If they all flew the same route LGW-MCO
Then Tui would be my choice, Food/drink much better, comfier bigger seats, cabin crew that don't ignore you. We flew on the Tui Dreamliner to the Dominican Republic and it was the best flight ever.

Used to be Virgin, but they now fly out of Heathrow and we had a bad experience with them in 2018, so will never fly with them again.

Ba have gone downhill in my opinion, but they are the only airline out of the 3 that fly our preferred route LGW-MCO, so we're stuck with them.

TUI would also be my choice in those circumstances.

The problem is that TUI never fly the routes that I seek these days.

Virgin? Never again unless markedly cheaper after their Covid performance.

BA .. they generally are cheapest, fly my routesÖ and I now collect Avios!

I voted for Virgin because they fly direct from MAN and we collect the miles.

I'll fly with whichever comes out cheaper. Never flown BA as they don't fly direct from Manchester. So its Virgin or Aer Lingus for me who are about the same. Never flown Tui, they always look cheaper but once you start adding luggage costs, seat selection etc they come out more expensive

BA - canít fly direct from Scotland to Miami, but have to connect in Heathrow . Their timetable suits us.

They are all much of a muchness really and all great until you have an issue.

BA are bottom of my list after flying with them for years we had shocking customer service from them after our connecting flight was cancelled both at Heathrow and trying to sort out our expenses and claim afterwards.

Roll on to our next holiday where they cancelled our connecting flight to London around 12 hours before, luckily we got to switch to Aer Lingus from Manchester but had to drive down from Scotland.

So BA flights are a no from me for just now. Thankfully Iíve not seen any deals with connections or prices Iíd have been happy with from them for our holidays since.
