isn't airtran considered a LCC ?

And is Alaska really that small? They have quite a large presence on the west coast. (maybe small in an international view?)

My favorite Legacy is by far NW. TW was my old favorite

WN is my favorite LCC

I like Skyteam too.

I have not flown on any of the smaller carriers so I don't have a favorite.

My two most favorite airlines are Midwest and Delta. I also liked Midwest Express, but Midwest is a great replacement.

But out of all the airlines in the US, Horizon Air takes the cake for the best airline.
Never once have they let me down, and no other airline has ever come close to matching up.

Network (a/k/a Big 6): Continental
Non-Network (everyone else): JetBlue
Alliance: SkyTeam

In order of preference:
Network: CO, AA, DL, UA, US, NW*
Non-Network: B6, FL, AS, YX, WN (have not flown Frontier, Sprit, or Allegiant)

* in fairness to NW, I have not flown on them in over 10 years..on the other hand, I hated MEM, so until I fly them again they come in last. Sorry, NW.

The only legacies I will fly with are AA and CO. AA is my favorite because they have more flights out of LAX. I hate UA. They pissed me off one too many times.
