When choosing an airline a lot of things play a role such as memory’s on your last flight
I. How long ago was your most recent flight ?
About 13 months ago (1yr 1mths ago)
II. How do you rate last your flight with this airline ?
- great !
- hmmm …
- disappointing ..
As an enthusiast for aviation, the experience of my flight on a 50 seater airplane was great!
. (Probably because I was an enthusiast that has never been on a regional jet before and interior was very spacious for a 5ft-5in guy like me--see below for more.)
III. Thinking back, what details you remember on this flight that stood out most positively or negative?
Oh my goodness, this one changed my experience towards riding on airplanes:
This stewardess was so funny and was enthusiastic towards her passengers: She first introduced herself, gave us briefing about the details of our flight, then showed us proper in-flight briefing and emergency procedures. Then, before the jet pushes back, she kinda "refreshes" us for the trip by saying:
"Is everybody ready to go to Colorado Springs?"
"I can't hear you, is EVERYBODY ready to go to Colorado Springs??"
(enthusiastic passengers cheering)
She also joked about how we're going to have roast turkey as in-flight lunch on this one hour flight, then telling us that we're only having peanuts and soft-drinks
On our return flight however (6 AM), although another ethnic steward on-board did his normal procedures in a humble manner, I think the cabin of the regional jet deserved to be a little quiet for that flight because it was an early morning winter flight and everyone wanted some shuteye.
IV. Would the things you just remembered make you select or avoid this airline next time ? (that is if you have a choice …
- Yes, I would even spend some (well, max. $20) extra to get them again / avoid them !
- Not sure, other things are more important
- I probably won’t remember it at the moment I have to choose ..
- No, because …
Umn...I would say, between Yes I would
and Not sure, other things are more important
In other words, the answer combined is : Yes I would -- considering if I had the time.
P.S.: I rode on America West Express, Canadair Regional Jet CRJ-200, roundtrip, HP6410 and HP 64??, 1h45min duration, and as for the encounter with the "enthusiastic" stewardess, I think this only happens once in your (flights) lifetime. All other air-hostesses are probably just doing everything as they're told to (which is fine with me too).
