Is Your Favorite Airline The One You Fly Most?

Mon Jun 11, 2012 5:52 pm

I fly UA religiously. But if I weren't beholden by Mileage Plus, and if I were to pay for F/C rather than using miles, I would most likely fly Virgin America and Jet Blue domestic, and Lufthansa and El Al international.

I fly UA the most as of this year but I think DL is my true preference.

No. I'd rather fly OS, but frequently the price difference between OS and LH is too big, so LH is the better choice.

I flew CO without fail, now my answer is UA.....at least until I get rid of my FF miles then we shall see.

I fly HA religiously and have logged almost 225 flights on their Boeing 717's. My other favorite was UA and I flew them religiously too and it was a deep favorite too....until a couple of years ago when I was "forced" to take AA on a business trip and, well changed my "religion" LOL.

No. The airline I fly most is Ryanair, and it is far from my favourite airline. But it is not so bad I won't fly it - my personal blacklist consists of the EU Banned Airlines list only

I use KLM Cityhopper and AF Regional a lot, only for the reason that I have no other options on 2 segments I shuttle on, AMS-STR and AMS-SXB, there is no warm feeling for Skyteam although I accumulated half a million miles and have Platinum status from the old KLM Royalwing on....
As an European carrier, I prefer LH over AF/KL and in the Middle-East Emirates and Qatar Airways.

Of my total 230 flights, 130 are on FI. So yes.

501 flights with SK. Hate them, but it's been the best choice when living in GOT, and now CPH.

Love KLM, especially long-haul business class. Not the best seats, but food and service!

AB is my favourite/preferred carrier and I fly them most of the time (short haul).
Longhaul is a different matter and there are usually "better" choices around ...

My fave airline is by far Virgin Australia - initially started with their previous incarnations of Virgin Blue and Pacific Blue, but they have top service, my favourite aircraft type (737), and I'm not particularly trusting of QF. When it comes to international flights, it depends where I'm going - if I fly to New Zealand its typically on NZ on the BNE-AKL sector, then DJ back to BNE out of any other port. But almost anywhere other than New Zealand it would have to be SQ by far - flew them to LHR last year and with their top quality service, newer aircraft, cheaper airfares, preferred arrival times to where I'm interesred in flying, and I can earn my flyer points in my DJ flyer account is a bonus.

My favourite airline is EK hands down

However, given that about 85% of my flying is Australian domestic I rarely fly them even when heading to Europe


I guess my "preferred" carrier is QF (and by default any other OW carrier) - I have never had a problem with any of them. QF long-haul is (on a good day) as good as EK, CX are also very good, and there is nothing particularly wrong with BA or AA. But I just don't get the same 'warm and fuzzy glow' on QF or CX that I do on EK

Individual Flights, No.

Flight Hours, yes.

I've had most flights on SK, but most flight hours on SQ.

Yes, United. Even before I got my flight benefits with them I would always try to book with UA, even if the fare was slightly higher. They're on-time, professional and the audio IFE suits my needs.

Living in NZ and most trips being Trans-Tasman or domestic, Air NZ is my most flown airline but is far from my favorite

My favorite airline is definitely SQ, but with SIN being so far away I don't get the privelege too often, and even though I'm somewhere in Asia pretty much every year, SQ prices are often too prohibitive compared to the other carriers

My favourite airline is probably AC, and living in Australia, makes it difficult :-P Second would be QF, and unfortunately, as a student, can't often justify flying QF when JQ/DJ/CZ are cheaper.

Singapore Airlines is my favorite and I have flown them on 16 out of 22 flights so far in 2012 with 6 booked for the next 2 months.

About 40% of my flight segments are on UA, but my preferred carriers are AC and QR, regrettably only 15% of my total segments.

CX are my favourite airline and I have flown them 12 times - one fewer than I've flown on QF. My favourite airline is therefore second on my list of most flown airlines.

My favorite airline I've ever flown on is SQ, but they don't fly US Domestic! Which is 90% of my trips, i fly probably 90% of those on WN, i like them but given a choice i would choose B6 as my favorite US airline. (VX i am trying you guys in a couple of months so that might change my mind   )

Not really.

I fly DL most, and they're my favorite US legacy.

That said, I'd rather fly any European airline transatlantically ahead of DL... KL is my favorite airline, I suppose, and they're 3rd or 4th on my most-flown list.

When I fly I try for a JetBlue flight...as they are my preferred carrier. Though if Southwest has a good fare then I'm ok with them as well. Bags fly free and a decent frequent flyer program goes a long way. Sadly, there is an airline or two I will avoid like the plague!

Most of my miles are on UA but I much prefer to fly on SQ.

My favourite airline is Berjaya (J8). If I am on one of their DHC Dash 7s it means I am on the short hop up to Tioman to relax for a couple of days.
