How Many Airlines Have You Experienced?

There are many airline experts on these threads but to judge the industry well you need to see how the other side lives and operates.
So I am looking for the worlds airline expert.....

Who has flown the most airlines?
List 'em all, BUT do not include affiliate companies, only the FLAG CARRIER.

I track them in a spread sheet. After I see what you can bring to the table I will give my global total unless someone beats me.
For instance in Europe alone I have only flown
KL, BA, BCAL, AirUK, AF, AZ, SN, LH, Easy Jet, Ryanair, KLM, MP, IB, FI, Transavia, and more.

This has taught me about Euro Service levels.

What have you learned about our global industry from the airlines?


Some people don't get it. Business is about making MONEY!
