I read this and I was pretty shocked. I thought Star would have won. But they didn't, and I am shocked in a good way .
It just goes to show that number of airlines doesn't mean much at all. Remember, oneworld revolves around you. Even though Oneworld has not gone the way of having a hundred airlines like Star does and at Skyteam's pace, they should in a little it, Oneworld has been making a lot of interior improvements to the alliance by making new ticket packages, strengthening relationships in the alliance etc.
oneworld revolves around you.

Anyone else notice that this all took place in the London, with members voting from the UK? I bet a lot of those British voters would vote for the airline with the best service out of their airports, primarily London. Think about it, if the awards were voted for and assigned in Germany do you think that BA would win it? I doubt it. I bet it'd be Lufthansa and Star-Alliance.

No surprise here. It is quality, not quantity, that matters. And Iberia aside, the remaining seven oneWorld airlines are known for excellent service, and are in many cases considered the leaders in thier market. Although, yes, oneWorld does have some problems regarding the inability of AA/BA and AA/CX codesharing.

...anybody can call himself "independent airlines review institute" and then run around, ask 3 guys about their last flight, and..there it is!
Therefore you are completely right to mistrust any such "poll".
btw: I posted the same opinion of mine this morning, only a little shorter, and it got deleted. I strongly advise those who are suggesting deletions to the webmaster or to the webmaster himself NOT to overlook a few things, when deleting my post because it is "too short":
a few days ago I suggested deletion because a posting contained such niceties as "fu.. the EU" and "sh.t on the Europeans", by someone I won't denounce here, but who is well known for saying such things. It was not deleted. Oh well...
