I don't fly WN - why? Only because I fly every week and always more than one state away, so I have to fly out of DFW. If the Wright Amendment was gone, I might fly them every so often, but I am partial to first class for long trips

I don't avoid anything! I would fly anything with anyone. I would fly afghan airlines...if there is such an airline...just to experience it. I once asked my parents if they would fly EgyptAir to Cairo. They of course said no way but I would. I think I should mention that I asked them that after the 767 crashed in the Atlantic...opps. . But seriously...anything will do. I mean...I would guess all airlines are working to fly safe...they want to life also. And if we do crash, meh, guess we crash

I avoid them as much as possible, but I am stil very bitter at AA.
The legal BS they pulled in court crippled Legend Airlines from Day 1, then the Premium service aboard the Fokker F100s finished them off. They destroyed a great, original product that was no threat to AA.
If AA can only survive in DFW/DAL by crippiling its competition with the Wright Ammendemnt, they don't deserve to be in business IMO. So I will make my humble protest and send my business elsewhere.

Virgin Express is the only airline that I can think of that I'll never fly again!!!!! After my flight to London Heathrow was cancelled, the agents put all of the passengers on the next flight (which happened to be the last flight of the day) EXCEPT me because I was flying on a SkyMiles Award ticket and then refused to put me up in a hotel because my itinerary was booked through another airline. To add insult to injury, the agents charged me twice for my overweight luggage and then proceeded to lose two of my four bags.
When I finally got on a flight, they ran out of beverages (Virgin Cola of course!) by the time they were finished serving the sixth row - it was inexcusable!
The ONLY pleasant experience was getting a cabin attendant's phone number Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to call

Any commuter flight operated by Mesa is first because of their awful delays, terrible service and rude, unprofessional employees. United used to be, but I must hand it to them that they have improved greatly.

American Airlines is by far the worst airline I've ever flown. I've done about 4 r/t in the last two years (i travel between 12 and 18 r/t per year) and they were rude and they lost my baggage twice. I also dont like them for their 'evil' business pactices.

China Airlines (flag carrier of Taiwan) and Korean Air - for
safety. They ave been taking measures to improve, but such impressions take a while to change. Also avoid Air China (of China) - China Southern and China Eastern as better. Otherwise, I avoid airlines and airfares that don't pad my frequent flyer accounts!

As Aerosvit said, I think every airline is worth to fly just for the experience.
Anyway, although this altruistic though, I think I would be affraid all flight long it I tried:
The first is because I do not trust in Aerocontinente, their maintenance, their origin, their financial situation, the permissions. NOTHING Really. It seriously compete for the worst airline ever.
Cubana, because of those old USSR a/c, and I even don't know if their manufacturers still exist, or Cuban embargo pays for that.
Anyway, I would fly CU a million times over Aerocontinente.

I don't fly CO. I had a major problem with them back in 1981 (at the time of the TI/CO merger) and I told them "I will never fly your airline again", and they said that they could care less. I have kept my promise to them.....
Celebrating 23 years of not flying CO. I would rather walk! I will admit that I have a few freinds that are flight crew members with CO, but I still won't take CO.
I have related the story of what happened here in previous posts.

Actually, I know you are right. But I think the promise I made to them has taken on a life of it's own. The people involved are most likely no longer with the company, and I really should try them again sometime.
What's ironic is that I myself fly in and out of IAH all the time and you can imagine how many CO planes I encounter on the taxiways, aprons, etc.

Darned Employees Lie Through Afternoon...
Seriously, I refuse to fly Delta for one reason and only one reason: their customer service, including seemingly every single employee I have ever come in contact with (a small slice of the company, but as my mother simply goes for the cheapest fare, and that is often DL, I'm forced to fly them) is abysmal and rude...my mother can put me on Delta with her money, but if I have to spend the buck, you can bet that it'll go to United or US Airways first and second (in either order, preferably UA first, although I accrue Dividend Miles rather than Mileage Plus Miles due to US' extensive east-coast network), American after that, and then any airline that isn't Atlanta-based...

I would never fly Martin Air again. I did not like the way thier planes were set up inside, thier food sucked, their CSR's and f/a's were soooo rude to the passengers and the entertainment wass terrible. Other than that I have no problem with other airlines so far.

Ryanair, Easyjet... and all carriers alike!!!
I just don´t want to support them, while in the first place they of course do hurt legacy carriers like the one I fly for and also these airlines have absolutely no class or style and I don´t want these jokes of airlines to ruin the entire airline business and famous, well-known and traditional carriers!
Okay, now someone could say, well they offer airtravel at a reasonable fare for almost everybody! That might be true, but to be honest and hopefully without sounding arrogant, I really don´t want "EVERYBODY" to fly, if you know what I mean!
I´ve heard a lot of horror stories from a good friend of mine, who until recently took Ryanair quite often and frequently about the "flair" in the cabin on Ryanair flights and certain disgusting passengers!!!
Don´t get me wrong, that does definetley not mean that a full fare pax on a legacy carrier never acts disgusting, rude or maybe even totally unacceptable, there are a lot of them out there, but I guess that on LCC´s (at least the European ones with fares like €00,01,- plus tax) it is probably more likely to happen!
Well my friend doesn´t have to take Ryanair any longer because I promised to offer him buddy-passes wherever he wants to go, in return he had to promise to never again take a LCC... lol !!!
Sorry, to all LCC Lovers and Enthusiasts or workers out there...
I just don´t want this to become the future of airtravel, and I´m trying to help to keep at least a little "class" and "style" in airtravel!
I also think that I would try to avoid certain airlines in South America, Russia and Africa because of their safety, security, training and maintenance standards.
Put me on any US, European and most Asian carriers -not Low-Cost of course ,WN would be the only LCC for me to fly (on certain routes)- and I´ll be happy to go!
