Hmmm, another topic in the same vein as "How many airports"...I think mine will be disappointing:

British Airways
Cathay
Singapore
Air Pacific
JAL
Northwest
American Airlines
Horizon
Alaskan
US Air
Canadian (if I've got the correct name, the airline code was CP)
Finnair
Aer Lingus
United
Lufthansa
Hawaiian
China Airlines
Airline with code NH (in Japan)
Dragon Air
Airline with code SF (NAN/TVN)
Scandanavian Airlines
Thai
Bangkok Airways
Southwest
Varig (SAO/CNF)
Air NZ

Sub total = 27

Domestic
Ansett
Hazelton
Australian Airlines (TN)
Whyalla Airlines (WW)
Eastwest (EW)
Airline with code YC, up to Longreach
Airline with code YM (was that Compass I??)

Sub total = 7

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).

Geez you guys are all frequent travellers !!!!!!!!!!

Im on junior traveller but here it goes + Ive added some comments to keep the subject alive

TAA
Compass 1 and 2
Qantas (If BA has % in QF, why the standard so different - Uniform is ave, comfort factor was ok)
Qantas Link
Impluse
Virgin Blue
Ansett (Using a Loaned Singapore Airline Plane to HK was great, they give ya all the food you ask for)


British Airways (Very polite hostess, very "nice" hostess, movies are great)
British Midland
Cathay (Business Class is fantastic, planes and staff are nice and fresh. Used to be a great flight into the old HK airport in Kowloon City)
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)
