I am surprised nobody has mentioned:
For Airlines: Emirates - Singapore - Cathay - UA
(have had a long storied past) - but BA
has been mentioned (great story behind them!)
I am surprised by how many AMS
there are - great great airport possibly popular by the enjoyable 'Spotting' atmosphere. Dutch are also great people.
Aircraft: NO A380?? Or maybe not your favorite yet?
Years: Seem like many like the Golden Age late 50s to 80s. I am happy some enjoy the current years.
We produce aviation DVD's - I very much enjoy your responses as I have a feel for what people like - but it is not concrete and hearing others respond concerning subject matter is gratifying.
Plse continue the responses - I'm all ears!
