1st A. Worst Major Airline SA: R1 - NAmerica+Carib

Sat Dec 10, 2005 6:32 am

Rules again:

1/ 8-16 major airlines in the continent are chosen. Strictly LCCs are excluded and so are pure regionals. If you want, you can PM me your choice.
2/ Voting is based on play-offs. Each member gets one point and based on final points, the worse airline moves on.
3/ You're chosing the overall product of the airline - since most of us travel economy, a weighted average would automatically work out. Again, you're choosing the WORST overall airline to you based on (lack of) service.

Ok, here is the random drawing for the first regional competition:

2/ Air Canada vs. Southwest

 Confused Isn't SW a LCC? Can't really compare a global player with one that stays within it's borders. Sorry, don't mean to nit pick, but that just kind of confuses me.

Well Southwest are the largest, most famous and generally regarded as the model for all LCCs - so why are they there then ?

And the same goes for AirTran - also an LCC.

And Alaska and ATA should be consdiered regionals - they don't fly beyond US, Mexico and Canada.
