IT WAS known as the Queen of the Skies before falling out of favour. But now this airline has stunned by beating the likes of Qatar Airways and Emirates to be named world’s best carrier.
SINGAPORE Airlines has booted Qatar from the number one spot in a prestigious list of the world’s best airlines by Skytrax.
It’s the latest proof that the golden oldie, which was once known as the Queen of the Skies before falling off the radar, has well and truly taken back its crown after undergoing a revamp.
Qatar ranked in second spot, down from number one last year, followed by ANA All Nippon Airways, Emirates and EVA Air in fifth position. Cathay Pacific ranked sixth, followed by Lufthansa, Hainan Airlines, Garuda Indonesia and Thai Airways.
Our very own Qantas fell just outside the top 10 list, coming in at 11th place on the rankings, which is known as the “Oscars of the Aviation Industry”.
