ISP-original home airport
MYR/CHS-frequently used new home airports
US Airways-second favorite and second-most frequently flown. Plus they take a lot of crap even though I've had far worse experiences on other airlines.
E-190- favorite aircraft
CLT-Favorite place to connect.

MSP-Something like 60% of my flights either start or end at MSP.
BOS-Actually hate the airport itself. But that's where the bug bit me. Smile every time I see it.
DL-Folks are Diamond and Gold. Overwhelming majority of my flying is on DL. Usually around 90% in any given year. I was a NW fanboy, but have gotten over the merger and DL is king.
777-Just a stunner of an aircraft in my opinion. No flights thus far, but hope to in the near future.
Cessna 172-Strange as it is so common. But I just love that airplane. Got my license in it, getting my instrument in it now. Just a great aircraft to fly IMO. How much do I love it? I named my dog Cessna.

Im a huge fan of boeing due to their (McDonnell Douglas) involvement in military aviation. Of course now I'm more interested in civil aviation but a while back, all the aircraft I knew were military aircraft.

- Genuine Premium Economy. Not Space plus. Esp TK,CX
- 4 abreast J Class. Doesn't matter the SQ or NZ or CX or BA style. 2-3-2 doesn't cut it any more
- NH longhaul 787. The first but still the best version. NH in general is the best airline in the world for Y class that I have experienced.
- Any airline that isn't QR/EK/EY affiliated.
- Star Alliance. Too many carriers probably - but I have flown many of the airlines in the Alliance and I do like the accessibility of perks around the world.. Still need SK/TP/A3/TG/LO/OZ to complete the set.
- MDD/Douglas. I just go mad for them when I see them.

Airport: BDL: hometown airport growing up, living in NYC it's impossible to be a JFK/LGA 'fanboy'
Airframe OEM: Boeing/McDonnell Douglas
Commercial A/C Long-Haul: B767-400ER: know this a/c has gotten a bad rap on the site, but B777 like experience with 2-3-2 config in Y, tough to beat
Commercial A/C Medium-Haul: B757-200: true workhorse, love the t/o when she's lightly loaded in the winter
Commercial A/C Short-Haul: MD-88/MD-90: 3-2 seating, rear mounted engines, solid Y experience
Personal A/C: Pilatus PC-12: My dream personal a/c, would settle for a Mooney or Cirrus

I don't do fanboyism and I don't do loyalty to commercial enterprises other than my own employer. Although the 744 is my favorite plane just because it's so darned gorgeous.
Lately, I've been happy with:
As in all of these things have been doing well (Airbus has been doing well with their A350 program as far as running it [mostly] on schedule, DL has been doing a great job at being an airline, and DTW went from an armpit to a world-class airport).
When they all start to go pear-shaped, I'll no longer be a fan.

I'm a fanboy of aviation, and anything to do with aircraft. If I was a fanboy to any one airport, airline, alliance, or cabin I would be mighty bored.
I will say, however, that I make any effort possible to fly up front. Even if "upfront" is something like Big Front Seat on NK, or Even More Space on B6. Even F class prices on US Legacies seem to be dropping, for example, FLL-ATL-BOS-ATL-FLL on the same day can be had for as little as $483 in Delta First Class on certain Tuesdays.
