How Is Vanguard?

I am considering booking a flight to LAX this summer via MSY on Vanguard. How is Vanguard? Inflight Service, Crews, Schedules, Aircraft, etc?

If Vanguard has their MD-80's in service by then, you will probably fly on that. If not, then it will be the 737-200 and you will have to stop in Kansas City. When I took Vanguard, the plane I flew on (737-300) had a dirty interior and the air conditioning system did not work very well. The F/A's and pilots are nice, though. You will probably not get too much food. My uncle took a flight from MCI to LAX a couple of months back and they served him some type of tuna salad that smelled the plane up. He said it was awful. My suggestion is if you are going to take Vanguard, do it on a short hop only.

Hello! I would definately give Vanguard the pleaseure of your business! Recently there management changed to a much more omcpetent set of people up top. There operations are becoming more reliable and there service is imporving as well. After 6 years of bad management Vanguard is definately making some good moves, and winning back passengers as well as gaining them is a high priority for them, they would love your business and they do have wonderful staff unlike the ones at themajors, delta, american, northwest. not the nicest people there!
Why would God make us all so different, if He wanted us to be the same?

For Co Lite:

If ya happen to be in the New Orleans area, feel freet o look me up via e-mail. If interested, I will be more than happy to give you a nice stay as long as you want ramp-tour. You'll be so close, ya might as well be throwing bags yourself. Bring lots of film.
