Who are you all flying with??

Hi All
Havent been on here since our last trip in sept/oct 2010. Planning our next one back to the US sept/oct 2013, but still haven't booked flights. Last time we flew Air New Zealand and I was happy with them but we had nothing to compare it to. Not sure on itinerary yet but places to go are New York,Chicago, Vegas, WDW and San Fran dont really want to go back to LA but understand probably have to fly out of there. Need help!! Not much of a planner.

And I thought a Park Hopper was just a Kangaroo in a native reserve.

We flew last time with Virgin Australia. We did transfer at LAX (urgh, I know), but because they fly into terminal 5 and not Tom Bradley, immigration and customs didn't seem nearly as long. I found Virgin service to be phenomenal.

Are you in any frequent flyer program's and / or have lounge access : extra luggage benefits.. That often helps decide between carriers!

We just cancelled our VA booking - got a full refund '*** they changed our final leg (Bris-Chch) on us, leaving us with a 9 hour layover in Brisbane on our way home, which we were NOT thrilled about!
We flew them last time to LA and they were great, but who wants an extra 9 hours at the end of that trip....!
Have now rebooked on Qantas via Dallas/Ft Worth to Orlando and then will use them again to fly NYC-LA and then after our 3 day DL fix, will fly home with them too.

We are still sorting out our domestic carrier for Orlando-Washington DC. DC-NYC we are going by train which looks super easy

Just wanted to add we did NYC-Washington by train-SO easy and comfy. We flew V our last trip to US and thought them very good apart from the dreaded LAX. Internal flights were with SouthWest which we thought were cheap and great (and they included a bag each unlike some other carriers).

We flew V Australia to LAX - we loved it, thought they were great Also flew Virgin America internally and thought they were great too We had to fly Southwest on one section where Virgin didn't fly, and weren't that impressed. Not a fan of the whole no allocated seating thing, and our plane was really old.

I don't have anything to compare to either, but will be flying Qantas long-haul to Europe in 6 weeks - I'll be interested to see how they compare.
