I really like the Northwest compas pointing to the northwest. I also like the Finnair flying F that looks like a DC9. Lufthansa's bird looks very cool.
What are some other favorites?

I like SIA's logo as well as US Airways' flag. US Airways' symbol is simple but very nice I think.

My number one is shared by two airlines... They are the maple leaf of Air Canada and the Lufthansa crane. Btw: The Lufthansa one is the oldest airline symbol around! Lufthansa already used it in 1926 when they first started service as Deutsche Luft-Hansa.

Definately Continental Airlines. Secondly would be Northwest - I think it's so cool how the lettering could be an 'N' or a 'W'.

Stay cool,
Matthew
