Today I will be sharing my thoughts and opinions on some airlines that I think are overrated and some that could be possibly underrated. I ask that you all please respect my opinion as this is just my thoughts only. So to start this all off we have a few overrated airlines to me.
Overrated: Alaska Airlines. Alaska has always been at the top of Startrax and many airline reviews based on their overall performance, Missed Luggage and amenities. While Alaska overall is a great airline, I think they are overhyped. I say this because as a ramper and a traveller there airbus fleet is really crappy. They are dirty, their staff are rude and overall need to be replaced. Also overall, their flights are delayed and never on time. Also as a company, Alaska Airlines, is very a babysit company meaning they want things a very specific way or else you can get written up.
Jetblue: The New York based airline. I flew them from Fort Lauderdale to Chicago. Let me begin on saying that I was very excited to fly on them. Our flight was supposed to take off at 930 pm local time but didn’t start boarding until 45 minutes after it was do in at 10:15 pm. Luckily boarding was quick so that’s a plus. We also had to change gates about a dozen times as well. The flight crew overall was fantastic but the airplane lacked IFE that was a bit disappointing as well as the service was nothing special to me. It felt like It was just on another airline.
Now for the underrated and for this one I just have one airline:
Underrated: Allegiant… But now some of you might say that’s biased you work for them… Now hold on. Just like you I too was skeptical and thought the same way about allegiant, until I took a flight with them and let me tell you, it was fantastic. Yes you have to pay for every little thing but guess what that’s okay. You’re going on vacation, you can afford it. My flight was heading to Fort Lauderdale from Memphis and let me tell you. My gf and I were the last ones on the plane but hey that’s non-rev life. The flight was on board a newer Airbus a320 with winglets. We departed on time and made it to FLL on time. Allegiant gets a bad rep for things in the past and you can’t judge an airline by its past. Another thing that was so great about the flight was the whole flight crew. They were all personable and had smiles on their face and were quite engaged with the passengers. So please before saying you’re never going to fly, Allegiant gives them a fair chance to make up your mind. They have a newer modern fleet of Airbus A319 and 320s.
Please be respectful in the comments. These are my opinions and my only. I’m not saying I won’t fly or work these airlines again. It is just what I made off with my first impressions. All offtopic or rude comments will be flagged.
