I fly UA religiously. But if I weren't beholden by Mileage Plus, and if I were to pay for F/C rather than using miles, I would most likely fly Virgin America and Jet Blue domestic, and Lufthansa and El Al international.

I fly HA religiously and have logged almost 225 flights on their Boeing 717's. My other favorite was UA and I flew them religiously too and it was a deep favorite too....until a couple of years ago when I was "forced" to take AA on a business trip and, well changed my "religion" LOL.

I use KLM Cityhopper and AF Regional a lot, only for the reason that I have no other options on 2 segments I shuttle on, AMS-STR and AMS-SXB, there is no warm feeling for Skyteam although I accumulated half a million miles and have Platinum status from the old KLM Royalwing on....
As an European carrier, I prefer LH over AF/KL and in the Middle-East Emirates and Qatar Airways.

My fave airline is by far Virgin Australia - initially started with their previous incarnations of Virgin Blue and Pacific Blue, but they have top service, my favourite aircraft type (737), and I'm not particularly trusting of QF. When it comes to international flights, it depends where I'm going - if I fly to New Zealand its typically on NZ on the BNE-AKL sector, then DJ back to BNE out of any other port. But almost anywhere other than New Zealand it would have to be SQ by far - flew them to LHR last year and with their top quality service, newer aircraft, cheaper airfares, preferred arrival times to where I'm interesred in flying, and I can earn my flyer points in my DJ flyer account is a bonus.

My favourite airline is EK hands down
However, given that about 85% of my flying is Australian domestic I rarely fly them even when heading to Europe
I guess my "preferred" carrier is QF (and by default any other OW carrier) - I have never had a problem with any of them. QF long-haul is (on a good day) as good as EK, CX are also very good, and there is nothing particularly wrong with BA or AA. But I just don't get the same 'warm and fuzzy glow' on QF or CX that I do on EK

Living in NZ and most trips being Trans-Tasman or domestic, Air NZ is my most flown airline but is far from my favorite
My favorite airline is definitely SQ, but with SIN being so far away I don't get the privelege too often, and even though I'm somewhere in Asia pretty much every year, SQ prices are often too prohibitive compared to the other carriers

My favorite airline I've ever flown on is SQ, but they don't fly US Domestic! Which is 90% of my trips, i fly probably 90% of those on WN, i like them but given a choice i would choose B6 as my favorite US airline. (VX i am trying you guys in a couple of months so that might change my mind )

When I fly I try for a JetBlue flight...as they are my preferred carrier. Though if Southwest has a good fare then I'm ok with them as well. Bags fly free and a decent frequent flyer program goes a long way. Sadly, there is an airline or two I will avoid like the plague!
