This is part one of a two part series on the world’s best airlines and airports. Today we’ll tackle airlines and tomorrow, airports.

Recently the website AirHelp published their 2018 report on the world’s best airlines. There are a lot of airline rankings out there but this one is a little different. It has an unique rating system.

AirHelp Score rates airlines and airports worldwide on the following key factors:

These days there’s a big variance between the world’s best airlines and the world’s worst. Consumers will vote with their pocket books. There aren’t too many surprises on the list. Gulf carriers and Asian leaders like Singapore Airlines do well. Of course American carriers lag far behind their international competitors.
