Alaska Airlines was named best regional airline in North America, and Sun Country Airlines topped Allegiant Air, Frontier Airlines, and Spirit Airlines as the best low-cost airline in North America.


United Airlines only walked away with one award: Best business class lounge in North America. Both 55th-ranked JetBlue and 82nd-ranked American Airlines were given zero accolades at the World Airline Awards.

I don't see how Sq Should win any awards.  Special meals are horrible. Meal portions are inadequately small On a 16+ hour flight SFO-SIN, the snack options in business class are granola bars, chocolate, and potato chips The first two meals are served in the first 8-9 hours of the flight, leaving you starving as you arrive in Singapore because of their wonderful "snack menu" for the last 7 hours or so of the flight pathetic.

I would travel with Turkish at least just to see that amazing airport each time. Piece of art in my opinion.
About Qatar, don't really understand why it's still in top 3

skytrax has no credibility whatsoever , it's a pay for rating. They charge their customers consulting fees & then rate them accordingly.

Best for what? On-time performance? Food in premium cabin? Seat in economy? Value? Operational reliability? Size of network? Ground service? Completely pointless award when the criterias are opaque, no metric, not even a text blurb to sort of explain their decision for each airline. Even Michelin and World's 50 do a better job than this.

Anyone who places ANA, Air France or Cathay above EVA Air cannot be taken seriously.
