What is your
favorite airline?

“Southwest Airlines. They are true to their word and offer no false pretenses on what you are buying. What more can you ask for? Plain old honesty.”

Wanda A. Claiborne, CMP
Director of Meetings and Bar Liaison
Maryland State Bar Association
Baltimore, Md.

“British Airways. They still deliver the type of positive flight service experience that has become a mere memory on some other carriers. My first international upgrade was on British Airways, in my budget backpacking days, so they’ll always have a special place in my heart.”

Debra Silvestrin
Director of Meetings and Special Projects
Association of Alternative Newsweeklies
Washington, D.C.

“Overall, Delta has been pretty good and has lost my luggage only once in 40 years.”

Janet Glick
Director of Convention Sales
The Grand America and Little America hotels
Salt Lake City, Utah

“I can’t say I have a favorite airline. Other than a few little perks with some carriers, there is very little to distinguish the service between any of the domestic airlines. For me, it is all about convenience, schedule and price.”

Tim Ford
Executive Director
