Skytrax vs the BOOT - who do you agree with as the World's Best Airline

This year at the Skytrax 2008 World's Best Airline awards was Singapore Airlines' year (once again). Let's see how the Skytrax top 5 compared to the BOOT.

The Skytrax top 5 Airlines:
1. Singapore Airlines
2. Cathay Pacific
3. Qantas
4. Thai Airways
5. Asiana

The BOOT top 5 Airlines
1. Singapore Airlines
2. Virgin Atlantic
3. British Airways
4. Cathay Pacific
5. Qantas

Amazed to see that neither BA nor VS made the top ten in the Skytrax list. As hard a time as I give Qantas - I agree that they deserve the award for the Best First Class Lounge. The Sydney lounge is in a class beyond any other I have visited. It is with some interest that I note that Qantas is nowhere to be found on the list of best inflight entertainment. It seems a minimum criteria for the award is that the inflight entertainment system works
