Every year, Skytrax awards different airlines into different categories. The most important category from that is the World’s Top Ten Airlines. The rankings are different every year of course, but usually the top 10 Airlines stay in one position or the other between #1 – #10, though it’s not always the case!
So recently, the airline awards have been published for this year – 2016. And I’m really glad that my favorite airlines has once again, made it to the top! That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Emirates has once again, for the 4th time, become the #1 Airline in the world!
Here is the ranking list of Top 10 Airlines in 2016:
1. Emirates (UAE – Dubai)
2. Qatar Airways (Qatar)
3. Singapore Airlines (Singapore)
4. Cathay Pacific (Hong Kong)
5. ANA All Nippon Airways (Japan)
6. Etihad Airways (UAE – Abu Dhabi)
7. Turkish Airlines (Turkey)
8. EVA Air (Taiwan)
9. Qantas Airways (Australia)
10. Lufthansa (Germany)
In addition to that, Emirates has as usual, once again won the #1 award for having the best in-flight entertainment. Well, no surprise in that really because their award-winning ICE (Information, Communication, Entertainment) system is definitely the best I have experienced so far!
What other scores did Emirates receive this year? Let’s see…
6th in the world for their First Class, 4th for business, and 5th for economy. These are overall scores and well, I guess that makes sense pretty much…
Oh and their cabin crew scored as 10th best 😉
