    I don't like the cabin temps hot.
    If too warm I can't sleep and I never find a need to use the duvet.

    I wish on overnight flights in particular, that they would really turn down the temp in the cabins.
    Would love to hear how others feel on this issue.

    ** Find the 333s to be particularly warm.

    Me too! I'd prefer to ask for more blankets than be too hot. I find though I'm usually cold on the small aircraft (CRJs/DH3s) and hot on the widebodies...

    I don't fly the small aircraft, so can't really give an opinion on those. [​IMG]
    Usually, I am on the 777, 763 or 333

    Don't know a lot about the mechanics of the plane but couldn't they save on costs by lowering the temps?
    It's not like we can open a window. My favourite seat on the 777 is 6K which has TWO air vents above my head and I set those to blow full blast for the whole journey. I love the air blowing on my face.

    Don't the 767's have 3 blowers in the middle seat? :confused:

    Overly hot definitely bothers me versus overly cold. With overly cold, I can just put extra layers of clothing and/or ask for a blanket.

    Doesn't really matter to me. Regardless of the temp it'll feel hotter to me than you. I blame my naturally high body temperature on too many winters feeding cattle near YDQ.

    I always prefer cold, but it rarely happens. I can add an unlimited number of layers, but tend to get complaints if I take off many layers.

    My sick, demented and twisted way of stating this is, "You can always put on more clothes or get an extra blanket but you can only get so naked." That seems to always get them to turn down the temp. [​IMG]

    I am rarely hot on planes, so I could stand it being turned up a wee notch. I do dress appropriately for this though (layers, etc) and always put a blanket over me ASAP so it's never a problem.

    I prefer it when the temp is on the colder side, hate it when I get into an oven of a plane. I also love planes that have air vents, so if it is too hot at least I can get a bit of colder air as relief.

    Another vote for cold here. At home the thermostat goes down for the night. On an airplane it seems to go way up.

    I don't get it.

    I. Really. Don't. Get. It.

    It is great seeing all this feedback.
    Wish AC / pilots would see our comments.

    Anybody know about costs to the airline in regards to keeping the cabin temps hot or cold?
    If cheaper to keep it cooler, perhaps this would be a great cost-cutting path to persue.

    not AC related but I always find the temps too hot in the cabin upon boarding, whether its B747, B777 or A330

    but then a few hours into the flight, after I've sweat my ass off initially I get a little cold and use the duvet... there's gotta be a better temp management system

    On my main carrier LH the longhaul flights are usually too hot.
    Seems to be a trick applied by the FAs so that people get tired more quickly and sleep instead of asking for service....

    That's what I was told by a First class FA on an LH flight - that they love it when people sleep because they can rest (aka do nothing). Sure, in Y that's fine, but in F? WTH? (or should I try WTF to stay with the swearing crowd up above? :p)

    Colder for sure. Sweating over night is a waste of $$ for BF.

    Chilly. I can't stand it when it's too hot, you can't take much off. But when it's chilly, you can just put on a jacket or a blanket and be perfectly fine. Helps with potential sweating as well (and odors, particularly of others! ;-)).

    Interesting that the majority here prefers cooler temps, when it seems to me the crews think we want it warmer. Maybe the pax who want it warm complain more.

    (I vote for cooler, too)

    Cool is better. Especially on overnight flights where they want us to go to sleep. If we wanted a schvitz, we'd go to a sauna. If you want us to sleep during the flight, make it cool--not cold--and we'll nod right off.

    I agree, cold is definitely preferable. After all there's no "cold" blanket to put on!
