    I fly Delta often. They’re just as decent as everyone else but when they screw up, they reimburse you for it either through miles of gift cards. Sign up for their Skymiles program, and if they screw up — be sure to tell them.

    Is JetBlue an option for you? I’m not sure where you’re from, but from the east coast Jet Blue is usually the cheapest option.

    @Earlybride:  I persopnally like united because their miles scheme works for us (I am from NZ, and can get miles on united for flights home – fly home twice = free trip to Alaska from Ohio!). I have found them to be on time, reliable and with good service.

     

    FI prefers Delta though – aolthough, thanks to miles for trips to NZ, I hvae converted him to the dark side!

    The ones you mentioned are pretty much all the major carriers that I personally don’t really find any difference with.  I’ve experienced delays on all of them before, none of them serve food, they all charge for check in bags.  The only one there I would not fly is US Air cause they wouldn’t let me fly stand on an earlier flight for free (which I’ve done on American for free).  They charged me $75 bucks to get on an earlier flight because they said seats were available for sale.  I just always go by who has the best fare.  But if it’s neck and neck, I got with United since that’s just where I have all my miles.

    I personally have not had the best experiences with United. The one time I can remember flying with them recently it was a nightmare at the gate. I have had positive experiences with both Delta and American Airlines.

    I’ve been on probably about 50 flights over the past 2 years, and the only one that had an awful delay was Delta.  My coworker who also flew Delta the week before me said his flight was delayed too.  But that was just once out of maybe 10 or so Delta flights.  The others, mostly United and Southwest all had no problems.

    United lost all my luggage when I flew from Las Vegas to Providence, RI. I’m pretty sure the girl at the counter didn’t tag it correctly. I complained and they didn’t do ANYTHING. I was stuck in Rhode Island with no money and the clothes on my back Yell

    The only other one of those I few was Delta, all the way from Toronto to Los Angeles, and they were fine.

    I like Delta because their seats are pretty comfortable, and they have good service, though I think they tend to be slightly more expensive.

    I would definitly NOT fly with US Air…. I went on a trip with a few friends and flew with them a few years ago. They lost mine and 5 other people’s luggage at the connecting flight (I discovered the other people at the complaint desk at our destination, and I didn’t get my luggage sent back to me for nearly THREE MONTHS). They also were running so late that my friend (who had to go home a few days early) missed her connecting flight, and was stuck waiting at the airport for TWO WHOLE DAYS before they were able to get her another flight. So please, for your sake, DON’T FLY WITH US AIR.

    But yeah, Delta is good in my experience. Southwest is also pretty good and low-key, if that does end up being an option. 🙂

    The only one of those that I haven’t flown is American.

    United has caused a lot of problems on our flights previously but we used them to go to Europe this spring and had no problems at all.

    I fly United all the time. I don’t hate them.  I also don’t blame airlines for most delays.

    I’m a JetBlue girl 10000%

    But I have to use Delta quite a bit and they’re pretty good.

    I fly a LOT.  Of those listed, I prefer United and American because I can usually get the lowest fares and best schedules with them.

    In all honesty though most major airlines are fine–just look to see that a given flight is actually operated by that airline and not being flown by a regional carrier in actuality.  I really try to avoid the regional ones and find that if there is an issue they are harder to deal with.

    Most delays are completely out of the airliners’ control.

    I use Delta to fly between Minneapolis and Milwaukee pretty frequently. My FI and I have both used AirTran just once and it was horrible compared to Delta. Delta is pretty organized and my flight almost always lands early. AirTran seriously took longer to load passengers and stow luggage than the flight took >.<
