Each year CareerBliss.com publishes a list of the “Happiest Airlines For Holiday Travel” based on an analysis of thousands of job reviews written by airline employees.

The winner?

As reported by Jacquelyn Smith on Forbes.com:

After three consecutive years on top, Southwest Airlines fell to No. 4 this year as American Airlines landed the No. 1 spot. With a “bliss score” of 4.33 out of 5, American is the happiest airline to travel this holiday season.

American Airlines ranked high in overall in the “company culture,” “relationship with co-workers” and “senior management” categories. One employee states they like working for American Airlines because “it’s [a] large reputable company with great employee benefits and pay.”

Late last year American and their pilot’s union went head to head in a bitter contract dispute that led to flight delays and cancellations.

Oh what a difference a year makes!
