It's ironic that the world's sexiest airline -- RIP, Hooters Air -- is still a Virgin. But these days, that's a good thing. As older carriers battle bad press (say, U.S. Airways) and financial woes (pretty much everyone else), the U.K.-based Virgin Atlantic has kept fares low and customers happy. Since its first flight in 1984, its famously attractive attendants have served 120 million meals and poured more than 4 million glasses of Champagne. Virgin has also recovered countless left-behind oddities, including false teeth and a wooden leg. Pretty fly for an airline. -- DM
