Australia’s leading consumer advocacy group, Choice, have surveyed Aussie air traveller’s levels of satisfaction, and the results are in. Dang it, Singapore Airlines came out on top for best airline covering the the UK leg, with my employer Emirates taking third place only (URL: http://www.news.com.au/travel/news/australias-favourite-airline-revealed/story-e6frfq80-1225848328840).
I’d like to add, British Airways was voted last. And it seems there’s more than enough negative QANTAS press around presently to keep them out of the top places, e.g. A380 tyres bursting, and engineers striking over the Easter break.
One positive result, Emirates was deemed best for travel between Australia and “Unzed” (Australia’s neighbour, New Zealand). Thanks Kiwis! This is fantastic considering the huge number of carriers crossing the ditch these days and the fierce competition amongst them.
Come on Australia, get with the programme.
