The Worlds Worst (& Best) Airlines

Fri Apr 21, 2006 10:45 pm

Last night I was thinking, what is the worlds worst airline & what is the worlds best airline? So I thought I would ask the members of a.net!

There will be three catagories: North America & South America, Europe & Africa & Asia & Oceania. Members will vote what there worst & best airline is in which ever category[s] they choose. On the evening of Saturday 22nd April (BST) the votes will be counted for each category, the 3 winners & 3 losers will go head-to-head for the final votes. The two with the most votes for each category will win or lose.

GET VOTING!

Categories seem confused. I'll just say the following:

best: British Airways
worst: Delta Air Lines
fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

Thats my best guess anyway.

Quoting FutureUALpilot (Reply 3):
N. and S. America are one category
Europe and Africa are one category
Asia and Oceana are one category

North America - American Airlines (not flown a South American airline)
Europe - British Airways (not flown an African airline)
Asia and Oceana - tough, Cathay Pacific or Qantas.
I do enjoy a spot of flying, especially when it's not in economy!
