CO of course, just because I love their service, and they have so many flights out of EWR. CO all the way.

Of course, you probably knew that already.  Wink

American, United, Delta, Or Co?

Wed Apr 13, 2005 9:38 am

United first(only because they are star alliance)then CO, DL, and AA.
From all the pics I have seen, from the seats I couldn't see any major differences, I would pick CO as second because of the relatively modern fleet over the Atlantic (Mix. of mainly 777's and 764, and some 752 and 762"s) but I would say that AA is at the bottom, because it seems like people don't get a lot to eat on AA, especially in coach(atleast compared to Asian carriers) where you get a complimentary full meal on flights of over 1hr 30 min., and a snack such a sandwich on flights under 1hr 30min., that's atleast how it is on SQ.
Do AA, CO, DL and UA all sell food for money on flights from east to west coast/west to east coast or is it still complimentary?

Cheers, Konstantin G.

I've never been on CO or AA. I have been on DL twice, and UA 8 times, so I'd have to say UA because their product is a bit better then DL.

What is Co? Garri767 -- you have NO respect for Continental?  Smile Why did I say that? You did not spell out C O N T I N E N T A L, just "Co" in your topic heading (you did spell out other 3 airlines)

Never flown CO or UA. But if I have to choose between them, I would choose DL, UA or CO just to avoid terrible chaotic tyranic and rude MIA.

Nice fleet, great destinations, Star Alliance, And the friendliest people in the sky. Too bad that they Tedified TPA, and I always have to take "him" to ORD.

Second is CO, then DL, followed by AA.

If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

UA on their JFK-LAX/SFO routes do offer complimentary meals on all classes, as well as power ports, and I think buy on board snacks now for other flights. I think also the meals are complimentary to Hawaii.
AA only has Buy On Board for all domestic flights in coach, pretty ridiculous, for a flight like ORD-HNL, which is longer than ORD-LHR.

Continental serves free meals on all flights so long as its mealtime. However, on most non-redeye flights over 3 hours, there is a meal snack, which is usually a hot/cold sandwich with a bag of chips and dessert (sometimes fruit, too) for lunch/dinner and cereal and a muffin/banana for breakfast. Any food Continental serves is free! And with the exception of what they call a "cheesesteak", most of it is pretty edible.

First, thanks for the reply Daron4000.
Truly amazing, over 5 hours of flying time WITHOUT A FREE MEAL.
Basically it means that people are forced to buy a meal.
Lucky here in Asia we still get complimentary food on all flights, except LCC.
Well don CO for still serving free meals.

Cheers, Konstantin G.

I have to go with skyteam, so it would be CO or DL, and it would depend on the connecting hub.

If I could go through CLE, I'd pick CO

If I could go through CVG or SLC, I'd pick DL

I would definately avoid ATL and IAH

United still serves meals to all classes of passengers on flights over five hours. On semi-long flights (3-5 hours), a snack box is served, of which my last one consisted of a turkey sandwich (it was okay, nothing extraordinary, but good), a bag of "sun chips", and a bag of M & M's.

I have only flown CO once, but the service was quite good. Even on an overnight flight (SAN-EWR), we were still served a sandwich and chips. The morning connecting flight (EWR-ATL) had a large muffin and a yoplait.

Having said all that, United is my first choice, and Continental is a close second. It all depends on if I can get on a wide-body for a connecting flight.

Here would be my choices:

1) United
2) Tie - Continental and America West (HP is great for us here in the west!!)

Then everybody else. No bad experiences on other airlines, just nothing to separate them from other airlines.

United United United! For one they offer the best choice of flights in my markets (HNL-US West coast/rockies), and for another I am adicted to ch. 9! Oh yeah, and they have never ever given me crappy service. The next best choice for me would be Delta, since the others don't serve all the cities I need, but the only good thing about delta is the big windows on the 764. CO is the only choice when I fly to GUM (unless I can sweet talk the boss into letting me take UA to NRT and connecting to GUM on NH). The service on those air mike runs is extremely nice so I would give strong consideration to CO if I was flying somewhere they fly.

Sort of hard to choose, since the US majors differ so much domestically compared to internationally. AA or DL for international, UA and CO for domestic flights.

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

It really also depends on where you fly out of most of the time. If you live near EWR, it's essentially a no-brainer. Unless you want to make a connection everywhere you go, CO is basically your only option for nonstops to the large majority of cities.

Now, on the other hand, if you lived in ATL, you'd be stupid to fly with anyone but DL, as once again, you'd have to make a connection every time you flew.

It really depends.

Now calling everything else equal, I would venture to say that CO probably has the best and most consistent service, and they're still the only major left that has not resorted to Buy-on-Board and still serves meals for free.

CO has the best business class seating. 2-2-2 on the 777 (2-3-2 on UA & AA), and 2-1-2 on the 767 (2-2-2 UA, AA, & DL). I've never flown in a premium section, but I would still choose CO and hope for the best. heh

In Order from Best to Worst:

DL - always great employees, on time, no nonsense, nicest and easiest hubs of the group
UA - best coach seats, ok staff, lots of delays, Skywest EM2's suck!
AA - usually rude/indifferent, DFW sux, ORD sux, MD 80's are old with no IFE, etc.
CO - the least comfortable seats of the bunch, sardine-can planes, poor hub locations

Continental is my favorite from the bunch. But, I have not been on a long-haul flight, so I don't really know who is actually the best for seat pitch, meals, aircraft condition, ect........ I am usually so enamored by the fact that I am in the air that I don't pry my face away from the window!
