Default Favorite Small Commercial Airline in the USA + Canada?

My personal favorite, though I have never flown on them is Allegiant Air, due to their MD-80 fleet and they just pop with thier design.
Excludes: Delta, American, United, jetBlue, Air Canada, Alaska, Frontier and Southwest

My favorite was Aloha because they flew those classic 737-200s all the way to their shutdown 3-31-2008 in fact their last flight was on a 737-200. I just find that cool they had that variant in mainstream operation for almost 40 years.

I also like Zip Airlines their 737-200s were painted in those outrageous
green,fuchsia,blue and pink they were only around for 2 years though...

I just saw an Allegiant MD80 over my house on approach to Oakland. What a Gorgeous Aircraft!

North America: Provincetown-Boston Airlines
Asia: Bouraq

..... I have a special place for PBA as a pilot friend and I leased one of their DC-3s (N34PB) for a week. He was a commercial pilot and I was able to sit in the right seat working on mine (never did finish ). He got a pile of cargo contracts and we made a tidy profit in that week. Flying that DC-3 was the absolute high point of all the flying I ever did. Sad to turn it back over at Logan.

Yeah, I flew with them last year from Chisinau in Moldova to Vienna on a Fokker 70, very pleasant, but we are off topic and for that I apologise.
