Crystal ball gaze as site names top 10 airlines of 2019

March 19, 2019 Headline News No Comments Email Email

The best airlines of 2018 have already been declared last July, but which carriers will take the honours in 2019? One aviation website has dared to go out on a limb – perhaps consulting a crystal ball – and name its list.

In a gala ceremony at the Langham Hotel in London last July, airline leaders and top airline management from around the world gathered to receive their 2018 World Airline Awards. Referred to by media as the “Oscars of the aviation industry”, the World Airline Awards are held in high esteem for the clarity of process and independence, with no outside sponsorship or external influence.

Singapore Airlines was voted the World’s Best Airline by customers for a fourth time in the awards history.

The Top 10 for 2018 were:

  1. Singapore Airlines
  2. Qatar Airways
  3. ANA All Nippon Airways
  4. Emirates
  5. EVA Air
  6. Cathay Pacific
  7. Lufthansa
  8. Hainan Airlines
  9. Garuda Indonesia
  10. Thai Airways

With 2019 not even three months old, aviation website – which is based in Lithuania and specialises in employment in the aviation industry – has dared to predict the 2019 list, which is not due to be announced until July.

According to the prediction, the top airline for 2019 will be…

(drum roll)

Singapore Airlines (again).

Here’s’s forecast for the Top 10 in 2019.

  1. Singapore Airlines
  2. All Nippon Airways
  3. Qatar
  4. Cathay Pacific
  5. Emirates
  6. EVA Air
  7. Hainan Airlines
  8. Lufthansa
  9. Garuda Indonesia
  10. Swiss International Air Lines

The site’s reasoning can be gleaned (to some degree) here.

How accurate is it? Time will tell!
