Skytrax today revealed its top 10 airlines of the world for 2018. Surprise, surprise – it did not include one single carrier from the Americas, and only one European carrier managed to creep its way in.
Lufthansa was the only European airline in the top 10, positioning itself at number 7. Otherwise, it would have been a perfect sweep by the Asian carriers. 9 out of 10 were from the Asian continent, with Singapore Airlines claiming the top spot. It dislodged Qatar Airways where the latter was at the helm for a few of years.
