Emirates, Qatar Airways, Singapore Airlines lead list of world’s top airlines

Emirates (800x505)There a lot of rankings of the best airlines. But it seems there’s only one that most carriers truly pay attention to. Those are the annual SkyTraxx awards, and they were released Tuesday.

You’ll notice none is based in North America, which is not really a surprise, as service standards here tend to lag behind the rest of the world. Asian and Middle Eastern carriers dominate the list. It’s also worth remembering that a good number of airlines on this list receive some sort of government support.

SkyTraxx says it it surveyed more than 18 million people before coming up with its list.

We should be getting the list of the top American carriers soon. Until then, perhaps it’s time to plan a trip on one of the airlines below.

  1. Emirates
  2. Qatar Airways
  3. Singapore Airlines
  4. ANA All Nippon Airways
  5. Asiana Airlines
  6. Cathay Pacific Airways
  7. Etihad Airways
  8. Garuda Indonesia
  9. Turkish Airlines
