What’s your favorite airline and why?

Southwest (personal use), cause I can change my flight last minute without a a fee.


Like you fly on biz and fc all the time on Etihad... give me a break.


JetBlue and Southwest. Simple and great customer service. Rarely delays. American would be at the bottom of my list. Nothing but delay after delay. Staff hates their lives and the airline reflects it!


Based in Houston and I like to use my PTO in international travel so... United (RIP Continental). Star Alliance has the largest network and with status United’s customer service is significantly better than the baseline experience .


Southwest - Companion Pass >>>


Delta, for domestic, since it gives lots of benefits on points/miles and getting a status is faster than others


Short Answer:
Domestic - Delta
International - Singapore Air or Cathay Pacific

Long Answer: Tie between Singapore Airlines and Cathay Pacific. Have always had an exceptional flight on them.

Here in the US, all the airlines stink if you have no status. I had Diamond with Delta for a while, that was nice - they'd bend over backwards sometimes to help you. Now I'm just another peon with no status and it sucks.


Southwest friendly and easy!! The Points earned are great and easy to use


IAH based, so United. Super tolerable once you hit 1k status. I aggressively play the points game for United points (earned 1M+ in the last year), then redeem it on pricey international fares with superior Star Alliance partners (ANA, Eva, Lufthansa, etc.) that have routes to IAH.


Anything but AA


Domestic - AA ; better points value for international travel
International - Emirates hands down. Best service, newer aircrafts


Etihad, their biz and first class experiences are amazing


Etihad for International
AA for domestic. DFW leaves no options


Malaysian air. Always a mystery where you will end up


Delta..not a lot of delays like United or AA.. only cons..not so great partner airlines


Whatever airline can get me in & out the quickest.


I’m west coast and found Alaska Airlines has the best customer service (former Delta diamond here)


Pretty much all domestic airlines suck because it's an oligopoly. Delta and United aren't bad. I never fly SW so I can't speak to it but American sucks. They cancelled two flights on Thursday nights before I had PTO for things they could have prevented.

IAH Based. United. I hate AA, nothing but problems every time I am forced to fly them.

+1 for Delta: miles never expire, they have the most functional mobile app of all domestic carriers (seamless flight changes, FC upgrades, etc), and they have some of the better lounges.

Runner up for me is Southwest - Companion pass, easy flight cancellations, easy Concur rebookings directly with my SWA flight credits, and their satellite-based gate-to-gate internet and free streaming live TV on your phone or tablet cant be beat.

Now if Southwest can finally execute on getting their ETOPS cert from the FAA to do 737-Max 8s to Hawaii like they advertised, my RRs might be a whole lot more valuable...

So I have dabbled in stocks for 10 years but always a small amount. Since last year I have gradually raised the amount and have made significant profits ( 40k last year n 160k+ this year so far). The latter amount is even more than what me or my wife individually make annually. I am very passionate about it but wondering can and should I take it up on a full time basis in 5 years from now. I have 10+ years of experience and have studied at a top 10 US b-school. Thoughts/suggestions?
