7 Airlines You Should Avoid at All Costs

Air Canada

Even though Air Canada is the Great White North’s flagship airline, Redditors repeatedly put the company on blast.

Air France

The French do a lot of things right: fine art, wine, croissants, affordable healthcare. But Redditors trashed the country's main airline for its customer service and unkempt planes.


Aeroflot, Russia’s largest airline, earned a reputation for being one of the world’s deadliest carriers during the Cold War, with a total of 721 incidents in 44 years.


United tends to rank in the middle of the pack — far ahead of Spirit but behind front-runner JetBlue. But multiple Redditors called it the worst airline.

Spirit Airlines

It’s not an exaggeration to say that Spirit Airlines is the most hated carrier in America. The no-frills airline consistently ranks last in customer satisfaction among nine major carriers.


Like Spirit, Frontier is a budget carrier that Americans love to hate, in part because of the company’s fee-based business model.


It’s flying … but without glamor, comfort, or customer service! Even then, the flights are so cheap that some critics continue to patronize the Irish carrier.
