LAN, because of the good looking flight attendants, touch screen personal t.v's, quiet A340 aircraft and cabin ambience makes me relaxed.

I've only flown with two of them, TAM and Varig... which makes the decision extremely easy.

TAM.

Maybe at this time they can't compare with LAN but they have tradition in Southamerica, i love the fleet (specially M-80s and 757s) and are now getting better to be competitive (they have the spirit) and for me the best reason is that they are Colombian (well at least is what i want to believe sorry) Big grin

Just put me on any modern airliner and i will be happy, give me more star alliance miles and i will be a lot more happy.
