Default Anyone have an airline they like?

My last few encounters with airline tavel have been anything but wonderful. The last year I've flown Air Atalia, Air Canada, American, United, and Canadian. The entire year I didn't have a uneventful travel day. Seems the only flights that ever left on time were the ones I was supposed to be connecting to.
Anyone have a favorite airline that occassionally flies on time?

Regards,
Kuki

Varig Airlines was the best flight I ever had to Manaus Brazil really had a great flight. But the worst was the return trip using LAB (Loyd Air Bolivia) worst flight ever.
this was a few years ago so I'm sure things have changed.

Kuki, Where are you traveling from and going to? If you are traveling in the US, particularly East Coast to Florida, I've had good luck with US Airways. They have lots of flights and different options for reroute if weather or mechanical problems crop up. It's still not a bad idea to go a day early, particularly if you're traveling a long distance.

Our favorites are American and, unfortunately now, TWA...which I guess means it's just American since they're merging. The aircrafts are comfortable, staff is knowledgeable, professional and courteous, and the food is usually good. My flights have generally been on time.

The one airline I absolutely, positively will NOT fly is USAir. (US Scare?) Without going into a lot of detail, I've never had a good experience with them. (Out of curiosity, are they EVER on time? Any airline can be delayed, but EVERY flight?) My complaints with them go well beyond delayed flights. Yes, I've written to them. Several times. IF I get a response, it's basically "too bad." So they've lost our business. I'll walk first.

If you are traveling on the East coast of the US I really like USAirways the best. I have traveled with them for over 10 years now and have always had great service. For two years of that 10 I was flying every other weekend with my two children and I never encountered any major problems.

My choice of favorite airlines depends on where I am on the plane. Up front, transatlantic, I don't think you can beat Virgin Atlantic's "Upper Class"... a deluxe business class product coming really close to first. British Air's first class is remarkable. Your own private little area with a full bed too boot.

In the back, they are all pretty much the same... but I always prefer a European airline to a U.S. one... service and food is generally better.

I'm with Michael - I'm from Milwaukee WI - home of Midwest Express. I will always use them when I can. Sometimes the flights I need are fully booked or Midwest doesn't fly where I need to go - when this happens, I'm always disappointed in the flight on every other airline.

I'm spoiled - try it, you'll be spoiled too.

My favorite is United for 2 reasons. 1: they replace their parts 1 year before expiration date, and 2: it's a smoke-free airline.
