Must we pick just one?

NW--because I like my paychecks.

AS--they treated me like gold as a non rev.

DL--found some great net fares to CO / KMCO), USA - Florida">MCO and FLL made silver elite  Smile

CO--they give NW employees great passes.

Definitly Continental, but as a non rev NW has always been good to me. Seems like I get "up front" more often than CO.

FL and CO. Fl because of its consistently low fares and cheap upgrades. CO because of its excellent service.

Cheers!

Horizon - They have the nicest employees I've ever met in the airlines.

Frontier - I love the animal tails. Besides, the flight schedules changed by five minutes and they called me to make sure that this wouldn't cause a problem and offered to book me on a different flight and airline if need be. The employees there have always made me feel that I was their most important passenger and that my happiness was their purpose in life.

I guess it would have to be CO.......No other..... I have all my miles with them. I can go almost anywhere on them, usually non-stop...That is a great selling point for any airline.
I see how they are making it tougher to become elite this year. But I am kinda glad. Those of us who make elite regularly will have the upgrades more often than not, (like it used to be)

SAS, hottest and most professional F/A's in the business!

To be a little more unbiased, I like KLM and NWA also.

Also, any LCC is good. You feel like cattle, but you're able to spend more money at the place where you're going!

IBERIA - Although I know it´s not among the best airlines (service-wise) it is my country´s flag carrier...and I like IB a lot!!

DELTA AIR LINES - They have provided me with the best experience in the air. Excellent service.

KLM - Good memories from the past. Their service quality is actually not as good as it used to be but they remain a good and reliable airline.
