As a drequent flyer, I would have to say that CATHAY PACIFIC provides the most fantastic service, food, leg room, value and on-time performance. I have tried Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Qantas, Virgin, Malaysia Airlines and Japan Airlines and the overall ratings for the BEST AWARD goes to:

CATHAY PACIFIC - THE HEART OF ASIA. There service philosophy "Service Straight from the Heart" is so true. The airline has always got me to my meetings on time, and refreshed after ultra long-haul flights.

Well Done Cathay Pacific and look forward to travelling with you soon. It's new First Class sleeper seats add the privacy and comfort rival any flying beds I have tried (this includes SQ's, BA, QF and more recent the Swissair new first class). The CX first class truely provides the comfort and privacy throughout the journey along with very friendly cabin crew who are willing to go out of their way to ensure the customers recieve the ultimate in service delivery.

Hi Iain!

The best service I've had so far is on EVA airways on their 747 and MD11 Evergreen Deluxe class.
Seats are 24 inches wide and the pitch is 38 inches!
Business class it is!
Inflight service was very good, on time performance too.
Since they started in 1991, they have a very young and well maintained fleet of 5 B747-400, 10 747-400 combis, 3 MD11, 3 B767-300 and two 767-200's.
You'll have to pay about $100 extra per sector, but it is worth it.
We went to New Zealand in 1998, and were pretty fit after a 35 hour flight trip.
The only thing against them is that if you have to change aircraft in Taipei, you'll have to wait pretty long, because their schedule doesn't really fit together yet.

grtz, Axe.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

I vote for Continental too, I've seen them in their bad times, and their good, and they have come a long way, and haven't stopped moving ahead. Slowly becoming a world class airline!

I know it's a little off topic, but have any of you been on the A340's CX leases from Air China? Apparently, they've been bundled into service without a retrofit, and they have drawn a lot of unfavourable attention from customers, givent that they're paying the same price for an inferior product....
Back on the topic, I would have to say that, generally, MAS, and SQ, and Emirates were the best airlines I have flown on, CX also deserves a mention....

Yeah... I have flown CX's A340s leased from Air China
pretty disappointed about the plane and the entertainment ( BKK - HKG ) but the service is still okay..

Routes CX uses A340 on ( as stated by their A340 entertainment guide for mainscreen found in the seat pocket on my flight )

From airlines I´ve flown I would vote:
Singapore Airlines as No.1 on long haul flights
Silk Air on short haul (extremely friendly and even better looking stewardesses than on SIA!)
Inside Europe I can give Crossair very good notes, even if I don´t like their noisy planes.

An this: The readers of Germanys "Manager Magazin" just voted Cathay Pacific No.1 for long distance, Lauda Air for shorter flights. Runners up for long distance include SIA and QF.
