Anyone ever fly America West?
 
Just curious if anyone has ever flown on America West airline? I am looking at flights for my
Alaska cruise this summer and they are coming in a couple hundred dollars cheaper right now than other airlines. I've never flown them and wonder if they are realiable, on time, etc.

It is my understanding that this is one of the better airlines out there. I have only flown two flights with them, but both were excellent.

I flew them twice. One of our flights was delayed but it wasn't their fault, it was a weather related delay and they were very good about helping people who were going to miss connections and keeping us updated on the status of the takeoff. I would fly them again.

Every single America West flight I have ever been on has been delayed. I believe it took me four flights to detect the pattern and to take a behavioral modification. Could just be the two cities involved, though, and there were no other problems.

I flew them once to Arizona from Chicago and had no problems. Although the flight coming back was delayed, I believe it was a weather problem back in Chicago, so no falt of theirs.

I've flown them several times and had no problems. My only complaint is they take away frequent flyer miles if you don't use them quickly enough.

Thanks for all the replies......after more research, I was able to find a flight on Northwest (or Northworst if you prefer) that more fit my schedule (not getting me home at midnight and leaving early enough that I could enjoy a second day in Anchorage) for only $100 more, so I booked that flight.

My nephew worked for america west, and my brother flew free (standby). They lost his luggage every time.
