My favourite domestic US airline is Trans World Airlines. For the most part my flights with them have been great, and even when there were problems, they were handled well and overall I don't have any complaints. Their airfares are good, and the benefits of my elite card with them are wonderful. They have a good domestic first (Trans World First) and coach product. Their airplanes are newer and comfortable, and staff have always been friendly and helpful.

My favorite domestic airline must be TWA Ive flown them just once but they were incredible . Ive flown with American so many times I dont remember and there not as good as TWA . Delta comes close to TWA but TWA beats it.

Hmm...Yes, I think I've seen a similar thread once or twice before...
I'm pretty pleased with American, because the new Recarro seats are pretty attractive and comfortable, and the legroom is a big plus. Also, the staff have been very friendly, and I have no major complaints in terms of other areas of service.
However, I should also say that I don't really hold grudges against other airlines. I've had good luck with United, Alaska, Southwest, and even America West. Across the Pond, Aer Lingus has been superb. I've been fortunate enough to have very few "negative" flying experiences. I've never had a flight cancelled, never been denied boarding, never had my luggage damaged or misplaced. The longest delay flight delay I've had was a little over two hours during Thanksgiving '99.
I was once on a flight that had a Northwest flight that had an engine failure and returned to Minneapolis. But, I was only 6 months old at the time, and can't remember a thing now. Plus, my parents tell me that they put us up in the Sofitel overnight, which isn't exactly slumming it.
Back in the mid-90s, I enjoyed flying on Reno Air, as they used to invite their UMs up in First Class so they could "keep an eye on us." Reno actually used to serve a little sandwich basket on the mealtime LAX-SJC flights in First, so I got a nicer seat and got fed too, at no extra cost.
Also, my grandmother and I got upgraded to Business on UA between JFK-LAX for no apparent reason. Our Y class seats were originally middle seats three rows apart. I don't think coach was full, so I'm not sure why it happend, but it certainly was a pleasant surprise!

Well I have flown only AA, UA, US, and UA made a very favorable impression on me on PHL-DEN-COS, and JAC-DEN-PHL, the route I flew them on most recently (last time was 1993, it was PHL-DEN-SFO-SAN and back.
US is absolutely horrible, I cant stand them, and AA was all right so

I flew four legs on TWA back in August and got off each one of them wishing I had booked on United. It was horrific. Never flying them again...
My favorite? Hmm... thats a hard one. I really like both Alaska and Delta, but United is right up there too.

I'd have to go with United. I fly them on most flight I fly and since my dad has his Premier Executive card they treat us like royalty (usually). I also like Continental a lot. I've flown 737s,757s and ERJs with CO and they were all very pleasant. Oh, and by the way Lot767-300, you won't be able to experience Legend any more. They shut down about a month ago, unfortunatly. I'd like to fly Midwest Express some day, I've heard really good things about them.
