I haven’t had the opportunity to fly via QR (booked BA for Doha trip), so I am yet to give a review for them. So far, from the above list, I’ve already flown with CX, EK and EY. (TK & AK/PQ booked 4th Qtr 2012).
I’m a big fan of EY & EK and did cast my vote in the polls. Both deserve their slots (if not higher, hehe). Whenever I travel to MNL (9hours at least), I prefer to fly with either of them as they provide the best service at great fares. The roomiest seats, superb food, friendly cabin crew, unlimited inflight entertainment options, modern airport facilities, and the list goes on…I’ve actually booked already for MNL with EY for Dec 2012 holidays, = )
Flown with CX once, way back 2007 from MNL to BAH (my first overseas flight) and still remember the huge HKG airport, friendly smiles of the cabin crew in red uniform, roomy seats (yes, i love it when i’m able to stretch my legs), endless meals (i think they served at least 4 times on that flight).
TK booked in October to Muscat, while AK / PQ booked in December for Hong Kong & Macau. Will post reviews after the trip, = )
– The flight journey to every destination, is a whole adventure in itself.
