3Singapore Air
This airline is cheated
-being not letted other airlines to win
-mean and fancy
-over expensive airline ticket booking
This airline is somewhat an overrated brat. In my opinion Airlines like Emirates, Etihad, Qatar Airways, ANA, and other competitors are byfar off them.
This airline is epic!

4US Airways
The flight attendants made me try and put two 60 lb, 2 ft wide suitcases in the storage space 4 ft above my head. They also put me at the very back of the plane with someone I didn't know, and my parents were at the front of the plane. This was when I was only 9 years old!
Had no problems at all
Could not find worse

Poor PR. dodge problems

6British Airways
I fly all over the world with many, many airlines. 100% of my worst issues have been with BA. First, the amount of time it takes to connect to BA flights in Heathrow is hideous. They say 45 mins is the minimum connection time - but you need at least 90 mins. Second, their baggage handling is notoriously bad. I have had multiple bags lost for more than 5 days each. Third, their customer service agents try to help - but they have no power and improper training. Recently I was in the boarding area for a flight that was VERY delayed. The agents kept telling everyone that the plane would start boarding after the pilot completed security checks. However, anyone who looked out the window could see that one of the engines had been more or less taken a part and pieces of it were laying on the tarmac. 20 mins later the flight was cancelled Very bad. Finally, the inflight service is really the worst. Bad food. Bad seats. Dirty Planes. Very, very bad.
They are known for losing baggages and non-existent customer services! Their promotions are misleading, especially considering their price matching guarantees.
They seemed to be short staffed, food was terrible and the T.V.'s didn't work properly, they either didn't have picture, or if they did have picture they had no sound.

8Air Berlin
An absolutely miserable airline, made worst by the dishonest public relations masking a ruthless cutthroat organization. Try telephoning them--it's next to impossible, and they rig their phones to put the caller on hold for 5-10 minutes and then cut out. An unethical business.
Google air berlin + lost bags. It's amazing that this airline manages to stay in business. I'd rather pay a little more money for a flight than have all of my stuff disappear.

9Austrian Airlines
Disgusting customer service...well, actually there is none. They absolutely leave you stranded. I was sick with food poisoning in israel and I have been stuck here one month now and they refuse to rebook my ticket without an entire manuscript from the hospital. They originally asked for a medical note (upon my release) which I provided then they started asking for more and more. Still waiting and my phone bill (from the US) which I have only used to call them has reached $365

10Viking Airlines
That airlines is not that good
Do Vikings live in it or what?

The Contenders

11Air India
Worst service, PIA is much better.

They won't refund my ticket for not flying
Who wrote this is stupid

13United Airlines


15Tiger Airlines
Not even my kid had enough leg room on this plane! People with long legs shouldn't have to pay extra for more legroom, it's the way we were born! Just give us reasonable leg room!


Always having engine problems everytime when your hear something about planes its always Quantas


While the above comment is true, they are and still do top most safest airline of all time, they have flown more flights with 0 fatalities of any airline.

ughhh a heart behind my seat. no entertainment!?


Southwest is nasty and dose not have first class

18Pakistan International Airlines
PIA is much better airline, as compared to some of above mentioned.

Crashed in san fran

20Air Botswana
Rubbish airline. Rubbish service. Rubbish food. Just rubbish.

21American Airllines

22Bhoja Air

23Kuwait Airways


25Cathay Pacific
The worst airline ever experienced. Plane cancelled after passengers waiting on the tarmac for 3+ hours. No notification for alternative airline. One of our luggage got lost. No compensation made.

I really hate monarch because there is no T.V. on the a300s and no free food

27Air France



30Batavia Air

31Thomson Airlines
Were do I start
-the seats were as high as the eifel tower
I can not be bothered to say anymore because there is just to many bad coments I am forsed to fly with them because they are cheapish

32Spirit Airlines
Too many fees, least legroom in the industry.

33Cebu Pacific
Unreliable, unprofessional. Delayed on the Tarmac for almost 6 hours in Manila with passengers on board, dumbest excuses provided by the Captain. Complaint lodged online, and to present date, no response received. Do yourself a favour and pay for a more expensive flight, at lease it will get you to your destination on time.


35Allegiant Air
