I love the new Korean Air commercials. So much more chic, glamorous, exciting, and creative than anything else I've seen!

(global version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n4k_v3zNJu0

(Americas/Europe version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Zn_WE-VJgg&feature=related

(Asian version) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEYngxOMsmg&feature=related

Basically all the same, except Americans/Europeans get to see exotic Pacific rim cities, while Asians get to see the quintessential hubs of Western culture! Everyone gets to see the amazing ICN airport and the beautiful KE girls  .

3. Emirates ("Keep Discovering")
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vQLV...aPkW0

That's one is my joint second favourite along with the post 9/11 AA commericials:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzDOa6HEGYI&feature=related

Fourth would have to go to anything by BA which includes the Flower Duet. Never has a piece of music being so identifiable with one brand, so why did they drop it??? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NAcBsSzjiUo

Finally an honourable mention to this one. RIP

Edit: Decided I should add the current QF A380 advert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFsyWSATJ7A

Also, that AY panda advert is so beautiful... I love it!!! Thanks for sharing

Awesome!! I think a lot of people will agree that this is the best AA commercial out there and probably one of the best airline commercials ever made for US carriers... AA always has a way of reaching their audience with the message they want. Good Job AA!!

I got goosebumps... that's gotta be one of my top 5 forsure!! purely amazing in design and layout.

But one of my favorite for Emirites (just because I'm a dog lover) is this one:

Another airline that always makes some of the funniest spoofs is Westjet (LOL moments forsure):

Another favorite of mine is Qantas's commercials for the A380. Very relaxing to watch...

My all time favourite advertisment would have to be the early 1980s British Caledonian one.

I find it quite amusing.

Same opinion here! But they haven't dropped it. A lot of times it is the ambient music on their aircraft, and still goes into their commercials.

Here are some of my favorites

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KMUQdcgBf4&feature=related - BA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbKJTx1XeVw&feature=related - BA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OkJCCiH1CjE - BA

The new Delta commercials are fantastic but my all time favs are AA's "Something Special in the Air" and United's late 1980s "Rededicated" campaign.

The new AA ones are pretty bland. Not a fan.

Old Midwest Express commercials for sure. Definately awesome, feel good, classic commercials. Midwest Express was a great airline.

That's a very nice commercial. If I'm not mistaken, it portrays a few other messages too which are perhaps even more relevant today.

My other favourites are the traditional BA commercials with their famous theme music from Léo Delibes along with the stylised versions of that theme back in the days of the Landor & Associates colour scheme.

The QF 'shadow' commercial is another classic, with the little plane followed by the enormous shadow hinting at the size of things to come.
