Since I'm a passenger flights and general airlines enthusiast, I'd like to plan my travels and trips also depending on information on which kind of aircraft I'll be or can travel from point A to point B. For this reason, I'd like to ask some questions like "What is the shortest in-Europe commercial route that I can travel on Boeing 747" etc.

This particular question is found off-topic on Aviation.se and I was told that these kind of questions are also generally off-topic for that site.

And on Travel.se? Can such questions be on-topic here or should I avoid asking them here as well?

  • sounds great to me.

That sounds on-topic to me. If it's a journey you want to do, as a traveller, then it seems askable here. We've even got a bunch of factoid questions, which do get a mixed response, but are generally left open.

(We've got questions about longest train/bus journeys etc).

As ever, some specifics to narrow things down a little often help make it more of a "real" question and less "gather lots of data for me".


I most certainly think that such a question would be entertained here, as long as you stay on-topic (and make it useful also for other users).

For your particular question, while not exactly the same, I think this would be a good starting point for further research:

How to find and compare flights carried out by a specific type of plane?


I've personally never liked these questions for the site whether or not I've liked them as interesting stuff.

However, the users as a group have accepted them. This is the precise type of question the was created for.

Usually they're not for problems faced by a traveller but for biggest longest shortest fastest quietest highest kinda stuff.
