1) Cathay Pacific, Only downside with CX is their prices are outrages especially compared to airlines such as Emirates. I would live of CX food if I could! The only airline I have experienced where I would always order more food, wether in business or economy.
2)Got a picture of me as a baby sitting in the cockpit
4) KLM or Qantas... hate them so much im undecided which is worst... I'd rather take my chances long haul on jet2 then either of those two airlines!
I have also tried the following airlines:
-Air france: great food, crap service.
-emirates: Didn't live up to expectation
-Singapore: Inconvenient except for travelling to and from Singapore based on my personal experience.
-Japan Airlines: Lack of excitement.
-Thai: Cabin interrior looked and felt old on my few flights with them.
-Thai orient: Only good thing was low LF!
-Dragonair: great to hop around asia, not a large destination choice
-Lux Air: Only had 4 flights with them, nothing exceptional
-Jet2: Cattle class feels like luxary compared to EZ and Ryan...
-Kenyan airlines: First time I had actually feared for my safety on a flight!
-Air Laos: First time on a turbo prop, fun experienced, transfered to Thai on return leg due to their only aircraft in fleet broken down.... which happened on the outgoing leg!
-Flybe: Cant complain but cant praise.
-Qantas: All flights to my chosen destination full for months apart from Qantas, I even looked at flying to Europe (from Hong Kong) to then fly to Australia on a seperate airline... On arrival I changed my return leg to another Airline before collecting my luggage!! (That was 2nd flight with them, first one was what put me off in the first place!)
-KLM: Only flew them because my AF flight was cancelled due to snow, was put in a 5 star hotel and quickest way back was with KLM, I felt so ripped off after paying the AF price that I managed to claim my money back! (Pre-AF/KLM merger)
Emirates could have easily been my favourite but I think the dissapointement was the fact that its so well spoken of that you end up with an unrealistic expectation and
it leaves you disappointed.... Had I not chosen Emirates for what people have said about them, im sure they would be very close contenders to CX.
