    Question preposition

    Do you want to travel on one of the speedy, giant airplanes?
    Here can "by" be used instead of "on"?
    Thanks

    Re: preposition

    Hi
    .
    I'd stick with "on" in your sentence.
    .
    You normally use "by" to talk about a means of transportation in more general (simpler) terms:
    by train, by car, by plane
    .
