What kinds of award are these? How big? Who votes? How recognized?
Either way, congratulations!

Conde Nest is a quality travel magazine that is highly regarded within the travel industry. You should be able to pick up a copy from a decent newsagent such as WHSmiths.

It basically features all the top resorts/hotels/destinations etc. throughout the world and each year readers are invited to vote for whatever they think is best in each category.

Still a bit weird to mix airlines and hotels in the same Top 100 list...

Well, as I said, congratulations to Virgin! Hmmm... which airline do I notice always one position behind Virgin Atlantic?  Big grin

Why have Virgin won best entertainment award? When this V:Port that they harp on about is only fitted on a handful of planes?
