Favourite Airline?

Wed Apr 27, 2005 6:19 am

Hi i'm new here, just loved the site....
Anyway, as a frequent flier, similar to some of you guys, i've begun to notice more and more positive and negative points about airlines.
I still think my favourite has to be Singapore Airlines, especially to SIN, i just think their service is great. What are your favourite airlines?
Thanks

Don't really have a single favorite, but the best I've flown are Air Southwest, BA, KLM and Lufthansa, whilst the worst are Ryanair (well what did I expect), Iberia and Air France. For a 'holiday' airline Palmair were also very good.

Welcome to A.net.
I'm new here too.
My Favorite airline of all time is Horizon Air.
I don't much appreciate being made fun of because of that,
but it's been happening to me for years.
So when I'm around people that would for cirtain have a laugh
out of that, I say Virgin Atlantic.  Wink

Now that I think about it I don't really absolutely dispise any airline. I'm not a big fan of FL because it's pretty uncomfortable- but that's about it. They have a pretty friendly crew and stuff. I'm not a big fan of Delta and Northwest due to their large amounts of old and dirty aircraft. CO seems to have the best fleet. I absolutely LOVE their 739s!

US Airways. I know the horror stories, but they have been better to me than any other airline I have ever flown. NW is second.

Good question...  Smile I want a lifelong career with American, but when I enrolled here last year, I wanted a simple name I knew I would like for a long time. I'm not about to pay again to have a different SN. Thought about doing "AA777-223" or something...but if there is a newer plane out there I like more, I didn't want an outdated name. LOL

I don't really have a favourite as such any more. Nowadays, to me, it's more about favourite flights, regardless of the airline. That is, a flight where the service was good (in my experience, they're all much of a muchness these days, although whether I have to pay for drinks and snacks or not makes a huge difference) and I have enjoyed the overall experience thanks to a friendly crew, comfortable aircraft etc. I've found that you can have a great flight with a particular airline one day, then fly them again a week later and they're awful.

I used to say that Virgin Atlantic were my favourite, but after a ropy experience with them recently, I'm no longer so sure. On the other hand, I may just have caught them on an off day. I've had a couple of great flights with Air Canada, but from what I've read on here, others haven't been quite so lucky. I enjoyed my flights on Icelandair, others, it seems, didn't. I've encountered lovely, friendly F/A's on Aer Lingus, although others have disagreed. My list goes on...

Anyway, if you held a gun to my head and made me pick a favourite, I'd have to say British Airways. I guess you always know what you're going to get with them (right down to the pizza on European flights!).

Saudi Arabian

They have got enough petrol

They have got golden service between Europe and Saudi Arabia and nice service between Saudi Arabia and India

The crew has always got time for a chat or for a additional favour

Most of the time they are departing before scheduled time

They are very cheap and I can book my favourite seat even in guest class (economy)

They have got clean planes and once in the plane you can use your cellphone till just short before reaching the runway

They have "un je ne sais quoi en plus"

And in the back of their 777-200 there is a great chance (except during religious festival times) that you will be lying an relaxed like a prince of the desert, on a full five seats range.

The meals are delicious and the choice is great

It's a great Arline, with great crews, I have to tell it

Smile first, and your success will be 100% guaranteed




Cheers. Kilavoud.

In an earlier post, I commented on how I like NWA. However, Sun Country Airlines, also based at MSP, reminds of The Little Engine That Could (Redux). Take a few Braniff employees. Buy some old airplanes. Start an airline. Fail. Regroup. Try again. Make profit.
