According to the annual Skytrax World Airline Awards the world`s best airline is... Emirates! Finally the Dubai-based airline reclaimed its number one spot after a decade when it was voted in 2001 for its first world`s best airline of the year award and after which defended the title on the following year. In addition to garnering the overall top honors Emirates had also bagged two other awards-the best Middle Eastern airline award and the best in-flight entertainment award.
Air Canada provides its Business Class passengers with very comfortable warm and somewhat heavy grade comforters instead of thinner grade blankets provided on other airlines. This is a very nice unique touch that ads to increased comfort while sleeping when the cabin can get quite cool on long-haul flights. That said the cabin was kept at a perfect temperature for the entire flight (not too hot and not too cool). Personal DVD players and movies were available for Business Class passengers` use during the flight the in-flight pantry was fully stocked with sandwiches snacks and drinks for between meal cravings and passengers were invited to help themselves as needed.
Several areas are in need of improvement: The lack of pre-boarding Business Class passengers in Santiago the lack of communication from the flight deck the inadequate magazine selection for Business Class passengers the lack of a pre-departure drink service and the lack of priority baggage handling in Toronto for the Business Class passenger`s baggage are small points on their own but detract as a whole from what would have otherwise been a flawless flight. As such the flight is rated an 8.5 out of 10.
