    Overseas: Air New Zealand (both as TE and NZ), Canadian, BA, Singapore, Qantas, AA, TWA, Northworst (truly appalling), Delta, Delta Connection, Origin Pacific.

    I'm embarressed, as mine's too small..... the list! the list!

    (seriously).... nobody mentioned, or admitted, to having ever flown AEROFLOT.

    Has anyboby had an experience on the old Russian carrier?

    My sister did. She reckoned it cost her about 200 English Pounds to fly from London to Sydney, via Moscow on Aeroflot.

    She said, the meals were all 'back to front', with a simple 'roast beef' being served for breakfast (London time when she boarded), something that resembled pasta at other times.

    She also says.... "never again!"

    regards,

    Looks like there's some tough competition on this one.

    Firstly, in response to Gordon's comments, I'd like to say that my wife and I have flown Aeroflot, from DEL to SIN (it was preferable to Air India). The Flight crew appeared to be quite competent, and the plane (an IL-62) flew quite nicely. Food was adequate, also (not Indian).

    As far as other airlines are concerned, I haven't flown on that many, preferring the Star Alliance to maximise my FF points. Well, here goes:

    Australian Airlines:

    Kendell (KD)
    EastWest (EW)
    Ansett (AN)
    Virgin Blue (DJ)
    Qantas (QF)
    Rex (ZL)
    Hazelton
    Impulse
    TAA
    Australian Airlines
    Aeropelican

    Overseas Airlines:

    Air New Zealand (NZ)
    Air Pacific (FJ)

    Continental (CO)
    Pan Am (PA)
    Trans World (TW)
    United (UA)
    US Airways (US)
    American Airlines (AA)
    Alaska Airlines (AS)
    Aloha (AQ)
    Hawaiian (HA)

    Aeromexico (AM)

    Malaysian (MH)
    Philippine Airlines (PR)
    Thai (TG)
    Garuda (GA)
    JAL (JL)
    All Nippon (NH)
    Singapore (SQ)
    Korean (KE) - remember KE007?
    Air China (CA)

    Air India (AI)
    Indian Airlines (IC)

    Saudi Arabian Airlines (SV) - wot, no drinks???
    Emirates (EK)

    British Midland (BM)
    British Airways (BA)
    Alitalia (AZ)
    KLM (KL)
    Sabena (SN)
    EasyJet (U2)
    Ryanair (FR)
    Lufthansa (LH)
    SAS (SK)
    LOT (LO)
    Aeroflot (SU)
    Olympic (OA)

    I'm sure I've forgotten a few, and haven't included several British charter airlines such as Britannia and Airtours (not real airlines).

    Qantas Link
    Impluse
    Virgin Blue

    British Airways (Very polite hostess, very "nice" hostess, movies are great)

    Dragon Air
    China Air (very loud "the people")
    Emirates (Great airline, the more oil Dubai pumps out, eventually the planes will be gold, uniforms are too brown/beige)
    Thai Air
    Egypt Air (No seat allocation, just jam jam jam, tetra packed juice was OK
    )
    Easyjet (took 1hr to defrost the plane at CDG Paris)
    Ryan Air
    South African (comfortable domestic planes, excellent food)
    Kenyan Air (really good service for a London - Nairobi, better than Qantas)
