your assertion that Boeing rules and Airbus sucks is based on what?
For all us dingo stupid folks could you please expand on that!
If you want to fly on Boeing, go with someone like Alaska or Southwest, they have an all boeing fleet... If you want to fly on an airline that uses yokes rather than "joysticks" you can fly on American Airlines, every aircraft in their fleet is flown by a yoke... (Even though they have the A300, it has a yoke)... (not to mention that the A300 sees only a few routes...)
The fact is, if you are sitting anywhere but those two seats up front, you will not know the difference, and you wont be able to tell the difference by the way the airplane is flown, weither you think you can or not...
Boeing does rule. Well, Southwest, Continental, and US airways are 3 of about 1,000 airlines that use Boeing. you can research which airliners use Boeing and which ones use Airbus.
Well you get to chose which airlines you apply for. And than they chose if they like you and want you. Than you have a small say in what type of plane you get to fly.
My advice to you, dont start thinking about flying airliners right now! Start thinking about starting you flight training. How are you going to pay for it? Are you going to go to the Air Force? Do you really want to be a pilot? etc.. Dont start worrying about Joystick flying and non-joystick flying. Trust me there are alot of pilots that would much rather fly an A330 or A340 than there Yoke Dash-8 or 727s.
