1st A. Worst Major Airline SA: Round 1 - Mena

Sat Dec 10, 2005 5:44 am

Rules again:

1/ 8-16 major airlines in the continent are chosen. Strictly LCCs are excluded and so are pure regionals. If you want, you can PM me your choice.
2/ Voting is based on play-offs. Each member gets one point and based on final points, the worse airline moves on.
3/ You're chosing the overall product of the airline - since most of us travel economy, a weighted average would automatically work out. Again, you're choosing the WORST overall airline to you based on (lack of) service.

Ok, here is the random drawing for the first regional competition:

Award B: Worst Airline in Middle East-North Africa (MENA)

= Probably true for some of the obscure airlines - but you vote based also on your friend and family experience and other general factors.

Cheers,
