Airline: Ryanair = highly efficient, very admirable focus on costs, very good at doing what it does, extremely cheap fares (don't think I've ever paid more than £20-25 return incl. tax), superb punctuality, allows me to fly more often, etc.

Food store: difficult. Probably Safeway/Morrisons as that's the closest one to me now.  Silly

Store: Don't like shopping.

Internet Provider: I say, what? Oh, that. Dunno.

TV Channel: Normally watch BBC1 - don't have Sky or any digi stuff.

Airline: On what I've flown so far SQ for longhaul, EK or AZ for shorthaul.
Food store: The Italian Supermercato around the corner from Roma Termini station, it had cheap beer, lovely food and Italian chicks that make you into a walking hard-on.
Store: It isn't a store per se, I don't like shopping in really mainstream shops. The best place to shop for clothes is Camden Market. It's cheap and there's a lot of variety.
Internet Provider: Woosh
TV Channel: Either Discovery Channel or History Channel with UKTV close behind. - However my currently being filmed show is Scrubs.

LOL. It does what it does very well indeed: travelling people from A to B quickly, safely, punctually, and, if you're lucy, cheaply. It is a essentially a bus service in the air, which makes it especially good: you know exactly what you will get.

Anyway, this is neither the time nor the place to debate this, so shut up old man.  Silly

Airline: United Airlines, they bumped me up to C (well my Y ticket hadn't been cheap anyway) on FRA-IAD and made IAD-SJO a great experience with friendly and dedicated service.

Food store: that Italian store in my town that has a load of great antipasti and other Italian food

Store: IKEA, too. It's one of the few stores where I can actually afford some of the windows shopping in reality.

TV Channel: Don't really care that much, but Pro Sieben and N24 are up there. N24 is a "news" channel that runs a lot of documentaries day in, day out.

Quoting SlamClick (Reply 22):
in heaven now

Whenever someone writes or says that, I always think of the old - but good - song in The Green Mile, which goes a little something like this:

I'm in heaven
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
As we're off together dancing cheek-to-cheek

I know I've missed out most of that song and might have those lyrics wrong.
