Airline Ratings – The Best Airlines and Worst Airlines in September
Most airline ratings improved overall for the month
Worst Airlines for Mishandled Bags:
- SkyWest Airlines — 4.90 reports per 1,000 passengers. Once again, feeder carriers usually have worse airline ratings and higher mishandled bag stats because of delays and challenging connections with legacy carriers. But SkyWest’s September performance made it the worst of the airlines, as mishandled bags increased from the 4.76 reports per 1,000 passengers it reported a year earlier.
- American Eagle — 4.40 reports per 1,000 passengers. Although it’s hardly good in the world of airline ratings, American Eagle’s metric is still better than the 5.55 reports per 1,000 passengers the airline reported a year earlier.
- AirTran — 4.00 bags per 1,000 passengers. The fact that AirTran is one of the worst airlines for bags may be a shocker, given AirTran’s rating near the top of the list last September with only 1.48 mishandled bags per 1,000 passengers. But airline integration causes all sorts of short-term hiccups, as the airline ratings show.
Other Airline Ratings:
- ExpressJet — 3.75 reports per 1,000 passengers.
- Southwest — 3.30 reports per 1,000 passengers.
- United Airlines — 5.14 reports per 1,000 passengers.
