In your opinion, who is your least favorite LCC in the USA?

I'd say NK.


Not all of us can be heroes, some of us can only stand on the sidewalk and clap as they go by.

You mean US Scareways. (Their operating certificate hasn't been combined yet, but still.)

Neither of these are LCC.

They would like you to think they are. After all, the new US stock code is LCC.

I don't have high regards for US either. They want to be an LCC, but their in-flight service compares to UA and AA, not WN, B6, F9, FL, etc.

Hmmm, I would agree based on some ticket prices I've seen, but the quality of the service sure is Low Cost.

My vote - unfortunately - is US. They have a LONG way to go . . . .

I opened this thread to vote US Airways and found that most of you already have. Check out my recent post to the thread I started 10 days ago regarding their F class product. The reality is they showed absolutely no class.

US is still a stodgy legacy to me (but then again, I live in CLT)

And thus, I vote for FL

My "US Scareways" wasn't a vote for US. US has been pretty good to me, with the exception of those awful CRJ900s. I really dislike WN. Nothing is worse than customer service agents that blatantly lie to you.

One of the video advertisements shown throughout my flight extolled USAirways as 'the full-service, low cost carrier', so I'll count them in with the LCCs.

I dont count US in the LCC's yet. To me, theyre still a legacy carrier. Well see what Parker does in the future, but in the mean time, my vote goes for Southwest. Ive always hated their product and always will. Sorry to all the WN fans, but they just arent my kind of airline.

If you base this poll on quality of carrier service to mean a "low cost carrier" you mine as well add AA in there too. Today's service compared to what it was ten years ago is - disgusting.

No... I think he is talking about actual LCCs in which case US would be one.

Southwest Airlines hands down. Southwest has a boring fleet, dirty aircraft, annoying Crew Members, ugly paint scheme, and lack of destinations. I know a lot of people love them but they aint my kind of airline.

Isn't it getting difficult to distinguish Low COST Carriers? During bankruptcy, most of the legacies have dramatically reduced their costs and now can offer competitive fares with the likes of WN, JetBlue, AirTran, etc. As many have noted, sometimes legacies have lower fares between point A and B.

I think we should throw the terms LCC and Legacy out the window and just use the term "airline."

While I don't hate any of them I'd rank WN last out of LCC's I have significant experience on. Favorite would have to be F9 followed by B6 and Airtran.

Yes, they are. LCC = Low Cost Carrier....not Low Fare Carrier. I rarely find WN or F9 or any other LCC to be cheaper than most legacy airlines out of IND/ORD/MDW (sometimes WN takes it there...) but their whole idea is keeping the cost of their business down, not the airfares. Often times lower air fares result from the LCC model, but not always. Actually operating as an LCC is another story, but US/HP seems to be working towards that goal. It will take time, however....I should imagine there is more than a kink or two they have to work out.

Are you daft? They're a legacy. There's nothing low cost about them.

They're still one of the highest priced carriers in any Kayak.com or other discount search. I've given up on US's website because their quoted fares are so ridiculously and unreasonably expensive.

25 Boston92 : Uhh, no. Economy class maybe, but the premium First classes do not compare in anyway. If you ask me, US Airways should not be a part of the Star Alli
26 Post contains links FutureUALpilot : No, they are working to be the nation's largest full service, low cost carrier. In a sense, I think we are both correct,they are still a legacy becau
27 DeltaDAWG : WIthout a doubt - US. Bad service, can't make up their mind if they are a legacy or LCC. Now, that said of the true LCC's - WN! Why, I am not cattle.
28 Abrelosojos : US Airways. Though, my carrier of choice (United) might join rank with their recent cuts in services. -A.
29 ExFATboy : Another vote for US here...
30 AirCop : Ditto for Phoenix. For instance PHX-FLL in March, US = $329 DL=$235. Service to IAD from PHX sometimes has been $500 more than another airline 1-stop
31 JetBlueAUS : LCC does not necessarily mean low fares.
32 Itsnotfinals : US to cities they compete with with WN are always the same price thankfully.
33 Alitalia744 : in my experience the award would go to US Airways
34 Lucky42 : Isn't that the truth..They have their employees pay rate down lower than most if not all LCC at least the pilot group anyway...Funny thing is that SW
35 B6sFinest : Even though I fly them because i have to to DAY to see my family I would definetly say FL. I say this because I have worked for them in MCO and I flew
36 DesertAir : As a coach traveler, I find service on LCCs and Legacy carriers to be just about the same-a seat and a soft drink. I fly alot to California from Tucso
