What do you think the most underrated airline. I believe it is U.S. Airways. I don't think many people give them the credit they deserve for serving all of the east coast and serving many small cities with a large regional network as well as coast to coast service, good fleet, and good service.

America West - People still think that they are what they were 4-8 years ago, but they have changed! Give them a chance!

Agreed on both US Airways, and American West.

Both have struggled to rebuild a battered image.

How about Air Tran. Quietly going about it's business.

I would say NZ and HP are under rated.

America West is great for the states.

Air New Zealand have the best crew

Here Here, I agree. Call me biased on this one  Big grin
NZ is underrated yes, and in my opinion so is QF. What about the airlines that are overrated? IN my opinion, SQ is way overated and I hear EK is the same.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

USAirways, Continental and America West.

Over the past years, these three airlines have undergone massive changes, for the better.

And the best part is, all three are wonderful airlines.

Delta767300ER... have you been to the Civil Aviation forum? All anyone can talk about is AirTran's wonderful/horrible new livery.

From a UK/Eire view:

In terms of service: bmi. OK, nobody can fathom out their business strategy but their product is excellent and I've heard nothing but rave reviews regarding their transatlantic services.

In terms of punctuality and value for money: Ryanair. We hear so much here on A.Net about what cheapskates they are, but they are superb at what they aim to do: enable millions of people to travel around Europe cheaply (if booked in advance), reliably and safely.



Like a fine wine, one gets better with age.

US Airways, and thats my unbiased opinion. This last quarter they were the airline with the best on-time performance. I think we are recovering nicely.  Smile

I think Malaysian Airways is also quite underrated!, Very good service and polite F/A.

Regional Express (REX). Bought two airlines that were operating under administration and molded them into one and managed to break even in 2 years.

O.k. I am biased too, as I have played my part to make this happen, but we have done well to get where we are today.  Big thumbs up

Some of what we have had to deal with are:

  • Chapter 11

  • Post September 11

  • SARS

  • WAR

  • High oil Prices

  • Draught

  • Qantaslink


  • GO REX

    Strange... Nobody has mentioned Aeroflot.

    I have never flown on them, but it upsets me to hear that people don't want to fly them just 'cuz they're Russian, and that everything russian was bad....

    Well, at least they're better than before 1990  Big grin

    AirTran. I have been flying them since the pre-ValuJet days. They have done a great job...just wish Biz Class was a bit more...but for the price...can't expect all that! I racked up a bit over 100 credits in the last year, seems Concourse C was my friend.

    The sad thing is, I love DAL, but they just won't match prices on last minute trips. If they would, might help their survival.

    Finnair.

    They are quietly building up their operation into something special.
