    I just did a trans-Atlantic flight on Air Canada. Maybe the most comfortable, pampered flights I've been on for economy class. They fed us twice and the food was surprisingly good. All the wine you can drink for no extra charge.

    baldursnaer saidIcelandair.


    I laughed when I saw Icelandair mentioned twice--
    Have they improved since the early 80's?
    I flew them twice back then and each time we were packed so tight in those DC8's. They were the cheapest thing going back then to Europe and the cheapest destination was Luxembourg ( it might have been the only destination). Either things have changed or you guys are being facetious!

    I just noticed baldurnaer, that you are in Reykjavik do you have any other choices out of Iceland?


    Yes, either United or Delta now services NYC from Keflavik and at one point you could fly to Halifax on Air Canada. There was briefly another Icelandic carrier "Iceland Express" to Newark but I believe that is gone.

    I think Icelandair's service is pretty good and they were reasonable when we needed them. They were indeed once the flag carrier of Luxembourg but I don't believe they fly there any more at all. They operate 757s and 737s now, and you can connect with a few days stay in Iceland if you like, if you are headed to mainland Europe.

    EDIT: I am kind of surprised that nobody flies from Reykjavik to Winnipeg nonstop, because there are more ethnic Icelanders in Manitoba than anywhere else in North America.

    JetBlue in the states.

    Many years ago, I used to like United - now it is the worst. Emirates if you can fly business class transatlantic - otherwise not very good.

    Southwest ... no change or bag fees, bullet-proof website, slightly less uncomfortable seats.

    Qantas ,

    Qantas has never had a fatal jet airliner accident!
    In its early days (between 1927 and 1946 ) before the widespread adoption of the jet engine in civilian aviation. These were mainly biplanes or flying boats servicing routes in Queensland and New Guinea. The incidents between 1942 and 1944 were during World War II, when Qantas Empire Airways operated on behalf of the military.

    In 2014, Qantas was rated the world's safest airline by Airline Ratings.

    Yea they just gobbled up US Airways, which previously gobbled up America West (although I think that was a case of the tail wagging the dog). American also swallowed up TWA shortly after 9-11.

    United absorbed Continental and -- from what I hear -- all of the improvements Continental has made in recent years have been completely undone.

    Delta absorbed Northwest, Western, and a large part of Pan Am. If I had to guess, of the three big boys, they are in the best shape and have the best product at the moment.

    I usually fly Delta since they generally have the best schedules to where I want to go from SYR. And I have found that their customer service is excellent. At one time United was my favorite, but since the (attempted-still have gotten it right!) merger with Continental they have become Untied...I have had nothing but problems the last two times that I have tried to book a flight with them(What? You mean you don't want a 9 1/2 hour layover in IAD?)

    I'm flying JetBlue for the first time in November so I'll let you know. But it's a red eye back from LAS so I'll probably sleep through most of it anyway!

    South African. They manage to make the Joburg to JFK flight not totally suck. Must get the decent food and free booze. Plus if you aren't flying on he weekend d th plane is usually only half full did you have room to stretch out. Plus, you can have the exit row just for asking.

    All pretty much the same but ever since Delta made a mistake on my reservation and then had the gall to make me pay to change their error (they even agreed they had made the error) I refuse to fly Delta ever again. That is the worst in customer "service," and they have lost a customer for life.

    Not really because I prefer it, but because I base in San Francisco. United is my choice because I can get to most of the places I need to go non-stop, or with a stop in either Houston or Newark (depending upon the season). I'm also a points whore. I'm about to rack up about an extra 120,000 miles for my flights between May and August 31. I usually get upgraded except on international long haul flights where I haven't booked a higher revenue fare class ticket.
