My Daughter flies to Denver for Thanksgiving and the wife and I will over Christmas. We almost always fly Southwest and that is pretty much the only carrier I really have experience with.

I like them because:

1. I can find cheap fares
2. The service is good
3. 2 bags fly free
4. They don't nickel and dime you to get a decent flight.

The one with the cheapest fair it isn't like the old days they offer very little that another airline doesn't and as for their food LOL I'd prefer a PBJ and sandwich!

The vast majority of my trips are international. I use All Nippon Airways. Excellent service on the ground and in the air.

If domestic, I like Alaska. My second choice is United.

I like Alaska for domestic flights. I use them often and I have always had good luck with them.

Consumers demanding cheap flights has ruined flying in general for me.

If I lived near the west coast, they now have "private jet coops" which would get my business.

Cutest flight attendants work on Delta.

American has very old grouchy female flight attendants.

I agree , the 'Walmart-ification' of air travel has made things worse over the years...

Delta because their customer service is one of the best and because we live in their home town we have decent fares.

Any of them that get me to destination on on time without serious delays or hassle. Includes United, Delta, Swiss Air, Air France

Even Frontier and my RT $70 ticket to Portsmouth NH<> Orlando was incredible flight.

The worst has to be Air Canada for a work fly 4-5 times a year. I have never experienced a positive thing with them including outdated dirty/noisy planes, rude cabin crew (yes Canadians rude!), delays and cancellations.

I flew Southwest once. That was two times too many. Never again.

None of the other airlines are really a favorite, but being near Chicago I tend to split between United and American, which ever is cheaper. And as I get older, I find that I really don't want to deal with any of them anyway.

My all-time favorite airline was the original Midway that was around in the late 80's. Not as many destinations, but if they served somewhere that I wanted to fly, they were my first choice.
