What was your favorite flight and why?

Mine was on UA's 777 from SFO-LHR in United First. The food, lodging, and people were wonderful! (My first time to LHR, too!)

I have three. The top two are EWR-LGW onboard Virgin Atlantic's sole 747-100 G-VMIA "Spirit of Sir Freddie". The other top flight is LGW-EWR onboard Virgin Atlantic's 747-200 G-VOYG "Shady Lady". The last one was onboard an America West 757-200 PHX-EWR.

My Favorite Flight was on a Cathay Pacific B747-200 travelling from MEL-HKG. l had the three seats at the window to myself, and the 4 seats in the middle for a lie down whenever l wished. Also l was given a large bottle of gin, and a dozen cans of tonic water to make the trip even more enjoyable....

See yah..

Mine was an Air France 707 from Orly to JFK in 1967. The plane was so bright and inviting inside, I had three seats all to myself, and the food was wonderful.

Mine was from LHR to LAX and back. We were flying a BA 747-200 and we were in the top of the plane which do not seat that many people so it felt like a lot less crowded flight and you get extra leg room. And you get a bin to put your hand lugage in will I made a bed there and went to sleep and had a great sleep. The flight back was as good.
I alos liked the flight from London Heathrow to Schipol. That was a great vacation!!! The flight was nice and short and the first time I remember not being ona 747. We were in a 757 which a good friend of mines flies so that was cool. But I must admit I was shocked that it was not a 747 as I had only flown on 747 at that time. Pretty funny. Huh?

Tough to say... I think either a SFO-HEL flight last year or the SFO-JFK-HEL flight that I had one week ago. Because on both saw some great scenery, and got to ride on the MD-11, and a ride doesn't get much better then that on the MD-11.

Los Angeles to Tokyo on Singapore Airlines, the service is unbeatable, i was in economy at the overwing exit with my freind, we had all the leg room there, i was at the window, he was at the aisle, no one in between us.

SFO-LAX, united 727, because the take off was so incredible, like a rocket

LAX-SFO, United DC-8-71, because i'd always wanted to fly on on of the classic jetliners

LAX-SLC-LAX Skyworld 707-300, again, because i've always wanted to fly on a classic jet, greatest of all, is the engines were still the JT3D lowbypass turbofans, the take off was great, it was the quickest flight out there i've ever made

Any Wardair Canada (now sadly gone). They had modern planes and the best service. I also was upgraded to Club Class on a British Airways Toronto to London flight- wonderful.
