WORCESTER – Even though someone stole a fuel truck at Worcester airport this week, there’s still some positive news coming down from Airport Hill.
A recent report from the data experts at WalletHub has listed the best airlines in the United States and Worcester Regional Airport is home [or future home] to three of the top 10 airlines on the list — including the most comfortable airline and the most reliable airline in the country.
The report — 2019’s Best Airlines — ranks Delta (#2), JetBlue (#8), and American airlines (#10) in the top 10; all three of which passengers can fly or can soon fly out of Worcester.
JetBlue flies daily to Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando and to their hub in New York City. American flies twice daily to their hub in Philadelphia. Delta Airlines will start flying out of Worcester to their hub in Detroit beginning in August 2019.
In their report, WalletHub compared the nine largest U.S. airlines and three regional carriers across 15 important metrics — ranging from cancellation and delay rates to baggage mishaps and in-flight comfort. WalletHub also considered costs in relation to in-flight amenities for the sake of fairness.
Most Reliable Airline: Delta Air Lines has the lowest rate of cancelations, delays, mishandled luggage and denied boardings.
Most Comfortable Airline: JetBlue leads the pack in terms of in-flight experience, offering free amenities such as Wi-Fi, extra legroom, and complimentary snacks and beverages.
Here is the full list of WalletHub’s 2019 Best Airlines:
