  1. Second-worst: America West.

    I can honestly say that I prefer Ryanair to American.

  2. Hold on. Air Transat is the worst. The. Worst.

  4. Clearly Mr. Vizquel has never flown Delta.

  5. I have only flown — and will only ever fly — Air Canada.

  6. Geez Navin, you really should give Porter a try. Much more accessible, free food and drink in the lounge and on the plane, and less expensive to boot

  7. Flying Porter is on my bucket list.

  8. When was the last time you flew America West? Obviously prior to 2005…

  9. …it was indeed prior to 2005.

  10. Indeed. Last time I flew with them, they wouldn’t give me a seat assignment until I was basically boarding the plane. Steps:

    1. Online checkin many hours earlier: No seat assigned
    2. Ticket Agent’s take: “Oh, sometimes it just does that. You’ll need to get one at the gate.”
    3. At the gate: No personnel present (30 minutes to takeoff, 10 min to boarding)
    4. Call the rep using the courtesy phone: “Oh, we don’t have any power to give you a seat. Only a person at the gate can.”
    5. Person at the gate finally shows up, starts pre-boarding…
    6. Finally get a seat assigned… on a 1/4 empty plane. WTF?

    The irony? Even with those issues, it was still the best Delta flight I’ve been on in 8 years because it wasn’t canceled, exceptionally late, or an “equipment change” (e.g. where the airline decides to bump all the continuing passengers by changing planes during a stopover on a flight that was supposed to continue on to your destination).

    By comparison, American occasionally stranding me overnight in moderately attractive cities (LA, Chicago, Miami, etc) starts to look like a good deal. Omar should count his blessings.
