TripAdvisor has revealed the winners of its 2018 Travellers’ Choice Awards for Airlines — and some of the results are pretty surprising.
The winners were chosen based on airline reviews submitted on TripAdvisor Flights or via one of TripAdvisor’s review collection partners from February 2017 to February 2018. It took both quantity and quality of reviews into account.
While Asia holds the highest number of winners in the 10 best airlines in the world, one UK airline made the list — and it wasn’t British Airways.
Scroll down to see the 10 best airlines on the planet, as chosen by travellers, ranked in ascending order.

10. Korean Air, South Korea.
One TripAdvisor reviewer said: “We travelled from Chicago to Hong Kong with our toddler, and could not have been more pleased with the experience. Basic economy on KA is basically economy plus on other (especially US-based) airlines. The flight staff actually made me like the experience, rather than detract from it. I’ll be flying KA whenever possible in the future.”
9. Azul, Brazil.
“Azul is a lovely airline, employing a fleet of Embraer regional jets offering 2 + 2 seating,” according to one user. “Service is efficient and you always get a package of ‘aviõezinhos’ (airplane shaped gummy bears) to chew on the short domestic hops.”
8. Qatar Airways.
One reviewer who claims to be a frequent traveller said: “Qatar is one of my favourite airlines to travel with. The bar in a380 (business class) is the best. The service regardless of class is fab. The treatment of frequent fliers is great… food very tasty for economy … and very big portions… Entertainment is top notch. They are one of my favourite airlines for eco travel.”
