America's Meanest Airline's

Simply put, flying can be a stressful activity.

A lot of the time it begins with the airports: dizzying parking garages, overpriced food and a series of long lines have a way of making even the most serene travelers a little bit agitated. And that's even before the airplane leaves the ground. So it's easy to see how poor service from an airline can put the finishing touches on a ruined day -- long check-in lines, flight delays, lost luggage, baggage fees and general rudeness have a way of doing that. Not to mention the scary food (at least it used to be free scary food).

Based on the Airline Quality Rating (AQR) Report, which covers 18 domestic carriers, here is a list of the airlines that could stand to do the most work on making their customers happy. The report's conclusions are based on surveys of airline industry experts, with positive and negative values assigned to different elements in airline quality. Several common complaint areas were factored in -- including on-time arrival, mishandled baggage, delays and involuntary denied boardings -- the scores of which were then calculated to produce an overall quality score. We also took a look at a number of other sources, including the American Customer Satisfaction Index and the Air Travel Consumer Reports by the U.S. Department of Transportation. Regional airlines are ranked separately because of their tendency to score lower.

Worst Major Airlines

5. US Airways

2009 AQR Score: -1.19

While US Airways improved five percent in passenger satisfaction according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, they were one of three airlines cited as having the rudest flight attendants and serving the worst food, in a survey conducted by SeatGuru last year. Additionally, US Airways received a below-average score in the J.D. Power 2010 North America Airline Satisfaction Study.

Domestic Baggage Fees:
1st Bag: $25
2nd Bag: $35 3rd Bag: $100

Overweight Bags: $50 Extra (51 - 70 lbs) $100 Extra (71 - 100 lbs)

Oversized Bags: $100 Extra (larger than 62")

4. American Airlines

2009 AQR Score: -1.25

American Airlines has an Airline Quality Rating (AQR) of -1.25 -- which isn't awful, but where its reputation takes the hardest hit is with its regional airline, American Eagle (more on it later).

This year AA has had frequent incidents of mishandled baggage with an average of 4.07 reports per 1,000 passengers, according to the Air Travel Consumer Reports (this is the worst rating among the major airlines in the study). SeatGuru's survey named American Airlines as one of the three airlines that have the rudest flight attendants and the worst food.

Domestic Baggage Fees:
1st Bag: $25
2nd Bag: $35
3rd Bag: $100

Overweight Bags: $50 (51 - 70 lbs) $100 (71 - 100 lbs)

Oversized Bags: $150 (larger than 62")

3. Alaska Airlines

2009 AQR Score: -1.39

Alaska Airlines has an Airline Quality Rating (AQR) of -1.39, which can be partially attributed to the airline's high number of mishandled baggage reports. According to Air Travel Consumer Reports, the airline averaged 3.98 incidents per 1,000 passengers last year. However, Alaska Airlines did a stellar job when it came to delays, with 88 percent of its flights having on-time arrivals (in the 12-month period ending August 2010).

Domestic Baggage Fees:
1st Bag: $20
2nd Bag: $20
3rd Bag: $20

Overweight Bags: $50 (51 - 100 lbs)

Oversized Bags: $50 (63 - 80") $75 (81 - 115")

2. United Airlines

2009 AQR Score: -1.43

Now that the merger with Continental Airlines is official, United can turn its attention to improving customer service. United received a score of "about average" in the J.D. Power 2010 North America Airline Satisfaction Study but it placed last in passenger satisfaction in the American Customer Satisfaction Index. According to the SeatGuru survey, United joins American Airlines and US Airways as one of the three worst airlines for meals and rude flight attendants. In addition, the Air Travel Consumer Reports places this airline second in consumer complaints (behind Delta), averaging 1.82 per 100,000 enplanements in 2010.

Domestic Baggage Fees:
v1st Bag: $25
2nd Bag: $35
3rd Bag: $100

Overweight Bags: $100 (51 - 100 lbs)

Oversized Bags: $100 (larger than 62")

1. Delta

2009 AQR Score: -1.73

Delta had the worst AQR among major airlines with a -1.73, and a couple of its regional airlines did even worse (see Comair and Atlantic Southeast below). It also had the largest drop in passenger satisfaction in the American Customer Satisfaction Index. According to the Air Travel Consumer Reports, Delta was number one in delays for major airlines (78 percent of flights arriving on time in the 12-month period ending August 2010) and first in consumer complaints (averaging 2.23 per 100,000 enplanements in 2010). Also, make sure to note Delta's baggage fees below, as they can get quite painful for those hauling heavy and/or large cargo.

Domestic Baggage Fees:
1st Bag: $25 ($23 if checked online)
2nd Bag: $35 ($32 if checked online)
3rd Bag: $125

Overweight Bags: $90 (51 - 70 lbs) $175 (71 - 100 lbs)

Oversized Bags: $175 (larger than 63 - 80") $300 (larger than 81 - 115")

Worst Regional Airlines

Please note that the regional airlines follow the baggage fee structure of whichever major airline you happen to be flying under.

4. SkyWest

2009 AQR Score: -1.57

SkyWest Airlines has several hubs throughout the United States, including Chicago and Los Angeles. SkyWest received a -1.57 AQR, which is the fifth worst score overall among the airlines covered in the 2010 Airline Quality Ratings. One area that contributed to this score was mishandled baggage, where they averaged 5.69 incidents per 1,000 passengers last year. It acts as a regional airline for AirTran, Delta Connection and United Express.

3. Comair

2009 AQR Score: -2.22

With a -2.22 AQR, Comair got the third worst score overall among the airlines surveyed in the 2010 Airline Quality Ratings. Mishandled baggage was an issue, with an average of 6.04 incidents per 1,000 passengers last year. Comair was also number one in delays overall, with only 73 percent of flights arriving on time in the 12-month period ending August 2010, according to the Air Travel Consumer Reports. Comair is a regional for Delta Connection, with its main hubs at Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky and JFK airports.

2. Atlantic Southeast

2009 AQR Score: -2.49

Atlantic Southeast serves as a regional airline for Delta Connection and United Express with several hubs in the States, including Memphis and Chicago. It has the second most incidents of mishandled baggage (6.67 reports per 1,000 passengers on average in 2010 so far) according to the Air Travel Consumer Reports. Atlantic Southeast received a -2.49 AQR, which is the second worst score overall among the airlines covered in the 2010 Airline Quality Ratings.

1. American Eagle

2009 AQR Score: -2.83

With a -2.83 AQR score, American Eagle has the unwelcome distinction of having the worst score overall among the airlines covered in the 2010 Airline Quality Ratings. According to the Air Travel Consumer Reports, it also had the most incidents of mishandled baggage (7.41 reports per 1,000 passengers on average in 2010 so far) and was number two in delays, with only 76 percent of flights arriving on time in the 12-month period ending August 2010. American Eagle is the main regional for American Airlines. American Eagle operates out of a number of hubs in the United States, including Boston and Dallas.

Life's Allure...!!!

Life for the past two weeks(last week & this week) was really a challenging one for me... It's like a nightmare that no one wants to go through.....

My bike was out of service for the past one month... because my bro met with an accident... (screw that lady) because of her silly mistake, my bro has to undergo an operation, and it leaves an impact on me.. cos bike is the only vehicle for me shuttling to and fro to college...

So, now cab is the only transport that I rely on.. quiet tiring la, taking the cab everyday to college, but sometimes if my dad is free he will drop me or fetch me... but if he's working then.. cab would be my only option... :(( (but i'm grateful at least there's something that i can depend on.... Furthemore, adding to the headache, was exam's and practical test.... I think i'm having cerebral infarction..haha... too many exam's in two weeks... and today was my Electrotherapy practical exam... luckily could managed.... tomorrow would be Musculoskeletal practical exam...arghghghghghghg..................

Anyway, I hope i can go through this bit's of life's allure because life is, was and will be like this... that's what life is all about... without those challenging chores, I think life would be smooth and no fun.... sometimes we need problems in our life to keep us going and growing to be mature......

R.I.P Paul the Octopus...!!!

BERLIN – Paul the octopus, who shot to fame during this year's football World Cup in South Africa for his flawless record in predicting game outcomes, has died, his aquarium in Germany said on Tuesday.
"Management and staff at the Oberhausen Sea Life Centre were devastated to discover that oracle octopus Paul, who achieved global renown during the recent World Cup, had passed away overnight," the aquarium said in a sombre statement.
"Paul amazed the world by correctly predicting the winners of all Germany's World Cup clashes, and then of the final," said Sea Life manager Stefan Porwoll.
"His success made him almost a bigger story than the World Cup itself ... We had all naturally grown very fond of him and he will be sorely missed," said Porwoll.
Paul beat the odds during the World Cup by correctly forecasting all eight games he was asked to predict, including Spain's 1-0 win over the Netherlands in the final.
For the prediction, two boxes were lowered into the salty soothsayer's tank, each containing a mussel and a flag of the two opposing teams.
Watched by a myriad of reporters, Paul would head to one box, wrench open the lid and gobble the tasty morsel, with the box he plumped for being deemed the likely winner.
Paul's body is now in cold storage while the aquarium decides "how best to mark his passing."
However, Paul's fans need not despair. The aquarium has already been grooming a successor, to be named Paul like his mentor.
"We may decide to give Paul his own small burial plot within our grounds and erect a modest permanent shrine," said Porwoll.
"While this may seem a curious thing to do for a sea creature, Paul achieved such popularity during his short life that it may be deemed the most appropriate course of action."

Everything Happens For A Reason...!!!

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there, they serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become.

You never know who these people may be; your roommate, your neighbor, professor, long lost friend, lover or even a complete stranger who, when you lock eyes with them, you know that very moment that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you and at the time they seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never have realized your potential, strength, will power of heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. Illness, injury, love, lost moments or true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test the limits of the soul.

Without these small tests, if they be events, illnesses or relationships, life would be like a smooth paved, straight, flat road to nowhere. Safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet who affect your life and successes and downfalls you experience, they are the ones who create who you are. Even the bad experience can be learned from... Those lessons are the hardest and probably the most important ones.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart... forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but because they are teaching you to love and opening your heart and eyes to things you would have never seen or felt without them.

Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from it everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience it again. Talk to people you have never talked to before, and actually listen, let yourself fall in love, break free and set your sights high. 
You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

I wish you all the best in your endeavors as well as struggles in life. Have a fighting spirit and never hesitate to get back in the struggle!!!

An eight-year-old boy approached an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes, and asked: "I understand you're a very wise man. I'd like to know the secret of life."

The old man looked down at the youngster and replied: "I've thought a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words.

The first is think. Think about the values you wish to live your life by.

The second is believe. Believe in yourself based on the thinking you've done about the values you're going to live your life by.

The third is dream. Dream about the things that can be, based on your belief in yourself and the values you're going to live by.

The last is dare. Dare to make your dreams become reality, based on your belief in yourself and your values."
And with that, Walter E. Disney said to the little boy, "Think, Believe, Dream, and Dare."

"you dare to dream big, so it's your responsibility to make your make that dream come true"

Clinical Posting...!!!

Hello r ya??

Saw the title??? Sounds interesting uh...!
Last week one of my lecturer inform me that there will be a short briefing about the posting on the following day..he said it has be pre-pone to next week...(this week)...
When i heard the news about the posting, half of my heart felt like sinking deep into the sea....(arghghghg), there's Feast Day Celebration coming up in the Church and oh my I'm going to miss it..and another half was quite happy because I long to go for the posting after a year and a half of theory classes...(enough of it) but it is where we learn our basics and a time to gain much knowledge in the have to go thorough all the hectic period of life as a student...hahahaahaha....
I'm going out of topic..OK leave it...

Took the bus at 8.00 am on 3rd of oktober(hurmm..that was yesterday folks, don't think too much)Hehehe...
We were supposed to board the bus at 6.00am...but (MASTERSKILL MANAGEMENT) what to expect uh...malay says "redha jew la"..Ahakss...
OK, come to the point...Oh my Oh my...don't know what the bus driver was thinking..can u imagine this, since we stop for breakfast around 10.00 am...he stops at every petrol kiosk along the journey...Don't know for what...Haiizzz....
All of us are damn restless in the bus already... At last we reach KUALA LUMPUR at 6+...but the real problem started when we reached our destination, MAHKOTA CHERAS... the place is like 'What you hear is not like what you see'.... I can't give you a real picture of what it seems to be like in here.... OMG... no words that can explained the situation here.... the hostel is like......ok let me not get into that..the management was not prepared to receive us, no proper utilities and etc....
At first the warden gave us a room at level 6..we took the elevator and was surprised to know that there was all odd numbers on the button...WTH... wheres level 5??? So we decided to take the stairs up to one level(OMG...with my load of bag)....ok problem with that....
open the room door and..........................................WT*.............It's a store where they keep all the old stuff...Called the warden immediately and asked her to have a look at the room that she gave us...(she too was shocked) and gave us a new room..that means we have to take the elevator down and go to another block...which was damn far..(imagine me with that Big bag)...Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.........waited for the elevator almost 15 minutes and another 15 minutes at the new block....arghghghghghgghghghghghghghghgh........... was sweating like shit....
opened the new room was so dirty( but i guess it was normal for hostels to be like that) no big deal..cleaned everything up...and bought dinner downstairs...(again walked so far)..but the dinner that we bought was not worthy at all walking so far only that we were full after eating.....lights off and was asleep...

DAY 1: Supposed to get up at 5.00am but I could managed to get up at 5.40am..Hahaha.... took a quick shower and off for posting at Beverly Hills Home Care,Kajang... there was only one van and there are 15 of us for the morning shift...(what to do than getting cramp up) but  the CI did not follow us so as there was not enough space in the van... Reach there at 7.30am...waited and waited until the nurse all can go and have your breakfast at 9.00am....
After breakfast... Since there was no theres nothing much to do...the nurse introduced us the patient and their history of illness....One lady cried when the nurse told her "tomorrow they will be treating you"..and she shed her tears while saying this "No No...i don't want to be treated..let me die...I'm a sinner..i didn't pray for a long time because i was ill"....It was such an emotional state of mind at that time....then the nurse cooled her down...We got back to hostel at 12.30p.m.....................

DAY 2: OK...second day was a bit tough because CI (Clinical Instructor) was there..after breakfast, we were  divided into 3 groups ( 5 per group) and as usual I was be in the first group...haha... CI brought the first group which was me in there touring the clinic... and she started choosing patients for us to assessed.. she choose an elderly Stroke Patient... Then she started asking one by one about stroke and etc... then slowly she upgraded the questions to a more difficult part = the treatment... luckily I could answer her questions (but got or two was a bit blur) the others who can't answer ( got scolding in front of the patients) and indeed that was tooootally embarrassing..... the Q and A session took almost an hour... came home at 1.00p.m... slept and got up at 6.00p.m for the sake of going to Jusco to purchase some items... came back and slept...
eh eh eh...wait a minute got a story to tell... some creepy story la... All of us went out to Jusco when one of my friend decided to stay back in hostel because he was lazy to follow.. suddenly he heard the opposite room door was opening and shutting for almost 2-3 minutes which in fact in was locked.... Sounds creepy uh? Believe It...!!!

DAY 3: Mostly the same routine but today she questioned us about Muscle and stuff.... another creepy story.. this is about another friend of mine who experienced a knock like sound in a house which was vacant and dark which was the same row as my hostel.....!!!

DAY 4: Yesterday she asked us to complete all the reports for the week and hand in today (friday)... So sad to see all this old people suffering with many disease like Parkinsonism, Stroke, Obesity, Diabetic, Mental Retard and etc... why should they suffer at this age of theirs where they should be enjoying the little bits & pieces of their live's... We could only pray for them...
Another creepy story, I just can't come to a conclusion why this things are happening only to us.... It's about 2.00a.m.. all was asleep except for 3 of us who was about to sleep..when suddenly one of my friend got up from his bed and ran to his room to take his "Yasin" prayer book and kept under his the morning when I asked him why he did so..he told that "someone" just appeared from the wall in front of his bed and ran towards his bed and he could hear foot steps.... I said "but I didn't hear anything, because my bed was just beside his".... after he took the "Yasin" prayer book.. he could sense that so called "someone" wanted to sit on top of him but could not because of that prayer book.....
My body felt cold when I was writing this.............................

DAY 5: Usual routine..but today after class I went to Seremban to visit my aunt and my brother.. and also for the weekend.... Quite boring in hostel.....

DAY 8-12: routine was as usual... during the whole second week CI taught us about hydrocephalus, stroke, parkinson, obesity, diabetic, and a little bit of cerebral palsy.. then we were also divided into two groups and a quick quiz mainly about anatomy & physiology were being conducted... this is the time to irritate one another because the questions were being prepared by us.. one of the question my group did was (draw and label the heart) hahaha..... after a while war was going on (biasa la)... During this time we are allowed to interview the patients (hurmm... quite interesting)....
eh eh... got creepy stories again happening in the condo... still remember I was away for the weekend? during one of the nights, my friend saw an image of "ME" was sleeping on my bed at around wee hours...another friend got an "Attack" from the outside world... thank GOD nothing happen to me...phewww.....

Saturday : Home Sweet Home time.... was very happy to go back after 2 weeks of headache... but all the happiness starts to fade away when the clock continue to tick but no sign of transport..... we were schedule to depart at 7.00a.m but later news arrive saying that the bus will be delayed till 11.00a.m.... OK still, but in reality it was delayed for another two hours...arghghghghghgh... that was what made all of us went mad... At last the bus arrived at 1.00p.m... felt damn relieve...(management oh management)

On The Bus: Better don't ask! It's a new bus but the phrase "seeing is always defeating" is true... It's so damn bumpy thru'out the whole journey... There was a point where the bus were nearly OVER TURNING... I'm not talking about OVER TAKING but OVER TURNING..... it went real wild till all of us were not sitting on our sit's, my hands and feet's was sweating like hell despite the air-conditioner, there were screaming going on... I really can't describe the scene.... only God knows... but the driver was just relaxing and talking on his mobile while driving.... Goshhh...... I would rather fly on a plane when it's bumpy than travelling on yesterday's bus.... It's like hell....

Later we found out that the driver departed from Terengganu early saturday morning and reach KL at noon to fetch us up.. then once dropping us at KB.. they made another trip to KL on the same day (night) with another batch of students without resting for at least 15 minutes..... imagine how dangerous was that....

Anyway I was thankful that i reach home safe & sound.... THANK GOD...
