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.

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.

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.

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."

Quoting AsstChiefMark (Reply 11): US Airways isn't a LCC. They consistently have the highest fares of all airlines flying out of MSP.
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.
