China Southern and Lufthansa. Sad that there is no Aeroflot or Air China.

Adding a other option would be nice.


I also prefer WestJet and Rossyia.


LOT Polish Airlines and Air Canada disgust me.

I've only flown on American Airlines and it was the worst air travel experience by far. My favourite is Porter.

My favorites are
- Lufthansa
-> reliable airline, well maintained jets ...
- Singapore Airlines (to add another option)
-> similar to above plus probably the nicest looking air hostesses
- Air France
-> they have had the best wine selection so far

Of that list

1. Lufthansa probably, efficient service, and complimentary scotch in economy is hard to argue with.

2. AF probably, decent food and wine, IFE and legroom could use some help.

3. United or Delta. United has lots of extra legroom seats for comparatively cheap fees (really important when your 6'4"), though the airline as a whole is a bit of a mess.
Delta is getting better, but has a tendency to cram more rows than others on to a couple of models (MD80s and MD-90s especially)

I have no firsthand experience with US Airways or either of the Chinese carriers

American needs help on a few fronts, but atleast their fleet renewal looks good.

Southwest, not great on a few fronts, plus the worst livery in the sky.

Ryanair, the legroom is actually so shitty I can't sit all the way down, which shouldn't be legal, never, ever, ever doing that again.


Overall Swiss and Turkish are my favs, but I have yet to fly with any Asian or middle Eastern carriers (Would love to try Qatar, Oman, Cathay Pacific or Singapore)
