conducted by the Reputation Institute, a private research organization dedicated to advancing knowledge about corporate reputations, and

Using Harris Interactive's database of online respondents, 20,867 U.S. adults were asked to rate 25 airlines on over 20 items. According to their RQs, the top-ranked domestic and foreign airlines are:
Domestic Airlines RQ
