Worst and best airline company?
Tell me your experience
Honestly never really had bad experience with any airline and I use budget and non budget airlines. ok maybe the worst thing is parents with todders who scream the entire fligt, this is more prevalent with budget but also happen regularly with non budget (obviously business and first class probably don't have this problem but how would I know)
The good thing about first class, and I’d argue the reason most people get it, even over the better seats and free drinks etc, is that though it doesn’t get rid of problem people, it priced out the vast majority of them. Less kids, less brown people, less obnoxious people in general. If you do see kids it’s highly likely they will be well behaved if just for the reason that mom and dad didn’t shell out 10k to listen to their own little brats annoy them. One time I saw a group of blacks get on first class and I was like son of a bitch. Turned out it was bone thugs and harmoney, they just listened to music and drank grape juice. Sadly that’s perhaps the best use of money in this world, pricing out garbage people from your life. It’s not so much about having the nice things and places, it’s that awful people can’t afford those nice things, or be in those places. I dont like that that’s how it is by the way. Just the reality
I can only agree. And its not only first class, its also true for economy class on many legacy carriers. I used to fly with ryanair but I just cant take the high amount of crap people anymore. Buying tickets on Lufthansa, Swiss, SAS etc. in europe reduces the amount of morons and retards you encounter quite drastically (not as much as first class of course).
Unbeknownst to you, first class actually exists to isolate people like you from the rest of the population (and make you pay for it).
This is basically the only reason I fly on non-budget airliines or first/business class. The people that fly budget/economy are often trouble makers, etc.
You are 17 and have never been in Business or First Class and you browse 4chan
If you don’t think it’s possible to price out most shitty people you’ve never been anywhere nice or expensive at all. Never mind first class on a plane.
Can’t really comment on worst or best; but in relation to picrel; I genuinely, heart of hearts believe that they’re the best in the world just taking into account their fares.
I mean even now, I’m getting flights with Ryanair for $25. It’s not what it once was, I remember times where I’d fly return tickets across Europe for €20, significantly less than what it would cost to get the bus or train to the airport.
It’s a no-frills experience, don’t expect anything great, but it does what it says on the tin, which is get you from a-b.
Great thing about Ryanair too, I used to work in the aviation industry in Europe. Dealing with a lot of bigger legacy carriers, a technical issue, or something along those lines would normally result in passengers stranded for hours, sometimes overnight for the next possible flight or just an outright cancellation for days. Ryanair always had another plane to go within a couple of hours tops and I haven’t once witnessed anything otherwise.
i recently bought ryanair december tickets to uk, it costed me ~250$ in both directions. Is this normal price now or i suck at buying tickets?
No, december is holiday season and prices go up? Is 250 including all the additional fees, extras, baggage etc or is it just the fare?
Thing i dont understand why i paid like 30% more comparing with what i would pay if i bought tickets today - ryanair too, same airports, same dates, same everything
Its a last minute thing, if they still have seats close to the time of flight they will lower the prices hoping they can sell those seats, mind you this is not guaranteed to happen everytime for everyflight
>I genuinely, heart of hearts believe that they’re the best in the world just taking into account their fares.
This, I basically see taking a plane like taking a bus, I don't need anything special I just need to get from a to b for as cheap as possible
Ryanair does this for me and so in my mind they're the best airline
Plane was 5 hours delayed, then eventually they stuck on some placeholder aircraft that wasn't designed for transatlantic journeys. 9 hour flight with no TVs, no food AT ALL and was freezing to death. This was when I was a kid in the early 2000s so had nothing to do during the flight.
Spent the entire holiday dreading the flight back, luckily they used a suitable plane. So glad this shit company went out of business.
Worst: China Eastern, American, and United
Best: Singapore, JAL, and ANA
United is great, what are you on?
In terms of American based airline? Nah it sucks along with American. Shit staff last time I rode with them. Delta mogs the shit out of them
I have to second this. Loved Singapore airlines and ANA, always great service.
Least favorite was actually Emirates. Caught a few flights just fucking loaded with Indians and it was misery flying into Jeddah and Dubai.
From Dubai to Hong Kong, I ate a jollof rice with lamb meat, it was seriously good especially for airline food. The hostesses were very friendly and nice, the plane was massive and very comfortable chairs with lots of entertainment on the entertainment system from arabic music to movies. The 10 hours passed by very fast
Wizz Air. Bucharest to Warsaw. The plane did not even have carpeting, no drinks offered, could only pay for items with card, the hostesses tried to sell me shitty fake perfume and the pilot clearly could not deal with turbulence, ended up shaking the whole way. It just felt like a true communist poorfag experience.
Why did you expect anything for free from a budget airline? Wizzair is good to get from point a to point b as cheap and fast as possible, if you wanted anything more than that then you missed the point.
If you think wizz air is decent for budget flights you clearly did not travel alot
it's possible that you got one of the good ones, I am dead serious by the way, no carpeting, cold as shit even for a plane
>If you think wizz air is decent for budget flights you clearly did not travel alot
Got back from Jordan for 30 euros with Wizzair with a layover in Budapest, find me another airline that would get me home for that price
Wizz has some strategic routes that mean you can get from real far away back home for cheap, think you're the one who's not flying much
Not once had an issue with wizzair. Never really experienced any those things regarding poor state of airplane, in fact its surprising how clean and in perfect working order their airplanes are when they are in use/flying everyday. Also one time I missed my flight with wizzair (arrived at airport too late and they just moved me to later flight that day free of charge)
wizzair iceland to prague was the worst experience of my life. crammed into a metal tube like an animal with nothing to do. middle seat. dying would have been a welcome light in a 4 hour ride of darkness.
Before budget flights where a thing, this trip would either be:
b) a 2 month sailing expedition
c) a suicide run on a viking boat
d) 3 weeks of sailing and 3 months of travelling on foot and horse-drawn carriage across the continent.
I'd take the fucking metal tube discomfort any time of the week.
>fly non budget plane and be treated more or less like a human
>maybe even fly business/first if not poor
i always chuck a little when the stewardess on ryanair starts to sell you those stupid scrats tickets and its always some boomer buying them as well
Are you seething because you are poor?
not him but thanks for keeping my ryanair tickets cheap, boomer
United is good if flying Polaris class
United Amsterdam-Houston on Polaris (Got upgraded after volunteering to stay due to overbooking)
This was like 3-5 months after the incident with the doctor, so i guess they were on the line and actually had a damn good service, the food was great too
Prob. The only good Schengen flight while i was on Europe
Iberia, the textbook definition of bland
Vueling (Part of Iberia), somehow every damn time i've booked tickets with them, the cabin crew goes on strike
Spirit, by far. It was so bad, it should be illegal for these fuckers to even be allowed to operate anywhere.
Emirates, Cathay and JAL
Superior service, food and prices were pretty damn good.
I've never had any issues with Ryanair flights whatsoever. I don't care about comfort or eating while on a plane. They're cheap, they cover almost every route you can imagine and their policies are extremely fair. They're not very strict with overhead luggage either, so you can get away with being slightly over the limit.
I've always had bad experiences with Ryanair, the best thing that can happen when I flight with Ryanair is the extremely delay.
I've flown them close to twenty times now and I don't think I've ever had a significant delay or issues.
Best: Malaysian airlines, Sydney ->Malaysia, gave me unlimited gin&tonics for free, can't speak for the rest of the experience
Worst: Air Asia London -> KL, imagine a Ryanair flight that lasts eight hours or so, I don't think they fly this route anymore
Malaysia airlines was the tits when I went to KL from London. Air steward gave me a free sandwich since I was the only passenger who couldn’t sleep
BA flight from Vegas last Friday.
Took off 2 1/2 hours late. Food was almost inedible, even by airline standards (never identified the pot of completely flavourless red things). Landed, was stuck outside the gate for an hour as they hadn't organised someone to extend the walkway. The irony is the air stewards told people with connections to move to any spare forward seats so they could get off the plane quickly (one idiot decided to move seats about 30 seconds from landing which made the stewards scream at him) . All those people (60 we were told) missed their connection.
To make things worse, took 2 hours for the plane's baggage to arrive because of a fuckup with the handling. Fuck British Airways, raised a compensation claim, not expecting to get anything as they'll shift blame to the airport (despite the flight being hours late every day for the last few weeks).
Virgin Atlantic have always been mediocre for me, tiny seats, screaming kids, rude stewards but they're ultra consistent at least, never had a really bad experience with them that wasn't due to turbulence or other passengers.
Are you mentally ill? What is an airline meant to do about that
Some airlines market more to kids and families than other so you get noisier flights with them.
literally no one buys flight tickets based on marketing you fucking autist.
Did you get shot in Vegas or stabbed in London? Lmao you people really are the worst
why people even discuss these things... just enter the plane and go, planes arent restaurants or cinemas...
>I've never traveled before, but I still browse the travel board to give people my uninformed opinion
Not them, but I've travelled a lot (in Europe) and I STILL do not give a fuck about the airline as long as it takes me to the destination and I don't fall out of the sky in a flaming casket of steel. Food on airplanes is shit anyways, so who cares? Just make a sandwich, it's 10x better than the quality you'll get on the plane. Only reason why I'd care is if I had some condition and I was more than uncomfortable for 18 hours.
The thing with food in airplanes, with non budget airlines you pay higher price and the food is included ("free"), with budget you pay lower price but have to pay for food on the flight, the food is more or less the same on both flights (short 3-4 hour flights), but budget airline actually gives an option to either buy food or not.
It's just the best deal.
When all the vaxxies were too afraid to fly during lockdowns i faked test certificates and flew from the UK to Sicily for £5 hahaha one of the best trips of my life
Kek. Antivax virgin larper from 4chan detected. Only antivaxxers were scared of traveling in the last two years. And still are. Vaxxed chads have been traveling normally since 2021.
I sure wasn't scared to travel moron. Damn right I am a pureblood virgin that did not invite in the whore of babylon. In the UK the opposite was true; all the vaxxies seethed about their cancelled holidays while i travelled europe for the price of a kebab
Same. Iceland 2020, Spain january 2022, Scandinavia spring 2021. Everywhere was empty as fuck and cheap as hell. It was possibly the best moment to travel in recent history.
Ironically I did more traveling during the pandemic than before. I'm still not vaxxed and damn was it a great time to explore the hell out of America and do a jillion road trips.
Anybody try the internet wifi on planes, especially ANA. I want to see if i can get some work done on my 6 hr flight
If your work involves watching video or video calling then it won't work.
THERE'S A CRYING KID
MY LIFE IS RUINED
no wonder why nobody likes you when you're such an overtly negative incel
Probably Turkish airlines. They give you meals even on short flights and they’re pretty nice
Idk it’ll this would be the worst, but it literally just happened to be so it left an impression:
Spring airlines on a domestic flight in Japan. I travel light and they made me check one of my bags. They limit is 7kg for carry on bags. It’s fucking insane
I hate that garbage carry on weight limit on some airlines, even 10kg is pretty bullshit when it’s across both carry ons. Like who actually brings two bags that weigh less than 20lbs together. My bag and laptop alone are 1/3 of that.
I feel like comfort+ is a rip off, I took that for my 7 hour flight from nyc to Italy and it didn’t really seem any bigger or more comfortable than normal
I won't use words like "best" and "worst" because there will obviously be a difference of opinion, and there are airlines I haven't tried yet.
Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, British Airways, Turkish Airlines, Qatar Airways
Air Canada, WestJet, Air India, China Southern, China Airlines
>Surprisingly okay for a budget airline
Air France First Class had better food than many high-class restaurants I've been to. Seven courses of delicious French food and as much fresh French bread (with the most delicious butter I've ever had) as you like. When you're not a plebian, they let you drink as much alcohol as you please. I probably downed ten bourbons and half as many glasses of wine before they landed. Best experience for luxury/alcoholics.
Spirit Airlines. Haven't had too many bad flights with them, but those fuckers left my family and me to die in a hurricane no shit. They literally went "The plane isn't full, but it's going anyways, its too dangerous" while plenty of other planes were still there. Ended up getting on the second-to-last plane. Fuck those cunts.
>Americunt only thread, Euros have better airlines and I'm assmad about it
My friend got upgraded to La Premiere from business for smaller fee than it would be to straight up book first class on AF website. Something to keep in mind.
If you fly alot for work and can rack up points/miles then Delta is great. Comfort+ is really good bang for your buck.
I remember that easyjet squeezed down the luggage allowance by 5cm so I had to buy a new hardcase.
Also jet2 cancelled a flight I was booked on because of "covid", while actually it was because enough of the vacation fags cancelled their package (I was visiting family not just going for tourism)
I hate all airliners now but I can't help but appreciate the utility provided by budget airlines.
Sure, no baggage allowed etc, but I can fly 2000 fucking km for 20 euros so fuck yes I'm going to be packed as tight as a transatlantic slave 2k years ago.
Air France business class had some really comfy seats and really amazing food. Probably my favorite for Trans Atlantic flights.
Never had an issue with Ryanair. Cheap as piss, A to B with no frills, which is perfect for short hops across Europe. The only thing that I dislike is the other customers that cheap fares tend to attract.
>Best Airline - RyanAir
Ive travelled to Madrid, Barcelona, Budapest, Prague, Rome, Athens all for less than €50 return. I know what I am in for with early/late departure times and often landing at non-main airports in some circumstances.
I dont care. RyanAir have more new planes than the majority of carriers. Its a no frill service that retards expect first class treatment on, then complain they spent €30 on in-flight scratchcards
>Worst Airline - EasyJet
Never takes off on time. Changes baggage weight and luggage dimensions at will. Staff communication in airports are awful. Primarily used by hen-parties, which are awful
Wizzair is the worst one for me and I didn't even get to fly with them.
They just cancelled my trip 5 times in the span of an year and tried to give me Wizz tokens or w/e as refund lmao.
Surprisingly good: Air Astana, much better than a lot of the more prestigious European airliners.
Worst: Aeroflot. The inflight entertainment was still on one big screen up front for the whole economy cabin to watch. First it was a Hobbit movie then some old cartoons, both in in Russian, with barley visible English subtitles. This was on a flight from the US to Moscow, so by no means short. At least my next leg was virtually empty, which was a creepy experience on its own.
Aer lingus or American airlines
Easily Korean air. Air France comes in at a close second.
Literally flew in on JetBlue today and was mildly surprised but they forced everyone to watch like 5 minutes of stupid ads when the plane took off.
Can anyone explain to me why out of 100s of thousands of commercial pilots there's not a single black woman as one of them? Hell I think there is not a single African American captain in the United States. Why is the airline industry so racist?
I don’t know Schizo but here’s your >you
youre preaching to the choir
they robbing the country blind to fill the pockets of a bunch of corrupt politicians that want a new airport for the shithole capital and so are artificially overcrowding the current one with flights diverted from Porto something they did to also try and kill of northern industry and tourism but backfired because thankfully we arent a 100% socialist shithole and some freemaket exists so ryanair and others quickly jumped in and not only filled the vacant flights, but heavily expanded them
also its constantly late and delayed and cancelled and offers shit support
cheap rates but comfy and spacious
much better than ryanair and easyjet, just a shame it isnt more widespread
Flight scheduled for around midday, delayed to 0:10am without any explanation. Everything at the airport shuts at 10pm, the entire airport devoid of life, and not even any staff. No food or water, not even a water tap (fucking Milan).
10 past midnight comes and goes, no update, no announcement, nobody knows what's going on. Aircraft pulls up at 2am. No explanation, no apology. We wait another 1.5 hours on the tarmac for no reason provided, still no water RIP.
Arrive in Prague at 4am, crew says the delay is because of the weather, despite the weather being great everywhere and no other flights having any issues. Wait for 1 hour for luggage.
After that hour, an airport worker comes (the first member of airport staff we have seen, as it's the middle of the night), saying what are you doing, we don't have your luggage.
"no no, your luggage was unloaded back in Milan because they couldn't account for an extra bag. Didn't the airline tell you?" youarefuckingkiddingme.gif
People are crying, people are yelling, there are families with kids who don't know what to do.
Arrive at my hotel after sunrise, finally can sleep.
Took 9 months to get 250 euro compensation. Thanks jizzair, never again.
>using checked luggage on low cost airlines
that was your mistake
Ryanair hands down. No bullshit, just put me on my plane for 20 bucks and I have no problem using the tiny free carry on.
Aer lingus gives impossible transfers as an option frequently and their headphones are shit
