but on the other hand they have a horrible reputation for reliability (not safety...dispatch reliability).
Can I get your source on this please? Any MD
-80 I've ever flown has been a wonderful airplane. Like other aircraft, the MD80 WILL have problems arise every so often. The crew did the right thing, turned around, and got you to your destination, which is what they were responsible for doing. Nowhere does it say what time you WILL get there, only when you SHOULD. Are you saying that if you broke down on the side of the road in your car, you would be pissed with the car manufacturer for getting you there 15 hours later. Would you have rather gotten to your destination, only to find out that the gear would not work, and you would have landed belly up?
Dude, that is one of the worst statements I have ever read. I have flown YX
TWICE, and each flight was a wonderful flight. The planes were really nice, and the crew was great. While I disagree with the actions of the crew on this particular flight, I do not think it is fair for you to call YX
a "Low Standard Carrier". Especially basing that you've probably never flown them, and you probably have not done all that much research on their history.
