I fly over 200,000 miles a year as a gold card frequent flyer with two different (non American), airlines. My company will pay only for economy tickets. My biggest gripe is the economy seats -- they are criminal. If you are five foot tall I guess they are OK. I am over six feet tall and I am disgusted with the cramped conditions. Timothy Garlin, Australia

I fly British Airways or Qantas when going overseas and both have an audio channel with relaxation tapes. On these flights I can sleep as much as five hours. On North American flights the seats are too close together and the noise is too great for anybody to sleep. Kate Shaw, Toronto, Ontario

The majority of long haul carriers insist on serving food they want, when they want ignoring the customer. One airline wakes passengers up to eat food that at best is at room temperature and has absolutely no taste, if you are lucky. Ellen C., Sydney, Australia

Coach airline seats are entirely cramped to get any sleep at all on long flights. New designs are needed to provide at least a modicum of comfort on flights of more than four hours. It is inhuman, like steerage in the old immigrant ships. Linda Umstead, Mililani, Hawaii

We recently flew Virgin Atlantic between Las Vegas and London-Gatwick. Loved the food! They took excellent care of us. Milton Brown, Las Vegas, Nevada

The price of convenience is increasing. Rising gas prices and airfares have people trapped. Driving for hours on end is tiring and stressful, not to mention extremely inconvenient. But what is the alternative? On airlines, passengers are like cattle, herded through checkpoints, inspected by airport security, and served small portions of food (if any at all). J. Flynn, Cary, North Carolina

Flying with British Airways has got to be the best traveling experience I have had. Coming home to the U.S. from London is a long journey, but the flight attendants were nothing short of wonderful to me and my exhausted traveling companions. Gwen, Phoenix, Arizona
