Which is the best airline for 2018? TripAdvisor determined it e listed a special ranking of the top 10 airlines, the “2018 Travellers’ choice award for airlines”. This ranking is calculated with an algorithm that analysed travellers reviews of the last 12 months.
Most of the airline companies are from Asia and there is an important rotation in the first position of the ranking. Singapore Airlines moved from the 2nd position to the top. Emirates moved from the top to the 3rd position. Air New Zealand is a new entry.
Here’s the top 10 and some reviews:
