Flying is more of a means to and ends then a favorite past time. Sure we can make it that little bit easier by getting some of the best travel gadgets for long haul flights. But if you are travelling on an airline that is absolutely rubbish then no matter how many gadgets you have, your experience will be far from ideal.
Hopefully everyone reading this list has had the pleasure of flying on one of the many Airlines this world has to offer. But rather than you having to spend a lot of money finding out what are the Top Ten airlines in the world. The Quick Ten taken the guess work out of it for you and compiled a list based on attributes such as food, value for money, entertainment, service, leg room, and not crashing.
For the team at The Quick Ten deciding on number 1 was easy and based on numerous flights using them to ferry us across the Atlantic and the Pacific!
Singapore Airlines – Simply the best service, best planes and best food. A hands down winner on so many levels.
Thai airways – The same amazing service as Singapore and food which is actually half descent…for airplane food.
Emirates – Some of the newest planes in the industry and constantly looking to improve and actually implement changes unlike some other airlines like maybe British Airways hint hint.
Air New Zealand – Their quirky attitude to marketing the business also translates into success on their service. An all round winner with some innovation to match e.g. the cuddle class
Malaysian Airlines – They make it to number 5 purely based on service and value for money. No frills but definitely no spills.
Virgin – There service, food and entertainment is top notch but their airfares are over priced with minimal added value between the most major airlines.
Cathay Pacific – Once one of the darlings of the sky but of late has started to suffer and whose fleet is in need of an up grade. The staff are what make the company.
Qatar Airways – An Up and comer and trying to emulate the success of Emirates. Keep an eye on them as their fares are very sharp…but food is not so flash.
Qantas – The planes are fine, the food is OK but the staff are simply some of the worst in the business and massively effect the scoring in this list.
British Airways – Much like Qantas everything is OK with their food, space, entertainment but their whinging staff really leave a lot to be desired with this majestic dinosaur of the sky.
