What was your worst flight? And What is your least favorite Airline?

My least favorite airline is AmericaWest. Because they stuck me at Phx for te HOLE day. I was watting for my flight to cos and they kept saying that the plane will be there in 30 minutes. But as it turns out There was NO plane.

I think they should keep spares in case

My least favorite airlines out of the ones that I have personally flown would probably be SAS or Southwest. My worst flight was once on Finnair, which is an excellent airline though, from HEL to SFO. They switched a 350-seat MD-11 for that flight instead of the 400-seat MD-11 they were supposed to use, because it had technical difficulty, so they reassigned people their seats and I didn't get a window seat as had previously been arranged. But I bet the flight was even worse for those 50 people who couldn't fit in. :)

My worst airline flight was a couple of weeks ago on a United Express J41. The seats were too small for armrests. If they had them, only children 8 and under could fit into the seats. Why does the flying public put up with this? I never fly on these aircraft willingly. I only flew on that one because my 737-200 flight was cancelled and I had to make a connection to begin a six-day vacation. If it had been the last flight on my return trip, I would have refused it.

Worst Flight Airline -Pan Am

There has been much sobbing over the disappearance of the old Pan Am,
but my general experience with them was really spotty. Their main problem was obnoxious, snotty employees. Not sorry to see them go.
CV990, the Maserati of the skies!

Worst airline in my case is DELTA. Flying from NY-IAH via Atlanta,
the flight in Atlanta was cancelled, without notice!!! There was no
plane on the gate, no airline officials, and just a bunch of confused
passengers. We were rerouted to IAH, and of course when we
got there our bags didn't make the reroute, and the guy taking
the complaints had to be the biggest s***head I had seen (in
fact I made a personal complaint against him).

I've flown on 9V-SPK.

It has to be TWA. In the summer of 96 i flew SFO-JFK-BCN and then MAD-JFK-SFO. On the SFO/JFK/SFO legs BOTH WAYS the scheduled 747 was inexplicably switched to an L-1011. However, the ground crews at both SFO and JFK were not aware of this fact and consequently gave boarding passes for the 747! What ensued was a nightmare...people boarding the plane with seat numbers that didn't exist. All the while, all F/As were screaming "just grab a seat ... any open we can leave!"

My worst flight was on American Airlines flight 1669 from Chicago to New orleans in June. I was on a 727-200 and I sat in the first row of coach. Directly behind first class. I was squashed into
those tiny seats between two people. I would rather sit in a window seat. I think the Boeing 727 should have 3 seats on one side and 2 on the other like the MD-80. I do like American Airlines
though. I think they have pretty good service.
