In my never ending quest to find cheap flights on my 30 Plus Teams Tour , I check out all of the United States and Canadian carriers I can find.
Since my 30 Plus Teams Tour only covers cities in the United States and Canada , you won’t see me checking out fares on British , Singapore or Qatar Airways , just saying .
My personal favorite airline is Southwest Airlines , mainly because they don’t charge you for checking up to two bags.
But even Southwest has gotten expensive and, sadly, they don’t fly out of Newark Liberty Airport anymore.
My second favorite carrier in the United States is Delta Airlines .
Not because I worked with them in Boston and Los Angeles , but because they finally stepped up their flying game .
That’s where American Airlines comes into the picture .
I hadn’t flown them in years and when I did, even as an employee of another carrier, I never had good experiences flying with them.
Where do I begin?
Bad service on the flight, rude customer service and even ruder flight attendants.
Not anymore .
I’m flying them more now because a girl has to get those frequent flyer miles to make even more 30 Plus Teams Tours .
American has gotten their act together and become an airline to passengers actually want to fly with.
They aren’t as unprofessional as they used to be.
(I think United Airlines has taken over as the airline people in the United States don’t want to fly with, if you ask the Sports Diva . )
Now if American can get me a cheap flight out of JFK, I’d be happy as if the New York Yankees won baseball’s World Series for the 28th time, just saying .
The seats on American are spacious , and even recline, unlike the Spirit Airlines flights that I take way too often.
They even have chargers for your electronic devices at every seat.
Some buses that I’ve been on don’t even have that.
As I mentioned, I fly out of Newark Liberty, even though JFK is basically in my backyard .
No, forget basically , JFK IS IN MY BACKYARD.
Between the planes at JFK flying over my house and the trains of the Long Island Railroad whizzing by my house at high speed , they seem to be competing to see who can make more noise when they pass by.
I do want my miles and cheaper flights , so I really don’t care if it’s Newark Liberty , JFK or even Philadelphia International that I have to go through to get that.
When I return home, God willing on March 3rd, I’m taking American Airlines again .
This time, Las Vegas to Dallas-Fort Worth to Newark Liberty .
Thank you American Airlines for making flying with you a lot more pleasant .
