Interesting, but Thankgiving is not world wide or even the same day - skews the results.

Not all cultures celebrate Christmas either. I don't think this skews the results. They simply took the busiest travel times of the year and analyzed the results. It doesn't matter if there's a holiday or not - those are the busy times.

Yeah but only for North America. Europe is pretty quiet during thanksgiving. Also Twitter is not as popular in Europe as in North America. Still and outstanding result for Air North, an airline that is pretty much unknown in other continents.

Putting an Airline ( Air North ) that has a total of 6 jets ( 4 = B737-500, 1 = B737-400, 1 = B737-200 Combi); into this survey is not a fair comparison to other airlines that have much larger fleets. Apples vs Oranges

Air France is 5th on the list of most loved Airlines.
Blast me !
Now I agree that this survey is skewed.

Truly were a great airline when I flew them. Zendocon didn't you say there would be an Air North release a while back??

On a side note, I saw hats they were selling in person on a social media site a while back. Several message w/ the social media person stated they only sold them in the Yukon but were looking for a website that would be up soon to sell things like this online. Unfortunately they wouldn't sell one to me without buying it from the soon to come website. That's well over a year ago and still waiting. Very disappointed.

Au contraire. It's even more impressive on Air North's side because that list is based on positive feedback. With a small airline to receive that much positive feedback is outstanding.

I was pushing for an Air North release. I have been for quite some time and will continue to do so.

Sorry to hear about the hat though. I may be able to help you out with that. What was the hat you were looking at?

It's great that Air North received positive feedback for such a small airline/fleet. I think that small airline should have been compared amongst other airlines that have fewer than 10 planes in their fleet. Apples to Apples.

Survey should have parsed it out based on the airline's fleet size. Cheers! T7

You are going to receive much more feedback in the negative side from airlines that fly thousands of passengers daily = American/Air Canuck/United/Delta; I'm sure that each of these major carriers fly more pax per day than Air North will fly in a month or more.

True, and I don't know what their criteria is or how the results were calculated. It would be interesting to see. No matter what, it's a nice feather in the cap to be recognized.

I give Air North = 2 big thumbs up! They are doing something right up there and it's great they are getting some much deserved recognition for all their hard work.

*fingers crossed*. The old livery would be good. But the new livery would be very cool. One of my favs by far. Had a good experience on AIr North and the recently retired 732. Saw the Hawker in Dawson as well. But that was after a trip to experience the sour toe.

The hat that I came across had the Air North tail on it. Not sure if they have others but I caught it in a post on Twitter I believe. Here's the pic on Instagram.

Maybe you have seen one before.

There's still one 732 left in the fleet - C-GANV. It's a 737-200 Combi with a gravel kit.
