Fauvorite Asian Airline

No doubt Singapore Airlines. They are terrific. The fleet it is just lovely.
I like Korean Air and All Nippon also.
Malaysian is a pretty good one too.
I just hate PAL and Thai. they are too "cold".

I have never flown Singapore Airlines, but I have a
feeling I would think they were tops in Asia if I did.
I only wish they'd invest in a better livery. It really
isn't very nice, in my opinion, although it does have
clean enough lines.

Since I have never flown with Singapore Airlines,
my choice is Cathay Pacific, followed by ANA
and if we can stretch this to Australasia in topic,

Worst Asian airlines, Korean Air, Japan Air Lines,
Air China, and Garuda.

I've only flown on a few Asian airlines, and here they are in order of preference.....

1) Mandarin Airlines
2) Emirates (suppose Middle East is classed as Asia)
3) China Airlines/Thai (hard to decide which one is better)
4) Silkair

I've never flown Korean, but what I've been hearing is that they are quite good for service and comfort even though their safety record has been a bit dubious in the past.

Well, for me the best asian airline is ANA. I have travelled a lot with Korean Air to Japan, before opening of the Siberia route. Service was always awful... . Do not know how service is nowadays.

I wish ANA would replace its old 747-200 soon on their Europe routes !

JAL is also a very good asian airline and since they have started to renew their Economy seats on some Jumbos, it will be great than before, travelling with JAL.

Well, I would like to fly with Harlequin Airlines or Skymark Airlines once...
