I may be biased, but I like UA's boarding passes (I wouldn't say so if I didn't!). Either gold or light blue (gold=better seat!), with the sweeping "U" in the upper right and a faint world map across the card. Very classy!

My favourite (there is, of course, a bit of a bias here) is QF's boarding pass. It's very nice, not too complex, very clear, uncluttered, and easy to read. Other nice ones include HA and UA. Southwest's on the other hand, is terrible! Just a plain, very cluttered, B & W slip of paper........also, Scenic Airlines' passes are pretty much rock bottom........they're just small pieces of normal orange paper with your name and seat on it, that's about it.
Boy, I'm getting too caught up in this thread.......they're just boarding passes!

Gosh, I despise those AA passes that come out of the self check-in machines. They're basically on fax paper. I think United has nice boarding passes. I can't complain about Cathay's, Virgin's, Dragonair's, and British Airways' either! (But, the Air Canada one sorta pisses me off.)

This may come as a surprise (yeah right!), but I think JetBlue has the best boarding pass. It's just simple. There's a piece of partially ripped paper with your seat number, confirmation number, flight number, date of travel, boarding time, and trublue number. It's stapled to a slightly larger (after the gate agent rips it) piece of paper that has a part of JetBlue's contract of carriage, and on the other side it says, "Please be on bard at least 10 minutes prior to departure - we don't want to leave you behind!" This boarding pass is small, easily folds for my pocket, and gets the job done. With US Airways, you need a whole envelope to carry your boarding passes!
Also, if you're traveling with more than one person, only one person has to hold the boarding pass. That's because more than one boarding pass can be stapled on one contract of carriage notice.
