With so many airlines in the United States, how does one know which one is the best in terms of cancellations, delays, mishandled baggage, etc? While these things are unavoidable, some airlines are more problematic than others. The Wall Street Journal’s recently updated Airline Scorecard can tell you how the major airlines rank.
While performance varied in different categories, Alaska’s total performance was clearly the best among the rated airlines. Delta came in second with Southwest at a close third. Everyone else scored quite a bit worse, with United and American performing the lowest. You can see a breakdown of the ratings over at the Wall Street Journal and use these statistics to help you decide which airline is best for you.
