Which Airline Do You Prefer When Traveling Abroad?

Fri Jun 03, 2005 9:03 am

When you travel to a country outside of yours, do you take the national airline of your country or the airline of the country that you are traveling to?
I remember traveling to YEG a few times out of the year, I only took AC 1 time and that was the first time I went to Canada. After that I stuck to NW connecting in MSP all the way, mainly because the travel time felt shorter.
But what about you? What is your choice when traveling abroad? National airline or the airline of the country you are heading to?  airplane

Most of the time it is Air New Zealand or Singapore Airlines.

Most of my flights are either KL or AC/LH. I'm very happy with all three. I have also tried BA which I really enjoyed, but I don't like their FFP. I have also tried a few US airlines (DL,UA,NW), and was very displeased with them so I try to avoid them now.

I fly with whatever gives me FF miles.

That would be Skyteam.

Emirates or Japan Airlines if possible. Any skyward member will do for me as I am a member of the skywards frequent flyer programme.

Unlike other Singapore Airlines lover, I rather fly EK or JL.

I always take British Airways when I can. It makes sense as by doing so you can get Status and then be able to get into the lounge and have a vague chance of getting an upgrade as well.

Most of the time, I fly AF, because I have the most direct flights, and very often the most interesting schedules. And I have good service.
10years ago, when AF service was not as good, I used to share my flts between SR, BA and EK.

From SYD I try to take QF where possible (lounge access, quicker check-in, ffp's etc). And is there anything better than getting a copy of the SMH handed to you on the plane after being in London? Its a welcome home.
