I'm Asking: Do You Have a Preferred Airline?

I'm Asking: Do You Have a Preferred Airline?

Comparison shopping is the name of the game when it comes to buying plane tickets, but I must say I'm delighted when JetBlue or Virgin America turn up on top of my search results. And if the flight is on the long side or a red-eye, I may be willing to pay a little extra for tickets on my favorite carriers. Do you prefer any particular airline to the others?

I wish I had a favorite airline. Even flying out of LAX doesn't afford that many options if you want to fly direct - so I usually go with the best possible option (good service, rates, flight times) and wish for the best. Recently I came across a customer service blog that highlights the bad and good and has entries about airlines and airline cards - I love information and ate it up at http://thebusinessofno.blogspot.com/

I'm a huge fan of AirFrance and British Airways -- free alcohol on both! They also seem very professional. The flight attendants are always multi-lingual, everything is clean, the seats are comfortable, etc. And I recently got a round trip flight from Paris to Barcelona for $104 on AirFrance, which I think is the cheapest flight I've ever taken.

JetBlue, Alaska or Virgin America for continental US travel. I like British Airways or United for overseas flights. :-)

I love Continental. I have also flown Jet Blue and AirTran a couple times and really liked them. To the UK I like British Airways. I like that there's free booze. I book the red eye, drink some wine, and pass out.

Continental almost always. except to London which i prefer Virgin. though Continental partners with Virgin for some flights so last time i flew there i got a Virgin flight and earned continental frequent flier miles... best of both worlds! i have a continental CC too so i earn miles that way. i've been able to get 2 practically free flights by using my frequent flier miles (one domestic and one to mexico) so i can't really complain!

I guess I'd pick Frontier... they're based in Denver, so there's always a flight somewhere and they have that little airplane tracker on the back of the seat too. Plus, they're nice and it's fairly comfortable. I've also really enjoyed my flights on Alaska - the pilots were really good. No bumpy landings, no mountain-feeling takeoffs, just really smooth and lovely. The pilot even told us what the weather was like, why there was a little turbulence... it felt good to be informed.

TWA was and will always be my preferred airline. St. Louis was their hub, so almost every flight we took until they went under was on TWA. Also, I find it very hard to avoid peanuts on airlines (not quite as much now as then because they have been cutting back on things like that), but TWA served AB pretzels (which also no longer exist) for as far back as I can remember.SwissAir is also pretty cool because they serve chocolate.

I don't really care that much. I travel frequently enough that anything under 15 hours doesn't qualify as a "really long flight" so I'll take anything that's cheap!I have had really good experiences on British Airways, KLM and Lufthansa, and I LOVE Qantas.
