Top 10 Best Airlines


The Top Ten

1 Emirates

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.

Emirates offers a very good price. The service is very good. The food is great, and the new spacious airbus 380 the airline is the best.

Great service, great crew, connection timings, a lot of destination and still a lot more to come

Amazing. This list is exactly right Emirates 1st Qatar 2nd and 3rd Singapore airlines!

3 Singapore Airlines

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! - tedmond9

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? - boeingrules

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.

It's just better, you just have to experience it.

4 Etihad Airways

Etihad has the best first class. Should be in the top 3.

Best one just see the residence

I Really Mean Wow

They give us good food!

5 Southwest Airlines

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.

They give free food and drinks and they have internet so you can track your flight and the trays can actually hold a drink (unlike frontier)

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! - foxbani

Cheaper flights than lots of airlines

6 JetBlue

this is amazing! I mean, you get free TV so you don't even need to pack entertainment since it's already built in!

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.

190 dollars

7 British Airways

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!

Not better than emirates but still good some random guy put this in contenders in top ten worst airlines - favouredlist314

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

Never had a bad experience unlike most other on this list

8 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.

When I took a flight from Surabaya to Hong Kong by Cathay Pacific, I really enjoyed the service ad the entertainment inside the plane.

To be honest, I hate this airline! It's always fully booked and I keep on getting bumped off (meaning I don't get onboard the flight).

9 Turkish Airlines

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. - arthurevans_04

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

#23? What a joke! Turkish was ranked 4th in the latest airliners ranking. Their service is the best

This airlines is the BEST its food is good it’s seats are good even the service is good oh sorry it is SUBLIME OR EVEN FANTASTIC

10 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 - s9111472

QANTAS. QANTAS never crashed. Oh that's gonna do me a lot of good because QANTAS doesn't fly to Los Angeles out of Cincinnati, you have to get to Melbourne! Melbourne, Australia in order to get the plane that flies to Los Angeles!

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

Great service great crew great food

The damn moies - StarDusJR

14 EVA Air

It has one of the best business class!

15 United Airlines

Looks like someone responded to my comment!
I could go on and on about how you post false information about them and even me, so I'm gonna put the problems in a list!

Everything wrong with your comment (in a CinemaSins style rant):

Problem 1) I did not ride United in the 20th Century, I rode them recently a few times! I've never had a bad experience with them!

Problem 2) "Fly The Obnoxious Skies" is probably the worst parody slogan I have ever heard! If your goal is to be a comedian, then you really need to reconsider all of your life decisions up to this point!

Problem 3) Speaking of my flight, none of the staff were rude to me! I've never had a bad experience with United! United rarely kicks people off flight (same goes for any airline). The owner of the rabbit who died on that United flight is blaming the airline, but in reality it's her fault for taking her rabbit on the flight in the first place! Same for the owners of that dog who also died on a ...more

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

LOL I would kill everyone who hates this airline! - MichaelAftonUTTP

To the person that said “LOL I will kill everyone who hates this airline” Probally rode this airline in the 20th Century. Now, United is like “Fly the Obnoxious Skies” instead of “Friendly”. Staff is very rude, kicking people off flights, and forcing animals in overhead bins. Planes are outdated, and seats are pretty small. Plus, it’s a free country, and we should respect other people’s opinions. Don’t kill everyone because they hate United.

16 Virgin America

Literally the best airline if you're flying around the US! Great service, comfortable seats, and many free amenities to make your flight more entertaining!

How is this so low in the list! Love everything about it! - bluesheep23

Oh yeah. There is great legroom! My legs weren't cramped.

Rip vx 2007-2019 we will miss you and your safety music video

17 Asiana Airlines

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

Economy class is better - SpencerJC

18 Delta

Delta is America's Oldest Airline, and personally I think they have had the most expirience, 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 expirience, ride the bigger planes. ; ). The only downside is the lack of movies, and luggage problems every now and then. But still, fly this airline!

Never take this airline when going on a domestic flight because you have to pay for your food. The worst thing is that happens in a six hour flight from New York to Los Angeles.

Always on time. The services are even better when you become the skyline member. I only booked my ticket from Delta not any other airlines.

This is the best airline. Everyone on flight staff and in airport are so nice and helpful should be top five

19 AirTran Airways
20 Air Canada

The flight attendants are awful, they give me yucky food!

World Class, Cute and elegand hostess, best pilots, service and food

22 Frontier

23 Korean Air

Should be #3 the best airline I used so far

Best of the best should be #3

Should be in the top 5

Great expensive - SpencerJC

24 Philippine Airlines

As a filipino, this is a horrible airline. The food is really bad and there is no T.V. on a long flight. And also the flight is always delayed, I'm serious. Whenever I go on an international fight, I take cathay pacific, delta and emirates. Take those three airlines instead of this.

Really awesome airline and service but bad schedule. Not to criticize them or anything but they usually have delays and they don't have good schedules. But overall awesome airline. Go Philippines

Best airline ever. The flight attendants were nice and good food and good service.

The worst airline ever!

I have always had good luck with Alaska Airlines from SEA to SJC Not alwys on time but that does not matter especially on a Saturday

27 Malaysia Airlines

They won't be in much longer due to the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet.

How many planes have gone missing now? - Haumea

Best cabin crew ever

Mh117 and mh370 what is that

28 Garuda Indonesia

Once they were really dull and so unsafe but that was on their vast times; now they're a really good airline and in no time will stand tall in the airline market

Hell yeah! Best economy and best cabin crew!

It's real rank was on top ten...

Nice Airline. Full service and IFE availablity. The cabin crew was very nice.

29 Aeroflot

31 Virgin Atlantic

Virgin is awesome - you can choose what to watch and listen to whenever you want, plus, they've got cool uniforms

This is the only airline I have ever been on and I love it!

32 Air New Zealand

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

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

35 US Airways
36 Swiss International Air Lines

Just took a flight with them and I got fantastic service, TVs in the back of each seat so you can watch any movie you want, or music, or games and even T.V. shows. The airplane food itself was also very good, surprisingly, as I'm not a fan of any airline food, the food was very good. The seats were comfortable and the chocolate we got at the end was great.

37 Jet Airways

The best airline of India, then best in the Universe.


I went to Mumbai in Jet airways and the crew, food and the movies on the T.V. were AMAZING! This is the best airline after EMIRATES! And went I returned to London Heathrow from Delhi it was the same...WONDERFUL

38 Royal Jordanian

Very safe reliable airline! However, the crew is not very friendly

Love this airline too - arthurevans_04

39 Air One
40 Alitalia

NO NO NOOO! The flag carrier of Italy is not one of the best airlines. Me and my family had to go to New Delhi, India and we had a connecting flight. London Heathrow to Rome to New Delhi. Heathrow to Rome was bad. The take off was literally TORTURE! All they gave us was a tiny packet of biscuits that tasted like they expired 2 years ago. Not much variety of drinks as well but the juice was nice. We waited for 4 hours when arriving in Rome and then it was time to board our flight to Delhi. It's a 6 hr flight and the space in the plane was tiny. The T.V. wasn't clean and there weren't any variety of movies. There were mostly European movies. They gave us earphones for the T.V.. When the food came, I expected it to be nice as it was Italian food but when I opened the foil over the plastic plate kind of thing, it was this green pasta. Along were some nice fruits. Later, my head was hurting then I went to the air hostess for some medicine, she said she'll bring it over. She brings it after ...more

I love Alitalia because is low cost but luxury

41 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.

42 WestJet

I love westjet! They have the most polite, funny flight attendants great service reliable fleet of 737s, and good destinations. We always fly westjet to Cuba!


43 Easyjet
44 Thomson Airways
45 Virgin Australia

Should be higher

Great airline

46 Hawaiian Airlines

Carrying approximately 5 million passengers a year, Hawaiian Airlines provides high-frequency jet service daily to seven destinations on six Hawaiian Islands and weekly service to the South Pacific destinations of Tahiti and American Samoa. In North America it provides daily service to Hawaii from Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Portland, Oregon.

I live in Maui and Hawaiian Airlines is the best going place to place

I love Hawaiian airlines when we was going to maui from san francisco (sfo) we was delayed and had to go to oahu first... ……TOTALLY WORTH IT

47 Bangladesh

Very comfortable seats

United airways (BD) Ltd.

48 KLM

Good network, good service, good home airport Schiphol.

49 Jetstar
50 SriLankan Airlines

It's the best
