International - CX without a doubt. In three instances, I've had nothing but the *best* possible experience with them.

Domestic - jetBlue takes my crown. You sacrifice a bit with the legroom, but you're entertained, you have a Southwest-quality cabin crew and ground staff, and you're paying fares that downright cheat the majors  Big grin

Emirates Airlines .


This is the best airline which provides excellent services . Even through I do not really like the 3-4-3 configuration of the 777 , they make up for the great service and entertainment system provided by the airline .


Be good to yourself , Fly Emirates .

Airliners is the wings of my life.

I have to agree with Paddy. For a regional, Horizon has won quite a few friends.

I've flown both their SEA-PDX shuttle and their SEA-GEG shuttle which both have the Q-400 aircraft with two flight attendants. Getting chips and salsa plus microbrew served to 72 pax on such short flights is a chore, but these people do it with a smile. This aircraft works well with this particular demographic. Horizon, though, needs escalators in Seattle--the stairs to the tarmac are a killer when you've got luggage.

I've also flown Alaska Airline's 737-900 aircraft IAD-SEA. Nice! And they've got some *very* interesting pax flying out of Dulles.

Continental has the best food in first class IMHO. On a recent BWI>EWR>SNA upgrade, we feasted on perfectly cooked and seasoned breast of duck. And before landing, the flight attendant thanked *us* for our courtesy and shook each of our hands.

But my all time kudos for going beyond the call of duty goes to a DTW-DCA Northwest Airlines crew I flew with earlier this year. A passenger with an ulcer became ill in flight, and the plane had to be diverted to Columbus, Ohio. The flight attendants cared for the passenger until she was removed on a stretcher by paramedics, and then they resumed service cheerfully as if nothing had happened. When other passengers tried to thank and compliment them for their emergency nursing duties, they acted like it happened every day.
 Big thumbs up

my fav domestic in australia is virgin blue. nice flight attendants, cheap air fares, nice clean new aircraft and a different kind of in flight entertainment. Sure you miss out on the so called free meal which tastes like dog food anyway but u truly get what you pay for and you get it effeciently.
(besides any airline with a part owner who can take the ass out of geoff dixon like sir richard did is in my top 3 anyway)
