What is your least favorite airline and why?

Mine would have to be Southwest, I don't like the aircraft, paint scheme, boarding procedure, and unprofessional flight attendents.

A3801 i agree with you, i can't stand southwest either. while i admire their business model and their ability to succeed in the economic conditions of the market right now, I HATE FLYING ON THEM!!!!

I hate BUR too, its a glorified bus stop.

Apart from that I would never fly KOREAN AIR (a.k.a. hanguk air), China Airlines or Singapore Airlines.

For me, it would be Australia's own QANTAS. I don't know why, but it's probably because of the legroom the aircraft offers. But then again, this is a long time ago. I have never flown them in the past 5 years, so can't really comment on that. But for now, I think it's Lion Air of Indonesia. It's aircrafts are terrible. Feels terrible, looks un-maintained, noisy, crappy interior.

I've never been on a Southwest before, but looking at Airbus3801 and AirxLiban, looks like they don't like it at all, so I wouldn't fly them too.

AeroRepublica, Consistent bad service and always delayed. Im talking about 2 flights i´ve had with them and experiences my friends and family have told me.

I cant stand Southwest. They attack the majors in such a way that make them fire people but then SouthWest doesnt give those people a job.

Why do they have to give the people a job? Was it their fault that the airline was using an old, outdated, and inefficient business model incapable of competing with WN?

Anyway, my least favorite airline is America Worst.

Too many horror stories to type...

United. I've always experienced surly or borderline incompetent staff, IAD is quite possibly the worst domestic airport to be a hub thanks to the fact that terminal-to-terminal transportation is reliant upon the old mobile lounges. It's time to fly, alright...another airline.

Of the airlines I have flown, my least favorite has been Virgin Atlantic. No other airline I have flown has come close to taking that title away from them either

"I cant stand Southwest. They attack the majors in such a way that make them fire people but then SouthWest doesnt give those people a job."

Let me make sure I have this right. WN is responsible for the bancrupcies of UA, US, and TWA, the pending bancupcies of ATA and Delta, and CO and AA losing money. Is this correct?

1. WN doesn't even service DL's two largest hubs (ATA, CVG)
2. WN barely covers any of US routes and did not even serve any of their three hubs until a few months ago when WN began serving PHL.

I won't go on anymore....

I encourage those who blame WN for the demise of the legacy carriers to educate themselves on the state of the airline industry and why it is that way. And please, don't blame unions or fuel prices. Let's not make anymore scapgoats.

for me it would have to be United. I had to edure their 'hospitality' on 3 legs recently (SYD-LAX-JFK-LHR). Every flight was like being on a bus and I couldn't wait to get off. (ESPECIALLY LAX-JFK!!)

Im not saying WN is responsible for the bankruptcies of these carriers, im rather saying its kinda responsible for hundreds of families who dont have a sustain....B6 has forced AA to cut flights and they dont add more flights to attend that market, or add more but dont take more people in, thats my point.

That's part of any business, be it aviation or anything else...companies are always trying to run other companies out of business and maximize profit. It's how the business world works. Southwest just does it better then most airlines. Don't be a hater  Wink/being sarcastic

While I agree with you that inter-terminal connecting at IAD is quite bad, surely this is not United's fault?



It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.

United or Gulf Air.

UA has untidy planes, old aggressive FA's, are culturally insensitive of everyone but the american public.

GF cause they have cheap fares for even cheaper passengers. Once arriving in Sydney, one lady got so drunk she stripped off and ran uo and down the aisles while a GF FA through a blanket over her. Families are split up and seperated when they have never travelled on a plane.
Oh and the women that get on wearing burka's, and just as they approach the seat, 5 children jump out from underneath her screaming.
Oh and the monochrome TV's on their 340's. The canned spaghetti that they try and pass off as pasta. And the 'I dream of Jeannie' uniforms of the attendants.
I can think of more but Im tired.

The worst airline I had the displeasure of flying was Rich International - service? It was nonexistent, except for a rude rebuke from one of the stewardesses for wanting to look out the window and not close my shade (no, there was no in-flight movie). Meals on a trans-Atlantic flight - a light snack while the aircraft was descending into JFK. Awful, awful, awful.

Black eyes to: Nordair, a Canadian charter outfit in the 1980s whose management compromised safety for profit, with the tragic result of one of their DC-8s crashing and killing all aboard. Also: Tower Air - an airline that I never flew but of which one hears nothing but bad and scary stories both on A.net and other fora on the Web.

I used to not like flying USAir in the 1980s and early 1990s (planes in poor condition, surly service), but my recent experience on the airline (now US Airways) was pretty good.

I agree with the first two posts, I don't care for Southwest. Mainly becasuse of their seating procedures and inflight "entertainment" by the flight attendants.

Actually, this is the third time WN has attacked US, with each time being more critical to US. First, WN ran US out of the west coast where they flew the former PSA flights. The second time was at BWI, and the third being PHL. The attack at PHL was the last straw before I started REALLY REALLY hating WN. Me being affected by this attack also helps with my opinions with WN.
