As we took our seats 2D and 2F in a full Business-Class cabin National Post and Globe and Mail newspapers were handed out along with a Spanish language Chilean paper. A bottle of water was waiting in each seat for each passenger however there was no pre-departure drink service for the Business-Class passengers (orange juice champagne wine etc) as is standard on other airlines. I decided the check the magazine rack for some interesting in-flight reading material only to find Canadian Living Chatellaine Canada Food and Wine and Canadian Fishing; titles that are of little interest to most business travelers. There were no business and news magazines such as The Economist Business Week or Time which one would naturally expect to be provided. Our flight was under the command of Captain Green and he did not provide the passengers with a welcome aboard announcement telling us about flying time planned routing enroute weather or weather at destination.
To round up the other winners of the world`s best airlines with their respective awards: Air Asia won as The Best Economical Airline; Japan`s ANA bagged the prize having the cleanest cabins; The Best Economy Class was awarded to Garuda Indonesia; Air New Zealand took The Best Premium Economy; Malaysia Airlines` Satay Service was adjudged for having the Best Signature Dish; The Best Business Class was captured by Qatar Airways while Etihad Airways settled for Best First Class.
This is the starting point from which airlines can then build their own identity commissioning companies like Design Q to work on quality aircraft interior styling material specification and bespoke trimming for VIP interiors or airline cabin interiors. Upholstery specification consultants are important contributors to an airlines image.
