Jet Blue. I love their service and their blue chips.

For international fight, I love Japan Air. They have good green tea and service.

For international flights, Emirates is the BEST. I flew to Italy with them last year and it was AMAZING. Soooo much free food (and free wine, beer, champagne, liqour) even in coach. They also have huge tvs with a ton of movies and stuff…even more than the other airlines I’ve flown. It was just such an awesome experience!

For flights within the US, I love Delta and American. United can be good or bad depending.

topeonyornottopeony:  That’s right! I forgot about the app. With that, I pretty much did away with any paper tickets. I love using my phone to scan through. Makes boarding so much faster.

Well, my best experience was on Alaska Airlines, but I’ve only taken a single round-trip flight with them. I’ve had good experiences with Delta.

United is the only airline that offered non-stops between my husband and I while we were dating and engaged – so I’ve flown round trips with them 10+ times. I’ve had two bad experiences with United, but they both seemed to be related to individual staff members as opposed to any sort of airline policy. Once, I was intentionally bumped off a flight to Iowa before the caucuses (I’m persuming because they wanted to get someone they deemed “important” on the flight… and I wasn’t the only one it happened to), and the other time was when a flight attendent got an attitude with me when I asked her where my bag was. You know… the bag I gave you at the beginning of the flight when you said to hand off any luggage that wasn’t fitting to you…?

The company tried to make the situation right in both circumstances by throwing me some discounts on my next flight, since I have so much mileage with them. And in both circumstances I had an equally nice United employee who comforted me and tried to help.

My worst experiences, by far, have been with Frontier. Every time there was an issue… every time.

Let’s put it this way–I pay extra NOT to fly United.

American–I had terrible customer service when stuff was stolen out of my carry on. I just got reimbursed over 3 months later. 

I like Southwest’s on time record and customer service but wish they’d do away with the cattle call seating. 

Delta – no complaints.

Virgin and delta good, American Airlines is the worst (they not only cancel flights but you can be at the airport for 24 hours stuck from a canceled flight with no vouchers, they don’t let you call for customer service anymore– they are a nightmare) and after American, United is crap. 

Note: American was much better before the merger last fall. So if you had a good experience before that, it wouldn’t surprise me. Now they’re so big the number of complaints with the government are a bit frightening.

Virgin is great!  I’ve always found great prices from them, the planes are pretty new and nice, when there are delays or cancellations they’re amazing at rebooking really quickly.

I’ve also had good experiences on JetBlue.

I stay away from the no-frills airlines: Southwest, Spirit, AirTran, and Frontier. There are probably a few more, but whatevs. 

My favorite is Delta. When we lived in the East Coast, it was a great way to get everywhere. Now that our companies’ preferred airline is United, I’m Platinum with them but there’s never a terrible moment.

I fly United all the time- Domestic and International and have never had issues. I also fly Southwest frequently but would not pay an $800 premium to fly them. Virgin America is the best airline I have flown in the US and I avoid American like the plague (delayed luggage and cancelled flights.)

JetBlue hands down, I always have the best experience with them and they have the most leg room. Recently, despite 2 neon colored bag tags another passenger took my bag home with her by accident and left hers (we had the same purple bag, same exact model, go figure). They tracked her down and gave me a $50.00 credit toward my next flight even though it wasn’t their fault that it happened. Talk about great customer service. 

I’m also a fan of Delta/virgin Atlantic for international flights, theyve always had the best food and entertainment IMO. I fly both often as I’m doing grad school abroad with a fiancé that lives back at home.
