This is kind of useless since the criteria aren't stated. But...

US Domestic: JetBlue (runner-up: AA)
Intercontinental: Qantas (runner-up: BA)

If Southwest would just get over its phobia about assigned seating, it'd probably be my domestic runner-up. The "cattle call" is the only thing I really hate about WN (other than that new, god-awful livery.)

Best experience - Virgin

Makes me laugh - Ryanair (for getting into trouble, but still not caring)

Reliability - BA (when they're not on strike  Big grin ).

For their base, and friendly foreign crew: Emirates

For providing competition in Oz: Virgin Blue

For lowering their fares to reasonable levels in response: Qantas

For their crazy adverts: easyjet and ryanair

For starting the whole low-cost craze: SOUTHWEST

For their amusingly "couldn't care less" attitude: Alitalia

For "you should feel privilaged to be flying us" attitude: Swiss

For boring, robotic service: Lufthansa

Hey, it was based on two flights, and my post was also a bit of tongue in cheek - I'm sure LH do provide great service; it's just that on my flights, the service was pretty heartless...

Unfortunately, I wish Germany would have a high quality airline like so many other countries in the world.

I'm partial to B6 JETBLUE!

For int'l flying, I like BA. But there are a lot of int'l I admit I have never flown (but would if they gave me free tix!).
My two Virgin experiences have also been very positive. Better IFE than BA (overall), but the seats were not as comfy or something.
I prefered BA's professional appearance to Virgin's overly lively and fun look.
None shall pass!!!!
