I’ve had a poll up and running for quite some time on the front page here which asked the question “What is the best airline for golf travel?” I’ve finally decided to end that poll and post the astounding results, which I completely agree with. Here they are below.
- US Airways (4%)
- United Airlines (5%)
- Southwest Airlines (60%)
- Jetblue Airlines (10%)
- Delta Airlines (8%)
- Continental Airlines (1%)
- British Airways (3%)
- American Airlines (10%)
Southwest Airlines resoundingly won with 60% of the voters picking them. The closest competitor was Jetblue airlines at only 10%.
I agree with this vote based on the two following primary reasons:
- Cost: Southwest is very competitive price-wise. Golf is expensive and we can travel more if the airfare is more affordable.
- Free baggage: To bring my golf clubs on Delta or another airline that charges for bags can run an extra $50-$150!!! That’s highway (airway) robbery.
