Question Do you have a "must have" airline?

Hi all,
I want to know if you decided to have all the available planes of one/some airlines in your collection. I decided for the fallowing:

- Alitalia (no Herpa OG but I made many customs)
- Aeroflot (new colors)
- Air Dolomiti
- Air China
- Air Canda
- CP Air
- Court Line
- Delta
- Northwest
- TAAG

I also decided to collect all the available planes from Thailand (Thai,Orient Thai,Bangkok Air...) and I try to fill the JAL and ANA fleet with missing models, even if it's quite impossible.
Also canadian and chinese airlines are often in my wishlists when new releases are available.

The Emirates fleet is an easy "must have" with the exception of the Boeing 777-200s in all versions. I need just those and the A310 Freighter to have the entire fleet.

Another easy "must have" is the Cathay Pacific fleet. Now I'm waiting to the Boeing 777W to be produced by them.

Thumbs up Re: Do you have a "must have" airline?

I'd like to see a Southern Air Transport C-130. Also, how about a UPS 727 and DC-8. On that note, how about a BAX DC-8 or an Airborne DC-9.

Carry on lads.

Swiss (hence the user name)
Aeroflot (hence the avatar)




But not necessarily all planes, just all of those that are contemporary or reasonably close to it.
