The three largest carriers in the Austin market are WN
, and AA
. I agree with the ideas of WN
(though I don't know what CO
rewards are like to deal with).
, frequency is key and there is plenty of that. Also, you are more likely to have direct flights.
, frequency is also very good, though you do fly through IAH
. Flights from AUS
usually arrive at the new terminal E and that is a pleasant experience with a nice layout, fresh interior, awesome windows, and great food choice.
I would be more hesitant about AA
. Most business travelers (that are not going to NYC) fly AA
and I imagine they have the upgrades locked up on the Mad Dogs. Also, just like with CO
, 99% of their flights are through DFW
. I work for a limo company and we almost ALWAYS take our corporate clients to the AA
stand. We take them to CO
only if they are going to EWR
Glad to see people still moving into Austin...hope you like sitting in traffic though. Its truly a great place to live with lots of things to do...drop me a line if you need any help or have any questions...I have lived here most of my life (with lapses here and there.)
