I was going to think Pan American World Airways but I am kinda biased since TWA is originally from Western Air Express, and for obviously reason, that I am choosing TWA over Pan American World Airways.

Mr. 717---How do you know they are on-time 90% of the time?? I'm not aware of any statistics published for this airline. If they really had 90% on-time performance, wouldn't they voluntarily report it to the DOT, like Aloha does? Or did you happen to just see that the flight you booked was ranked as 90% on-time in the CRS?

I also think TWA is the worlds greatest airline. They probably have the longest list of aviation firsts. I fly TWA regularly and enjoy there wonderful service and beautiful aircraft. Its ashame I wont be for too much longer. We must remember this is probably the best thing that has happened to TWA and its employees in a very long time.

I have a love for the airliners of the Golden Era; no, not the 707 or 747 but the Stratocruiser and Lockheed Constellation.
I realize that the Constellation was designed for TWA and indeed they had them in service, but nothing beats the combination of Clippers such as Clipper Golden Gate, Clipper Flying Cloud, Clipper Sovereign of the Skies (OK, bad example) and all the Connies to boot.
After all, they were (and, ideally, still would be) 'The Chosen Instrument'.

Certinly not American!!!!!!!! Why I hate them:
They harass and terrorize other Airlines. Airlines they killed are:
and probaly more. They have the RUDEST employees and some of their planes suck. I have had some good flights with them, but I am loyal to United along with others and they are certinly my first priority!!!

From the airlines I;ve flown I would have to say TWA all the way . Too bad they will disappear soon but they are the best in the air.
The best C/S must go to Saudi Araibian Airlines.
