Build Your Favourite Flight Experience

Mon Feb 18, 2008 4:09 am

Build your favourite flight, using your own aviation experiences:
your favourite airports, lounges, cabins, seats, crew, meals, wines, IFE, inflight magazines etc... pick up the best and make your favourite aviation cocktail. So no dreams, only real things.

So far my favourite flight experience would look like this:

Route....................HKG-SIN
Lounge..................Cathay Pacific at BKK
A/C.......................B777ER
Cabin generally.......Emirates B777ER
Seat......................Finnair Long Haul C
Crew..................... British Airways Y & Finnair C
Meals....................Emirates Y
Wines................... Finnair Long Haul C
Coffee....................Finnair
IFE........................Emirates ICE
Inflight magazine.....Tiger Airways

Well I sort of experienced it on Thai Airways Royal First Class on there last remaining 747-300s. The only short fall was the short flight from Bangkok to Hong Kong.

I'd like to relive that experience but on a long flight.
Ideally BKK to San Francisco, Rio de Janiero, Havana, Montreal or Amsterdam.



Route...................BKK-HAV
Lounge..................Thai Airways at Bangkok - Suvarnabhumi International
A/C.......................747-300 or 747-300
Cabin generally.......747
Seat......................1A
Crew..................... Thai Airways or Virgin Atlantic
Meals....................Thai Airways or Olympic Airways
Wines................... Any kind
Coffee....................TACA
IFE........................Branniff or American Airlines (circa 1971)


For inflight entertainment, I'd prefer a lounge that involves interaction with other travellers. It makes the whole travelling experience a lot more interesting. I meet lots of interesting people travelling and especially between exotic cities such as Bangkok, Havana, Rio, San Francisco, Montreal or Amsterdam. Sticking an earbud in your ear and watching a little screen is not my idea of 'entertainment'. My ideal flight would also include studious and eccentric travellers. Not your typical sterile and self absorbed business traveller between Houston and Atlanta.

Same here.
Southwest is a great airline and I don't care what any A.net members say, they have always delivered great service. I'd choose Southwest over Delta or Continental anyday.
