Where Do The Best Airlines To Fly In 2021 Rank In Terms Of Price, Fees, And Cancellations?
The regular inconveniences of air travel have returned with Americans returning to the skies and finally starting to travel again after a year of limitations. Those taking a flight have already found reasons to remember why they may not have enjoyed flying in the first place, such to boisterous passengers, aircraft delays, and skyrocketing ticket prices.
Due to the pandemic and travel restrictions keeping people at home, airlines faced historic losses in 2020, but since the limitations have eased and passengers have been able to vacation again, many have been wondering how to locate the finest firm to book their flights with.

On the flipside, their greater service margin rankings resulted in higher pricing, and the airline came in dead last in the category.
Southwest, United, Alaska, and American rounded out the top five airlines, with greater marks in different categories. Southwest was praised for its on-time performance, customer happiness, cheap baggage/change costs, and award program, while United was praised for its on-time performance, as well as their route network and frequent flyer program. However, they didn’t fare as well in terms of consumer satisfaction, coming in towards the bottom.

However, their score was not so favorable when it came to mishandled luggage, and they were relegated to the bottom of the list.
When it came to the lowest-scoring airlines, the findings were all over the place in terms of scores.
