I hate to fly, rarely do, but have to make a trip to Boston in May. Does anyone know of a good airline to travel. My last flight was years ago. Appreciate suggestions.

I dont think Jet Blue comes to DFW. When I looked into DFW to Boston a year ago, American was the only airline that flew direct (we hate layovers).

Default American

The smart choice would be American. American has a massive hub at DFW and has close to ten non-stop flights a day between BOS-DFW. Most every other airline would have you change planes and connect at some intermediate delay prone aerodrome. If you do not choose American Airlines you clearly screwed up.

I would second American Airlines with last MD-80 old airplanes ground and check fiasco.
The only problem with flying Continental - there are no direct flights to Boston - you have to switch planes in Houston, TX

Default do not hate on the MD-80

MD-80's are the most airworthy airplanes in the air. Douglas built those things like tanks, very well built airplanes. Northwest is still fly the predecessor to the MD-80, the DC-9 and some are older than the pilots over 40 years old. The grounding thing last week was more of a FAA l over correction after the FAA was embarrassed by the Southwest fiasco.

Yes, American is the only one through DFW which will go nonstop to Boston. Definitely did not want to change in Houston. Thanks all. And is not a long flight from DFW, maybe 31/2 hr. and got into Business class. So should be bearable.
