bmi regional (formerly British Midland Commuter)

Nice modern fleet of ERJ-135/145 & Fokker 70/100 aircraft.

Also flies 5 BAe 146-200s, some on behalf of Lufthansa & some on the new bmi MAN-BRU route (all in basic Team Lufthansa c/s.)

The Lufthansa contract is about to be terminated so the 146's will soon be sold.

My favorite is Continental Express (maybe I'm biased). The picture below is one of the coolest I've seen.

United Express/Delta Connection operated by SkyWest has the best snacks out there.

At any given time they have four of the following.
-Biscoff Cookies
-Energy Bars
-Almonds
-Cashews
-SkyWest/Delta Snack Mix
-Shortbread Cookies
-Chocolate Bars
-Imitation Oreo Cookies
-Lemon Cookies

and so on. After 80 flights, I kinda forgot what some of the other snacks were. The most common are Biscoffs, Energy Bars, Cashews/Almonds, and the SkyWest snack mix.

Im hungry just thinking about SkyWest.

I also enjoyed my one and only AirWisconsin flight. I really liked them. I also like to make fun of their name with such varients as AirWisky, AirWis, AirWuss, AirWacko, AirWiskco, and so on. Lalalala....

AirWisky's CRJs are very nice featuring the United interior. I had a wonderfull flight attendant on my flight.

Happy Flying!

Air Nostrum- I had the unexpected opportunity to fly them recently and surprisingly found them to be better than Crossair.

I have to be biased as well but I prefer ACA ( Atlantic Coast Airlines). I am a big fan of both the UAX and DL Conx sides.
I Don't know where I am anymore
