Talk now about flight delays and all those cancellations of course there really common headaches for -- -- travelers.
So what airlines have the bass track record to get you to your destination on time and with less hassle.
Airfare watchdog is out with its latest survey to help this break -- down.
The out of Monty is here good morning I get the top airlines and the worst airlines according to these -- -- Well according to the survey the top two airlines -- virgin America and -- live.
Which I happen to agree with them in the -- pretty good airlines especially by American standards.
You you know you get TVs via Wi-Fi which is great -- to watch game you can do some -- Of course on the flip side the two worst airlines in America are American and united and I think it's united backfire and -- How do you explain -- to explain -- because of all the industry consolidation that's made those airlines and -- so poor according to customers.
I think that that has.
Big thing to do with it I mean.
Did merge with other airlines to -- you know very they've gotten bigger as opposed to getting better so I think the focus on growth has really hurt them.
Customer service wise and just.
You just fly them it's just not a pleasant experience it's really in and there's less flights there's less seats available it's more expensive there's more hassles more waiting everything it's just -- bad experience what's the top complaint among passengers is it lack of on time arrivals -- -- -- customers are asked.
I mean for me personally its customer service I mean I'm actually come through something with the united right now.
I used to buy American I switched united when they -- continental it's just a big problem I mean you have if you call you have to wait -- -- forever if you even get a real person.
If you send me an email sometimes have to wait a month to get a response is pretty bad OK who's the best for on time arrivals right.
The best for on time arrivals is Alaska Airlines and secular be AirTran Alaska is actually great airline they -- -- -- in the in the West Coast obviously up to Alaska.
In all over they have some partnerships -- some of the bigger airlines they're actually very pleasant airline to fly and obviously -- -- -- -- -- what about lost bags lost bags the the workers is definitely American united and the bats would be.
Our policy jetBlue and virgin America.
All right one thing that drives me nuts -- boarding procedures now days it used to be aware if you -- gold you're the first person who got to get on the plane or somebody with children.
And now it's platinum -- diamond it's cold it's silver and they're like really when we finally get to board.
Yet the proceeds is now are -- they're not streamlined they keep saying that they're trying to make it streamlined but that's not the case actually it's just confusing people.
And then you get these boarding numbers and it's really confusing so even if you have platinum status on airlines -- like people like me who travel active.
It doesn't actually mean you get to board first because -- they have military people and people with disabilities and and people -- children.
He's got everything by the time your group one is called their 1010 different groups that aborted -- exactly.
-- -- -- got to leave it there thank you so much our rock resident travel expert.
