AUSTIN (KXAN) — Extra fees, delays and cancellations. There are a lot of things that can turn an exciting getaway into a nightmare flight.
As summer travel ramps up, travel website The Vacationer has released a new survey looking at which airlines people avoid at all costs.
Spirit Airlines is the most-avoided airline, with one in five survey respondents saying they choose not to fly with the airline if possible.
Fellow low-cost carrier Allegiant Air is second, with 16.4% of people avoiding the airline. American Airlines came third, at 14.4%.
Hawaiian Airlines had the lowest percentage of people who say they avoid the airline, at just 5.5%. United Airlines was close behind, at 7.6%.
Almost half of survey respondents, however, said they don’t avoid any airline. About 48% of people said the cost of the flight or the flight schedules are more important than the airline.
