The Top 10 Airlines in the World (Voted for By You)

Posted by One Comment

When planning a trip it’s difficult to choose which airline you should fly with. Oftentimes the choice is made purely by price (i.e. the cheapest airline wins). But what if millions of people could vote annually to determine the best airline in the world?

At the recent annual Skytrax World Airline Awards Qatar Airways was named as the world’s best airline, with Singapore Airlines and Asiana Airlines being voted second and third respectively.

CNNGO.com (part of CNN) reports:

“The winners are voted for by more than 18.8 million airline passengers from 100 different nationalities over 10 months.”

With a sample group that large and diverse, it’s hard to argue with the results!

“Cathay Pacific Airways and Thai Airways International came in fourth and fifth, respectively. Etihad Airways, Air New Zealand, Qantas Airways, Turkish Airlines and Emirates fill out the top 10 list.”

“Passengers also voted in 38 different categories of airline front-line services, from the best first-class cabins to the best economy-class meals.”

It’s interesting to see that most of the airlines on the top 10 list are based (or originated from) Asia and Australasia.

The rundown is as follows:

  1. Qatar Airways (Winner)
  2. Singapore Airlines
  3. Asiana Airlines
  4. Cathay Pacific Airways
  5. Thai Airways International
  6. Etihad Airways
  7. Air New Zealand
  8. Qantas Airways
  9. Turkish Airlines
  10.  Emirates
