Since I've only been on EasyJet and BA, I'd have to say BA. I'd like to try VS at least once in my life though.

BA all the way!

Flybe is my favourite LCC and Monarch my favourite charter (although they now also have Monarch Scheduled).

Least favourite is VS. Bad experiences on two of their flights.

Same as you Amy, Eastern Airways. I may work for BACX, but it doesn't mean I like them!

I like Richard Lake's attitude to expansion, his clean aircraft and his service. And my wife works for Manx Regional, which is Easterns handling arm here on the Isle of Man. Oh, and I used to look after all his J-41's when they were BA's

As I'm a former employee of Eastern Airways it's nice to hear you say that. I only left them due to personal circumstances, nothing to do with work, and it was a wrench. I had a great time working for them.

After Eastern Airways, my unbiased choice of the one which has surprised/impressed me most has to be Flybe with their Q400.

Despite letting me down on a few occasions, mine's Air Southwest, they make you feel more wanted as a passenger and have very friendly staff who are always happy to help. Following them it would be Palmair, BA and then Monarch Scheduled, I have not flown Virgin or BMI yet so I can't vouch for them.

Just to back up my earlier assertion re. Eastern Airways, a bit of unashamed self glossing here - my 12th pic on A.net. By 'eck it's hard work getting stuff past the screeners!! Thank heaven young Mr Lake keeps his aircraft in tip top condition!
