Okay guys i've been here for nearly 3 months but sometimes it's really sad and upset that there are arguments beteen different people of different airlines and conflicts.
So maybe this time let's forget our FAVOURITE airline, but actually say if you're proud or not proud of your country's major airline or the country you're now in.Forget your favourite airline, or arguments would definetly be seen in this forum!!
So I'm an Aussie and I'm in Hong Kong at the moment.I'm actually very, very proud of......
I will always be proud of their excellent service on both domestic and international routes (Never travelled on International but heard it was great).Hope things will be better in the future for Ansett Mark II!
Comparing with other Mainland China Airlines, i should say Dragonair is way better than most Mainland China airlines when Dragoair's network streches over China!For Cathay, I'm also proud!But also say that if pilots and the managements could have fewer conflicts and no-more negative news of strikes, leasing Mainland China planes to operate for CX i would be even prouder!Again Way To Go, KA and CX!

Well I'm from the UK and I have no special feelings for any of the carriers there, however its a fact that BA is one of the best.
I now live in Hong Kong and CX is one of the best in the world, my best friend (CXFlyboy) is a pilot at CX and my sister in law is a Senior flight attendent with KA so I guess I have more of a feeling for these two carriers than the airlines in my country of birth.

Totally agree with you Airmale, but without that Sydney2000!
HKSPOTTER1:Yeh i should also be proud of BA because Hong Kong was once under British control!Virgin is also my cup of tea, not Virgin Blue though!
Sin777er and Another777fan : Too bad I'm not a Singaporean, but i'd be proud if i live in SIN...because SQ is one of my favourite and best airlines in the world!
Maybe you guys should also add Singapore Airlines Cargo too!

I'm from Singapore and what else could be better than Singapore Airlines? The finest First Class, full beds in Business, and the new Economy. Pretty FAs, the service that even other airlines talk about, one of the youngest fleets, and a great safety record.

I'm from the US, and while don't have a "national" carrier, I'm very proud of my hometown airline, AA. I know some of you don't like U.S. airlines, but it makes me feel proud to board my AA 777-200 when I'm at NRT, ZRH, CDG, LGW, or at what ever foriegn airport. I look at it's silver body and swept up wings with the red, white, and blue stripe down its side as I walk down the jetway, give her a pat on the side before I enter the door, and say, "take us home babe."

I live in Canada and I am proud of Canada 3000, I believe that the way they have grown from a small charter airline to the second largest airline in Canada is great. On the other hand, I am not proud of Air Canada (I know they are the national carrier...but) after they got privatisted in 1989 they still have been getting help for years from the government (ie.$$$). And they have been allowed to have a monopoly of the airline industry here in Canada.
I like British Airways! I'm not sure why, but I do! ;-)

I live in the UK and THE best airline we have here is Virgin Atlantic (Overides BA anyday!) but I also am a massive fan of the national airline of my half homeland Ireland - Aer Lingus. Lets just hope EI can pull through the trouble somehow.
