Mm, leather. And knee-high boots. I was looking at mine today and thinking too bad I can't take them to China.

Anyhoo, back on topic.

I don't think I've had any problems with my airlines so far except my recent flight with United - lost luggage! Grrr. And for my trans-pacific, I was like, wtf, they don't have personal entertainment consoles? Heh.

Other than United, I've flown:

MAS
SIA
AirAsia
BA
Cathay
Westjet
And maybe KLM when I was three or so. :P

Not all of it..only the pieces that are obstructing prime real estate....the rest...including the boots....can stay on.

Yeah, off-topic to say the least, but if you spec out a fully loaded one, she gets better!

That's great. Select the leather seats and she breaks out the riding crop and black leather cap....

All airlines I've flown with have already been rated earlier in this thread, except three :

Malaysia Airlines --» Perfect service, food was ok, comfort also.

Royal Nepalese Airlines --» Well... it's the cheapest airline that'll get you to Nepal, but it's a bit freaky.

Lao Airlines --» I have no clue how we made it safe to destination !!!!!!!

I have been on:

MAS- alright service. good entertainment. I got a good seat on this once

Air Asia- No frills.

OS [Austrian Airlines]- Good service.

KLM- entertainment: not recommended.
I have flown with this airlines many times but just recently I took a flight from Amsterdam to Madrid on a smaller plane. Good flight although I had an emergency exit seat.

I should first tell you that I never fly business or first class. I am overdue for an upgrade.

Pan-Am
Jet Blue
South West
KLM
Alitalia
US Airways
US Air
United
Delta
Continental
American Airlines
Nantucket Airlines
Island Air
Cape Air

I never had any real serious complaints. Be polite and smile and there will be no troubles.
