Do you prefer to select the flight aboard which to fly based upon the airline? For instance, several years ago I had the option of flying KL or KQ AMS-LHR. I chose KQ because it is rarer and more interesting than KL. I think I would always prefer to fly aboard rarer airlines, where money allows.

In rough order of importance:
* Airline preference
* Frequent Flyer mile maximizing (sort of goes with airline, but not always - I've always been pretty happy with DL, but I haven't used them much since moving to New York, so I don't have any miles in that account.)
* Departure airport (JFK vs LGA vs EWR)
* Connecting hub (if any, there's a few I'd prefer to avoid, especially in the winter)
* Arrival airport (mainly for LA - prefer to go into BUR over LAX, etc.)
