Everyone seems to complain about the decline in airline quality over the years. Cabin comfort, airplane food and customer service standards are easy to critique. Misplaced or mangled luggage is an all-to-common occurrence these days. But then there are more serious issues like safety records to consider, too. Here’s a list of 15 of the worst airlines in the world. You might want to think twice about booking with some of them. One sacrifices goats to fix mechanical issues!
15. With RyanAir, You Get What You Pay for and Nothing More … And Sometimes Less
The Dublin-based low-cost carrier is another airline that illustrates the “you get what you pay for” concept. The airline has no reclining seats, so you’re cramped and upright the whole trip. There are no reserved seats on RyanAir, so there’s always a mad dash of aggressive passengers at the gate jockeying for position. The carrier also has plans to reduce its toilets from three to one so they can squeeze in six more seats. That’s a sure sign that basic customer comfort is a low priority with RyanAir.
14. Iberia Expects You to Keep Yourself Occupied Without Their Help
Passengers often complain about the service and comfort levels on Iberia flights. Seat comfort, food quality and staff disposition are rated poorly on this Spanish airline. Meal service is rushed and attendants can be rude, according to some reviews. There is no seat-back in-flight entertainment, so make sure you bring your own diversions. In terms of value for money, Iberia is a disappointment.
