2023s Best Airlines

WalletHub just released their list of ‘2023’s Best & Worst Airlines’

The website points out that airline prices have risen over 25% of the past 12 months and that outpaces inflation. So far this year the inflation rate has gone down from 6.4% in January to 5% in March.

With this in mind, it’s more imperative than ever we get great value out of the overpriced flights we take.

It was WalletHubs goal to take a look at often overlooked aspects of flying so travelers can make more informed decisions on choosing an airline.
While WalletHub considered price and value, thay also rated overall travel experience as it relates to safety, delays, baggage concerns, traveling with animals and more.

It seems like each day we read about unruly travelers on flights. And while that can be unpredictable and out of our control, there are a number of factors that we can control to give us the best possible flying experience.

Other metrics rated included denied boarding’s, leg room, entertainment options, Wi-Fi availability, complimentary refreshments, accidents and fleet age.

Locally at Philadelphia International Airport, the most popular airline with the most flights is American. That is followed by Frontier, Spirit, Delta and United.
