The 10 Best (and Worst) Airlines in the World

The 10 Best (and Worst) Airlines in the World

Columbus Airport parking

For the past year or so, airlines have gotten a bad rap. From the video of a doctor being dragged off a United flight to the recent news of a dog that passed away during a Delta flight, airline reputations have been on the downslide. So when it comes to traveling, this leaves us with the question: “What airlines should I fly?”

To answer that, we have passenger rights company AirHelp. AirHelp analyzed three important consumer factors of every airline: on-time performance, quality of amenities, and how the airline handles flight delay compensation claims. After taking these factors into account, the company came up with a list of 70 airlines and ranked them from best to worst.
