Freedom "friggin" airlines....what a pathetic operation!!!!!!
Freedom took over the MCO-DFW route from Chautauqua Air and with their ERJ aircraft this month...OMG!!!! I suggest Delta not even offer this route
or any other route with this Freedom Air.
They continue to have to make a fuel stop somewhere in route from MCO to DFW. Today, 6123 took off from MCO...diverted to PNS for fuel..usually they have been diverting to BTR....then they take off from PNS for DFW, well of course DFW is getting slammed with Severe weather...okay thats understandable...even the "mainline" flights for AA, DL and others coming to DFW diverted...but 6123 diverts to AUS...refuels...takes off for DFW for a 2nd attempt...nope...they didn't put enough fuel for possible hold time for weather at DFW...they divert again....back to AUS for more fuel...but now crew is out of time...they cancel the flight. Freedom puts the customers on a bus on I-35 up to DFW.
Freedom flight 6124....MCO-DFW....can't make the trip nonstop...they to divert to IAH...
Friday they diverted, Saturday they diverted, Sunday both flights diverted....
and the really bad part is...these stations where Freedom diverts to do not have the capabilities to dump the lavs, planes do not have a/c stairs...so if the station doesn't have a jetway or portable stairs....they are screwed!
Bottom line, Freedom Air's operation is pathetic, reliability pathetic and they are not helping Delta Air Lines with this type of service.
Delta needs to get rid of all this crap with the RJ's flying long distances with no dependability! I would never chose to fly Delta a.k.a "Connection Carrier" if there were any other airline offering a mainline aircraft!
It was a rough night at DFW and this just makes it worse!
