Happy Flying!





  1. I generally use twitter. I send compliments and complaints. Much faster response time than other channels

  2. How do you personally engage with your airlines via social media? Follow on Twittter and Facebook -they are all there and they are all present – good info and good deals —

  3. I’m still learning. For now, I take advantage of bonuses from Facebook “Like” promotions.

  4. I engage with @ACTopTier on a regular basis. I’ll tweet photos, make comments, ask questions, and joke around sometimes.

  5. I usually tweet them but I actually find airports to be better at social media especially during delays

  6. I have had great luck contacting Delta on Twitter. When my inbound connecting flight was delayed causing me to miss the last flight to my destination, I was able to get booked on a flight of my choice the next day on my drive to the hotel while everyone else was stuck in line waiting to speak to an agent.

  7. I don’t engage with the airlines I fly (or with the ones I don’t fly for that matter) using social media….

  8. I only fly UA and I’ve tried to engage UA on both Facebook and Twitter with questions and complaints but nobody is home at United. The do not respond so it is like hollering down an empty tunnel.

  9. Take part in Facebook contests or contact Customer Care via Twitter, as it ensures speedy reply.

  10. Knowing that airlines monitor Twitter is an extra line of defense when things are going well on flight days. Thanks for the contest!

  11. i use twitter to comment on flights and cabin crew – just complimented the SAA crew this week

  12. I engage with airlines on social media by “liking” their page on Facebook and posting comments on their Facebook page. I also follow a number of them on Twitter.

  13. I don’t. I think I have a very limited Twitter account and have AA added but other than that I’ll let others do the work.
