Best European Airline, A.net's Choice

Tue Feb 03, 2004 11:52 pm

A few days ago a topic asked you to name the best European airline you have ever flown. I tallied the votes and here are the results (for whatever they are worth):

1. British Airways (13 votes)

2. Swissair (8 votes)

3. Lufthansa (6 votes)

4. KLM (5 votes)

4. Crossair, Virgin, Air France (4 votes each)

5. Austrian (3 votes)

6. SWISS, SAS, Ryanair, Aer Lingus (2 votes each)

7. VLM, Easyjet, Lauda Air, SN Brussels, Tyrolean, CSA Czech Airlines, Air One, Wideroes (1 vote each).

Interesting. So we have Swissair, Crossair and SWISS.
If you add them, they even have more votes than BA.

Strange to see SK somewhere in the middle... I'd put them right after BA. And way above LH. And, yes, BA is the best...

KLM are very good. I' am flying with BA (for the first time) long-haul next week so I will experience why they have been voted A.net's best European airline.

What makes KLM so good? I am not saying they are bad because I have never flown them, but they seem to be behind most IFE and aircraft wise (ok there are the 777s). Is it AMS as much as it is KLM?

Could be Scottish Laddie - Schiphol is just b e a u t i f u l, and a joy to be there: possibly one of the best airports in the world. Schiphol BV is also responsible for revamping (parts of) other airports, including, if I'm not mistaken JFK. But this is off the thread. KLM is OK, BA is much better.
