2015 Mid-Year Rankings

2015 - Mid-Year Rankings: US Airlines

Southwest Airlines manages to top our airline list – a position it has never abandoned since we created this list. The low-cost airline showed its love for another state this year as it painted its latest state livery in the colors of the Missouri flag, as part of its long-running program to represent different states of the union.

These brands were rated using YouGov BrandIndex’s Buzz score which asks respondents, “If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?”

Buzz scores can range from 100 to -100 and are compiled by subtracting negative feedback from positive. A zero score means equal positive and negative feedback.​

The Buzz Rankings chart shows the brands with the highest average Buzz scores between January and June 2015. The Buzz Improvers chart ranks the brands with the highest increase in Buzz comparing years 2014 and 2015. Both scores are representative of the general population.

All Buzz scores listed have been rounded to a single decimal place, however, we have used additional precision to assign ranks.
