Emirates has always delivered a good experience for us. Their planes are comfortable for long-haul flights and their entertainment system is fantastic.

I usually fly Etihad or Emirates enroute to European destinations as both have fantastic inflight service, plus I get to have a free layover in their hub in UAE. For a full day stopover, I go out of the airport and do whatever I want (sightseeing, dining, shopping). Depending on your connecting flight, if you have a long layover in Dubai, Emirates also provides a special service called 'Dubai Connect' which includes complimentary stay in their airport hotel, meals and shuttle.

Budgets are key with this. Viva in south America is a good option, as long as you read the fine print.

Latam has been very helpful when booked through third parties. We had issues with the company GoToGate / FlightNetwork, and LATAM helped coordinate this fix.

My favourite airline is Etihad airways. At least I know there are couple of flights available weekly. The airline didn’t stop its flights even during the pandemic so I feel confident there will be flights when I need.

Also one where the airlines have retrained their pilots well with lots of flying hours to allay safety concerns, especially around landings.

I think one with terms and conditions that are sympathetic to COVID and changing conditions around the pandemic. I can't name any that I know of who have a good policy, however I know people had trouble getting money back from Air Asia, Qatar and Qantas when COVID first hit.
