Mark me down for KLM. I've flown on them more then any other airline and have enjoyed every flight with them. Staff have always been friendly and professional. Their product is simple, but it works. Their long-haul fleet is fantastic, B767, B777, A330, MD11 and B747. Not to mention their AMS hub.

I would say for friendly service Air NZ. The bests and most genuine acts I have seen where FA's go out of the way for PAX have been on NZ. However this does not seem to be with all the FA's. The majority are great but there are a few that let the airline down. In this respect, Air NZ do lack consistency.
As far as consistant good service goes, I would say CX and SQ.
The ideal case would be the top NZ FA's mixed with the very good consistency of SQ and CX, maybe even MH.

Asia: SQ or CX (can't choose)
Europe: LH (not long haul though)
North America: UA or US (due to star alliance points)
South America: no idea
Middle East: EY (heard great stories), but EK has better connections
Africa: No idea

I've always had a great love of United Airlines, and always enjoy flying with them when I cross the Atlantic. They have a proud history which includes many aviation firsts, I like their livery and they have one of the nicest workforces & uniforms in the American airline industry.
Controversially, I'm going to throw in Ryanair as one of my favourite airlines. They run an efficient operation, have brought the cost of flying right down, have sparked the economies of many regions with their flights and provide the most affordable service in town as you only pay for what you use.

You won't face any opposition from me there.
I'm loyal, and I'll stick with them if needed, until they give me reason not to.
I've made 6 return journeys in the last 3 months that I couldn't have made if it wasn't for them. I like the livery too, if not the cabin.
Other than that, short haul I'll second BA for comfort, if not service.
Long Haul it's VS for me, with nothing coming close to it. AY are 'good' as are SAS. But not as good.
I'm to make my first trips on Aer Lingus, United and American in the next 6 weeks. Ask me again then.
