Some travelers see boarding a plane as an essential part of their travel experience, while for others it’s just a way to get from A to B.
Unless you suffer from a fear of flying, taking to the skies should be a fun and exciting adventure. And the better the quality of the airline you choose, the more likely you are to have a pleasant flight experience.
But which airlines should you choose?
AirlineRatings.com has released its annual list of the world’s best airlines.
The Airline Excellence Awards are judged by five editors with more than 180 years of combined experience in the travel industry.
12 key factors are taken into account when evaluating the quality of an airline. These include the age of your fleet, passenger review scores, range of product offerings, and staff relationships.
Air New Zealand was voted the best airline for 2023 in the rankings, thanks to its “commitment to excellence in all facets of its business”, but it wasn’t the only airline to garner attention for all the right reasons, including a few. which are closer to home.
Here are 5 American airlines that ranked among the best in the world:
Delta Airlines received the ‘Excellence in Long Haul Travel’ award for its North American routes. They were also rated as one of the top 25 premium airlines in the world.
Delta Airlines is America’s most awarded airline and is regularly recognized for its commitment to excellence in areas such as fleet quality, passenger experience and customer service.
