Top 10 Best Airlines in the World

The Top Ten
1 Delta

I have flown both nationally (USA) and internationally over 20 times, and from my experiences, Delta is the best. They have amazing flights attendants, for starters. Second, the coach seats in a big, big, big Delta plane are the same quality as American Airlines' first class! They have free food, and WiFi as well. Delta is the best.

Emirates is the worst airline. Here's why. Firstly, the airline is trying to pamper you with their good food, and seats, and stuff, but they are not a true airline. They are the largest operators of the fuel guzzler A380, which will end production in 2021. At least Delta and even Singapore Airlines has a much more sophisticated fleet. Plus, Delta has the #1 TVs in the entire aviation industry. Gold plated seats can't beat that. So, if you want to be an AvGeek or environmentalist, do NOT fly Emirates, aka the airline that only the passengers who only care about their comfort fly on. Be a real AvGeek and fly any airline that's not Emirates.

Delta is America's Oldest Airline, and personally I think they have had the most experience, and it is a good airline. With plenty of flights around the United States, food that is just enough and almost always new! For the best experience, ride the bigger planes. ;). The only downside is the lack of movies, and luggage problems every now and then. But still, fly this airline!

How the heck is Delta not number 1? They are seriously the best airlines! They are SO kind and also have some great food! This summer I might be going to Arizona and my mom said we can only fly Delta.

2 Qatar Airways

Amazing airline. Everyone is so nice, and even in economy the service is really great. #1!

Amazing service, always on time. They have a great selection of onboard movies too!

Simply amazing, even in economic class.

Best in service. I love it

3 All Nippon Airways
4 Emirates

Emirates really is an amazing airline. At the time I am writing this, they have 84 A380's in their fleet, the most in the world. Their new aircraft also have big, good screens, even in economy. They have the best entertainment system in the world and their food is good. They are also good with kids as they have kid meals, activity packs and teddy bears. They have spacious comfy seats and business and first class even have their own mini bar. Also, their first class isn't just a good seat, you have your own private suites, and a shower + mini bar. They also have the biggest fleet out of all other airlines. They even have an onboard bar on all A380 aircraft. Emirates is amazing!

The service is amazing, the food is great, spacious seats, but what shocked me was when it crashed a few days ago, 18 cabin crew managed to get 282 people out of a burning plane. I have only ever been on emirates, as I wouldn't want to take any chances with other airlines. Love love LOVE emirates.

I love this Airline it's one of the best airlines in the world
Friendly warm cabin crew, nice food beautiful T.V. screens
I flew on Emirates from London to Islamabad via Dubai it was wonderful
I had Lamb mughlai as my main meal it was so yummy

If I ever ever get to go on an airline this good it's Emirates

Fly Emirates Hello Tomorrow

I haven't took any flight with Emirates, but judging from what most people say about Emirates and my father's experience on the Emirates I can see why Emirates deserved to be the best airlines.

5 Southwest Airlines

Southwest has always been my favorite airline to fly with. I've yet to encounter a rude employee (hopefully never will) and they always make my flight more enjoyable! There have been many times where the flight attendants made the whole cabin chuckle with jokes over the speakers.
Southwest doesn't have full meal options (breakfast, lunch, dinner) but they do provide snacks such as peanuts and crackers. They have an abundance of drink options, which is personally enough for me. They also do not provide premium seats but offer some of the lowest fares out of any company. I mean come on, free luggage!

My personal favorite airline. The staff was so polite, and our flight was barely delayed. Though they didn't have meal options, the snacks were nice and sweet. I will definitely be flying with them again.

I've never been on Southwest before, but it looks like a good airline in my opinion.

I love Southwest Airlines, they are the best!

6 JetBlue

New York's airline! Great staff, good amount of room, always on time, unlike American Airlines! There is wifi and a T.V. for each seat. JetBlue is very affordable and you get better for what you pay for.

Amazing mint 1st class, very nice and respectful/respectable flight attendants. I would recommend anyone flies on this airline! 1

Great entertainment, great service, great food (which is rare), great everything.

By far the best in the united states; excellent quality at a good price.

7 Singapore Airlines

Best airline yet. For all airlines it has the best economy seats yet. The flight attendants are so nice and there are great movie options. The food was pretty good too. We had this unique chicken or curry. For the breakfast, there was this very soft bun we had and it came with a nice cup of this dairy product that was kinda similar to milk. They also offered us Coca Cola with a few traditional biscuits. Very nice. On airlines, I never sleep because seats are very uncomfortable, but these seats were made out of real leather and had cozy blankets and pillows so I was able to sleep almost half the flight from LAX to Singapore which was 13 hours! So this is a great airline. Singapore was a very nice trip. I recommend this airline to anyone who never traveled to Singapore. This is the best and should be better than Emirates.

You can't beat the Singapore first class suites.
I suppose that Emirates is pretty dam good but I much prefer Singapore airlines, oh and their flight attendants are HOT!

Beautiful flight attendants that cater to your every need, comfy and modern seats, one of the youngest and safest fleets in the world, what more could you ask for?

Emirates is widely overrated, in my opinion it's a bit tacky to be honest whereas singapore airlines is like a hotel in the sky, the quality is outstanding.

8 United Airlines

Honestly this is just a typical airline. My only favorite about this is the fact that they took Rhapsody in. Blue as their theme song.

Great airline I went to New York on a 777 then got a connecting flight on a 737 to Orlando great service!

This airline is awesome! And if you hate it, then you're as silly as Justin Bieber!

This depends on how you measure how good the airline is.

9 Etihad Airways

Last year when I went to London, I flew from where I live to Abu Dhabi with Ethihad airways on business class. It was GREAT. You get your own mini bar with drinks and snacks in it, the blanket you get for sleeping is so cozy (in case you didn't know in business class your chair can go back to a full bed). The food was delicious! I had a stake with potato and salad for dinner on board the A380, and at night time, I shut the blinds, put the chair back to a bed and went to sleep. It was a 12 hour and 10 minute flight and the last 6 hours of the flight, it was dark. I got 5 hours of sleep. Etihad is by far the best.

Etihad airways has the best first class in the world 2nd best business and 5th best economy. I flew from Abu Dhabi to London last year in business class on an a380 and it was amazing. Plus, they have the additional class called residence with is a 3 bedroom suite. Etihad are by far the best.

Great, great airline! I flew from London to Abu Dhabi and was pleased to see how great it was! Etihad wins hands down!

I think it should be in second before emirates. It was great to fly from India to abu dhabi, great journey

10 Turkish Airlines

Turkish airlines has gotta be my favorite. Delicious food, friendly and responsible staff, and so much more. This airline is definitely better than united airlines or southwest airlines, and it should be higher on this list.

Relaxing flight, kind flight attendants, great food, good economy class, clean planes, nice plane interior. Turkish is the best I have flown with so far.

How is this not higher. Turkish is one of the best airlines. They have a chef on board and they have good service.

Should be in the top 5s. I just recently when with them and their service is even better than Qatar Airways. And I got a cheap ticket.

The Contenders
11 American Airlines

I don't know why people hate American.
Their new planes and seats are great. Be lucky and try to find a flight with either 77W or A32T because those planes are bomb. Food and cabin are great.
You'll be very unlucky if you have the old 757, because they have the old big leather seats (first class) and terrible T.V.. Food is still good.

How United is above this is beyond me. American is my favorite because it was the airline responsible for the best flight I ever flew. Flew from Nashville to Los Angeles.

I love American Airlines because they have good food, good service, no turbulance, and I fly AA everywhere

12 British Airways

I flew to Japan on British airways and got lots of attention very nice crew I would definitely recommend.P. S the have there very own dedicated terminal at Heathrow terminal 5.

Amazing airline and one of the oldest in the world! They have the most 747s in the world and also have 12 a380s on order!

I fly them cause I'm British! They are great!

13 KLM
14 Alaska Airlines

Love this airline! I flew with Delta, and the seats were very uncomfortable and the food was terrible. I started flying with Alaska, and I have never gone back. I have had some amazing flights, and I will continue to fly with them. They treat their staff pretty well too.

Alaska Airlines are the best! the flights aren't bumpy and they give you those yummy little plane biscuits

Why is this not number one? Is the best Airline ever!

15 Qantas

Qantas, Oldest Airline on Earth, Since 1922, Never Crashed, has got 12 A380's and now has the best economy and Business class I the A380. In Economy, they have self serve bars filled with snakes and drinks, they also have private offices for Business class. Qantas, is by FAR the best

I always get on a Qantas flight if I want to travel somewhere instead of Jetstar. It's one of my favourite airlines. Hasn't had a fatal accident since 1951 and even though I have a fear of flying, I always feel safe on Qantas.

Amazing! Never crashed, cool name, long flights, great comfort, and most of all, an awesome entertainment system with every movie imaginable and games!

Although it's the only airlines that nearly crashed an a380 due to a recent a380 nosedive and engine failure in 2010. Otherwise safe and nice airline

16 Cathay Pacific

Cathay Pacific is always fully booked. If you don't want your flight to be full, plan early and book early and also stay in Premium Economy (if you are seated on economy) because it's comfy.

When I took flight from Surabaya to Hong Kong by Cathay Pacific as a nine years old girl, I really enjoyed the entertainment and the service inside the aircraft.

Best airlines on earth! Unbelievable service! Even got Captain Marvel!

I always ride Cathay pacific from Manila to Hong Kong and it has a T.V. where they show my favourite movies of all time

17 THAI

This one is a nice one

Love this airline

18 Japan Airlines

Very respectful staff and willing to help as much as possible. Comfortable flight as much as possible. On time and have Never had a problem traveling to and fro from US to OKINAWA.

Very kind and the food was great.

My favorite honestly

19 AirFrance Air France, belonging to the airline holding company, Air France-KLM, is the privately owned flag carrier of France. Air France’s headquarters are located at their global hub, Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport.
20 Lufthansa

Lufthansa connects the world all ending up in Frankfurt. They have hundreds of locations around the world in which they fly to and from. I have had nothing but a good experience on Lufthansa. The only small glitch with the company is they occasionally strike every other summer. My father is also one of their pilots so what can I say life is great onboard Lufthansa.

Supposed to be perfect.

Nothing of that. The only time I fled with them (Buenos Aires to Frankfurt) couldn't turn my seat back, male flight attendants weren't a bit friendly, the food smelled very strange and I was the last passenger boarding plane despite I was the first checkin in. Never explained me why. Other person would make a Skandal for that.

21 Air Canada

Best Airline by far - nicest Flight attendants I have ever met.

You can get discounts if the plane is late.

22 Asiana Airlines

Great food compared to Emirates and very comfortable seats in both business and economy.

Economy class is better

23 Aeroflot
24 Frontier

Frontier is good for national travels, but they aren't the best. They do have cheap tickets, but the service isn't all that great.

25 Air New Zealand

This honestly one of th best airlines and would be in the top if it was more well known, the service is great and the staff are amazing. You also don't pay anything for extras like food PR baggage

New Zealand and all over!

I just went on there 747 and it was real bumpy but I liked it and they give you free food
