Which airplane am I flying with?
Is it a double-decker airplane? How are the seats distributed? Do I have enough legroom? To answer these questions, it is useful to know which airplane you are flying to your destination with. Read all about it in this blog.
How to find out which airplane you are flying with
Before you can find the airplane, you must first choose your destination. Don’t know where you want to go yet? Get inspired first. After you have chosen your destination and dates Vayama can compare all flight tickets. Now you can see which airplane flies to your destination.
The detailed flight details shown in the image appear when you click on flight details, under the airline logo on the left.

On a flight to Bangkok with Emirates, you will be boarding a Boeing 777-300ER. Also, you can see straight away that you are guaranteed 32 inches of legroom in economy class and which facilities are available.
These are the most common airplanes
When looking into common airplanes, we distinguish between short- or medium-haul flights and long-haul flights. So that you can preapprove your airplane before taking off.
Short-and medium-haul flights
If you are flying to a country within the USA or within Europe, chances are you will be boarding an Airbus A320 or a Boeing 737-800. Our database shows that these airplanes are most often used for those (shorter) flights. The Airbus A320 has four types: the A318, the A319, the A320, and the A321. The lower the number, the smaller the airplane.
If you are flying to a destination a bit further away, chances are you will be boarding an Airbus A380, an Airbus A330-300, Airbus A350, Boeing 777, or Boeing 787.
