I pretty much agree, I think they have it right with the top three, not necessarily in that order, but those are 3 VERY good airlines... I would have thought Ansett would have ranked higher, but then again, their world class international service is, at present, very limited.

However, you have to take these with a grain of salt, there is only a very small number of reports in comparison to the number of total passangers, so it is not a very accurate survey, and could easily be skewed by a few 'too good' or a few 'too bad' experiences

Singapore and Cathay Pacific should be 1 and 2 respectively. I dont know anying about Air New Zealand. Qantas and Ansett Australia should have higher rankings as well. I disagree with Asiana being 7th... that's a very high ranking for such a poor airline. I'm not a fan of Korean Air either, but I think they should have a higher ranking than Asiana.

NEFlyer's revised list:
1. Singapore
2. Cathay Pacific
3. Qantas
4. Ansett Australia

NEFlyer - Despite its comparitive small size, I would put Air New Zealand at least lever with Qantas, if not higher. Unfortunately, there are a few behind the scenes problems in management righ now, the whole integration deal is proving to be quite a strain! Still, they are going to pull through, especially with SIA behind them.

They are a very good airline! I suggest you try them out if you ever get a chance, I am sure you wont be disapointed (they will be installing PTVs in economy in the near future)

I think the best airlines is Cathay Pacific, Sigapore Airlines. JAL is not good, the seat is not comfortable.

The thing i cannot understand is how can you guys be saying that AirNZ is not good when you have not flown with them?? Even though i have only flown a few there. AirNZ and SQ are two very good airlines (Don't know about CX- never flown them.)

So sorry but i cannot say anything about this survey.

Oh phew, I though SIA wasn't in the top 10.

I would have to disagree with that personally. I have only flown with three airlines in the Asian Pacific region so here they are

1) Singapore Airlines
2) Cathay Pacific
3) Vietnam Airlines (I would rather put that in 2 but I just can't)

My list would be in the following revised order

2/ Air New Zealand
3/ Cathay Pacific
4/ Singapore Airlines
5/ Ansett Australia
6/ Korean Air
7/ EVA
8/ Asiana
9/ JAL
10/ Qantas

Interesting comments. I agree Ansett in particular is undervalued.

I strongly agree with TG992's new order. But i still think Air New Zealand should be at the top. So what.. they dont have ptv's, i think that they are one of the best airlines out there!! Very great service, is what i heard from a friend. And plus, NEFlyer, Asiana is not a poor airline, they are one of the fastest growing airlines out there. But still, i think that Korean Air should be #5, they do have nice F/A's.

These are what airlines I have flown in the asia/pacific region. Air New Zealand, Ansett New Zealand, Ansett Australia, Qantas, Singapore, Thai Int Airways, and Air Pacific.

This is how I would rank these airlines.

1. Air New Zealand
2. Singapore Airlines
3. Air Pacific
4. Thai Int Airways
5. Ansett Australia
6. Ansett New Zealand
7. Qantas

Hard decision on #1 and #2 but there's something about ANZ that makes them stand out, cant descibe it though.

Qantas is definately the worst airline I have ever flown on. Never again.

OUT!

4. Eva
5. ANZ

I can´t believe that none of you guys has mentioned MAS - although I haven´t flown them yet. But from all I´ve haerd about them they have a very good reputation, similar to that of Cathay or SIA, despite of their financial troubles.

Having flown on SQ TG Asiana and KE, I think the list is pretty close. It just depends on what you are ranking on. Asiana is a very good airline and has come a long way in such a short time. Sure KE is nice, but their safety record leaves much much to be desired.

Having flown on both JAA and JAL. Their service is only on par. I can't rank them in top 5. Same holds true for Qantas.

Personally, I would vote Thai and EVA to be 4&5.

EVA used to have the best service out there. But it has been on a decline (old fleet). Hoepfully with introduction on 777LR and A330, the service will recieve an upgrade soon.

EVA really needs new airplane to compete against CX and SQ.

I just flown on EVA last week from SFO to TPE. Even though EVA is among the 1st to introduce PTV. But the interior is outdated. I want sleeper seats.

For International in the region, it would have to be:

Ansett International.

They cream the others, and are continually winning awards for their inflight services in both eco and business.

*yay* (Hopefully the evil step monster will keep her evil claws away from AN Intl.)

plus, NEFlyer, Asiana is not a poor airline, they are one of the fastest growing airlines out there.

I dont really care how fast they're growning. Their inflight services/entertainment/overal services are poor for an international airline. I'm not sure how long ago you have flown with OZ or KE for that matter, but I flew with OZ in August 2000, and I have no plans of ever flying with again. I fly over 75,000+ miles/year and with the amount of flying that I do, I would hope that the services offered on international flights are at least decent with edible food and good entertainment(ie. SQ, CX, AC, UA).. I did not find that with OZ.. My flight SEL-LAX-SEL.. left me extremely bored and hungry, the food was horrible.. the inflight entertainment was poor, not only was it poor, but one of my segemtns had a busted headphone socket.

I stand by my original comment about Asiana and don't plan on changing my mind. I know people who are fans of OZ and/or KE, one of those happens to by mom who flies KE monthly.

Thai Can't Be The Best!

Tue Jan 30, 2001 11:57 am

I use to be a great fan of Thai Airways and tried them out three times. I just got off a Thai 773 on Monday (29-01-01) and I was sooooooooooooooo disappointed to say the least!
One of the worst thing about Thai is that a lot of the Cabin crews cannot understand English and they frown at you when they don't understand. I know that Thailand doesn't speak English as it's official English but in an airline so famous for it's inflight service I think the flight attendants should speak better English.
And they don't have PTVs in Y Class which puts them so much behind the others (Even China Airlines and Sri Lankan Airlines has PTV in Y Class on certain aircrafts... and TG doesn't have them in their newest fleet (773s) ??) I just have to say that Singapore Airlines is much better than TG in Y Class!! (I've just flown SQ on 14 and 21st JAN TPE-NRT KIX-TPE)
Thai simply is not the best....

NeFlyer: but I flew with OZ in August 2000, My flight SEL-LAX-SEL..

Omg.. are you serious??? I went to Korea in August too!And I found their service extremely nice. They even gave me 2 Playing cards and even an extra blanket to take home. They also gave free "Asiana Toys" like free dart boards. I dont understand why you felt so bored. I saw Romeo Must Die, and Return to Me. They even had Menus in Economy class, so if we wanted something special, we could of just called the flight attendent and ordered it FOR FREE. Maybe you should of just asked for stuff that can make you have a more enjoyable flight. Or maybe YOU SHOULD OF ASKED A FLIGHT ATTENDENT TO BE MOVED TO ANOTHER WINDOW SEAT IN THAT FLIGHT. I am not B/S ing this either. And All of the things i got were under a request... Well I understand that you really hated their service but if you're in another position like this.. dont wine to us and tell us that you hated that airline, ask them to do something, or just get the f/a's your attention, so that you will make YOUR $800.00 FLIGHT WORTH IT.

Yes, they did show those movies, but was I able to watch those movies? No, I was not able to watch either movie, as my seat had a busted headphone socket. I did mention the problem to the FA, and her response was *FA shakes her head and walks away*.

I ran into a similar incident on KE during the Northwest strike. I was seated in "Prestige Class", which is KE's business cabin on a brand new 777-200 in '98. The lights, the PTV's, the audio, the video.. and anyting electrical did not work on our entire row. I believe it was row 1A. I complained as did my dad, who happened to be sitting next to me and little did the FA's do about that problem.

I understand that many find OZ and KE to be good airlines with good inflight services. There are also those who found their service to be unsatisfactory.

I am NOT whining to you "guys" at airliners.net about KE or OZ. I am merely telling my opinion of the airline. Message boards/forums were made for opinions, and I am expressing mine. I am only telling you about my experiences with OZ and KE, because I received poor service several times from both carriers.

For the time being, I will stick with Air Canada and their partners(SQ, UA).

I would have had Ansett, Qantas, SIA, and Cathay as the top ones. I dont know how JAL beat Qantas, on JAL/Qantas code shared flights, the JAL a/c have not been anywhere near as nice as Qantas's a/c are. But they do have good service and they operate nicer a/c on their more productive services.

Malaysia Ailrines?

Wed Jan 31, 2001 1:04 am

I can't believe Malaysia Airlines, MAS is not in the top 3. I sat on their flight from New York to Sydney v.v. on their B747-400s and B777-200s and their service was superb. Great inflight entertainment in economy with your PTV's. Their seat pitch was 33-34" with a width of 17". That's a lot better than Sinagpore Airlines. In fact, their air stewardesses are more freindly than Singapore Ailrines, and Singapore Airlines tend to be racist, serving whites better than the rest!!! Their flight is always on time if not, earlier than schelduled time.

Air New Zealand is not too bad, same goes with Cathay Pacific. Singapore Airlines has the most cramp seats!! About the rest, can't say much as I had not been on their aircraft before or not been flying with them for a long time.

Following that post I must defend Singapore Airlines

1) They have one of the world's best, if not the best, in-flight entertainment system. The cuisine on board (Y) is excellent and the staff are very friendly. There is no evidence of racism as far as I have seen. Singapore Airlines' are also very punctual and as you say sometimes are earlier than schedule.

2) Now for the bad part, the seat pitch is 32"

I have seen F/A yelled at old lady before because, the F/A can't understand taiwanese.

CI is very biased toward foreigner, plus their lousy safety record, CI has no business being ranked when the other Taiwanese carrier EVA is significantly better in all areas.

Asiana is in no way associated with Korean Air.

If you have only flown then Three times then how can you make a judgment like that?? You said you flew on the A319 with Korean air?? That is a whole lot of Crap!!!! Korean Air donot operate the A319 and never have. Don't think we are fools. You most probably have made up your routes with them. Maybe Asiana is bad but i canot say anything as i have never flown them but if i got the chance i would as Korean service is amongst the best in the world.

So think about what you write and then maybe people will believe you!!

Dang.. Airnewzealand... you just said the exact words i were going to say to NEflyer. And NEflyer, with Korean Air having a wrecked PTV in prestige class never happened, nor will it ever happen, they would always fix it before the flight would be in it's boarding process. Im sure that some of the things you said before were true, but for you to make up more things as you type along, just makes you look like a fool.

"If you have only flown then Three times then how can you make a judgment like that??"

I feel that three round trips on flights of 12-13hrs in duration is plenty to give an insight to their services. I never said I hated either airline, I was merely unsatisfied with my experiences.

"You said you flew on the A319 with Korean air?? That is a whole lot of Crap!!!!"

I meant an A300, which is what they usually send down to CJU(Che Ju Island). I believe they also send down the A330. It a over a year ago and I didn't remember the exact A/C.

"You most probably have made up your routes with them."

I actually hang on to boarding pass stubs for about a year and so happen to have a boarding pass stub from a flight in Janaury 2000.

The PTV was not wrecked, it was not working properly in the first row. My sister was in the next row and had hers working properly.

All that I have said was in no way made up. I believe it's the other way around. You guys are the "fools" for being in denial about the poor services offered by Asiana and Korean Air. I can only guess that either of you haven't had a chance to experience other airlines. Whatever the case may be, I am not here to start flaming your "#1" airline in the world. I have posted my insight and opinions based on experiences with the two airlines.

NEflyer, I thought you flew prestige class? Your stub shows economy. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but you shouldn't expect much on a SEL-NRT run. It's a short flight meant to pack as many people as possible- especially the economy seats as your ticket stub shows. I've flown CO quite a lot, and I do get my fair share of delays and cancellations, but I don't ditch them because of a couple bad experiences. That's the price I'm willing to pay for my economy seat. If you eliminate an airline for every bad experience, you'll run out of one to fly pretty quickly. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your flights- because I've enjoyed all my flights and they are my first choice when it comes to trans-pacific flights.

AsianaAir- relax. You obviously disagree with NEflyer but there's no room for profanity in this forum. I know you don't usually post messages in such demeanor, so I'll just ignore your post this time around seeing how people can lose tempers.

My list for top Asian Airlines?

KE
SQ
OZ

Those are my top 3. I'm biased because I had the privilege of living in Korea for a few years and had many chances to fly KE and OZ. But who isn't biased in this forum anyways?

2. Singapore.
3. AirNZ

Qantas 1st, for aircraft, service, SAFETY!!!!!!!!, and comfort. With over 110 jet and 40 regional aircraft and not one accident for 80 years, they have my vote. They make some of those Asian airlines look really small, powerless and insignificant.

RE: Watewate

Wed Jan 31, 2001 2:53 pm

About the boarding pass stub, which was the last flight that I was on with KE(connecting onto a DL flight to PDX from NRT). I was booked on presitge in September of 1998, due to the Northwest strike. We were originally booked on World Business Class, but due to cancelleations, NW put us on KE to SFO. I had to mail those boarding pass stubs to NW Worldperks for mileage credit. Well, that's the reasoning behind hte boarding pass.. If I were able to hang onto the prestige stubs, then I woudlve been able to show those. KE 001, was not a full flight, it was meant to continue on into LAX after a layover in NRT.

I agree with you on that it takes more than so many flights on a particular airline to get a feel for how their services are. I've had bad experiences on just about every airline that I've flown on, but I still have my preffered carriers(like everyone else). I try to spend most of my flying on Star Alliance carriers(AC, SQ and UA) and recently One World Carriers(AA and CX), which leaves KE and OZ out. The main reasons that I flew on KE or OZ in the past was to find out what their services were like, at others times I used them for short-haul flights for connecting flight on other carriers and at least resort when I get re-routed on them.

I in no means meant for anyone to take my comments the wrong way. As I've said before, they're based on my experiences and are of my opinion only(isn't everyone entitled to their own opinion?). It may differ from what others have experienced with the particular airlines.

If your last flight was on KE in January 2000, then you have yet to experience their Personnal TV's. There are two aircrafts already released with them operating in them. Why not give them another try. Also Asiana Airlines... I have heard very good things about them.

Korean Air is in no way my Fav airline. It maybe in my top Five but no way my fav.

How can you make a Judgement that i have only travelled that airline?? I have travelled many airlines in my life and plan to keep trying. You donot know me so you cannot go around saying that i have probably only flown KE.

Like you said, you like SQ. I have had bad experiences on that airline but i will still give them a shot...... You just never know.

I know everybody is entitled to their opinion but your story seemed very strange to me and mot probably AsianAirlines.

AsianaAirlines.... I back you 110%.

If you found PTV on your seat doesn't work properly, there can't be any airline that can solve. I haven't heard that an airline who put electric technician in flight. Did you mean that KE doesn't maintain its inflight equipments? I believe not. And all same for all other airlines. You can find SQ's PTV has problem, and no F/A can answer.

I cannot mention about other poor experiences because my last international flight with KE was several years ago. That's your experience and with no lie.

The service of Air New Zealand is very great! I had flown on their 767, 732, 733 ) Even through i had some problems with their seats ( those volume controls didn't work! ) and quite old seats. However their service is great! The feeling NZ F/A gave me is different from others. I can feel they are REAL KIND but not pretending. Maybe this is what the Kiwis are, KIND!!

RE: Best Airline.. Enough!

Ok, I think we have worn this out. Enough bickering. This is just for everyone to put in their input. Opinions are opinions, if you do not agree, it is okay. Let us move away from continuous entries from the same people bickering back and forth. Everyone has their choice for their reason, enough said.

My ranking would go like this

1. Qantas.
2. Singapore.
3. AirNZ

Qantas 1st, for aircraft, service, SAFETY!!!!!!!!, and comfort. With over 110 jet and 40 regional aircraft and not one accident for 80 years, they have my vote. They make some of those Asian airlines look really small, powerless and insignificant. <

Qantas 744 overran runway at BKK not too long ago.

It is not accident free as you make it out to be.
 
Singapore 777

Chiawei,

The overrun at BKK was an incident not an accident, the aircraft was not written off and no one was killed.

>>Qantas 744 overran runway at BKK not too long ago.

It is not accident free as you make it out to be. <<

I think everyone would have to agree that, Qantas is the most accident free airline in the world, and a global leader in aviation safety.

QFTJT  Wow! QFA380  Wow!
