Singapore Airlines replaces Qatar Airlines as the World’s Best Airline on Skytrax World Airline Awards that were released earlier today in London.
Qatar Airways was on the second place and won the award for the best business class.
Here’s the top 10 airlines (access the various lists on CNN’s website here):
1. Singapore Airlines
2. Qatar Airways
3. ANA All Nippon Airways
5. EVA Air
6. Cathay Pacific
8. Hainan Airlines
9. Garuda Indonesia
10. Thai Airways
Skytrax has some entertainment value but wouldn’t take them too seriously. Some argue that these awards are to some extend “pay for play”.
There are so many categories today that probably 30 or so airlines can claim that they are Skytrax winners on their specific field.
