Angry ELAL voted world's best airline!

According to the Elal newsletter (received by email), they have been voted by Apex 2011 as following:

1.Best overall passenger experience
2.Best overall passenger experience in region: Middle East.
3.Best inflight publication.
4.Best cabin ambiance.
5.Best inflight video.
6.Best ground experience

We all have to conclude that no other airline took part in this competition, and they are sending fake and misleading info to their clients, I find it DISGUSTING!

Also can anybody kindly explain the difference between no's 1&2?!

And Elal " voted" for her PAX as the best in the world.So we are
The best pax.
It's like a joke ...

I'm afraid as already mentioned by Lior you got the "wrong end of the stick" as they say.

It clearly says "thanks to you we have reached the finals"...

I might have voted them for best Inflight magazin perhaps...

I mean, LY's lounges are great, and the C class service is nice. But it ain't EK. Not even close.

This thing of APEX, is for companies having a very low self esteem, and trying to get recognition from an external source.
It's like a psychiatrist telling you that he loves you.

Will believe it when I see it coming from SkyTrax.

This is a big joke. LY doesn't come even close the big carriers.

I don't think EK can participate in this survey.. nor can any of the Middle Eastern carriers...
