Singapore tops Emirates and Etihad in airline poll
Singapore Airlines has been voted the most popular airline for flights to the United Kingdom, according to a survey by CHOICE, while Emirates and Etihad also scored highly in the recent list.
Around 9000 members of the Australian consumer advocacy group took part in the survey, providing their opinion on a number of different areas, including cost, in-flight service, seat comfort, leg room, timeliness, food quality and check-in process.
Other carriers in the list including Japan Airlines, Thai Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Malaysia Airlines and Cathay Pacific.
Surprisingly, British Airways failed to make the top 10, after receiving a low score for both cost and in-flight service.
“CHOICE advises you check out at least three airlines before you book. There are a number of factors that can make a big difference to your holiday, including the in-flight service number of stopovers and what type of plane you’re on,” said CHOICE spokeswoman Elise Davidson.
“Passengers who have flown to the UK on the new A380s for example, say the aircraft have wider seats with a deeper pitch, which can make the difference between getting some sleep and being awake for up to 24 hours.”
