What is the best airline to fly with?
Well according to Which!, the answer depends on which country you intend visiting.
As the summer holidays kick off in England and Wales, our dear friends at Which!! surveyed a load of people as part of their airline review (the results of which are only available to paid subscribers) and have compiled ranking lists of both short- and long-haul airlines. They collected 5,622 responses relating to short haul flights and 3,430 responses relating to long haul flights, and airlines were rated on things like the check-in and boarding process, seat comfort, cabin temperature, as well as overall value for money. Each airline ranked had at least 30 responses.
But never fear, Which!!! have released details of the top, and bottom, performers to some of the most popular holiday destinations for UK travellers- and the results show that different airlines perform better for different destinations. There is, however, less variation in the lowest performers.
So here is the list of best and worst performers, as rated by Which!!!! members, for eight holiday spots. From British Airways' good showing, it suggests that, higher prices might also equal a better experience, but not in all cases, as Jet2.com and Thomson Airways prove.
1 Some flights require a change at Istanbul
2 Some flights are shared with British Airways. Also, Ryanair do not fly to the US.
