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.
This was the return journey home from our 12-day visit to Argentina which was booked several months in advance redeeming reward points from our Air Canada Aeroplan frequent flyer account. Given the great distance and long journey time from Canada down to Argentina comfort was a priority. So we decided to splurge treating ourselves to Business Class reward tickets. We actually boarded the flight at its origin at Ezeiza Airport in Buenos Aires Argentina for the short two-hour hop across the Andes to Santiago Chile.
And that`s just economy. In Diamond class travellers are treated to the "revolutionary" Diamond Seat which rotates 180 degrees contains a 23` personal LCD video screen has a six-way movement headrest with built-in massage facility and is able to convert into luxurious 6 foot 1 inch flat bed. The zone even has a coatroom and mini-bar. Seats in the Pearl zone also convert into flat beds or "business-beds" as they are called.
