It is not a question that can be easy to answer. Some will think about the service, others about the price, others about the gastronomy or the miles program. But in times of coronavirus, which is the best airline to fly in the United States? Without a doubt, Delta.
In a period in which social distancing is part of the basic protocol of care to avoid contagion, Delta is the only American airline that blocks the center seats on all its flights, at least until March 30, 2021.
Despite the fact that all airlines have taken extreme preventive measures, with protocols of extreme cleaning and advanced ventilation, many customers prefer (we prefer) to have additional space for greater peace of mind.
Additionally, the Delta CareStandard program encompasses more than 100 protective measures, such as disinfection of all flights, a comprehensive COVID testing program for employees, and the use of industrial-grade HEPA filters that remove more than 99.99% of the particles, including viruses.
Also, the company extended the use of travel credits until December 2022 for trips that were originally scheduled to depart before March 31, 2021 (if the ticket was purchased before April 17, 2020).
Although it may be subjective, like any opinion, today the best airline to fly in the United States is, without a doubt, Delta.
