Which Airline Do You Use When You Travel?

The other day I was talking with a friend about travelling and having to fly to most of my travel destinations (ugh) and I intimated that I only fly Delta.

Just Delta? they asked. Yep! Just Delta! But the thing is, other than a good safety record,.. I have no idea why!

What about you guys? What airlines do you fly and why?

Delta for me, mainly because that is THE airline in Atlanta. I also fly American when i travel out west. In fact i have a Delta flight to catch this afternoon.

Northwest (because it does the only direct flights to Detroit from Boston) and U.S. Airways (because it is the major airliner at Boston's airport).

Well, I have to fly with my company's preferred providers which limits my choices to about three airlines. Usually, I end up having to fly American.

Argh Ansett.

I would prefer QANTAS at all times...."gotta fly QANTAS". I cant think of that airline without thinking Rainman.

I have a fear of airlines with those really slim aeroplanes. I need a big fat Boeing.

well I used to always fly with Continental...till my dad retired a couple years ago I still try to use them when I can if it's affordable, but usually I just use whatever is cheapest that Travelocity.com finds me...last time I flew it found US Airways, this time when I'm going to Vegas, I'm flying American Airlines, but I really have no preference.

The prices that I found on Delta, at least this time, were actually more expensive

I've flown Southwest a lot, just because it's SO cheap.
