Twitter gossip may be good, especially when it’s about airlines

Ssssh. The Twitter gossip about your favorite (and not-so-favorite) airlines is out.

Name: airrating.com

What it does: The website ranks airlines from 10 (highest) to zero (lowest), based on Twitter mentions of airline Twitter handles. The latest tweets for represented airlines are shown.

What’s hot: You’ll see myriad tips, gripes and gushing statements depending on what is happening in the skies when you look at the site. I particularly liked the tweets that showed photos — such as the one of a Singapore Airlines flight attendant helping a child into a seat and a selfie of a happy traveler on JetBlue. Travel tips both good and bad can be found if you click on the name of the airline and see its latest tweets. My favorite tips were flight deals I found sifting through tweets about Virgin America. As you can imagine, the lower the airline rating, the more humorous — or angry — the tweets can get. Happy flying, I mean snooping.

What’s not: The website might want to add a warning about adult language. When I was browsing the tweets from the worst airlines of the week, I found a few curse words I wouldn’t want my daughter to read. That said, I was chuckling.
