Every year Skytrax publishes the results of their Annual World Airline Awards survey, Most years since the launch of the BOOT I follow up by ranking my top airline choices against the Skytrax winners. [here are my 2006 rankings and 2008 rankings].
This year I have the added content weight of 10 airline seat reviews to draw on (all here). On to the list
Skytrax top ten Airlines of the Year 2010
- Asiana Airlines
- Singapore Airlines
- Qatar Airways
- Cathay Pacific
- Air New Zealand
- Etihad Airways
- Qantas Airways
- Thai Airways
- Malaysia Airlines
[notes SQ down a place, CX down two places and Qantas down 4 place]
The BOOT's top five airlines
- Cathay Pacific (up 3 places due to new herringbone seats)
- Virgin Atlantic (steady)
- British Airways (steady - despite crew troubles their flat bed seat is still a winner)
- Qantas (up a spot)
- Singapore Airlines (down 4 spots - I don't like the new seat. Too wide, not long enough).
Update (check out the Professor's rankings here)
Update 2 - why Cathay just beats Virgin Atlantic in my rankings in a post "Cathay Pacific vs Virgin Atlantic business class - the battle of the herringbone seats"
