    Ap2010:  only heard of 3 of those. My favourite airline of all I’ve flown with is KLM. Great food, service and comfort.

    We always flown Southwest. They give military a pass on overweight bags, no assigned seating, and they’re reasonably priced.

    I go for jet blue and virgin. I find the customer service way above the rest. I went out of my way to fly with one of them for my DW because I know most of the employees care and dont brush you ofF. I have had the worst luck with united but I fly with them sometimes because I usually Have a credit because they have such bad service they offer us something and free flyifng is the Best. They are cheap but, we get delayed 80% of the time with them.

    I don’t fly much, and my options are usually WestJet or AirCanada.  I always pick WJ.  AC used to be bad for purposely overbooking their flights, at the time WJ didn’t.  I don’t know how many times people will be on similar flights and the AC one gets delayed where as the WJ doesn’t.  I haven’t gone with AC enough to compare service on the flight.

    WJ has done some pretty cool campaigns too, overall they just seem friendlier.

    Unless you’re talking one of the better carriers based outside of the USA (Air New Zealand, Singapore, Asiana, Virgin Altantic (but Virgin Atlantic only in Business class)), they’re all the same. You will find comfy planes and dirty planes, good service and bad service, high prices and low prices, and on-time or late flights on every single American carrier. Unless you’re flying enough to hit top status with one carrier and get a lot of benefits, there’s no point in shopping around– pick the price and schedule that works and don’t look back.

    Southwest is my favorite. Delta is by far my least favorite.

    I like Delta. I always get one checked bag free, I like their alcohol options, and I have never felt unsafe on one of their flights.

    Domestically, I usually fly anywhere from 5-12 times a year and they’re all the same to me, I just fly whatever is cheapest.  In general, non American based airlines have better customer service on flights imo.  I do hate US air for charging a fee to fly stand by on and earlier flight and like the flexibilty no fee change that south west has though.

    Southwest. I have a ton of points so I always fly for free wherever I go haha. 

     

    If it weren’t for the points I would go with whatever carrier was cheapest.

    Speaking purely domestic, we like American.  They just added the brand new air bus to several routes, and first class is AMAZING!!

    Hmmm… I’ve never flown in America, but I believe my favourite airline (Emirates) has somewhat recently started flying out of the US.. Would highly recommend them if you get the chance!
