If you could have a free ticket with any airline that serves your home airport, assuming it was for a direct flight only, where would you go?.

My home airport is STN so it would have to be either EL Al on a 738 through to a 757 to a 767 and ending up in mid August using a 744,all to Tel Aviv or any of the other charter carriers that takes me to the Middle East.

If not, then, a charter operator that takes me to the Sunshine State in the US

Where would you go, assuming it's a direct flight?

Do cargo flights count? If so, I would want to go to Tokyo with LH Cargo.

If not, I guess I would like to go to YDA (Dawson City) with Air North, if only to ride on a HS748.

From GFK, I'd be forced to accept MSP.  cry 

From NYC, the choices are a lot better. I'd probably go for one of these:

Even though I just stepped off the flight on Friday morning, I'd get myself an SAA ticket right back to South Africa... not sure though if I'd fly to Jo'burg or Cape Town...

Thai to BKK...the idea of going to the far east, with an Asian carrier and on a 744 sounds good enough.

I assume that by direct you don't necessarily mean nonstop, right?

In that case, I'd take GUA-MAD with IB. Although their flight MAD-GUA is nonstop, the GUA-MAD stops at SJO (the runway @ GUA does not allow for a nonstop return flight)

Otherwise, it would be a difficult choice... maybe HAV with Tikal Jets, or MEX with either TA or MX. Or PTY with CM. Actually, a free ticket to anywhere is welcome!

What do I know, I'm just an 'immature troublemaker with only a passing interest in aviation' (or so they say)

At JAX, I don't know where all continue to on the west coast, so based on only the non stops I would have to pick ORD or LGA

My home airport is EWR (note my screen name). I would probably want to take the longest flight available out or EWR, and the current longest non-stop scheculed pax flight - EWR-SIN-EWR on SQ, Raffles/1st Class of course.

CX first class SYD-HKG-CDG . . . preferably arriving in time to see the Tour de France.  Big grin

Other than that AC SYD-YVR-YYC.

Or, domestically, SYD-BME (cos it is so expensive to visit the Kimberleys!!!).
