Each year 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

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!

Safe travels and Happy Thanksgiving!
