US News & World Report gives you a sweet, wrapped up little gift, America’s Meanest Airlines: 2011.
Most of the time we’re buying our plane tickets solely based on price – not how hatefully we will be treated. But don’t forget you have options, my friends! Case in point: Delta is listed as the fifth meanest airline, but Atlanta competitor Airtran – which typically has the same prices as Delta – is nowhere on this list. And Southwest Airlines starts Atlanta departures in February. I’m thinking Delta’s going to have to start rethinking its ‘tude.
I’m also thinking there are other airline hubs with similar situations … Chicago? New York? You might think twice this Christmas before you sacrifice your happiness to save $20.
