Wed Dec 29, 2004 3:15 am

Every time you arrive to an airport, which airlines do you like to see?

An Avianca tail in a foreign airport. I makes me proud and nostalgic.

Iberia, reminds me of many happy holidays spent in Spain, and spotting at MAH on hot summer days.

Coming into EWR, seeing anything other than CO would make me happy, especially the foreign widebodies. I'm still waiting to see "Peter Max" up close from the terminal; so far I've only seen it taking off and landing from the parking garage.

I always look out for British Airways metal whenever I fly. I am usually able to find one at most of the airports that I fly into in the US. Just one of those things that makes the world feel a little bit smaller.

I have spotted BA planes at: EWR, SEA, SFO, LAX, PHX, TPA, IAH, DAL, BWI, JFK, BOS. Maybe some day I will make it to all of BA's US gateways.

Any international carrier or airline that operates widebodies since I am not able to see those here in MKE unless they are diversions from ORD.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
Avoid the Chicago ORDeal!! Fly MKE!

Any widebody, any international airline, which makes JFK a great airport from a spotters standpoint... Just yesterday at JFK, I saw an SA A343, a Turkish A343, an AY MD-11, and an IB A346 (is that the usual equipment on the MAD-JFK route?).

everytime I go into FLL, I like seeing US planes at the gates, usually about 3 or 4 at one time, it shows they are doing well there. Also, I like seeing Frontier's planes, its always a different animal on the tail.
At BWI, I like seeing CO, DL, BA, US, and AA and other widebodies. Basically anything but WN.

When arriving in MIA I like to see as many international airlines possible. I like to see them in groups too. Like a AF A320 and 747 next to each other. Or 5 Taca planes or 3 Aviancas. Also like to see alot of AA. When arriving in an Airport out of the USA I like to see AA planes and when getting my baggage I like to see other flights from MIA come in. Just like how I love when you arrive durring the mourning or evening rush in MIA and in the International bag claim they have a sign with all the arrivals in the mourning EZE,GIG,SCL. And late Afternoon LHR,MAD,CDG,FRA,Helsinki, Bogata everything. I love that.
When flying to domestic airports in the US I really dont care. Hopefully planes I dont see much in MIA.
I have seen three AF planes parked next to each other at the gate in MIA once. an 744 A340 and A320! I love it when everyone looks out the window to see all the other airlines at the airport.
