It's easy to complain about airlines, seeing how most squeeze every last dollar until boogers pop out of George Washington's nose. But not every airline prioritizes profit to the detriment of passenger service. In reality, many still sparkle with customer satisfaction -- and the best ones were just named.
According to Skytrax, a consumer-aviation website, Emirates ranks as the best airline in the world in the latest edition of the World Airline Awards. The Dubai-based airline jumped from the No. 5 spot in 2015 all the way to the top, thanks to having the Best In-Flight Entertainment and the Best First Class Comfort Amenities -- two other awards the airline won in the latest rankings -- along with improving in a bunch of additional categories.
"We are honored to be recognized by the prestigious Skytrax awards," said Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline. "Emirates has always put our customers at the heart of what we do, and we work hard to deliver the very best experience possible to our customers at every touchpoint, every day, all around the world."
