(There's a related question Do two of the same model of aircraft feel different to fly? already. But:
- It's not about airliners, and most of the answers concern other aircraft.
- Not one of the answers discusses feel - subjective experience. They discuss performance, position and orientation of controls, where the air-vents are, the lighting - but not how it feels (or sounds or even smells). I'm concerned with this subjective experience.)
By "different airliners of the same type" I mean examples of exactly the same model in the same configuration with the same engine options.
By "feel" I mean how the aircraft responds and behaves, as experienced subjectively by the pilot.
Given a pair of cars of the same model in the same configuration, after a year or so you might well find that one feels different: the steering in one may be twitchier or looser, the clutch bites differently, the brakes respond sooner, it bounces more excitedly over bumps, the gear lever is stiffer.
There may also be different noises from the suspension, or sound from the engine at idle. Perhaps one car smells different on wet or hot days.
Are similar subjective differences apparent to pilots of different examples of the same airliner?
