Qantas Drops Out Of Top 20 Airline Rankings As World’s Best Named


In a shocking turn of events, Qantas, Australia’s flagship carrier, has fallen out of the top 20 airline rankings in the latest survey by Skytrax, a leading airline review and ranking website. The news comes as a blow to the airline, which has long been considered one of the best in the world.

The Skytrax World Airline Awards, often referred to as the “Oscars of the aviation industry,” are based on passenger reviews and ratings from over 20 million travelers across the globe. The awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious and respected in the industry.

This year’s survey saw Qatar Airways take the top spot, followed closely by Singapore Airlines and ANA All Nippon Airways. The top 20 airlines were dominated by Asian carriers, with only a handful of European and American airlines making the cut.

Qantas, which has consistently ranked in the top 10 in previous years, slipped to 23rd place in the latest survey. The airline’s decline in ranking is attributed to a range of factors, including increased competition from low-cost carriers, declining customer satisfaction, and a series of high-profile incidents, including a mid-air engine failure on a flight from Los Angeles to Sydney last year.

The news is a significant blow to Qantas, which has long prided itself on its safety record and high-quality service. The airline has faced increasing pressure in recent years to cut costs and improve efficiency, which may have contributed to the decline in customer satisfaction.

“We are disappointed to have fallen out of the top 20, but we recognize that the airline industry is highly competitive and constantly evolving,” said a Qantas spokesperson. “We are committed to improving our service and product offerings to ensure we regain our position as one of the world’s best airlines.”

The Skytrax survey also highlighted the growing dominance of Asian carriers in the industry. Qatar Airways, which took the top spot, has invested heavily in its product and service offerings in recent years, including the introduction of a new business class product and a state-of-the-art airport hub in Doha.

“Qatar Airways is thrilled to be named the world’s best airline,” said Akbar Al Baker, the airline’s CEO. “We are committed to providing our passengers with the highest level of service and comfort, and we will continue to innovate and improve our offerings to stay ahead of the competition.”

The full top 20 airline rankings are as follows:

1. Qatar Airways
2. Singapore Airlines
3. ANA All Nippon Airways
4. Emirates
5. Japan Airlines
6. Cathay Pacific
7. Turkish Airlines

The Skytrax World Airline Awards are widely regarded as the most prestigious and respected in the industry, and are seen as a benchmark of excellence for airlines around the world.
