Ever wonder what the BEST airline is in the entire world so you can make your next flight aboard the best of the best?
Well, different airlines might be labeled as the “best” or “worst” for different reasons or by utilizing different standards. We’ve already taken a look at some of the best and worst airlines in the U.S. according to customer complaints, and we looked at what one website ranked as the best airline in the world. But now some new rankings have come in and we have our list of WINNERS.
The World Airline Awards have named their picks for the World’s Top 10 Airlines of 2022 (and have handed out other awards too). According to their website, the World Airline Awards are sometimes referred to as the “Oscars of the aviation industry.” Any airline in the world can be nominated, and the Award-winning airlines are voted for by customers.
Over 100 customer nationalities participated in the survey for 2021-2022 and over 350 airlines were included in the survey results. All in all, 13.42 MILLION eligible survey entries were counted in the final results, and those surveyed were asked for their opinions on a variety of topics including service friendliness, the airline website, seat comfort, the quality of meals, and more.
So just what airline won the top spot for 2022? Well, it’s actually no surprise here — for the SEVENTH TIME, Qatar Airways was named the World’s BEST Airline. Qatar Airways was also named the best airline in the world by AirlineRatings.com.
