Pick An Airline!

Sat Jan 31, 2009 1:30 am

Pick an airline (preferably a US airline, but doesn't have to be) and rate it 1-10 from the following
Cleanliness-
Crew/Staff-
Fleet-
Hubs/Major Airports-
.........................................................................................................................................
You can pick your favorite airline, or your least favorite, or just one that you randomly come up with.

I would think the BA staff would do a bit better than a 60%, but I haven't flown them much. (Last time I flew with them was 6 months ago)

Air Canada

Cleanliness- 8/10 Travel AC frequently and I hardly ever have an issue
Crew/Staff- 8/10 I know some people disagree - but I have to say I have been really happy with the AC staff members
Fleet- Was a 10/10 but now with the demise of the 343 (and before that the 744) an 8/10
Hubs/Major Airports- 7.5/10 (I wish they had some more flying out of YVR)

West Jet

Cleanliness - 5/10 (food wrappers in the seat pouch)
Crew/Staff - 5/10 (I do not like the WS unprofessional attitude. Althought it is a small step, I am happy they are not calling them Capt. Smith and F/O Doe vs what they used to call them Capt. John and F/O Jane)
Fleet - 3/10 Ok so they are new (in contrast to the 732s and what not, but can someone say ZZZZZZZ)
Hubs/Major Airports 6/10 T
Keep the shinny side up!

Yes, they usually do (around 8-9) but my last two flights with BA has been really poor. I dont know, maybe just bad luck with crew those two times. But they were really bad.
