Air travel is back and better than ever. With many Americans taking to the skies to travel Upgraded Points wanted to find out which airline offers the best in-flight experience. The number of passengers traveling will only continue to grow, and with staffing issues and canceled flights dominating headlines, a great travel experience has never been more important. Living in Charlotte I’ve tended to fly mainly American or US Air when they were separate entities. But just this year I’ve branched out looking for the best deal to reach my destination. It is interesting to compare the experience of different options. In many cases it’s a give-and-take situation, one airline may offer better boarding perhaps but another provides free wifi. It all comes down to preference and what’s important to the flier. Unless of course, you can spring for first class. I, however, cannot. Though as long as I get there on time and safely that’s all that truly matters.

So, you’re flying economy. Which airline is going to give you the best in-flight experience?
