In the category of basic economy flights, Southwest Airlines was the highest scorer by passengers, followed by JetBlue Airways and Delta Air Lines, which ranked second and third respectively.
in the segments Premium economy flights, and first/business class, JetBlue topped both preferences. Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines battled it out for the next positions in both categories.
Mike Taylor, managing director of travel, hospitality and retail for JD Power, said customer satisfaction has changed since certain measures implemented since the pandemic, such as the suspension of alcohol service in Premium class.
Similarly, the 20% increase in average airfaresdue to the increase in fuel prices, had a lot of weight in the degree of customer satisfaction and ratings.
