AirlineRatings.com, an airline products and safety rating portal, has compiled a list of the planet’s best airlines for 2018. The victory crown for the fifth consecutive time goes to Air New Zealand. Unlike other random, frivolous rating sites, the site examines several factors such as fleet age, investments ratings, passenger ratings, highlights offered by the airline, profitability, seating options, and safety.
Like all rankings and lists, this must not be taken as the final word. Travelers much do their own diligent research to find airlines that best suit their preferences. Always double check before booking to check if it fulfills your budget and needs to avoid unpleasant surprises. There are many subjective criteria while compiling a list like this, where personal preferences and biases may come into play, though the ratings are fairly reliable indications of what flyers can expect from these airlines. Ultimately, there’s no one size fits all approach when it comes to travel.
Another valuable evaluation done by AirlineRatings.com is picking a winner in each of the 20-22 airline categories. Here are the much awaited results of the survey listing the best airlines of 2018 that won flyers with their top quality services, constant innovations and best in class service.
1. Air New Zealand
Air New Zealand’s consistent development and innovation initiatives (with seats as well as service) have helped it make a mark. AirlineRatings officials have stated that Air New Zealand has been awarded the title of the world’s best airline for the fifth consecutive year for their exceptional financial performance, plenty of flyer centric innovations, environmental initiatives, employee motivation and young fleet.
Their path breaking innovations and initiatives have made them trendsetters in the aviation industry. Not a single American airline made its way into the prestigious list. Even in Europe, only Virgin Atlantic made the cut. Did you know that Air New Zealand doesn’t even have a first class? They have only business and premium economy, which makes it something of an anti-climax victory. Click On the Next Button to See Next.
