I hate to be a gramar nazi, but its "Your Favorite Airline" or since your inquering about economy, it should be "your favorite economy airline"

To answer your question, from my experiences I think that Air France is the best for seating, and cost. And VS is the best for amenities, and IFE.

I have flown AF 18 times and they still have not failed me. I have flown VS 6 times not failed me yet.

On AF the seats have a foot rest in economy so it makes the ride more comfier.

In my opinion it used to be Iberia, great service and friendly FA's - now though no service and the FA's couldn't care less. I think Lufthansa is the best I have flown with recently, nice seats, good legroom and service on board. None of my flights were that late, if I remember correctly a few were early.

All of the above for amenities

AF for food and wine

CX for IFE

BA and AF for seating

CX and BA for service
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

Flew with them several times - my flights were on time and I often had to pay only € 38,- (return-ticket) to take a seat on those nice leather-seats. Crews were friendly and their fleet consists of A319 and A320 - my favourite aircraft  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

AlitaliaMD11: Before you criticize others, I suggest you check your own grammar and spelling...

My favourites are CX and NZ - always been happy on them, always good service, good seats, comfort, and so on. Would fly either any time!
