The worlds top 10 airlines of 2023 năm 2024

Singapore Airlines has been voted 2023's best airline, taking the prestigious title over the previous seven-time winner Qatar Airways.

Airline ranking company Skytrax releases what it calls an "independent and impartial" annual list of the top 100 airlines around the world based on data from an online traveler satisfaction survey. It's an aviation Super Bowl. And this year — as is usually the case — the US was a big letdown: only one US carrier made the top 20 list.

Here's what travelers believe are the 20 best airlines according to Skytrax's list.

20. Delta Air Lines

Last year, Delta came in at 24 on Skytrax's prestigious list. This year, it's the only US carrier to make the top 20 ranks.

The second-best US-based carrier — United Airlines — came in at 49th.

19. Air New Zealand
