I trust JAT because they have one of the toughest pilot schools in the world. Also, the accidents that JAT was involved in were almost never due to pilot error.
I also trust Eeastern European, especially now that they are almost all using all-western fleets. The pilots of these airlines used to fly Russian planes which (I think) is a lot tougher than Western planes.
Basically, I am happy with airlines that have good safety records.
I wouldn't fly Korean and on very old Russian planes (i.e. YAK-40) belonging to some back-water airline nobody has ever heard of.

TR try South African Airlines I heard that they are very good in terms of service and safety. They also have newer aircraft.
The airlines I trust the most are;
Jet Airways of India
Air New Zealand
British Airways (I've had problems (mainly employee rudness and some racists employees that got ugly with me during a recent JFK-LHR flight)with them which why I'm now going to Virgin for tran atlantic trips.
Air India Too many delays mechanical problems and security problems.
NorthWest ( Highest complaints according to D.O.T reports including the planes that got stuck in the snowstorm with full loaded passengers for 8 hours at Detriot Metro)

it all depends on the safety record and type and age, i would not fly with KAL or China airlines and i would not fly a 25 year old 747 overseas and anyday, i would not fly a russian aircraft, i would fly boeing or airbus any day

The airlines I can put my faith in the most:
For safety: QANTAS
For service: Ansett and Singapore Airlines
For animals in the cabin and shocking condition of
aircraft: Myanma Airways (not MAI)
For attempted landing on a highway: Garuda (people in Perth will know what I am talking about)
For serving you food to make you want to throw up: Aeroflot (the old Soviet airline, not ARIA)
For giving you upgrades: Just about any airline I have flown with

Though they could improve service on the ground (got better in the last year, thank god) I always feel very safe onboard Lufthansa planes. I had a hundred or so flights with them - when it comes to a safe allround feeling they are my clear favourites.
Don´t have enough experience with Qantas, though...

Delta all the way, by far the best of the domestics.
worst? Alaska Airlines, let me tell you, as a former employee that company cares about NOTHING but money- everything including safety takes a back seat. Ask any pilot, flight attendant, Customer Service AGent or Ramper. They will all tell you the same thing whether they are current or former employees. Those still employed by the company would happily mutiny, I'm surprised it hasnt happened yet.

1. Cathay Pacific -- The best safety and maintenance, Rolls Royce powered.
2. Qantas Airways -- Great maintenance program and also RR powered.
3. British Airways -- Well maintained aeroplanes and product innovators.
4. Air New Zealand -- Good maintenance and high aircraft utilisation.
A message for GUNDU -- extreme assh***:
Your choice is very biased and I doubt SQ is the most trusted given its incident with Silkair which crashed off Indonesia 2 years ago.....how can I believe you on this....is this a joke or what....very misleading!!!
Gundu, you must be so sad that SQ didn't get to buy Ansett and Air New Zealand. I hope SQ doesn't get what they want. Also the Virgin deal with SQ is a laughing stock. No one takes Virgin seriously....they are a joke and a laughing stock and SQ has bought 49% of a laughing stock......bad choice.
