Best Commercial Airlines!

Thu Feb 05, 2004 11:23 pm

I can pretty much feel the attitude of most people towards certain airlines in the world, but I'd like to know which ones most of you think are the best?

My votes go to DL(God help them!), WN, and BA!  Big thumbs up

What do you think?

Cheers!

I would have to agree with BA as well. They really are a world-class airline! AF pisses me off sometimes, but they are good as well.

Cheers!  Big thumbs up

I think EK is over-rated, yet it wins lots of awards.

LX was really better than OS and BA in the past, but what about the new european economy service? And the fleet renewal?

Best Airline

Fri Feb 06, 2004 4:07 pm

Qantas is a great airline, friendly staff, meals are fine and you'd almost never have a problem with them at all. I haven't. Thai Airlines, in my opinion, have the friendliest staff.

Qantas would be the best airline though!

Despite some of the lovely names given to Delta, (Doesn't Ever Leave The Airport or Don't Expect Luggage To Arrive), I've had pretty good luck with them. NWA has been pretty good, too.

My favorite airline is Singapore Airlines for an outstanding First Class (tried on A340 and B747-400) and for a very stylish Raffles Class (or business class as they call it).
Confort for me means fully reclinable/flat bed seat, meal presentation and meal service, a very friendly and caring cabin crew.
I'm not that much into watching movies or playing games as I read while flying.
SQ is really on top of the list.

Then, after SQ, my other favorite airlines, and those I also fly regularly, are:
KLM upper deck on B747-400
NW excellent new business class lie-flat seat onboard the A330 and excellent upgraded 4-course menu (very good wines).

Other excellent experiences in C-class:
Qatar Airways
Malaysia Airlines
Emirates
Cathay Pacific

I very negative note: Thai
I recently flew to Bangkok from Rome and it was non-stop on that terrible and very old B747-300 where the c-class cabin was showing the very same interior as 10 years back: no tv, reduced pitch, no foot rest.

Trent500 - did you know that if a BA Trolly Dolly says "cherio" (rather than "goodbye" etc) when you get off the plane it is a signal to the rest of the crew that they think, er, you're a bit of alright?!

(Well that's what I've been told)
