OAG Awards

Hot topics in years gone by, no one seems to have noticed them (or at least mentioned them in polite company) this year, even though the results are now more than 6 weeks old.

The big winners were Continental and Virgin. While Air Canada (along with AA, DL, and TW) was nominated for Best in North America, Continental cleaned up, receiving that award and four others:

"Continental Airlines, shortlisted for the overall title, took no fewer than five awards - the most of any airline - for best Trans-Atlantic Airline, Best Airline Based in North America, Best Business/ Executive Class Short Haul, Best Business/ Executive Class Long Haul, and Best Frequent Flyer Programme."

"In a nail-biting night of surprises, Virgin Atlantic scooped the main title of OAG Airline of the Year 2001, ending a three-year run by Emirates. Virgin also won two other categories."
