Ecco la top ten con i giudizi integrali di Airline Ratings,
1 Singapore Airlines.
One of the standouts in the industry for decades it has returned to its best with a new product, new aircraft and new innovative flights such as the Singapore-New York non-stop. Quite simply the airline is the Gold Standard
2 Air New Zealand
Just pipped out of top spot by Singapore Airlines, Air New Zealand is widely recognized as an airline that punches well above its weight globally and is a carrier to watch when it comes to innovation. It is one of the few airlines in the world to have an investment grade credit rating, is a staunch supporter of its home country and has been enjoying a healthy expansion in both its domestic and international markets. A class act!”
Its customer approval rating is at an all-time high and it continues to innovate with lie-flat beds on all its A330s that operate domestic and regional international flights. Its new 787 non-stop service from Peth to London is just a taste of what we can expect from the world’s oldest continuously operating and most experienced airline. A great performance
4 Qatar Airways
Great food, wine, product, and service proved the magic combination that delivered Qatar Airways to fourth spot and the dual awards of best business class and catering in the AirlineRatings.com 2019 Airline Excellence Awards.
The airline’s Qsuite is a first-class experience in business class. It leaves little to chance and our judges rated it as one of the best overall business-class products they had seen. It sets a standard to which some airlines can only aspire.
5 Virgin Australia
Virgin Australia has redefined the travel experience with its Economy X, Premium Economy, and standout Business Class. Add to that its cabin crew, which are the world’s best, and you have another airline punching well above its weight.

Emirates was one of the pioneers of IFE, and one of the first to install seatback videos in economy. Today its IFE platform ICE is in a class of its own.
