If you plan to travel over the next few weeks, book your air carrier very carefully!
Skyscanner.com, a website that compares airfares, car rentals, and hotel stays for the lowest prices just released a survey in which readers were asked which US airline had the rudest flight attendants. American Airlines was given the embarrassing honor, with 25 percent of the vote going to them.
United Airlines placed second with 21 percent of the vote, Delta took third place with 18 percent of the vote, US Airways and Spirit rounded out the top five, with 12 percent and 10 percent, respectively.
Surprisingly, it was the lower cost carriers like Virgin and JetBlue that received the lowest vote (a good thing in this survey!) So, while some carriers may be more expensive, it might be worth booking with them to get the kindness and compassion you deserve when “flying the friendly skies.”
See the top 12 list below.
