Airline “snobs” are snubbing certain carriers to avoid particular types of people, according to a survey.
As many as 21 per cent of air passengers said they choose their flight bearing in mind the sort of people normally using a particular airline, the poll by travel agent sunshine.co.uk found.
A total of 2,265 UK adults took part in the survey. All had been on a holiday abroad in the past 12 months and had gone by air.
The cost of a flight was the main reason for choosing a particular airline, followed by flight times and luggage allowance but some 25 per cent said “bad experiences with other passengers” would put them off booking with a specific airline again.
