Interestingly......although not on the list, Southwest Airlines is the
biggest of all the domestic carriers in the U.S.A. I think they should at
east get credit for the distributors of the most peanuts and flight
attendants with the cutest shorts. : )

Air Canada (spelt with a 'C' to us Canadians), did make the list but it
should have been in the category of 'most aloof flight attendants in North
America' and perhaps some small recognition for the 'worst food in coach'
category. I feel they could at least have been nominated for 'cleanest
toilets at the end of a flight'. That would have been nice.

Geez, someone put Lufthansa on a list.....you don't want to make THEM mad!

Very interesting list, Tom. I love lists : )

Arthur

P.S. Marcel.....I love KLM.....don't feel bad....one day, I may even use
them for something.

Well, they *can* improve, I think. Compared to BA they always had
been better regarding my own experience in long-haul business class
flights (maybe Heathrow destroyed each afterglow). Cathay is my
personal favourite as well, no doubt!

May it's because people don't feel too comfortable flying in a plane
being held aloft by the mystical powers of a sorcerer instead of
engines ;-)

Wanna know why they're not on the list?
Because they don't fly out of Amsterdam! :-)

And waddaya mean "the only airline"....how about Qantas?

I have flown most airlines and consider Malaysian Airlines to be the best.
But I did love Delta Airlines in the USA, they are probably out of business
now. They had a positive discrimination policy so all cabin staff were
either disabled black guys or elderly women, the service was absolutely
terrific! Really the best EVER.

I know some may like Air France, but Gabriella and I flew from Paris to
Cape Town and back with them. they made the mistake of randomly choosing
me to fill out a customer survey. It wasn't a positive mark for them.

I cannot say anything about their long distance flights but within
Europe it's horrible. Having the choice using Air France with
almost no service or EasyJet with service you have to pay for I
would take the latter.

Hmm, there might be some people living in France who love to fly
with Air France and I think it has to do with their preferred
language... ;-)

You needed have worried Bob - if it wasn't in French they would have
disregarded it. They have disregarded English for centuries :)
