I would be really interested in seeing the menu of the meals being served onboard... this will be an advantage, because
1. it will give you an idea of what meal is being served onboard
2. you will be able to check whether you have any allergies towards the food being served onboard, and follow it up by ordering a special meal
3. take your own food onboard, specially if the food does not seem particularly appealing
4. check whether the meal being served onboard confirms to religious requirements (e.g, if the meals being served are pork, beef etc.), which would be particularly applicable to passengers who either dont order special meals, or hate special meals (like me)!
Also being able to check the details of a reservation directly from an airline website, rather than going to galileo or amadeus, and thus saving time (although a few seconds). I know some airlines already do that, but the majority of the ones I have visited don't.

I would like specific information on what services they offer in different classes. Also I like to see pictures of the seats in the different classes. Plus, I like the route map to be easy to read. For instance I have a hard time reading the route map on Continentals website.

Wish List for ideal website features
BA's booking system - Let's you see cheapest fare available not only on day you want to fly but up to a fortnight either side to find cheapest fare. Great for finding ideal cost/flight time options cheaply, with benefit of doing each leg separately to get combined total that cheapest/most convenient.
CO's seat reservation system - See what seats are available to pre-reserve when you book, with option to change as required.
QF's seat maps - full aircraft with galley and door locations (Not just one long line of seats)
BA's timetable - Shows for day you request, plus three days either side (a week!), showing direct and connecting flights, and scheduled aircraft.
BA/CO online check-in - Not tried any other airlines for this but these two both easy to use. Personal preference for BA, but only because no seats are reserved exclusively for frequent flier memebers.
Can go on but those four combined would make a pretty good reservation system online.

On my longhaul flights I always uses the companys webpage to see information about inflight entertainment and the to see info about the aircraft im flying with.
But I never uses it for shorter flights, unless I want to sw what aircraft they are using. But that usually is printed on the itinary I get from the airlines and find the aircraft here on A.net

Good things come to those who wait, better things come to those who go AFTER it!
