The top spot of best airline in the world goes to Emirates! Additionally voted as the most comfortable airline, the best value for money, airline with the best in-flight entertainment, and airline with the best check-in experience. An outstanding result for Emirates. Qatar Airways takes silver, whilst last year's winner, Turkish Airlines, has dropped a couple of places but still comes an impressive third.
New additions to the list this year are Thai Airways International, Azul Linhas Aéreas Brasileiras and Aeromexico, coming in 4th, 5th and 6th respectively.
Generous amounts of leg room, soft pillows and fully reclining seats are all factors that contribute towards a pleasant flight. Emirates tops the list of most comfortable airlines in the world with an average rating of 4.0 out of 5, followed closely by Qatar Airways.
Emirates boasts an award-winning entertainment system with on-board WiFi, live TV and over 4,500 channels of films, TV shows, music and games. More than enough to keep even the most fussy of travellers entertained. Our customers thought so too, rating Emirates the number one airline for in-flight entertainment. Qatar comes in at a close second with much of the same services as Emirates. However, whereas Qatar Airways has 30 minutes of free WiFi on board, Emirates offers 2 hours.
The price to quality ratio of an airline is the most important factor for many of our customers. Are you getting what you pay for? Is forking out for Business Class or a more expensive airline really worth it? The top 3 best value for money airlines are Emirates, Qatar Airways and Aegean Airlines.
