Hi ! I just wandering in which airline you had your best flight ever, in which route and which aircraft?

For me I think it was from JNB to JFK on an A343 SAA
it was very comfortable, great service, friendly crew and great entertainment system on board for a 16 hr flight!

Thanks! What about you?

My favorite flight was on the fourth of July two years ago from FNT-CVG. The flight was completely empty so my dad and I decided to non-rev on it. Me and him were the only ones on the plane. Service was great and our drinks never went empty. While we were flying we were able to see lots of fireworks going off all around the plane, it was pretty sweet.

My best flight ever was in one of these:

Took off from the grass strip at Tecumseh, Michigan (where the airplane was built in 1941), did some wing-overs, flew low, and enjoyed the smell of hayfields and the sound of wind through the wires.

the 23rd of September last year, LHR-JFK on VS0415... It was on an A340-600 (G-VGOA), in Premium Economy... the flight only took 7 hours, but BOY I wish it took 7 more  Silly I just loved every minute.

Great service, awesome seat, top notch IFE, the GREATEST cabin... just ace!

I'd say IAD-LHR in Easter '03 on BA, great service and crew, almost made it worth coming back to cold Britain  Wink.
Nothing was too much for the cew, for example, I have never been one to sleep on aircrafts, even on 11hr long LHR-LAX flights,the crew noticed I was awake, and so regulary came round topping up drinks and making sure I wasn't hungry and that I was fine, always with a smile and truly enjoying their job, best flight and crew I've ever had.
Also in a near 2nd was LHR-LAX last summer during the BA catering problem, the crew made up 100% for the lack of food, I spent a few hours (!) talking to them, and were genuinely interested in what I said (and visa-versa).
So far haven't flow anyone with better crew than BA  Smile

Mine was proably...

Qatar Airways
London Heathrow to Doha
Airbus A330-300
August 2005

Flight left LHR in the Evening, perfect weather, smooth flight and a superb sunrise en-route to DOH  Smile

I was in Y class, the aircraft was only weeks old and brand new, the flight was only 60-70% full due to the death of King Fahd. (Flight was due to be full but the flight was during the mourning period of King Fahd)

Superb service and excellent aircraft, even featured blue cabin lighting which was awesome  Smile

Plus a excellent approach into DOH, DOH is a wonderful city  Smile

BA001 Concorde: LHR-JFK September 2002 (by Fbgdavidson Oct 14 2004 in Trip Reports)

Best from a while back, that wasn't written up was BKK-LHR in BA First from summer 2001 at the end of a holiday in Thailand with my brother and parents. There were only a couple of other passengers in the cabin, the service was incredible all the way back to LHR. My best F flight to date  thumbsup 

Hopefully I'll be adding LHR-CPT in BA F next month to my list of best flights...  Smile

Not really an int'l traveler. Best flight ever.... DL447 LAS-JFK on Feb 14, 2005. It was on a 757. The flight itself was great....best meal service I've ever had on DL. It was scallops with risotto, IIRC. At this point, F still had real tablecloths and glasses. It was 2 months before DL cut out "real" F service on domestic flights, and about 3 months before DL gave song all of their transcon. routes.

Till now DXB-Melbourne on EK A345... Such a wonderful flight... the ICE is a wonderful toy, the A345 was A6-ERJ which had nearly a month of service when I took it the 5th of October and it was such a silent plane... I enjoyed each minute of the 14 hours of flight...Obviously a window seat and a nice view of Maldives enroute as well. The only little problem I could find was the legroom... not that good. But I just love to be seated at the windowseat with only one seat to pass for the toilet... A wonderful A340/A330 feature.
The landing was impossible to notice.... so soft... amazing.
I've still to try an EK A343 flight PER-DXB the 24th... Looking forward to this experience really a lot

I would say either a summer 2003 flight from MCO-ATL on a 767-400ER, or a spring 2005 flight from ATL-TPA, also on a 767-400ER.

It's a tough choice, but I would say these were my best ever:

VS SFO-LHR in Upper Class 747-200

BA JFK-LHR in Business 747-400

SN BOS-BRU in Business A-310

GF LHR-BAH and BEY-BAH in Business A-340

and finally, a quick test flight on a Scenic Airlines Ford Tri-Motor from LAS to LAS.

My favorite flight was from MEX to LHR on BA. Since it was Christmas, the flight was half empty and we got upgrade from Coach to First Class.

It's not just the destination, it's the journey.

My best flight was CO from BHX-EWR in BusinessFirst.Great seats , even though it was a 757, but best of all was crew/meal service.
I have flown many(toomany) times but this service EX UK was the best.
Meal at a leisurley pace but not too long between courses. Then a couple of hours after that a smell of Chocolate chip cookies being baked on board started the taste buds again , served with good coffee. Then an afternoon tea service with real Devon Cream and scones.... Ii could hardly walk off at the other end!! The cabin crew were interesting and wanted to talk .
Just a great flight
