I guess if you want a chance to fly one of those things, Emirates should be high on your applications list...

Am I the only one that winces when I hear Flight Deck? Freaking PC madness. Just call it a cockpit.

Tillers on the right side are an option with both Airbus and Boeing, ANA's 767's have tillers on the right side and the F/O's taxi on their sectors

Airbuses have "flight decks" and Boeings "cockpits." :)

Airbuses being more spacious than the tight fit Boeings have up front in comparison. Not just between the knees, but overall space. The 340 is like a livingroom compared to a 744.

I call it cockpit on all PA's and checklists. I never understood "Flight Deck"--we are in an airplane not an ocean liner here. Call it what it is.
