What are the 10 best airlines in the World? Air travel is surely the best way to cover large distances in the shortest amount of time, yet the services offered by different airlines vary considerably. Although the actual time spent on an aircraft to get from point A to B is relatively the same, regardless of which company one chooses, not all airlines satisfy customers evenly.
Unlike what we have seen in our coverage of the 9 most expensive airline tickets you could ever buy, the following airlines have a lot more to offer. According to the 2014 World Airline Awards presented by Skytrax, the 10 best airlines in the world are determined by passenger satisfaction and not by ticket prices.
The survey conducted by Skytrax is quite unique, taking into account all cabin travel types (from economy to first class), and covers low-cost airlines, as well as their full-service counterparts. Out of a total of 245 airlines, we now present you the 10 best airlines in the world.
10. Best Airline in the World: Lufthansa
In 2014 the German flag carrier Lufthansa has finally made the top 10. The firm excels in the first class categories, ranking 6th amongst its peers in the luxury category, while offering the second-best first class lounges.
9. Best Airline in the World: Etihad Airways
Travelling to 96 destinations, the flag carrier of the Arab Emirates has recently dropped from 7th place in 2013, to 9th place in 2014. Nevertheless, the airline offers great service, with noise-reduction headphones for passengers, as well as special mood lighting in cabins.
