Quoting TinkerBelle (Thread starter):
Best Transpacific Airline: United Airlines
Nominees: American Airlines, Cathay Pacific Airways, Qantas Airways, Singapore Airlines

Interesting choice. Is it only awarded according to service? Or does it include the network? UA may lag in service (at least on its B744), but has a decent network in Asia for a non-Asian carrier.

AA Best Economy/Coach???

This is the most questionable award I have ever seen. The fact that AA didn't widely advertise about this award speaks for the fact that AA's Economy products are far from best.
