    Imperial Airways – loved the flying boats
    Pan-American – but just who was the captain really working for?
    Dan Air – you never knew just how many leaks and drips a plane could operate with.

    Okay, being serious: BCal were superb in their time. At the other end of the spectrum, old style Balkan Bulgarian Airlines… How did they ever manage end-to-end connections lasting 18-24 hours via Sofia without serving a serious meal en route to the Far East? That was sub-economy before O’Blarney had ever thought of it.

    Ah! I’ve always wonderred where airlines based in the US got their templates for how to treat passengers. I hope to fly on some your favourites one day, I’d probably giggle with joy for most of the flight.

    Who can beat Emirates A380 with their showers and impeccable service?

    Winair in the Caribbean. Flying from Saint Martin to the neighboring little islands. No inflight service, but an absolute thrill for take off and landing.
    Look them up at youtube. Try it if you dare!

    Another small one that I remember flying on was Sierra Leone Airways out of the no 2 airport in Freetown..not Lungi.

    Cant remember aircraft but 10 seater job and believe it was on charter from B.Cal who used to fly tourists down that way in those days (before the troubles)

    Another that springs to mind from Nigeria was a bit dodgy sounding Continential air …single 707..(no relation to the real)

    Local Al Hadgi owned it and did moonlight freight flights into Stansted and through connections could always jump a lift but had to sleep on the freight.
