Airlines Flown

I am part of the OneWorld Alliance so I try to fly on partner airlines whenever possible. However when either no partners fly that route or it's much cheaper to fly another airline I will fly another airline at the cost of losing the perks that come with it (lounge access, upgrades, free baggage allowances, etc).
These are my experiences with various airlines to help you decide with home you want to fly! My advice is to stick with one alliance as much as possible so you can reap the benefits. But of course sometimes a cheap flight is just a cheap flight and you have to take it!

Southwest [Budget Airline]
Economy / Premium Economy / Business / First
Short Haul (under 5 hours) / Long Haul (6+ hours)
Domestic / International
Amenities: 2 free bags, free (non-alcoholic) drink, small snacks
I love Southwest. I use it for my short-haul US domestic travel (it's difficult to go coast-to-coast) and if you watch the sales posted on their FB page and email list you can almost always get a good deal. I've very rarely experienced a delay that cuases issues with connecting flights. Extra time is built into the schedule so even if there is a delay the time is made up either significantly or completely. Customer service is also INCREDIBLE and never have problems the few times I've had to call.

American Airlines/US Airways [OneWorld Member]
Economy / Premium Economy / Business / First
Short Haul (under 5 hours) / Long Haul (6+ hours)
Domestic / International
Amenities: Free (non-alcoholic) drink, and now returning to serving snacks and meals! For a while they only served food on flights 5+ hours long. I've mostly flown US Airways while they were in transition being aquired by American Airlines, but had primarily good experiences. I fly American when flying to the other side of the country, often with a layover in Phoenix or Charlotte. I've only ever had one problem when a flight out of Newark, New Jersey was cancelled the night before and I was moved to a flight going out of JFK Airport and wouldn't pay for the extra shuttle I had to take to get to JFK (I had purposfully picked a hotel with a free shuttle to the Newark Airport).

British Airways [OneWorld Member]
Economy / Premium Economy / Business / First
Short Haul (under 5 hours) / Long Haul (6+ hours)
Domestic / International
Amenities: Baggage allowances depend on what fare you purchase. YOu can get cheaper flights with hand baggage only if you're just going away for a wekend and can make it work. Meals provided even on shorter flights (mine was 4 hours) and was not as horrible as most plane food. This was my first experience in Premium Economy and LOVED it. [Side note: I may have been upgraded as a result of a bad customer service experience, but am not 100% sure. I was having problems booking a flight and called to book online and was met with a rude service agent who could not help me at all. I had to wake up at 5am the next morning to deal with it and was still half alseep tyring to comprehend a the British Accent on the other end of the line and I think they upgraded me from economy? Or I paid the extra but wasn't paying attention because of the exchange rate? I'll never know, and had no idea those were the seats I had until I got on the plane- I was still a new traveler and didn't realize it was on my ticket the whole time.] Free alcohol with your meals and champaigne when you get on the plane flying Premium Economy, too!

Alaska Airlines

Cathay Pacific [OneWorld Member]
Economy / Premium Economy / Business / First
Short Haul (under 5 hours) / Long Haul (6+ hours)
Domestic / International
Amenities: Free champaigne when you get on the plane and alcohol with dinner. Meals offered in Chinese or Western style, you get to chose, and was pretty good@
I was upgraded from Premium Ecnomy to Business!! The flight was full so I was bumped up and I just about died. I had a 17 hour layover in Hong Kong and took the opportunity to go out and see the city. When I got back to the airport about 20 minutes before boarding they called my name over the intercom and I was worried they didn't have me as checked in becasue of the long layover or something had gone wrong. When I got to the counter I was told I had a nwe boarding pass, and after looking at the flight attendant confused she told me I was flying business class becuase the flight was full and I chosen because of my frequent flyer status! It was an overnight flight and it was AMAZING to sleep lying down, honeslty the best plane sleep I've ever had!

My new favorite airline, I'm so sad they're only in Australia! Flight attendants are super friendly and go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable. I highly recommend flying whenever possible!

While it is a budget airline and has the smallest amount of legroom I've ever come across, both flights arrived early and were very efficient, and cheap! I flew Perth to Sydney round trip for US$200 which is pretty hard to beat! If you have long legs spring for more leg room, it will be worth it.

Let me know your experiences on these airlines! Is there anything I'm missing or have you had a better/worse experience?
