So what name do you like the most? I have always liked the name of the former Legend Airlines.

I think Garuda Indonesia sounds very nice.

Although, in the middle of all those South American typicall "Aerosomething" or "Lineas Aereas Something", "Lan Chile" sounds incredibly cool for a state owned carrier

Yea, those Southa names are so not creative.

non-aero or Lineas Aereas airlines in Sotham:

-Avianca
-LAN
-VARIG
-TAM
-Mexicana
-Copa
-TACA

What a shame.....


BTW: Also add Emirates and DBA.

As my screen name suggests, I like "Aeroflot" the best. Translated from Russian: Air Fleet. Probably kind of obvious without the translation.

Definately Jetsgo - a clever play on words. The name and smiley face on the tail just make me smile. A close second - Hooter's Air.

"Gruesome Twosome" awards go to - Bmi Baby (sounds tacky), SN Brussels Airlines (boy did they have to thrash that one out at the meeting)

Honourable mentions go to - Qantas, Lan Chile, Aer Lingus - all sound very cool, and worthy of being an airline!

Outright Winner for today goes to - Cathay Pacific - I love seeing their 744s at LHR, seem 100% more exiting than any others! Great name

I go for the airlines with the names of their countries in the name.
Like NZ, SQ, SA)">AA, BA, AF, MH, BI, KE, JL, LX, TG, SA, CI...

You get the idea, seems more patriotic.

Aeroflot and Aer Lingus both mean Air Fleet....

SN Brussels is really bad.
