Please Help, 4 Short Questions On Your Last Flight

coachsleeper (no a.net) wrote (flyertalk.com), also on general aviation forum

Next Tuesday I have to give a short research presentation. I would greatly appreciated if you could fill in the next 4 short questions. I will summarize & discuss the results next Wednesday Nov 6th on a separate threads

Highly Appreciated !!

When choosing an airline a lot of things play a role such as memory’s on your last flight

I. How long ago was your most recent flight ?

II. How do you rate last your flight with this airline ?
- great !
- good.
- hmmm …
- disappointing ..

III. Thinking back, what details you remember on this flight that stood out most positively or negative ?

IV. Would the things you just remembered make you select or avoid this airline next time ? (that is if you have a choice …
- Yes, I would even spend some (well, max. $20) extra to get them again / avoid them !
- Not sure, other things are more important
- I probably won’t remember it at the moment I have to choose ..
- No, because …

1. EWR-BHX-EWR Oct. 3 and Oct. 31

2. Good on EWR-BHX, Great on BHX-EWR

3. The equipment, 757-200, a narrowbody on such a long flight

4. No, each flight is different and the equipment is only one factor out of many involved in booking flights (plus I did not have control over the travel arrangements for this trip, otherwise I would not have picked this specific flight)

1. Swiss, DXB-IAD-AUH via ZRH, Jul 28/Sep 1

2. Great.

3. The food was absolutely delicious--best I've ever had on a plane; all flights
on time. On the negative side: long connecting times at ZRH (and ZRH, to
me, isn't the best place in the world to be stuck in for 4+ hours); awful
seat pitch and narrow seats; stopping in RUH for an hour.

4. Yes: overall great product--and great price for it, too.

BA Citiexpress LPL - IOM on a Bae ATP

1. 25 mins there and 30 mins back.

2. Good.

3. The bad things were that there was heavy turbulence descending into Liverpool and there was a 1 hour delay because there was 'airport congestion' at IOM (we were only 1 of 2 planes there!)

4. Yes. I prefer it to the Ferry.

1.21st October 2002 on a Ryanair 737-800 STN - Venice Treviso - STN

2.Good

3.Positive - the fare (1 pence each way + tax)!
Negative - the lack of any warmth from the cabin crew, somehow you
expect that from an Irish airline.

4.If the same or similar fares were offered again, of course, but as I live in the
NW of England, Stansted is a hell of a drive, especially for a day trip!!

1. 9th September, Garuda Pekanbaru - Jakarta, B734
2. Excellent
3. Plane looked like it needed repainting. Crew was excellently friendly, efficient and caring.
4. No. My company policy at the moment for domestic flight is Garuda first choice. But even if I pay for it myself, I'd take them... though my curiousity of trying different airlines could get the better of me sometimes.

1. It was in January - Usairways

2. It was good

3. It was a flight from Baltimore to Boston, and they did not have any snacks on the flight. I was fine with that because it was a short flight. However the F/A was upset at that.

4. Yes I would fly them again. The staff on the groung and the crew, all were very nice. Plus I appreciated the fact that the F/A really cared that we did not have any snacks.

With pleasure!

1) Oct 11/14, AC8442/AC8401, YYC-YMM/YMM-YEG-YYC

2) I'd rate both flights as great. I like the aircraft type flown (Dash 8), the weather was supurb and the service was courteous and offered by people who understand the regional traveller.

3) Very personable interactions with the flight attendant both ways.

4) Possibly. This same friendly service is also offered by WestJet. Price is my main consideration. If the price is the same or comparable, then I choose by schedule, followed by aircraft type.

2) Good

4) I will choose again LH in the future mainly to collect Miles&More awards.

I- EZY BCN-LGW-BCN (26/07 - 28/07)

II- Good

III- Funny and friendly crew, quite timely, not as cheap as expected (120€ )

IV- I could travel with BA or KLM for the same prize, but they had no tickets left.

1) VLC-MAD-AMS-MAD-VLC , all in Iberia last March.
2) Good.
3) No special details. Flown so much with IB, no longer find surprises.
4) Yes. Mainly because of IB Plus (FF program), and efficient service.

I flew Jul 14/Jul 17 SW MHT-BWI-MHT
My feeling about this flight was hmmm........
III. The service was terrible......... as was the arrogance of the check-in agents. And the planes were pretty old. (732/735 (was pretty good)
IIII. I would avoid SW because of the terrible service, but, they took over the routewhen MetroJet became defunct.
What now?

1.) November 3, 2002; Delta Air Lines; DCA-JFK-ATL-JAX
2.) Coach is typical. Business Elite had excellent seat pitch, decent enough meal. Pleasant crews all around.
3.) Near-flat of the BizElite seat stood out, allowing me to sleep soundly.
4.) If the fare was competitive, I'd fly Delta again but would rather fly AA for frequent flyer reasons.

1) August 18th 2002. ORD-LHR. United Airlines, 777-222. seat 24C.
2) Good. Was a last minute switch as I had missed my BD connection to Manchester. Staff at ORD were excellent and helpful in re-routing me to LHR.
3) Positive - Ecomony Plus (first time in that section).
4) Yes, would fly them again, in fact have just spent £10 more for the next trip to ensure UA and Economy + and Mileage Plus. I also find UA's customer service excellent.

Hope your report goes well.
cheers, Phil.

I:
October 27, 2002 US Airways BOS-CLT-JAX

II:
Good, nothing fantastic... Uneventful

III:
Excellent cabin crew
Nice bulkhead seat for legs

IV:
I fly the airline mainly because it's convenient for me and I have mileage with them and I have flown it my entire life. Fares are generally good and crew all around is usually great. But if an airline with a better fare comes along that's at least $20 cheaper, I'll fly them.

1.- 10 days ago (monday 28th October) MAD-SVO Aeroflot SU 300. TU 154M
2.- Worse than disappointing
3.- Positively - We flew 4 hours instead of the usual 5
Negatively - Got the TU instead of the usual B737 or A310
- Was seated in the last row next to the engines
- Had to change seats to accommodate 4 handcuffed passengers.
- Got a seat in the midst of the Russian national rugby team (no joke).
4.- I would fly them again anyway. Return ticket was 299 $ for a direct flight compared to the 450 $ minimum with any other European carrier and one connection.
