"I Still Call Australia Home" with Qantas.
"Up up and Away" with the former TAA, although it was first used by, I think, TWA.
And, illogically, "Goodnight My Someone" from "The Music Man" with the original PanAm, as they used to play it when it got dark on international flights.

Actually not a specific one, I tend to associate each of my plane trips with the music I hear from the IFE program. So everytime I hear one of the songs again later, it gives me a kind of a good feeling. Thi sphenomenon even works if it would be a song or interprete I would normally steer clear of, but as we all know, the choice on board is limited.

I have this tape I bought in CLUB MED as a child. I play it relligiously whenever I fly. Whenever I play if I feel like I'm flying. Oh, and there is this song by the Beatles..."Fool on the Hill" that one connects me to AA because I first heard it on an AA MD-80 from LGA-MIA. Then I heard in about 100 times more on subsequent flights. Also that song that Delta used to use in commercials. Its like yadda yadda yama yame yame yame oh!

First thing that comes to mind is a passage from Mozart's opera, Don Juan -- the one where Leporello, Don Juan's faithful servant, tells the story of how many lovers his master has had across Europe, and at the end he boasts, proudly singing in loud Italian: "But in Spain... but in Spain, already one thousand and three!"
The reason is that I heard it recently on a Delta 777 flying ATL to Paris. IT was blasting in my headphones, I was slightly dizzy from the wine, and I was listening to glorious loud Mozart while shooting through the dark sky at 30 000 feet over the big blue ocean. I was so happy I wanted to scream! My seat mates must have been wondering why I had a smile from ear to ear.

"Question Of Balance" by the Moody Blues. It revives the feelings I had the first time I did a take off in a 727! The chorus of the song still brings back memories of the turn into broken clouds right after take off. I can still see/feel it when I hear this song!

"Learning to Fly" by Pink Floyd.
"Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles. When I was younger my older brother would let me borrow his tapes to play on my Walkman when we would fly somewhere. He had a lot of Beatles tapes. Since then, I always think of flying when I hear that song.
