There are hundreds of airlines to choose from when deciding to take a holiday and fly of to fabulous destinations.
Do you have a favourite airline? Or is flying all a bit of a chore for you? More importantly, what makes a great flight experience? Sometimes it could be something totally unrelated to your flying experience. It may just be your traveling companion and or your chosen destination. Most of the time it has a lot to do with the airline, and the service they provide their passengers. If it’s a great service, the airlines are more likely to get repeat passengers.
Whatever the reason, we all experience the thrill of taking a trip. Even the long queues before we check-in our baggage becomes unimportant, ( well sort of). Just as long as we board and get on our way. Depending on your destination, there are two main types of flight service available.
SHORT HAUL – A short-haul can be 2 – 5 hours duration and or within the same Country. Commonly called a “domestic flight”.
LONG HAUL – A long-haul flight is usually beyond 5 hours and from one Country to another.
All of the airlines featured on this page, provide long-haul international flights Some also provide short-haul flights. They have been chosen for their overall good quality service, we’ll add more.
I love to fly, as with many others I like to get the best possible flights. Who I fly with depends on a number of different factors. The destinations the airlines fly to, the flight time and whether I’ve used those airlines before. The overall service, the extras and of course the price tag. If you’ve only got a week off, a short-haul flight rather than a long-haul flight appeal to you more later.
What airline you decide to travel with depends of several factors. You may opt to choose a favourite of yours. Choose one of the big Companies, a household name or a chartered flight. If they can get you to your destination safely, does it really matter which of the airlines you choose? If you live in the UK and whan to travel to Dubai, you might choose to fly with air Emirates. If you’re looking at a European destination, somewhere like London, Paris, Rome. You might choose Finnair or KLM.
Looking at traveling from the other side of the Atlantic. If you are in the USA, and want to travel to London. You could fly with American Airlines, United, Southwest or Virgin Atlantic. All big airline Companies, all well known and all have great service. I’ve been fortunate enough to have used all four carriers.
