Should I mend my ways? The way you describe is how the Boeing people that I know do it: "seven-twenty-seven", "seven-thirty-seven", etc. The exception is the 777 for which they prefer "seven-seven-seven". Also, I went through the Everett tour last year, and this is how they did it. Now: does anyone know how to pronounce "Boeing 314"? :-) --- David K.
