I stick with Delta for the most part as Salt Lake City is one of their hubs. I've occasionally flown Southwest if I'm going on a short flight somewhere and Southwest has a better rate.

+1

I retract my previous statement. This is what I meant.

[color="red"]*[/color]Spirit is never my favorite even if it is the cheapest.

I'm a big fan of Virgin, as they fly direct from SFO to Reagan, which makes life much easier for me getting to and from the airport. If you don't have a car and you have to go to Dulles, it's either a 2-hour bus trip or a $60 cab ride, going to Reagan it's a twenty minute, three dollar subway ride. If you book smartly with them, you can get flights for next to nothing (I paid something like 7500 elevate points for a flight, and each flight I make about 3000, so I essentially got a free flight after only two.)

Lufthansa hands down. Although I've had good experience with KLM as well.

I don't fly much domestic and the few times I did (Delta, US Airways, United), I had a bad experience, service was rude, stewardesses were not 20s and 30s (personal preference :D ). I guess I have to try AA (before they merge), Southwest or JetBlue.

Never tried Virgin but thats on my bucket list. They don't fly to my City so it makes it tough to get a ride with them.

Lufthansa and KLM both good.

I like them both.
