Notice how those are the only 10 choices available to vote for. If someone liked United's F for example, they couldn't vote for it. Another example: British Airways concorde is on there, but AF's isn't.
another thing: SQ is one of the best in it's five, but the first five are also very good airlines, so saying that it got 50% of the vote in its category(L-Z) is like saying that the Ford Windstar was voted the best minivan in its class in the T-Z category with more than 50% of the votes.

keep in mind this is from 2001...
Based on five criteria-complaints, lost luggage, comfort, denied boardings and on-time flights-America West ranks worst among the top ten carriers. Its score of 43.8 means it fared, on average, only 44% as well as the top airline in each category in the year 2000. Delta ranks best.
Consistently weak in most areas
Worst at honoring seat reservations
Worst at getting you to your destination on time
Average in most areas
Best at getting you to your destination on time

Exactly Lowfareair! Not a very fair poll, if you ask me.
The airlines chosen appear to be "our (Forbes') favorite first-class sections".
Found this article very interesting. It should be titled Which First Class Is Best? Singapore Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Atlantic Airways, American Airlines, British Airways Concorde, Emirates, Lufthansa, Qantas or South African Airways?

Great news for Singapore Airlines.
Regarding lowfareair's second paragraph, your point I think is quite clear, however there wasn't anything stopping people voting BA more for example, so even if say SIA was in a group of it's own with AA for example and another group with the other airlines, SIA would still come out on top.
