B-727 = BOB (Beast of Burden)

Have heard both CRJs and ERJs referred to as Barbie Jets.

MD-80 = Mad Dog
ERJ = Angry Poodle (or Baby Mad Dog!)

Continental's FAs call the MD-80 the "Slave Ship" because it is a pain in the @$$ to work those long-hauls to the coast.

The 328JET ... call it the Do-Jet, Dork-Jet, or Homer-Jet (D'oh!).

A Mesaba friend called the Avros "the roadblock of the flight levels."

My old DC-9 instructor called everything ever built in Seattle "that Boeing trash" ... really hurt his feelings when Boeing bought his old "Douglas Cable" builder!
