I'm obsessed with British Airways, and just recently I started to like them. I flew on them about 10 years ago, but don't remember much. 3 years ago I flew DEN-LGW and I instantly fell in love with them.

THE BEST SERVICE I EVER HAD! They treated me like a King.

I also really like United as I fly them quite often and have had pleasant experiences with them.

I'm also starting to like Frontier quite a bit because they are doing so great, and have great service according to my dad who flew DEN-LGA a while ago.

However, the airlines I grew up with are KLM and Swissair as I used to fly these all the time when I was younger. Unfortunately, I haven't flown them in quite a long time so I miss them.

I absolutely love KLM's livery, you guys might say its just blue, but to me its more than that.

Regards.

i have a strange obsession with wanting to fly on an LH A340 - maybe it's because it's the first A340 i ever saw in flight (at EWR).

also like KLM's livery!

i like aer lingus, too

I also love Lufthansa's livery, ESPECIALLY on the A340.

I think Delta's livery is great too. I like the 1999 livery, not the 2000 livery.

In my opinion the 777 looks best in Delta's 1999 livery.

Kind Regards.

For me, I am obsessed with 3 airlines.
First, my user name explains my favorite- DeltaRules.

Delta has given me nice service over the years, with nice flight crews, comfortable seats, and good food. I also like all of their paint schemes, and their fleet. I also have probably a truckful of DL stuff (timetables, safety cards, magazines, shirts, tie tacks, pin-on wings.)

Next, USAirways is the only airline I knew when I was starting school, and really getting into travelling. I've grown to love USAir over the years, and although we've flown Delta "excessively" over the past couple years, I was excited to fly on US to go to Paris in Nov. (we would get "chewed out" by a flight attendant going CMH-PHL before that flight.

The third airline is Northwest. I'm not sure why I'm obsessed with them, but I have been happy with their service 2 out of the 3 trips to Europe I've taken, (the other was on US.) DTW-AMS, LGW-DTW, DTW-FCO, FCO-DTW. 4 movies coming back from Rome didn't hurt either! My first flight on a 747 (which was literally elusive until 1999 was to AMS on NW, and I've flown NW enough to get used to them.
That's what I think.

And by the way, I also like KLM's livery. The 2 shades of blue blend well with the white!!  Big grin

Yeah I am obsessed with Delta too. They are the airline that I fly with the most, and I am a SkyMiles member. I like the fleet, the hubs, Delta Express, Comair, Delta Connection, the routings, the newest livery, the timetables, the inflight service, the movies, the alliances, and the destinations. All of that, in my opinion adds up to eqaul one great airline.

USAirways is another that I am fond of. I guess I am somewhat intrigued by their prospects of becoming a nearly all Airbus fleet. With their concentration mainly on the East coast they fly alot of shorter routes with mainline aircraft and I wonder how they can do that. They also have alot of flights between non hub cities as well, and that also intrigues me.

Others that I have alot of interest in are Air France, Sabena (only God knows why because I am still trying to figure this one out), Virgin Atlantic, Qantas. I also seem to be having a recent interest in AirTran and Midway now that I'm learnig more about these airlines.

It's so strange, I've never flown on a Lufthansa, but I just keep liking them. I've flown a KLM 747-300 from YYZ in march 2001 and I loved it.

WestJet!!!
They are just so cool, The only airline in canada making money, and thats cause of 2 reasons, Down to Earth Staff, and overall kindness, There computers crashed for 8 hours and 30 flights were cancelled, so they give every one the flight for free, plus another free flight, which is just a example of how kind they are!.

Even Airport Authoritys love them, because of there on time performance, which i belive is one of the highest in north america, if not, which is amazing, concidering they are only 6 years old.

GO WESTJET!!!

This once venerable airline is now a footnote in aviation history but, it is alive and well in my heart and will be forever! Remember the "Golden Falcoln," "The Wings Of Man," the original airline of Walt Disney World? None other than that great late airline Eastern! This airline along with Pan Am put Miami International on the map! Eastern had the most diverse and interesting fleet of aircraft in the sky! EAL kept the Connie and the Electra high and flying alaong with Martin 404's while they introduced the L1011! But wait, there's more! They had a couple of 747's early in the 70's and lest we not forget DC-10's and A-300's. I believe that Eastern was one of the few airlines that flew each of the pioneering first generation of wide bodied aircraft that were home grown (not from aquired birds in mergers such as National/Pan Am) I always thought their liveries were classics, especially the "Fly Eastern" Golden Falcolns that adorned their birds up until 1964. Their "hockey stick logo" grew on you and was simple but always modern and classic looking up to the end. It's a shame, that this great powerhouse crashed from turbulent economic times and the corporate raiding/raping craze during the "Reagan 80's." Had Eastern been able to hang in there a few more years I feel this airline would be one of the great powerhouses today. For sure, they would have 777's, 340's and 717's as the "Wings of Man" in the 21st. century. As a kid, Eastern was by far the most glamourous airline that served BWI (Baltimore Washington International) then known as "Friendship Airport." No offense to you US Airways afficianados: but USAirways to Miami does not have that same feel and panache that Eastern had! And, Eastern never flew the tubby little 737! Again, no offense to 737 fans but I feel that the 727 and 757 are much more clean asthetically looking planes than the 737, especially the 3 and 4 hundred series with the ugly flattened at the bottom engines. National and Pan Am are flying again to some extent, maybe Eastern will return!

I love Emirates, have flown with them many a times and have even worked for them!

Emirates is a very ambitious airline and is most definately the airline of the future!

No 1. Emirates.
Flew them from Melbourne to Dubai then onto Nice. Back from Paris to Dubai then Melbourne. Service was excellent. Flew a 773, 772, A330-200 while on Emirates. First time ever on those type of planes.
Next, Qantas. Good service as well.

I'm so obsessed with Canadian Airlines. It's the first airline I flew, but when they were integrated with Air Canada. I love both of their paint schemes, the old one and especially the goose. They had a good fleet, I really liked their DC10's and 732's. I flew with them on a 732 but the aircraft was already painted into Air Canada/Canadian (at least it wasn't FULL AC colours)and the interior was still Canadian also. I don't know why i'm obsessed with them but I hope I get to fly on them again while they're still around.

Canadi>n Airlines for SURE! I saw one of their Fokker 28's at the airport yesterday in the original livery and almost had a mental brakedown because I didn't bring my camera to capture this fine aircraft in the beautiful colours which are soon to be gone. It's unlikely I will see one until Dec 15 when the proposed F28 serivce begins. But they may all be repainted by then.............. NOOOOOOOOOO!

Hi there,
I won't like to call it an obsession or anything
but I favor airline names that don't have to mention
the words Air, Airways or Airlines.
Lufthansa, Qantas, Olympic, Iberia and Hapag Lloyd
for example.
Kindest regards.

Well I was kinda obsessed with Impulse while they were here but since they were absorbed into the QantasLink, I could hardly care less.
I have for a long time had this thing with Kuwait Airways though. I really don't know why but I really like to fly with them and look forward to each trip. Even when planing a trip I see if I can fit in a sector with Kuwait.
