Some airlines stand out from all the others that are transporting people through the skies. These are airlines that offer more than just decent seat and free meals to their passengers. Every year, Travel & Leisure holds the World’s Best Awards survey so that readers can share experiences on the top hotels they have stayed in, the best resorts in different parts of the world, the best island cruise lines, the best spas that managed to reduce their aches and pains and the best airline that are plying the skies.
The following factors were used by readers to rate international airlines – cabin comfort, in-flight service, customer service and the overall value of the experience. Some carriers have managed to take the lead from their competitors because they have made efforts to enhance their passenger’s experience. Instead of merely reviving the golden age of air travel, they have surpassed the expectations of their passengers.
According to Travel & Leisure reader Anne Star she felt like royalty on the Emirates. The Dubai-based airline certainly deserved the 2nd position on the World’s Best Awards because of its chauffeur service to and fro the flight, the upscale airport lounges and the synchronized flight attendants who made sure they wore matching lipsticks.
The third place in the world’s awards went to international airline Qatar Airways that allows its passengers to choose from a list of fine wines that will please their palette. The airline employs the services of an experienced sommelier to ensure that each wine is rich and ripe enough to please the travelers.
Singapore Airlines has always been the number one on the World’s Best Awards because every passenger is treated as a top-tier flier. One of its services allows passengers to choose a main course from a lengthy menu before they board the plane. There is no exception because even those on the economy class enjoy a good experience.
In order to enhance the comfort and convenience of air travel, a good option will be to book an airport chauffeur prior to the flight. This will save you from the hassle of calling a taxi at the terminal to take you to your destination.
