TripAdvisor’s annual Travelers’ Choice Awards revealed the best airlines in the world for 2019. The ranking is based upon the reviews and ratings of TripAdvisor.
The Asian airlines dominated the top 10 lists while one UK airline made it to the list.
Singapore Airlines ranked right at the top for the second year running. A flyer wrote, “Singapore Airlines did not disappoint. With a great reputation, it sometimes can be a let down when you finally get to fly with them BUT NOT THE CASE. Excellent service and care. Great entertainment selection. Smooth travels.”
Qatar Airways was the second-best airline in the ranking. It also won the best business class award.
Eva Air from Taiwan was the third-best airline. A traveler wrote, “The seats are roomy, and are the most comfortable I have encountered outside of business class. The food also exceeded our expectations for airline fare. I really appreciated being able to cross 12 time zones without feeling knackered at our destination.”
Emirates was ranked as the fourth-best airline in the world. An Emirates traveler said, “I have silver and gold cards with two other airlines but the attention to detail Emirates applies to all its dealings is simply a class apart. A complimentary upgrade due to the flight schedule was very welcome. The service and food on-board first class in business. Emirates just do this end of flying better!”
Japan Airlines was the fifth-best airline. It is the largest airline in Japan while Dallas-based airline Southwest Airlines was ranked sixth-best in the world.
The Brazilian airline Azul was ranked in 7th position while Air New Zealand dropped by six places from last year’s ranking and ranked in 8th place. British budget airline Jet2.com was ranked 9th best airline in the world while at All Nippon Airways made it to the 10th spot.
