Hello!!

I was wondering whatis the crappiest airline of your country? For the US, I cant really say anything becuse they have all been great. But for Mexico, Aerolineas Internationales id the crappiest.

YOUR OPINION???????

Hello,

Don't really reply to these posts, but for me in Ireland, crappiest airline is Aer Arann. Still waiting for news about that picture they "borrowed" from me for an add in a newspaper, and that is about 8 months ago at this stage.

HI:

Altough in Chile we have only two carriers (Lan Chile/Lan Express, and Aero Continente Chile)., with a good service; the crappiest airline in chile would be Aero Continente Chile.

Best Regards,
RJ_Delta.

Hello,

UK_Dispatcher, well as I mentioned, they stole my picture. I also had other personal reasons for hating them, including replacing one of my favourite airlines (Aer Lingus) from my local airport to Dublin (ok, that doesn't make them crappy)

OH-LZA, a little easier said than done. That will cost me more than I ever could hope to get out of them for the picture. Tried to bring them to the small claims court for €10 until I found out that the small claim's court only deals with consumer issues. Still trying to think up something.

Well, Seems like N766UA has some talking to do. I have flown on AirTRAN Twice, and they are a fantastic airline. I cannot say the same for U N T I E D Airlines. Alot of people will agree that Airtran is probably much better than UNTIED.

Chances are N766UA has not ever flown AIRTRAN AIRWAYS. He is just judging them because he is a little 14 year old who thinks he knows more about them than someone who has flown them does.

N7766UA: What the hell are you talking about? AirTran? I have never flown with United or AirTran, but price wise, I can tell you that I'd take their $38.00 round trip fares into Midway over United's $485.00 to O'Hare anyday!

Although they are no longer flying, my vote goes to Tower Air. I've never flown them, but I never saw ONE positive report on them here, nor any other airline site.

Air Canada.

Their service isn't too bad, but their skyrocket fares and predatory tactics don't sit too well with me.

Even though Philippine Airlines pretty much has a monopoly on air travel in the Philippines, a lot of people still don't like their service and their overall culture of how they do things. But of course, no one can really complain. What else are the people going to fly?

I wouldn't say AirTran is the best airline based on two trips with them... I could take two, even three or four of my trips with AA and say they are the worst airline on the planet (well, American Eagle was responsible for three of those rather interesting trip interruptions/cancellations/changes and misplacing luggage) but actually AA is the carrier I prefer to fly with.

I could take my two flights with AeroMexico that went perfect and claim them to be flawless, which isn't a fact.

My friend thought Southwest was the greatest thing on the planet until his trip home for Thanksgiving was ruined and thanks to two cancellations (one going, one coming) and Southwest's policy of not putting customers on other airlines (which is bad when the other WN flights are sold out). Good thing he has many other flights with them in the past to see they are overall a good carrier that just has its moments like the rest.

my vote for crappiest airline in Canada goes to Air Transat. The service is terrible, the meals inedible and the seat pitch horrible.

Watewate, your objections to Air Canada are multually exclusive. How can they skyrocket fares and undercut competition at the same time? Air Canada has excellent service, recognised world wide. I agree that their fares can be a bit high at times, but it really is the only way Air Canada can ever hope to recover from their current financial problem, since Collenette has prevented them from doing it any other way.

Cuntinental Airlines.

Not a bad airline, I just like all other US carriers better. They seem to have fallen from grace more than the others. There fleet is boring, there livery is boring, there service is dull and even there hub cities are boring.
What a boring airline.

The worst US airline I flew was Rich International. Service? What service? Service on my LGW to JFK flight consisted of a stewardess commanding passengers to lower their window shades, presumably so everyone would go to sleep. Indeed, meal service (a single cold sandwich) was given as the plane started its descent. Pass me an airsickness bag!

Fanofjets...

I may be mistaken, but I heard from someone that Rich International Airlines is named for the same guy whose name adorns Rich Stadium in Buffalo, home of the 2-11 Bills. So basically, you flew on a 2-11 airline.

in my limited experience United is the worst US carrier, my wife went to Texas from Boise and every flight of hers was late causing her to miss 1, I wouldnt have been quite so irritated if she wasnt pregnant while running across airports to catch flights its also pretty pathetic for your flights to be late in and out of Boise where there isnt much traffic, here its taxi right out to the runway and when you land taxi right to the gate no waiting, straight in.
