British Airways, and, even though their pilots were idiots in the Taiwan accident, Singapore.

"even though their pilots were idiots in the Taiwan accident"

I beg your pardon, but how can you label them as idiots. The whether, while very bad, was still within the limits, so they had no reason to not depart. They were fooled by the fact that the inactive runway had some of its lighting illuminated, and because of the heavy rain, they could see this lighting, but not that of the correct runway. An aircraft crash is never of a single cause, and of every major crash of recent time, there is not one where the pilot could be labelled as 'idiot'. Sure, pilots make mistakes, but then we all do. That doesn't make us idiots. It makes us human.

Now Surf, if you feel you can do a better job than SIA's highly trained pilots in guiding an aircraft onto a runway from a vantage point three storeys in the air, all the while in atrocious conditions, and with runway lights that should not be illuminated, illuminated, then you can criticise them. But until you can prove you can, don't make 'idiotic' comments.

Southwest isn't going anywhere...but its demise would have serious consequences on the travelling public in the United States.

Southwest is basically the most significant downward pressure on fares any and everywhere they fly...and they fly a lot of places these days.

Blink182...why the heck would you want to see them go away? They have the lowest customer complaint ratio, are invariably among the on time leaders, and don't kill passengers by trying to land in nasty weather in Little Rock like your pals in the silver aircraft.(knock on wood).

They also make their stockholders (ta-da) a lot of money while saving the flying public a lot of money. What, may I ask, is so bad about THAT ?????

Well, Air France obviously !
Who would pay me ????

I believe we shouldn't lose airlines like BA, SQ, the trend setters.

Happy Flying,

Air New Zealand - its world renowned cabin service would be missed.

TWA and British Airways because of their long histories and impact that they have had on aviation over the years.

Any of the original airlines, like KLM, Qantas or Sabena.
I remember when the DC-3 was new!

Virgin Atlantic- Best service I've ever had & best livery in the air!

British Midland- The airline that flys over my house the most (my garden's great for spotting!)

British Airways- Although I don't really like them at all, I think it's one of those airlines that alot of us love to hate & although I hope they decrease in size (giving VS & BD a chance), I hope they never go.

Of course Lufthansa! If they would have to stop, something very big would miss here in Germany.

Imagine of FRA without LH! It would be same as LHR without BA or SYD without QF or CDG without AF.

...a nightmare.

Right on TxAg! Southwest rules!

If you read blink182's profile, he has yet to pay for an airline ticket on his own - judging by his age. He'll wise up when he has to pay his own way in the future.

I would definitely miss Alaska, and also Horizon to some extent. They're such unique companies...it wouldn't seem right if they were collapsed or were bought out. Also, I would miss TWA, just for the sake of their legacy to aviation. And, America West used to be a great airline, and I hope things turn around for them. I would miss Aer Lingus too...

United, of course, but I would also be very sad to see Continental go. They are doing everything right, whether it be from seating products to aircraft, to destinations. They blanket the world with their routes...and not just via codeshares.

Im Canadian...More like Canadi< n..
you got it..Canadian Airlines..They already dissapeared as Air Canada took it over..  
Where I come From: Calgary, the airline is based at Calgary, with it gone.. The stiff competition against other airlines is easier and the Flying geese will never fly again..Instead it will be a leaf!! A leaf gently falling off a tree caught by an updraft..
Canadian has used up its 9th and its final life..
So Long Mighty Goose..I'll and other Canadian fans will never forget you..
